Sultan Mediterranean Grill is possibly one of our best foodie discoveries in the Salcedo district of Makati. It was a purely random discovery but, as we most often know, those are almost always the most exciting ones.

    Discovering Sultan's Mediterranean Grill


    We got tired of the restaurants and fast-food chains around the Ayala and Valero areas so we decided to look around a “dark street” for a decent meal. There, we spotted Sultan Mediterranean Grill, an unassuming restaurant, neither big nor splendid. Sultan Mediterranean Grill was actually very plain and could easily be ignored. 

    It was a good thing, a stroke of luck even, that we decided to give it a try since we missed eating in our favorite kebab restaurant in Quezon City.

    Honestly, Sultan Mediterranean Grill did not quite make a good first impression. The entrance was cramped and the air-conditioning was busted when we first stepped in. But the aroma coming out of the kitchen and the sight of the food being served were heavenly.

    The food


    After the menu was handed to us, we took our time to review the food items in there. We eventually ordered Sultan’s Signature Hummus Dip, Greek Salad, Special Kebab Platter, Beef Keema, and Fruit Yogurt Shakes.

    Sultan’s Signature Hummus Dip is a great starter. This is Sultan’s house-made hummus dip, made from blended chickpeas, olive oil, tahini, lemon, and garlic. The pita bread that came with it, meanwhile, is light and chewy and went well with the thick yet smooth hummus dip. 

    We were somehow expecting the hummus to be bland but it turned out flavorful, with hints of garlic and olive oil. This was addicting to eat.

    The Greek Salad, meanwhile, is traditional salad greens, tomatoes, cucumber, black olives, and feta cheese. This is a very light and healthy plate, also perfect as a starter.

    For those who are undecided on which dish to get, Sultan Mediterranean Grill’s Special Kebab Platter is a good pick. This is a combination platter of one koobideh and one kebab of your choice served with rice and salad. 

    This Kebab Platter is perfect for diners who would want to enjoy some of the restaurant’s bestsellers without having to order too much. The koobideh will always be my favorite because it was cooked juicy and tender. The meat is packed with flavors and goes well with buttered rice, garlic sauce, and a little hot sauce. The taste is superb and very comforting.

    The Beef Keema was also good but is not as outstanding as the koobideh and the kebab. On separate occasions, we have also tried the Beef Shawarma, Sultan’s Moussaka, and Sultan’s Baked Ziti. Sultan’s Moussaka is a dish that we tried for the first time. 

    Food selection at Sultan Mediterranean Grill

    This is a traditional Greek dish made of layers of beef, cheese, and eggplant which is then baked. Think of it as lasagna but instead of pasta, it uses eggplant slices. This savory dish is heavy and can be a meal on its own. Surprisingly, Sultan Mediterranean Grill also makes good Baked Ziti.

    The perfect way to cap a meal of savory meats perhaps is a tall glass of Sultan Mediterranean Grill’s fruit shake. This is yogurt blended in with your choice of fresh mango, banana, strawberry, or mixed berry. The slightly acerbic flavor of the yogurt and the sweetness of the fruits are perfect palate cleansers.

    Our verdict


    All in all, our meals at Sultan Mediterranean Grill are always satisfying. The food is consistently good, the flavors are great, and the servings are big.

    In terms of price, Sultan Mediterranean Grill’s menu features items that range from P125 to P595. That's not bad at all considering the quality of the food. If you would like to have a few drinks with your food, Sultan Mediterranean Grill also serves alcoholic beverages.

    Sultan Mediterranean Grill is located at UG9 Valero Plaza Condominium 124 San Augustin, Makati City. For inquiries, you may call the telephone number (02) 8894 5909. Food delivery is available via Foodpanda.
