Aviva by Kameel in downtown Atlanta is a fantastic spot. From the moment you walk in, you're greeted with friendly service usually by Kameel himself, the eccentric but very kind owner. The Mediterranean dishes are fresh and full of flavor, with highlights like the falafel,...hummus, and shawarma. You can really taste the quality and care put into it. The atmosphere makes it a great place for a quick lunch. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for delicious, wholesome and healthy food in Atlanta. Aviva by Kameel is definitely worth a visit!More

Employees accommodated for friend’s allergy and were almost free of any dietary restrictions. In addition, we didn’t know their closing hour and accidentally came late, but they still fed us an incredible meal!

We are attending a meeting at the Marriott and were looking for a quick bite for lunch. We walked over to see why this place was rated so highly. There was a line, that moved quickly. The vegetarian salad that was served while we were...in line was delicious. I had the chicken Shawerma while someone had the beef Shawerma. They threw in a falafel which was amazing. Everything was delicious and tasted like my mother made it - I am Lebanese and not always do places make food how it should be. 5 stars all the way. Excellent service as well.More

I’ve wanted to try this dining option the last few times I’ve been to Atlanta but there is always a line. I hopped in line today and was surprised how quickly it went. Staff brought samples of soup to enjoy while we waited our turn....My meal was one of the most flavorful and delicious meals I’ve ever enjoyed. Everything is fresh and prepared to perfection. The staff was friendly and made ordering my meal easy and fun. I highly recommend!More

Unbelievably good! I got the fish shwarma combo plate for lunch w/ roasted vegetables and lentils. The shwarma had shrimp, salmon and a seabass mix cooked in tomatoes and red onions. It was outstanding! Comes with a sauce that is also good for dipping vegetables....The owners greeted everyone waiting in line, while bean soup was delivered to those waiting to order. Definitely a great find in Peachtree Center!More

This restaurant is located in the Hub which seems to be a food court with a few businesses mixed in. I got there just after they opened and there was already a short line which I got in to and tried to get the lay...of the land. It reminded me a bit of CAVA or Chipotle where you choose your base, your protein and your toppings. I got the chicken shawarma salad with tomatoes, cucumbers, avocado, hummus and tzatziki on it. The owner was there and said I was picky like his wife which got a great reaction from the people in line. I also got to try a sample of their vegan soup which wasn’t bad just a bit spicy. It was fifteen bucks for my salad and was enough to feed multiple people or give me multiple meals. It was delicious, fresh and very filling. I understand why they are so highly rated. Go and enjoy.More

When we were on vacation we stayed at the Hilton so this place was close by. Aviva by Kameel, whatever it means, is absolutely amazing! The staff here is professional, kind, loving and will make sure that you will have something to drink! "Crab Stuffed...Avocado" was a wonderful dish.More

I was just in Atlanta for Dragon Con 2023. I’ve gone every year for 17 years. I’ve looked forward to eating at Aviva every year since he opened the downtown location and only learned of the place by going to the convention. This year was...no different as I ate there once a day for six days. If anyone is familiar with Dragon Con then you know it’s huge, over 50K people swarm downtown. It’s like the Super Bowl for the hospitality industry on that part of downtown. Some places deal with it better than others. Aviva welcomes it with open arms and gives it a big hug. While the lines could be long they usually moved quick. You don’t mind it because Kameel himself comes out to greet everyone and hug them. He and his staff hand out small bowls of lentil soup, baklava and melon to people waiting in line. Kameel habitually says, “Thank you”, “I love you” and God be with you” to everyone. It’s amazing and you can tell it truly comes from the heart. The food itself is outstanding. The humus and the chicken shawarma pita sandwich are personal favorites. It’s truly delicious and genuinely good for you. If you are in Atlanta and do not eat there you doing yourself a huge disservice.More

Came here during DragonCon, as we do every year, and the restaurant was open specially for the event. They really get into it and are very welcoming. Quick service, and the owner is very sweet and friendly, as is his staff. They were giving away...food while we were waiting in line, which made us want even more. The best lentils, baklava, and falafel I've ever had! A must-stop if you like Mediterranean food or want to try something new.More

I went here for lunch after several recommendations...and I'm glad I was here early, since there was a huge line by the time I left with my to-go lunch. The food here is fresh and unique. And, Kameel, is quite the gregarious character...but in a...positive, excellent way! When I ordered what I thought was a good combination, he looked at me and said "You haven't been here before, have you. Well, No, you don't want that....". And then proceeded to tell the staff what to put together for me. I was a little surprised (although he did it very nicely)...but, I tell you what...was Kameel right on! My lunch combination was fantastic, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I can't wait to get back.More

I'm sorry, but Aviva is a Monday-to Friday, 9 to 4 place located in a mall in a busy downtown working area. No Saturday or Sunday hours except on occasion, determined by the owner.
