My wife and I currently dine at the Pita House about once a month. It is our favorite Lebanese restaurant in greater D.C. and one of our favorites overall in Old Town.
The restaurant is located along a busy stretch of King Street between Washington and Columbus Streets. The dining room is long and somewhat narrow. Decor and furnishings are spartan, but well-positioned lighting and light colors give the restaurant an inviting and pleasant ambiance.
The food is consistently well-prepared and delicious. Favorites include hummus, chicken shawarama salad, chicken shawarama sandwich, fatteh bel djaj, and shish ta wouk. Notable accompaniments include fresh pita bread, nicely-seasoned salads, and a tasty yogurt sauce. Portions are generous. Prices are reasonable -- especially compared with the hyper-inflated menus at numerous other Old Town eateries.
Staff is generally pleasant, prompt, and courteous. Sometimes service can slow noticeably if the restaurant is crowded. Couples, families, and smaller groups can be accommodated simultaneously and comfortably.
Pita House is a very good option to consider for lunch or dinner -- whether one is a resident or visitor.
