This is the first restaurant I have ever reviewed, but I felt like had to because of the amazing food and experience I had here. First, the customer service was even better then the food and the food was amazing. The owner is very friendly and helpful. He gave excellent recommendations and was just overall a pleasure to talk to. We had the lamb and chicken bbq plate and the beef shawarma. Both were delicious and large servings. I live in Boston, but every time I am in Springfield I’ll be sure to come back here.
Very friendly owners! The shwarma- both the beef and chicken were tender and tasty, and the pickles and sauces on them very good. The real show stopper was their Kanafa! Whoa. It is made fresh to order, so we got to eat our food while they finished making it. A HUGE portion for two people. Warm, sweet and so good. With a few different options in West Springfield to get Middle Eastern food, Ahalna lives up to its hype.
Great food and nice staff! Their Znood is the best!
Wonderful food. Wonderful people.You have probably driven by this eatery one hundred times and may not have even noticed it. Yet hidden behind its austere storefront is some of the most delicious food you will ever eat! The menu is small but diverse. The prices are reasonable. The owner and his wife are welcoming and friendly. Also, the portions are HUGE!I recommend the lamb and chicken kebobs with rice. Also their sandwiches are unbelievable. There are practically as large as a standard dinner plate. They may have the best chicken sandwich of all time. It has to be tried to be believed (sorry Popeyes and Chik Fil-A, you are not in the same class at all as Ahalna). Please, do not forget the Znood for desert; it's divine.Ahalna has it all-- price, service, flavor, portions. Once you find them, you will be a happy repeat customer. They are a gem!
This is by far the best Middle eastern restaurant I have encountered in a long time. The owner is very friendly, generous and will always welcome you with a smile! I came here for the first time a month ago, today I came back with friends from to have it again. Driving all the way from CT and it’s totally worth the trip. It’s amazing as always! Thank you for the great service!
Incredible stop off of the highway! Definitely recommend for a party in your mouth. Owner is great too. Will definitely be back if driving this way!
Best Iraqi food style I have ever had. The owner is friendly and welcoming. We tried a huge Burger so delicious . Also one lamb and kefta kebab massive portion to die for it actually worth every penny. I will drive back from CT to have a food feast from this lovely family business restaurant.
Excellent experience! Very tasty and attractive food! Very friendly service! All very good! Sorry for not having a photo in my review, the food looked so good that there was no time to shoot!
Food was awesome! Will definitely go back!
You never know what you'll get when Google and Yelp tell you where to pull off for a roadside dinner. But this was a truly solid choice. Vote from the mixed BBQ was that the chicken was the best. I only had chicken, and it was certainly quite good, although a bit on the salty side. Tons of food - I only ate half and that's without touching the bread.
I just tried this place today and really enjoyed their chicken shawarma sandwich. It's one of the best in the area! Their chicken tawooq platter is awesome as well! Highly recommend it to others!
Enjoyed a delicious takeout dinner from Ahalna Foods tonight. The owner was extremely friendly and welcoming. The food was flavorful, authentic and filling. Would definitely go back!!
Reasonably priced. Portions are great. Food is tasty. What I need to see are beverages. Also owner was friendly. I will be back. Oh, dessert is awesome. Learned that there was more than baklava.
Food is amazing! Service with a smile seems to be their motto. Was greeted with such kindness and energy that i will definitely be coming back!
definitely worth it. the food is very delicious!
