The food was good for the price but it took far too long to serve kabobs to a table of 8. They could also make the feel of the interior more comfortable by the service and not so institutional feeling.

Good change of pace given the lack of diversity and quality in this area. If in Arlington it would not stand but in sterling...it rocks!

This restaurant wins a 5-star in a heartbeat with authentic Mediterranean cuisine. We had couscous with lamb, tagine lamb, soup and Moroccan tea. Everything was first rate. Price is quite reasonable. Entrees are of good portion. The menu is varied and long. The person who runs the place is very friendly and will put you in right mood after a... More

My husband and I had dinner at Zeitoon a few nights ago and really enjoyed the food. We had a sampler platter appetizer (I think it was called a Zeitoon platter) for 2. It was large and could have been a full meal for 2 people, but it was delicious and I would definitely get it again. I had the... More

I had the chicken kebab and thought it was too much over the top with the marinated spices. The service was very friendly. I might come back.

So my wife and I had never eaten Moroccan food before, and realizing this we decided to try Zeitoon. We started with Zaalouk (Breaded Eggplant) as an appetizer which we both found rather average, and then we had Tagine Cornish Hen and Tagine Lamb. Tagine, I found out, is the reference to the colorful ceramic covers they use to slow... More

This is not a fancy dining out place; the atmosphere is very casual and it looks much like a take-out spot tucked into a strip mall, with only a few tables. But it is worth a visit for tasty Morroccan food that is hard to find in the area: tagines of chicken or lamb, bastilla (a savory-sweet chicken pastry in... More

The guy who served us was the owner and he was a nice guy with customer service but the food was so bad, we tried their Gyro. For my son I ordered a cheese pizza which was just a piece of bread and a bit of cheese (I can say as one slice of NY pizza and I paid $7... More

I made my first visit to Zeitoon last week and will definitely be back. We started the meal with baba ghanoush. It was very good as were the Tagines (I had Cornish hen, my husband had the lamb) but my favorite part was dessert. The baklava, which is homemade, was awesome. If you like middle eastern food, I would highly... More

The food was really good. They had 4 young men playing music when we were there and they were just awesome. The waitress which is the owner of the place was so nice. A bonus is that the desert is home made.
