“amba sauce”

Reviewed 19 July 2017

We used to make the long trek to the mother ship on Ogden Avenue in Naperville....so you can imagine how thrilled we were when Naf Naf began to expand to other (and closer) Chicagoland locations.

The newest addition to the menu is their amazing amba sauce. Back in the day I used to carefully hand-carry jars of amba on the plane trip back from Israel.....never realizing that it was available in my local Indian grocery store. Embarrassingly, it took me a long time to figure out that I could make it myself at home. And I do.

BUT.....the smooth and tangy Naf Naf amba is in a class by itself. And when I combine it with equal amounts of the Naf Naf garlic sauce......amazing!!!!!!

Stop by after a movie at the nearby Regal or down-the-road AMC...or after shopping at one of the local malls. This Naf Naf is very conveniently located.

I ordered the Chicken Shawarma in a salad bowl, which I think is the best value because it also comes with a pita. I Naf'd It Up which added a side dish (thin cut fried potatoes) and a soft drink. When I was asked about toppings, I included hummus, forgetting (or not knowing) that hummus is an expensive up-charge item. Like last time, I took the pita home and will use it for tomorrow's lunch. The meal was filling and very tasty. Obviously I like the place enough to come back.

After a movie, we stopped in for lunch. One salad bowl with Chicken Shawarma and one Veggie Feast. I was pleased that both came with a pita on the side. I Naf-ed it Up! adding a drink and Naf Fries, which were 1/2 slices of potatoes (greasy and not evenly cooked). With the no-cost additions of mixed chopped veggies, red slaw, etc., there was plenty to eat. My pita went home for tomorrow's breakfast carbo. Very friendly folks, although my Naf Fries sat on the counter while the guy who was supposed to bring them to my table chatted with someone. At that moment, I felt ignored. And, my fries were getting cold.

Food is good but I think portions are too little. It would help if they be more generous, I don't like to leave the restaurant hungry.

This place is clean. The quality is good. The pita is perfect. I do not like the texture of the falafel, but most people love it. I like it crunchier on the outside. My kids and friends love this place. I would go back and try something else. The staff is pleasant and cheerful.
