Al Kawthar is a Halal restaurant serving Middle-Eastern food from a small and cool space on 2nd Street in downtown Richmond. I had the $5 “grilled chicken salad” sub. It was a hot, chopped, seasoned chicken sandwich with grilled onions, tomato and lettuce on a sub roll. (it came with mayo, but i’d ask for ‘no mayo’ next time). The chicken was great.
The restaurant also serves a number of other chicken, beef, lamb and vegetarian dishes.
Most of the other meal plates cost $8.
I gave my experience there 12 out of 14 points.
Al Kawthar now has 2 locations. The 2nd location is on Broad St. by Lomardy.
