The first thing you notice when you walk through the door, despite the small space and the happy bustle, is the enormous piles of food being served. Really, the food is literally heaped onto the plates, with entrees piled onto vast mounds of rice. Yes, the service was attentive and the soup/pita appetizers a nice touch, but among the four...

Fresh. Hot. Plentiful. Reasonably priced. Huge selection/variety. Free parking near-by. Attentive servers. ...We consider ourselves to be foodies and have traveled all around the world. We all agreed this is the best Mediterranean food we have EVER had.

Met a friend here for lunch and my first impression was the intimate and casual atmosphere. The wait staff was quick with soup (which was fantastic), pita bread and dip ( which was fantastic also). We reviewed the menu and talked awhile and when we paused the waiter was there to take our order - a short time later the... More

This place has some of the best Mediterranean food I have ever eaten. The chicken/lamb Shawarma is to die for, while the Falafel and Spanakopita are mouth watering. The portion sizes are HUGE, so plan to either share, or take home half your entree. They also give you complimentary lentil soup, pita bread and an amazing Garlic dip to tingle... More

Delicious food. Chilled atmosphere. Very casual. Prices very reasonable. Very small. Popular and had to wait. Very welcoming. HUGE portions. Baklava is YUMMY :) Love this place and return when in town.

Although it has been a couple of years since my last visit, I had to comment on my all-time favorite restaurant. I've always liked Middle Eastern food (hummus, falafel, shish kebab). Thankfully Mediterranean Kitchen has a large menu so I was able to try new dishes. The zahrah (deep fried cauliflower and tahini) and shish tawook were memorable. I have... More

The food was delicious with the best baklava I ever tasted. Had the beef shawama. The portions are huge. I had a doggie bag and still had 2 meals out of it. The cafe is small and cosy with great service. Try it

This rest is the one of a kind among mideterrnean restaurants in the north west. I have tried many but this one is the best. Its con is the small space but every other thing is super.

There are people, like me, who love garlic. They love this place. The salad dressing, the bread dipping sauce, and the white sauce topping most dishes are divine presentations of garlic. If you don't like garlic, stay away. The mezza plate is a fabulous selection of appetizers. If your party is large enough you should order it. Much too large... More
