I love this place! Every time you come, you can change it up to something brand new. They have a huge variety of options, starting from rice or greens, to chicken or falafel, plus over a dozen toppings inbetween. Everything is fresh, and it's great to have vegetarian choices.

Plus, they have special soda and juices on tap, all of which are delicious!

In such a big city of choices, this is definitely worth a stop.

I love a chipotle style Mediterranean genre of restaurant and Mezeh didn’t disappoint. It is about a ten minute walk from the crystal city metro and it has a lively ambiance with bright colors and patterns in the tile and upholstery and we sat at a communal high top table (there are also plenty of regular tables). You can build your own bowl with choice of base and protein and then a wide variety of veggies, sauces, hummus selections, couscous, taboleh, etc. Everything was very flavorful and each bowl comes with a slice of pita. I will definitely be back for a delicious and healthy lunch or dinner!

Im a city packed with restaurants representing every corner of the earth, this little gem hits all.the right notes. Wonderful fresh and falorful food, served in a clean modern setting, presenting good portions of deliciousness at a reasonable price.
I stopped in for dinner and greatly enjoyed the wide variety of ingredients available for build-your-own meal creation. Landed on a chicken shawarma bowl with a variety of vegetables and side of falafel. Everything was hot, fresh, and perfectly seasoned. Dinner was so good I forgot it was healthy!
Would strongly recommend this Mezeh to anyone looking for a good meal - and will certainly return the next time I am in town.

Our family went to dc for Christmas and stayed in Arlington, va. First night took a stroll around Crystal City and found Mezeh. So good! Had the pilaf with spicy chicken and the couscous. Delicious! Everything was fresh and flavorful. Mezeh was our family's favorite place to eat!
