Have only tasted mediterranean few times before, and this was as authentic as I can recall. The service is ok, the place small, but the food makes it for all, so fresh ad tasty. Vegan friendly and organic. Recommendation: order any appetizer

Had dinner there with my family last night. Good downtown location, simple interior and good friendly service. I thought it was a bit pricey compared to other mediterranian restaurants in the area, but the food was fresh and locally sourced. The kafta lamb/beef burger with feta was quite good, as was the baba ganoush. We will be going back.

The food is really quite tasty, and the prices are fair for a downtown establishment. The service is friendly, but Good Lord, is it slow! Most recenly, I waited 40 minutes for a pita. While that was excessive, it's normal to wait 20 or more minutes for your food--not conducive to getting back from lunch on time.

Great casual dining inside and outside. Food is always fresh and tasty; can not go wrong with anything on the menu. Family owned who make sure the place is always clean and running well.

We stopped in there the other day for lunch. I ordered the Kafta burger and my husband ordered the gyro. The food was awesome! Tasted great. It did take us a while to get our order but otherwise food was great!

Disappointed. Service was incredibly slow. Food was just satisfactory. Food was overpriced for what we received. Won't be returning

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Winston-Salem! The menu offers more vegan options that any restaurant in the area.

Fresh food, great menu, friendly staff. The place is simple and quick but the food is made with heart and always tasty. I don't think there was anything on the menu that I disliked. Go for Mooney's Mediterranean dishes as they are excellent, but their burgers etc are just as good.

I have been going to this restaurant for about 3-4 years now as it is conveniently located close to my workplace. Their pitas are great and delicious. There are a lot of options for vegetarians/vegans. Staff is friendly and the owner, Mooney, is a very nice and personable.

We were visiting WS and looking for something a little different. We started with an appetizer sampler that included eggplant dip, fried cauliflower, and falafel with an ample serving of tahini. All were delicious. My husband had lamb/beef kefta (fried meatballs) served with salad, couscous and pita bread. I chose grilled chicken served with hummus and pita. There was also... More
