Reviewing Salaam's restaurant reviews

Reader comment on item: How to Live as Long as Methuselah

Submitted by Dave (United States), Oct 28, 2021 at 21:41

Salaam gets 3.5 stars from 613 reviews on Yelp. Scanning through them reveals a mixed bag. Some people love everything about it, while others are far less enthusiastic. The positive reviews emphasize the tasty Arabic style food, genial service and great vegetarian dishes, while the negatives find the service poor, the food dry, tasteless, unseasoned and the orders messed up. The bean pie seems to be a big hit.
The restaurant is located in a sketchy area and one diner found that heroic.
I didn't encounter any reviews that commented on the dubious ideology behind the culinary inspiration, but then black racism can be overlooked according to today's politically correct victimology. I doubt there'd be such insouciance if their mirror image organization, The Aryan Nations, opened a place. I'd like to see its reviews, before it burned down. Let's celebrate diversity, and the double standard!
