Palmyra, named after the ancient city in Syria, opened in the Lower Haight in 2011, serving authentic Syrian-style cuisine in a friendly, cozy environment. Our upscale décor and great value are a reason to come in, and our home-style Middle Eastern food will give you reason to return again and again. We are a multi generational family-owned business, and we run Palmyra in that spirit. Our owner, Mohammed Eltawil, takes pride in offering the freshest Mediterranean food in town. When you dine with us, we always treat you like you’re a part of the family.
Our food is fresh Syrian home cooking made by hand every day. Come see why our customers say we’re the best kebab house in town. The grilled lamb kebab, along with our Mediterranean-spiced rotisserie chicken, served with warm, pillowy pita bread and smooth, house-made garlic sauce, are reasons enough to visit Palmyra.
Add in our savory tahini-laced hummus and our popular falafel and dolmas, and you’ve got a delicious Mediterranean feast. Our portions are generous, and we offer many healthy options for vegetarians. Palmyra is a great place to share small plates with a group, so bring your friends along for a friendly, affordable taste of the Middle East.
Palmyra is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day. To truly experience Syrian cuisine, stop in early and enjoy unusual Syrian breakfast treats like foul moudamas, warm fava beans mixed with garlic, olive oil, tomatoes and parsley, along with classic American breakfast dishes. Whatever you choose, you will enjoy excellent flavors, gracious, courteous service and extraordinary value.
We offer catering, takeout and delivery, and we will accommodate special orders with advance notice. Come visit Palmyra soon, and enjoy our warm Syrian hospitality. You will see why our customers call us a “neighborhood gem.” We’re conveniently located on Haight Street, and we’re open early until late, Monday through Friday, and Sunday, from 7am to 10pm and on Saturday from 9am to 10pm.
