Absolutely Devine

Having just returned from a two week Mediterranean vacation, I wasn't sure that I would be impressed by this restaurant, but boy was I wrong! Their food is absolutely devine. The stuffed grape leaves are to die for and the garlic whip that they serve with their entrees...oh. my. god. This... read more

We come here with friends quite often. We always end up just getting a bunch of small plates and sharing. Those along with the fresh pita make for an awesome meal! If you are coming on a nice evening, definitely ask to sit in the courtyard.

We had dinner on a friday evening prior to the theater at Sitti. What a great experience. The wine was great, and a good value. The falafel and grilled vegetables were outstanding. The pita bread was warm, and the oil sauce to dip the bread is to die for! The mixed grill melted in your mouth with flavor. Ther service... More

The atmosphere is nice. I went for lunch with 3 friends on a Saturday afternoon. Our waiter brought freshly made pitas and seasoned olive oil to the table while we perused the menu. To compliment it, we ordered the roasted red pepper hummus. Very nice but I thought $6.99 was pricey for the amount we got. I ordered the Chicken... More

This is a wonderful atmosphere and really good Lebanese food. I am partial to the Samkeh Harre or Salmon with tahini sauce - yum. These folks really know their food. Word is they are related or the same owners as another great mid-eastern restaurant within a few miles. The prices are much better at lunch and depending on the day... More

I enjoyed the Kafta Kabob skewer washed down with two pints of local beer - Goose Island and Fullsteam. People I was with enjoyed their food, too. A patient and friendly waiter did much to explain the menu and make useful recommendations. I'd happily dine here again.

We had dinner on a bustling Monday night. This place is in an old downtown location that is now open, airy and spacious. "Now" has been built upon "Then" in an inspiring way. Our appetizers were falafel and avocado hummus. Recommend both! Our entrees were both god to eat and nice to see! I like food prepared on the plate... More

We drove into Raleigh for a brief stay and happily selected Sitti for lunch. Nice atmosphere and great wait staff. My salad and husband's chicken wrap were both great choices. The freshly baked pita was wonderful!

I understand this restaurant and Neomande have the same owner, no wonder the food is of good quality and tasty. The service is good and it's best to make a reservation.

Appetizers fine. Good hummus. But why can't the chef season and salt the lamb dishes? Bland with no flavor, my stew was dry and disappointing. I have zaatar - a delicious spice popular in the Middle East - at home and should have brought it with me. Wait - I can make this dish at home!
