One of the best dinners I have had in Raleigh. My wife and I go here as much as possible. The food is just so genuine from the middle east. I love the lamb dishes.

I enjoy meeting friends here for lunch. They have great service and wonderful food. Something for everyone. I really enjoy the Chicken Artichoke with sun-dried tomatoes and capers.

We had a company meeting in the basement space which has a nice rough brick and timbers feel. The Lamb, Cheese Rolls, Baba Ghanouj are all incredibly delicious; lots of unique choices and lots of garlic. Great choice of bottled beers!! The service is great, and the upstairs restaurant had a great vibe.

Went to Sitti Rest. after spending the morning in the "Cedars in the Pines" Lebanese Exhibit at the NC Museum of History. What a wonderful place! Atmosphere was good, Service was excellent. And the food...oh, the food!!!! We started with the sweet potato hummus...that's right, sweet potato hummus. Best tasting stuff I ever put in my mouth! Wonderful appetizer followed... More

We had dinner here for the first time last night and really enjoyed it. The appetizers that we chose were really tasty; cheese rolls, lamb meatballs, rolled eggplant. My main course of lamb chops was also very good. Note that there are tables downstairs, where it is much quieter than the main level.

2nd time we have been there and both times it has been amazing. We sat at the bar this time and bartender was helpful and very attentive. The hot pitas are truly amazing as well as all the food. A great selection of beers and wine always add to the meal. This is the best Lebanese Food in Raleigh!

We walked past, checked out the menu, and liked what we read. The place looks like it is in a former shop front but the vibe is good. Lots of warm wood, a big bar and community table and lots of smaller tables in an expansive space. The menu is large and can satisfy all, even vegetarians. Portions are ample.... More

I have eaten at Sitti several times and have never been disappointed. One of my highlights was eating there with a man with Lebanese heritage. He is from out of town and has eaten Lebanese throughout the country. He said Sitti is exceptional. Our service has always been outstanding. I'd suggest ordering two or three appetizers as a great way... More

I am half Lebanese and I grew up eating this type food. It is hard to find a decent resturant that serves true Mediterranean food. This was the closest to my grandmother's (Sitti's), cooking that I have ever had. This is also the first resturant that I have ever been able to order kibbee nayee (raw kibbee). I recommend you...

Prompt seating, personalized service and amenable menu. Chef offered some authentic options which were flavorful. However the eggplant dishes were not so good -- the mandolin slices of eggplant were grilled, then wrapped around the ground beef & lamb but were undercooked. When I complained, the restaurant removed the $ from my bill. Worth a try.
