Excellent food, friendly and efficient staff, and a clean and open atmosphere. This is one of my favorite restaurants in the country. It is in a food court and serves like a cafeteria but the quality outshines everything many high end restaurants. It is expensive for the location but cheap for the type of food.

8 months agoThis place is highly recommended. Loved each and every dish in my vegetarian platter made with right amount of spices.Kameel walked on the floor and greeted all the customers. BINGO if you get to see Kameel as he offers a dish to every customer on the house.My dips were extra scrumptious and would definitely return if I’m around.

My go to for yummy Mediterranean foods. The owners are so nice and welcome. The staff are all friendly. They are all so appreciative and supportive of DragonCon attendees.

We come here every year for Dragoncon. This was our first time going to this restaurant and I can honestly say I wish I'd eaten all our meals here instead of other places in the food court. The food is fresh, flavorful, and very filling.

The flavors of the food popped in my mouth. It was great food. The people there very nice and happy to answer any questions. It's popular and also very busy. Worth the wait though.

By far the BEST food in ATL and the service is absolutely great! I've been having lunch at Aviva at least once a week since they opened in Peachtree Center (minus a brief time during covid shutdown).I've tried everything on the menu and nothing disappoints. The falafel is the greatest I've ever eaten. Salmon, rosemary chicken and the shawarma are all spectacularly seasoned and cooked to perfection . The soups, bread, veggies and each of the other sides are all made fresh daily and so good.I appreciate the way Kameel greets all his customers with a smile and the sincere way he appreciates them for stopping by to have a healthy meal.


Just amazing and fresh Mediterranean food! 2 days in a row, for lunch! So many choices of sauces and combinations. Great spot in downtown Atlanta!

I know Kameel from 1990, back when he had Kameels at Colony Square, his food has been quite tasty, even during the busy convention time. His vegetable lasagna and falafel sandwich has been my favorite for years.

Fast, friendly, and delicious! Had the falafel plate with lentils, tabbouleh, and hummus. The falafel was so good. The lentils and hummus were also tasty. The tabbouleh was good but I like a bit more grain in mine. The pita was hard and very chewy. The owner is super friendly and the staff seemed to genuinely like their job. Recommended for a great quick lunch if you're in the area.

If you are lucky Kameel will greet you with a generous bowl of sumptous goodness as soon as you arrive. His smile and laughter is contagious. The salmon grilled on the spot was the most amazing!!

This place is a real gem in downtown Atlanta. Service is cafeteria-style and very efficient, and the food is just fabulous across the board. The falafel is hands-down the best I've ever had, and all the sides were also great. I got a walnut baklava to go and that was super tasty too. Both times I ate lunch there, they were giving out free samples of a lentil soup to everyone waiting in line to order (the line does get long but it's worth the wait) - and I didn't realize it right away but on the first day, the friendly man handing out soup was Kameel himself. No wonder everything about this restaurant works so well - you can feel the love and dedication put into making it great!

Great customer service. Very friendly and helpful. The staff and owner where so nice and talked with us while we ordered. They gave each of us a cup of really delicious vegan soup as we waited for the main entrees.We had 3 platters 2 with rosemary chicken and one with chicken shawmara, Baba Ghanoush, Tabouli, Mmjadara, cabbage slaw, sweet potatoes, grilled vegetables, roasted potatoes, rice, hummus, falafel and pistachio baklava. Everything was great. I can see why this place has such high ratings. They deserve it.

Great family run lunch place in the heart of Downtown in Peachtree Center— best food around that’s not a fine-dining restaurant—
