Paymon's Mediterranean

I really like this place and the different types of teas you can have. Not so sure why it's called a 'cafe' as opposed to 'restaurant' because it definitely is not a 'cafe' environment. Food is pricey, atmosphere is good, decor is nice. There is a hookah room but I haven't utilized that. You can... read more

Delicious "crack" fries, great gyros, and other meats. Service was a bit slow, but nice place. I though that the ambiance was nice. It's fairly close to the Las Vegas strip.

I went in there thinking we would get good service and live up to the reviews it did not. Our appetizer took 25 minutes to arrive to an empty dining room. The waiter forgot to bring tea and the meal followed the appetizer very shortly. The wait seemed like forever for an off time. Really 4:30pm and a wait for... More

Fabulous mediterranen food! We tried the sampler platter and lentil soup- it was about $14 and had enough food for myself and four year old to split- big portions! We tried the lentil soup, hummus, tabouleh, baba ganoush, dolmas & falafel. Everything was amazing and the service was friendly and fast. Definitely worth a visit!

This place is awesome however I must've came on a bad night because the service could've been better as well as the food and hookah. For starters when we walked in most of the little sectionals were already taken but the waitress kindly made some room for me and my girlfriend to chill. Once we were seated we were recommended...

Ok--right up front, I came here looking for a way to get out of coming here for an out of town family member's visit. I'm not normally a fan of Greek or Mediterranean food, and planned to order something safe like a meatball parm panini to be safe. But--the lamb burger looked interesting. I cook a mean burger at home,... More

Great food, super nice place, nicely decorated. Also has a hookah lounge next door for some night life. The shiskababs are best quality, great rice and sides. I highly recommend Paymons.

The Salmon is delicious. My husband had the Alfredo, said it was the best he's had. Make sure to try the Athens Fries.

I stopped by at Paymon's Mediterranean Cafe to try something new on Thursday March 19th. I came with two of my friends and decided to dine outside. We were allowed to sit at any open table and were given our drink rather quickly. The menu offers a mix of Mediterranean, Indian, and Italian dishes. After looking through the menu, I... More

Right off the bat, I definitely enjoyed the location and the vibe at the restaurant. I loved the fact that the food portion was really worth my money. I got the chicken curry along with Athen fries and the pesto hummus and these dishes were really good. I liked the texture, the flavoring in the chicken curry had a certain... More
