My husband and I went tonight for dinner. I am originally from Detroit Mi, which is known for fantastic Lebanese food. The Pita Spot exceeded my expectations! The tabouli, baba, falafel, and entrees were truly phenomenal. Will go again while on our trip. So yummy!!!

The best food I ever had. Nice service , quick and affordable. They can split dish if you think you can't finish full one. I was visiting mystic with family and we decided to go there but it's really a different experience.

This restaurant is my go-to spot when I'm staying overnight in Mystic en route to Providence, RI. For Mystic it is very affordable and the food/staff is amazing. I think the most expensive item on the menu is around $22 and that is the whole la la chicken. This is the best chicken dish I have ever eaten largely due... More

I have been to restaurants all over the world. Some opulent and some very humble. I have eaten food that was unique and some common. Some of the food I enjoyed and some I have eaten as a gesture of politeness. Most people enjoy types of food that they are familiar with. This is like a comfort food. I have... More

This is the first time that I ever dined at this establishment. The décor is very nice Inside. It is also the first time I ever ate Lebanese food and I was pleasantly surprised!

I lived in the Middle East so am wary when faced with food that claims to be authentic. No need here. The ban ganouch was properly smoky in flavor and the kibbeh absolutely outstanding. Also really enjoyed the seasoning of the shawarma. Service was prompt and friendly.

I was unsure of this restaurant even with rave reviews, but everyone in our family loved it and asked to go back a second time! We ordered over 10 dishes and shared them all family style and every single one o them was great!

We were visiting Mystic for a couple days and had to try this joint after reading all the reviews. It did not disappoint! We stayed at the Residence Inn near the aquarium and it was a five minute ride from there. Easy and convenient. We went with two youngsters- 2.5 years and 6 months. I was nervous to eat out... More
