If you're looking for great Middle Eastern food, look no further! This place is the diamond in the rough of Raleigh. It's reasonably priced for the college kids but it's still authentic, fresh, delicious, and the servers are great. Haven't seen him in a while, but that server Devin was such a little angel! He was beyond helpful.
Food May Be Good, But Misleading Pricing. Looked online and ordered 6 box lunches for a group. Price was listed as $7.99. When I called, they gave me a price total that was too high. When I inquired, they said the box lunches had been $8.99 for quite some time. They would not honor the price on their website. When I went to look it up online 10 minutes after the phone call, but before I picked up the order, they had changed the price to $9.99! This reflected a 25% increase in that ten minute span.
Awesome food. One of the very few place where you get really delicious food for a decently cheap price. I go there atleast once a week. The food is more than worth for the price I pay. I can't give any less than a 5 star rating to this place.
Filthy. Once we paid our food we looked for a table to sit down. Each table was littered with food - under the tables was clumps of old food. The floor was sticky as I walked on it. I asked to speak with the manager twice (once at the cash register and once in the dining area) and she slowly sauntered over. I explained to her the dining area was filthy - she fully agreed! (of course) 2 people did come out to wipe the tables off, but no one cleaned the clumps of food on the floor or the sticky residue. The manager returned with coupons for $3 off. What a ridiculous proposal! $3 off!
Just Excellent. Really fresh and awesome food. My first visit today... helpful staff if you are unsure about the choices or ingredients - just ask! They give samples... which is great. Fills up fast for lunch!!
GREAT FOOD BEST BAR NONE. THIS IS SIMPLY THE BEST! Their chibatas(sp?) are best I ever had... Super friendly staff ... reasonable pricing... fast service... It is a must try...
Middle Eastern home cooking. Fresh, tasty, and very easy to eat a healthy meal quickly so it's a great alternative to fast food if you're near one of the Neomonde locations. The hummus, baba ganoujh, and stuffed grape leaves are some of my favorites. The tabouli is excellent but I just happen to prefer mine with a little fresh mint, their's is all (fresh!) parsley. They also bake the only fresh pita in the triangle and sell it at a very reasonable price. The only thing I do not recommend at all is the kibbeh, it's been very dry the couple of times I've gotten it.
Great Middle Eastern Food!. This place is one of my staples. The food is delicious and their desserts are wonderful. It is more like a cafeteria-style restaurant where you walk up to the counter, order your food, pay for it, and bring it to the table yourself so if you are looking for a romantic spot or want to be waited on this is not the place. But otherwise this is definitely the place to go. I can't say much about the service though. They try to get you in and out quickly and some of the servers behind the counter are nicer than others. However, considering that you only have to deal with them for literally 1-3 minutes and the food is so good, it isn't an issue. hmm...maybe this is Raleigh's "Soup Nazzi" equivalent! I go here regularly and at prime eating times it is hard to find an open seat. I always see families there. Good vegetarian options. They have sampler plates and the prices are reasonable. I have really liked everything I tried so far but their shawarma, so I wouldn't recommend that particular dish. I am not sure what the other reviewer was talking about when they said this place is expensive. If you order their most expensive meals- a sampler of 4 dishes it is $8 or $9. If you go for a falafel ($4) or a wrap it is less than $5. I don't consider being able to eat an entire meal for $10 or less expensive.
A hidden jem!. You won't find better Mediterranean cuisine in Raleigh. It can be a little confusing when you walk in, but you usually just follow the big line in front of you. The hummus and baba ghanooj are amazing. Lots of choices, and its all a great value. Try try try!
