Sitti's has been on my bucket list for sometime now. It's in the heart of downtown Raleigh but parking wasn't an issue. When you walk in you greeted by a very friendly staff. We ended up sitting to the right of the bar with a nice view of the street. I've never had Lebanese food but it was fantastic. I... More

Sitti quickly became a favorite of my colleagues, who were here for the same business trip I was. Several of them came repeatedly (like 3+ times) during our time in Raleigh. Our group of 3 was seated at the communal table in the center, and we shared various small plates -- all wonderful.

I have been to Sitti many many times. This is one of my favorite Raleigh restaurants. The food is absolutely the freshest and best prepared. Everything from their homemade pita hot off the press to their homemade hummus. Any time you order scallops they are perfectly prepared. I also enjoy when they have it is their Seabass. Highly recommend Sitti... More

My lunch order took a while but the food was great. I had a take out order so time was important. I would definitely go again and eat in!!

Sitti's sampler is a great choice if your not sure what to get. Hummus and Baba Ganoush are wonderful! Go early. It gets pretty crowded and loud during prime eating time. Both times I've eaten here for dinner the service has been very good. Sugar cookies with ice cream is an awesome dessert!

Best Lebanese food in the area. Clean and elegant. Shrimp kabob was amazing with their spice. staff were friendly and informative with questions about the menu. We were there with business associates but will definitely plan to return for dinner date night.

First, the pancake bread that comes out first is fantastic. This was the only restaurant in downtown Raleigh that I visited more than once. I tried almost every kebab. They have a very interesting rice with noodle pieces in it that was very good. Each time we went to the restaurant we tried different appetizers / sides. My favorite was... More

We did a day trip to Raleigh and was recommended to have lunch at Sitti authentic Lebanese restaurant. I must say the staff and service was awesome. They were very friendly not to mention the food was finger licking. We had lunch and our appetizers were baba ghanouj, Entrees was Chicken kabob and Beef & Lamb Shawarma wine was served.... More

I liked the food and the downtown location. But the noise level was so high that we could not carry on a conversation and finished our dinner without ordering dessert in order to leave. I know many folks like a loud atmosphere but not all of us do.
