Tried and true, Sultan's Market always pulls through. Delicious, quick shwarma and falafel for under $10.

Sultan's has so many great options, we enjoy the falafel sandwich and the salad bar has many different options such as wrapped stuffed grape leaves.

We were on a food tour of Bucktown/Wicker Park which included a falafel sandwich at Sultan's Market. We sampled food at several other restaurants on the tour (all good) and Sultan's was my favorite! I would like to come back and try it again!

You can eat SUPER cheaply here, and the food is pretty good. You get what you pay for, but you can't really beat the value at this place, certainly not in Wicker Park. Nice spot. Cash only.

Every time I'm in Chi I have to eat here. I've tried nearly everything on the menu - veggie, meat, chicken - and it is ALL fantastic. The salads and sides will not disappoint. The interior is spacious with plenty of booths and windows. All of the employees have been nothing but awesome - friendly, helpful and efficient. Highly recommended!

The food was pretty good, I used to go to Sultan Market a few years ago so I think I'm a bit spoiled. The portions use to be twice as big, but I still think it's a good value for the price.

The place is unassuming on the outside but it is cozy and nicely appointed inside (not a luxury restaurant, more of a neighborhood joint but it is nice and the food is unbeatable. Marco was EXCELLENT. Super customer oriented and friendly, courteous, and helpful. He made every effort to make us want to come back... Which we will for sure.... More

Okay, what is the hype? Seriously? This place was average with the service and the food was bland. To be frank, I’m middle eastern so I know my middle eastern cuisine. The chicken shawarma was not that great, it was bland, and tasteless. When ordering be careful in what you are looking for a sandwich or a dinner plate, the... More

I'm sorry we missed the mark a little bit this time, Logan. I'm glad you enjoyed the hummus and tabouli but it sounds like we could have done better with the shawerma. I appreciate the feedback -- it's always good to know where we can improve. I hope you'll come back again and give us a second chance to impress.... More

Cheap, tasty middle eastern eats! No frills, but great, fast service and good tunes too. We got chicken schwarma, extra pitas, Jerusalem salad, and more for just $17. Plus all the times we've been in they had awesome music playing. :)

Located in Wicker Park, Sultan's Market offers a variety of fresh Middle Eastern cuisine. Since 1995, we've been cooking up Chicago's best falafel. If it's not our falafel, it's freakin' awful.
