Paymon's Mediterranean

I really like this place and the different types of teas you can have. Not so sure why it's called a 'cafe' as opposed to 'restaurant' because it definitely is not a 'cafe' environment. Food is pricey, atmosphere is good, decor is nice. There is a hookah room but I haven't utilized that. You can... read more

The atmosphere is gracious and elegant but not stuffy. And the food was wonderful. I had the falafel: warm from the fryer but not greasy, bathed in just the right amount of tahini sauce with greens and tomatoes, and a warm, soft pita surround it all. There were so many items on the list, there is bound to be something... More

My partner and I went for lunch here. The atmosphere is very weird and dark. The server wasn't friendly. The food was just ok it wasn't terrible but it wasn't good at all. The service was terrible. We order an appetizer which it came out fairly quick but the lunches took forever and the place wasn't even busy. After we... More

You cannot go wrong with Paymon's if you have a yearning of great quality Middle Eastern Food. I have never been disappointed. I suggest the mixed platter which will give you a taste of their menu and spur you on to more full main dishes. The food is a little pricey but worth every penny. Spoil yourself and someone special... More

I've been going to Paymon's since there was only one location on Maryland. I love everything about the new location - it's closer to me, it's got a better atmosphere, and the same great food! I've never had something here that I didn't like. I especially love the iced tea, the salads, the dips, and the pitas. I've been here... More

My favorite go-to place. Authentic mediterranean food selections. I love the yogurt dip, the fattoush and gyro salads, there are food choices for everyone. The Athens fries and spices are delicious! I recommend picking up some extra spices to take home as well... The restaurant is comfortable and the service is always great. Love this place!!!

I'd been here before and I don't remember it being this bad. Maybe it was an "off" night? I hope so! We were a large party of 10, and it took one of us getting out of our seat to get our waiter to come take our order. When both my and my husband's meal arrived, it was cold. Then... More

The food was really good but the portions were small and a bit expensive. Placed a take out order with ease, very nice hostess that took our order and checked me out. The Dolmas were great, spanakopita was alright, Greek salad and gyro was great.

Delicious "crack" fries, great gyros, and other meats. Service was a bit slow, but nice place. I though that the ambiance was nice. It's fairly close to the Las Vegas strip.

I went in there thinking we would get good service and live up to the reviews it did not. Our appetizer took 25 minutes to arrive to an empty dining room. The waiter forgot to bring tea and the meal followed the appetizer very shortly. The wait seemed like forever for an off time. Really 4:30pm and a wait for... More
