I used to work on 4th street and friends and I would walk to Safier's for lunch very often. I typically only get the chicken shawarma sandwich but my friends often tried their meals & specials. Lots of food! Excellent authentic Indian spices. Now even though I do not work downtown I will very often make a trip just for... More

I ordered a falafel sandwich. It was huge, delicious, cheap, and served fast. This was, without a doubt, the best meal I had while spending 4 days in downtown Louisville for a convention. Highly recommended.

Their Chicken Shawarma is the best one with hamoos i just loved it. If you visit to louisville should try it's in downtown louisville on 4th street.

The food I got at Safier was amazing. I came into the shop a little after 8PM after 8PM, after a long day. Having never been to Louisville, I wanted something familiar and close- Safier fit both of those criteria. I have had some amazing Mediterranean food before- both in the states and in Europe. I never expected to find... More

The chicken shawarma was great! There was lots of well seasoned meat. The staff was friendly and helpful. And the price was very reasonable. We would definitely go back!

This food is SO GOOD. I went for a later lunch, and the place was a little crowded, but service was smooth and fairly quick. I had the palak paneer, which was on special, and it was fabulous- creamy, spinach-y, with just a touch of spice. Along with the fresh salad and pita bread, it was very filling, as well.... More

I was in town on business and ate here twice. Each meal was delicious, and the people who work here couldn't be friendlier. It's not a fine dining establishment, so you wouldn't go here for the ambiance. But if you like mediterranean food and are looking for a nice, casual restaurant that serves great food at reasonable prices, definitely put... More

I travel to Louisville at least once a year for work, and lunch from Safier is always at the top of my to-do list. My workmates have the benefit of enjoying Safier weekly, so I make my yearly visit count! I always get the chicken shawarma and it never, ever disappoints. Based on the reaction of my friends, everything here... More

Elite ’16 5.0 star rating 7/23/2016 1 check-in Several people were lined up to order when we arrived. That was a good sign for a Mediterranean deli mid afternoon on a Saturday.
