It is the mostnoutstanding eatery of this area . The food is the only reason to go there again and again . The Pitts are as fresh as the oven can produce . The platter with pitta is a very satisfying meal for one person .

During a business trip in Park Slope along Vanderbilt Ave, I came across this gem of a restaurant. I wanted something different for lunch and this little quaint looking restaurant did the trick. I ordered the chicken Shawarma platter, (grilled spiced chicken w/yogurt sauce on a bed of rice), the portion was not too small or large, just perfect for... More

Zaytoons never fails to deliver good, fresh food. From the creamy humus to the fresh-baked pita the offer delicious food at very reasonable prices. This place is one of my go-to places and I can't ever remember being disappointed. Nice people working there, too.

I love this place. I live down the street from the Vanderbilt location and have been going here and ordering take-out for years. I usually get the zataar bread and the Zaytoon's Combo Plate which has five mezas. I'm a vegetarian so I can't speak to the meat dishes but everything I've ordered, I've been happy with. And the prices... More

I went to Zaytoons because I saw that they had spinach pie on the menu and I had a craving. However when I ordered the spinach pie I was told that " we've run out of spinach". This was very frustrating as that is the reason I went in! I ordered a vege pizza and when it came out it... More

The newest of the three Zaytoons in Brooklyn, this small Mediterranean restaurant at the corner of Vanerbilt and and St. Marks looked intriguing. It seemed like the kind of place where a unrepentant carnivore (me) and a vegetarian (girl unit) could both eat happily. (It is.) The service was attentive, although one of the items on our Zaytoons’ Combo Plate... More
