We were really looking forward to try the cheesesteak at Saads, so we went over the first night we arrived in Philly. When we got there we found it quite busy (which is usually a good sign), when it was time to order we were...More

Arrived on a Monday around 8:00 and Saad's was BUSY! Possibly more so than usual due to the end of Ramadan celebration. Lamb shawarma sandwich and chicken shush tawook platter were very filling and tasty, two of us did not come close to finishing, so...More

This is a great place for cheesesteaks! So many things on the menu are also very good. It can get busy sometimes.

The food at Saad's is incredible; one of the best halal places to indulge in across the country! I had the chicken maroosh and it was outright spectacular! I also tried the philly cheese steak which was nothing less of magnificent on its own either....More

Be careful what you order here! You will get an absolutely massive amount of tasty food for your money! A meal is really two meals! Really nice people. Nice atmosphere. Nice clientele. Halal. Bit of a rough neighborhood, but nothing out of the ordinary.
