The menu for the most part is Mediterranean/Middle Eastern, heavy on the hummas, tabouli, tzatziki and obviously, pita bread. The Mediterranean Plate was nice starter but most of it was more of what I would cause toppings than actual food items. The gyros was bland, it lacked the flavor of the gyros' in Greek restaurants, and looked like it came out of a pre-sliced package than sliced off the spit. The chicken tiki marsala was tasty, but the brown rice it came with was not fully cooked.

The service was friendly but slow even on an afternoon with more staff than customers. The setting, especially outside, is pleasant.

Overall, not a bad place, just not a great one.

Convenient to the AMC theater, this was a treat. Had great wrap and nachos . . . the servings were huge. Great quality -- fast and gracious staff added to the experience!

Normally love Pita Jungle but last few visits were disappointing, especially last Saturday night. Appetizer - Mediterranean plate was good, but took 30 minutes to arrive - no explanation. The restaurant was half empty as well. My husband and I both took a chance and ordered the specials - WRONG, they were just plain awful. Trout entree came covered in greens, could barely find it and when you did, was a burnt piece of dried out tasteless fish. Tomato salad was literally a mount of greens, looked like they opened a bag of lettuce and poured it on the plate with slimy thinly sliced tomatoes on the bottom of it all. Waitress, while friendly & efficient (probably not her fault food took so longI) took our plates and made no comment about how they were barely eaten. Admittedly, my husband and I didn't complain, just decided not to come back. I thought about it the next day and wrote an e-mail to their customer service website but have not heard anything back. Another sign of indifference to me...

Great variety of healthy food. Salads, sandwiches, and Lavosh Pizzas are all terrific.
It was so crowded and popular that we had to wait awhile for a table, but it was worth the wait.
Every thing was very fresh and had great taste. Also had very good options for kids meals.
