“A secret treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2014 NEW

1) The term 'Baklava' reached a whole new high standard after we had it here, warm and fresh out of the oven. I'm drooling as I type this.
2) No doubt, the owner is doing exactly what he loves and that shows in every item that is served. He even went the extra mile to ensure that the food is customized as I have some food allergies
3) Such fresh & tasty Falafel, mouth watering lamb kebabs
4) Has outside tables and is a little oasis, great for a good NE weather day
5) Lots of food per order

“Definitely worth a stop!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2014

This tiny little place serves some very authentic middle eastern food. Though the main course (we ordered two different shwarmas) was good, the appetizers were EXCELLENT! The pita was other-worldly, the calamari tender and delicately sauced, the falafel the best i"ve tasted outside the ME. Only the baba ganoush left a bit to be desired (bland).
Do come here and order ALL the appetizers.

“Total Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2014

Naji's is one of the best, if not the best, values in Great Barrington. A great place to go during one of those "short weeks" as you get a ton of food for very little. The food is fantastic and super affordable and it's refreshing to go to a restaurant and actually interact with the owner. As the Berkshires become more and more of a tourist attraction, it's really nice to go to a restaurant that really appreciates the regulars.

“What a Great (Barrington) find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2014

My wife and I stopped into Naji's for lunch on a lazy Tuesday and were met by a wonderful host who turned out to be Naji himself. We had two fantastic lamb dishes but the humus and pita...oh, the humus and pita...to die for! Naji took the time to answer all our questions and educated us on how his Lebanese food is prepared. Great food, fantastic service, real friendly atmosphere. Keep an eye out for the sign, it is easy to miss and you won't want to miss this treat of a place.

“Tasty Lebanese Food and Great Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2014 via mobile

Very tasty food. Great value and service. I really enjoyed the lamb kefta sandwich. While I was waiting I tried the tabbouli salad and some baba ganoush which was also excellent. Everything was very fresh and truly authentic. I will only write reviews when I really love or hate a place. This is definitely a neat place to try. Naji, the owner, was very welcoming. I'd definitely return.
