Like its "sister restaurant," Neomonde, Sitti never disappoints. It's higher-end than Neomonde, with beautiful decor and more exotic offerings, but still (IMO) the best Middle-Eastern food around.

First time eating at a Lebanese restaurant. The food was a little different. Excellent service - we asked for a booster seat and the waitress came back with a handful since she noticed there were several other kids within our large group. We ate a buffet style meeting as part of a rehearsal dinner party. Sitti accommodated everyone by including... More

Our surprise was how popular Sitti was on a random Thursday night in January. We had reservations; good thing, as the place was packed and "vibrant." Two groups filled the communal large table in the center, one appearing to be a sorority party. 'Twas interesting how many young people were there. Food was good, but so generously served it turns...

The location was a late lunch. The group included myself, my son, grandson, and brother-in-law. The food was excellent for the most part. The server was Ernest but needed to sharpen his skills. He was very considerate and try to make up for his inexperience.

Wonderful ambience. Hip bar scene with many creative cocktails. The food is middle eastern with ma !1 The pitas alone are to die forny choices of chicken, beef, lamb and vegetarian dishes. We just love the window seating and being able to watch the city go by. Don't miss this wonderful gem in downtown Raleigh....The fresh pitas alone are to... More

Someone please give me a lifetime supply of this bread. I like the local restaurant feel and the international accents in the decor. All the food was fresh for everyone at my table. Lots of great flavor from the traditional spices and herbs.

The title says it all. But, honestly, this is my least favorite restaurant in downtown. I would almost rather not eat lunch than go here. The food is bland and you almost will never walk out of there paying less than $10. It also made myself and a coworker sick after eating there. That corner lot could be used for... More

I hadn't been in Raleigh in some years and stopped recently to visit its spectacular natural history museum. Afterwards, our hosts took us to Sitti for lunch. Lebanese? In Raleigh? Yes, indeed. Sitti serves great food with good service and a perfect location for catching a nibble before or after visiting the sights around the NC State Capitol. I ordered... More
