Delicious Middle Eastern food

We love Middle Eastern food and are spoiled for choice in Chicago. So we were pleasantly surprised to find such great Middle Eastern food in DeKalb. We shared the Mezzo platter for starters and it was delicious. The fatoosh salad with falafel was very tasty, and so was the shwarma.

Ordered the shawarma, thinking that can never be bad. I was wrong, it looked, and tasted, like dried up leftovers. How does an outfit like this get such high ratings? Shame on them, and shame on TripAdvisor!

Staff was more than friendly and the food was really good. The price wasn't too bad either. I think I might have to try this place again next time I'm in town.

Good lunch specials. The orange blossom lemonade was very refreshing. Friendly service and tasteful decor. Not the best sauces, but we enjoyed our entrees overall. We really liked the thin and crispy pita wraps. Be careful, the bathroom door sticks. Definitely worth a visit.

so many delicious items on the menu! I often like to go for the sunday buffet to enjoy a little of everything. The hummus and Baba Ghanoush are staples, however if you want to try more than the typical fare (Gyros, Shwarma, and Falafal,all of which are excellent) Omar, the owner includes several family recipes from his home in Syria....

The hummus is freshly made and the best in DeKalb. The gyros sandwich is large with lots of meat. The fries are crisp and tasty!

Nothing but positive things to say about this restaurant. My husband and I ate here when the restaurant wasn't busy over NIU Christmas break. Service was great, food delicious and ambiance was nice too. We both had wine, an appetizer, kabobs, and dessert. Perfect meal and evening.

Authentic and wonderful. I recommend trying the Sunday buffet. Its an opportunity to try a little of something. Then finishing with a cheese halawa and a Turkish coffee.

Looking for something different? Sunday brunch at a great price. Good, authentic food, freshly made. Bonus, the kids eat for half price.

If you have been to the Middleast you will likely fall in love with cuisine. Hummus and falafel are so addicting. The Americanized gyro phenomenon is a sad imitation. Enter Mediterraneo. One look at the menu and you will immediately know this is an authentic restaurant. Dishes that sound exotic and delicious. Also the perennial favorites in most middle east... More
