“Highly Recommended 4 lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

Excellent place for fresh and organic

Spanakopita with hummus and babaganoush and pita chips. Described as excellent. Fav on plate= spanakopita

Grass fed local Angus burger = cooked medium, a little pink on inside ... More done would have been preferred but still very good

Mojadara with chicken = rice with lentils and mild curry. Chicken grilled and savory. Fav on plate = chicken

All three meals came with green salad dressed with feta, tomatoes, cucumber, and olives and dressed with a tangy vinaigrette. Delish (except for the ranch dressing girl, she said very good)

We had wedding cookie and baklava and picked up Mahmoul and almond cookies and more baklava to go. Baklava divine

Procedure is order at front (girl on desk polite and helpful), claim table, pick up order (cooked quickly), then go to heaven via food

One problem: Zaytoon is hard to find. It is on the first floor of a glass/concrete office building on Elm. Free parking across the street. Enter and go to back of foyer and turn left. Serious signage street side would help--or not. People serious about organic will find it; serious foodies will find it

We could wish for a dinner service. Seriously, we would have gone back tonight--or tomorrow if we weren't leaving the city

Can't miss with fresh, non gmo and organic foods cooked well

“Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Zaytoon's is a fast, convenient lunchtime restaurant with good food and fair prices. The food is always good, but also made without hormones, etc. The staff is wonderfully friendly. And, most importantly, everything prepared there is tasty and fun to eat.

“Great Fresh Food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

I've eaten at Zaytoon at least a hundred times in the past two years. The food is super-fresh (veggies are sourced at local farmers' markets in season--when tomatoes are in season, order dishes that include them and enjoy!!), the meat is chemical-free, there are vegetarian and vegan options, and the prices are good. Get there before 1:00 p.m. if you want the daily special, because they almost always run out; it's disappointing, but also a nice reminder that they cook in small batches for the day. A Greensboro institution.

“Delicious, healthy food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

The hummus wrap here is great, and the salads are wonderful. Browse the refrigerated case for wonderful tabouli and stuffed peppers. The Falafel here is another can't-go-wrong choice: so good! This is not an easy restaurant to find; it is in a large office building in downtown Greensboro. They are only open for lunch. Everyone who works at Zaytoon is professional and kind. Love this place!

“Good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

We were staying at the Marriott and wanted something quick. They recommended Zaytoon. It was quick and easy and the food was pretty good. I would not recommend you go there if you are heading out to a special occasion because the smell of the food stays in your clothes.
