We shared the "lebanese lunch" and it was great for two people – though we don't eat much. We added the grape leaf rolls and in the end there were some leftovers to take home. The salad had wonderful dressing and freshness and I specially liked the baba ganuj. The only thing I didn't like as much was the kibby,... More

Driving up to the front door of this unimpressive looking restaurant, you would never believe that once inside you would be greeted with the wonderful smells from the small kitchen where a most excellent cook prepares the most amazing food! The menu is sufficient and diverse; the food is cooked to perfection. It is interesting to browse the grocery section... More

Although it doesn't look like much and is no longer in the best side of town, the market and food are both very good. I like the humus dip better than any place in town. They are also the bakery for most of the pita bread that is served in any other place in town. My standard order is the... More

In business as in life, sometimes we succeed and sometimes we fail. I've never met anyone or seen any business that is perfect. So it is not a surprise that some have had a great experience dining with us and some have not. For me the question is how do we react to success and failure. Of coarse we are... More

Great food and very good prices on everything. Especially good is the taziki sauce and any of the pita sandwiches.

Did not think this deserved the rave reviews. I couldn't eat all of my gyro and took it home. There was mold on it in the morning. I wonder what I ate before. Lentil soup okay not great. Great pita chips. I would not eat there again because of the mold.

OK I like the food the service is friendly---but the tables are dirty quite often and it is also a store so if going with a date--don't. If you like the occasional Mid-Eastern fare I would recommend over Purple Onion but it is what it is--a dive Never had a bad meal HERE----NOW THE RUB ----HOOVER!!!! Sorry Worst food and... More

We visited Naji's after looking at other reviews for Greek restaurants in Birmingham. This restaurant, without a doubt, is one of the best restaurants in the Southeast. Don't go if you want ambiance. Naji's is located along a hilly road. You walk in and go to the counter. The cook and the owner are right thee. You order at the... More

Naji's has quickly become one of our favorite spots in Birmingham. The pita bread is always fresh, and the appetizers and sandwiches are always incredible. Something I have always liked about Naji's is that they aren't happy unless you're happy. If you don't like what you ordered, they will gladly replace it. I haven't had to experience that yet though... More

We really enjoyed visiting Najis! Tonight was my second visit, first time with a friend. I bragged about it so much to my husband that we went there tonight on a date. I had the Mediterranean club and he ordered the steak shawarma - loaded with tons of steak and a delicious tahini sauce. We also had the hummus appetizer.... More
