“Very tasty; a little pricey for pita”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

Look, it has a celebrity chef's name attached to it. But you gotta admit, it's damn tasty if you order right. And, while pricey, it's not that much more costly than the neighborhood schwarma place.

A word of warning: Don't sit outside unless you want instant lung disease; don't sit inside unless you want to be deafened by the excessively loud screams from the workers. Don't say you weren't warned.

“A must go.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

Forget about the crap pita sandwich you saw elsewhere. This is real art with pita. Mind blowing. The collieflower and the artichokes are phenomenal. Don't miss it. You will love the staff.

“great experience but...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

I went yesterday to this restaurant (is it a restaurant or a food booth?...).
Eyal Shani, the chef and creator of this concept - good food in "pita" - the Arab bread, is felt there. the non-nonchalant atmosphere, the tomatoes everywhere, the shouting of the waiters (why should they shout?...), it's all Eyal Shani.
The serves were tasty. Eyal and his team take out the best from a simple cauliflower and other "simple" ingredients. The price isn't that scary and again - it was an experience that is worthy - in my view - for one time...

“Overpriced but very good street food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

The Miznon is not much more than a "hole in the wall" where you can get gourmet variations on pita stuffed with anything (prawns, chicken livers, hamburger, potatoes...)
The food is tasty and a notch above your average shwarma, but priced well above it too. The seating is not very pleasant (this is one of the busiest and dirtiest junctions in Tel Aviv), but you're not meant to dwell, but rather stuff your face and go.

“Non-pretentious Indulgence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

If you are looking for a totally casual, non-expensive place for a gourmet pita, this is the place. They serve unique, well-prepared and creative things in a soft and decadent pita.
Expect long lines and noisy music, though....
