After a night out or a busy shift at work I love to go to Safad's for my kebab. They offer absolutely stunning kebabs with a nice selection of fillings, and are happy to cover my food with silly amounts of mayo!! They offer a nice range of pizza's which are prepared and cooked right in front of you.
The staff are extremely friendly and very polite. Once you become a regular they always say hello, and in some cases know your order before you do!!
Highly recommend this place.
Safad is an ordinary-looking pizza and kebab shop in the Gay Village which has attracted a fair few plaudits on review sites for the quality, freshness and healthiness of their offerings.
£3 falafel wrap from here was good quality and the central location of Safad makes it worthy of special mention - this was my lunch stop whilst doing a training day on Piccadilly Gardens.
Flatbread for the wrap looked to be khoubz from a packet and warmed up on the chargriller. The falafel seemed fresh enough. On these two points, this places Safad slightly behind Atlas Shawarma where the bread is fresh naan and also I always see the falafel being made to order at Atlas.
Safad's trimmings such as hummus, tabbouleh and yoghurt mint sauce are above average, but still suffer from the unwritten law that kebabs shops must use only iceberg lettuce and pale tomatoes.
But my overall verdict is that £3 is outstanding value for a substantial, freshly-made lunch.
The décor is well-worn vinyl on the floor, formica tables etc. But for me is the integrity and warmth of the staff, plus the predominantly Arab clientele which give Sadaf a charm which beats many flashier places.
I would definitely go back for falafel or maybe a pizza.
I'm a big fan of the falafel here! Served fresh on flatbread with tabbouleh, hummus, olives, chilis and chili sauce all for £3. Much better than the tasteless lettuce, cucumber and yogurt concoctions you get in most places. The spinach fatayer isn't bad either, though the spinach had most definitely come from a tin - prefer the one from Jaffa in Rusholme.
The best take away houmus in Manchester!!!
Delicious, wide range of food ranging from healthy (pitta, falafel,salad, houmus) to the downright junk (pizza, kebab, burgers)...Super friendly staff! Great prices, always a weird mix of people- gay village, locals, students, alternative folk from Satans. Less likely to kick off outside that places on Piccadilly/Portland Street! A few tables and chairs inside, clean. Close to the bus stops.
Only been in at the day time, and it was really nice. Spicy lamb fatayer yum yum
