Hayes & Kebab is my go-to place when searching for a light lunch. It can get a little crowded during lunch hours, but there's always outside seating. You find yourself a table, order from the register, and wait for your food to be given to you at your table.

The first time I came here was after the Giant's parade. My friend thought her plate came with a salad so she asked the waiter. Unfortunately her plate didn't come with one but he was nice to bring one out for her free of charge! I ALWAYS get the salmon kebab plate, which comes with two skewers of salmon, two types of rice, and a side salad. The salmon is never dry and never too charred tasting. You also get a piece of tasty bread.

Prices range from about $10-19 depending on what you get. I love this place because nothing is full of grease and is overall healthy. It also doesn't give me the draggy 3 o'clock break. Thumbs up!

Hayes & Kebab: Kurdish Wrap = Perfect Falafel!
February 11, 2009

Shh! It's a secret!
Just walk in casually, we don't want them to know that we know how good it is. Saunter over to the counter and discreetly pick up one of the paper menus beside it. Request the Falafel Wrap ($6.50) and if there are no seats inside, you can wait at a table outside. The presentation is beautiful, sliced diagonally and clean through, one half is balanced on top of the other. Crispy, creamy, steaming seductively it waits for you to sink your pearly whites into its gorgeous innards of sandwichness. One bite and you're gone... Oops, you almost told a passing stranger of its sandwich ecstasies within... Whoa, there laddie! Gotta keep this quiet! Phew, that was a close one. Self control, keep the lips sealed. Back to the felafel...

Good grief! Vegetables were never meant to taste this good, surely. If only mother had known to prepare them this way, you would have cleaned your plate every night. Take another bite, aah, there's something else in here, a hidden ingredient, this tastes extraordinary. The Brothers Tekin have added fava beans to the mix, as well as chick peas and other veggies and then they deep fry it all and that's as far as they will go in vouchsafing their family secret recipe... I did my best to pry it from both of them separately, one-on-one -- no good, the secret stays with them.

Kurds, you know, pictures all over the restaurant walls, from some part of Turkey. Big long knives in some of the pictures, no these guys don't want to give up their secrets to an outsider. They smile a lot and seem very friendly. People are lining up and eating everything off the menu, especially those kebabs and the dips. These rascals have even got the dessert crowd in here. Lured them in with Kurdish family recipe baklava and rice pudding made fresh on the premises daily. These guys have gone too far, and it's cheap too! Oh my G-d, please I asked you to keep it quiet or everybody will be in here!

Hayes & Kebab: for the falafel wrap of your dreams... and the rice pudding.

From the Editors
At this cute Mediterranean restaurant in the rising neighborhood-of-the-moment Hayes Valley, the attentive service, warm decor, and, yes, impeccably clean bathrooms offer a welcome departure from the down-and-dirty vibe of most falafel joints in the city. Hayes and Kebab offers a surprisingly expansive variety of Greek and Mediterranean fare that goes beyond the requisite gyros and falafel to include salads, wraps, sandwiches, and authentic sides such as babaganoush. Make sure to leave room for one of the restaurant's desserts: the homemade Kurdish baklava is pretty spectacular, and the homemade chocolate cake is another terrific choice. For libations, pick from a well-selected menu of domestic and imported beers and wines. Think of Hayes and Kebab as reliable and affordable alternative to the more expensive stalwarts that populate this area near the opera, ballet and symphony houses. –

Editorial Review
Kebab cravings are swiftly sated at this Mediterranean cafe in Hayes Valley.

Mediterranean casual dining for lunch and dinner

Hayes and Kebab Editorial Review – by Lorraine Sanders

In Short
After starting off with tender dolma or buttery spanakopita, diners partake in plates of marinated meats from the grill and warm lavash bread wraps. Salads on offer range from the traditional couscous and tabbouleh varieties to a very California concoction of spinach, gorgonzola and caramelized walnuts. Those who enjoy gyros and falafel with extra bite will want to request the house spicy sauce. Desserts include homemade cakes, Kurdish baklava and rice pudding. Beer and wine are available.

Insider Tips

The Extras
