Small place. Very attractive to the eye and pleasing smells of food. Display on counter is great to see and very inviting. Staff pleasant and helpful. The food was excellent with a Palestinian flare to all the items served on the menu. Everything was very...tasty and worth the experience. The rest is a great value for money. I honestly encourage anyone who likes Arabic food to try it out. Won’t regret it. I promise you.More

Went here with family based on a recommendation and had a really good meal which we all thoroughly enjoyed. The staff were also welcoming and helpful. They don’t serve wine but you can’t take your own - for which you pay a small corkage. Highly...recommended.More

Strolling in this charming neighborhood, I found this little gem of a restaurant. Not that many tables but a very attentive staff. It seems they have a very brisk take out business. I started with a delicious lentil soup obviously home made and one of...the best I ever had. My entree’ was an interesting combination of eggs, spicy lamb sausage,potatoes, peppers and onions . It was very good. I would enjoy coming back for dinner.More

We sat outside on the deck, it felt like sitting in a great backyard. The staff was very friendly and the food was Greece mixed with Middle East. Wine was very reasonable and quite good. If your looking for a quite,fun different feel place, this...is it.More

Small restaurant specializing in Middle Eastern food. Decor is simple, non pretentious. Service was good. Pita bread flows generously. Serving portions are large. The Hummus was excellent. Grape leaves very good and Stuffed cabbage great. You can even bring your own beer or wine as...compared to buying off the menu at $5.00 a beer. We enjoyed our experience here and food was great, would repeat.More

This is my 3rd visit to this location on my many trips to Brooklyn & Manhattan. Love the setting with the colored Moroccan lamps hanging from the ceilings. Even the bathroom is beautifully decorated (which says a lot!). Love the varied menu. We started with...the Zaytoons Combo plate which is a choice of any five meza/salads. We chose the Moujadarra, Labneh, Grape leaves, Hummus, and Turkish salad), my dining companion had the Merguez sandwich and I had the Shish Kabob sandwich. Always a treat.More

I used to study in NYC & around my last semester of college, I rented an apartment almost right next to this place. I felt in love, lol. I like everything on their menu but Iet me tell you, Zaytoons lentil soup w/ the pita...bread... DELICIOUS! I'm pretty much addicted to it. It's one of the 1st places I go now, every time I visit NYC. Worth it, every time.More
