I have eaten lunch at Naji's and I'm sure the owner is very nice, but this place does not warrant the rave reviews on Trip Advisor. Eaters beware! If you are looking for good food in Great Barrington, consider other places first: Church Street Cafe, and their adjoining pub-cafe, Aegean Breeze for Greek food, or for less money, Eno, owned by the same people, Baba Louie's for drop dead good pizza, CafeAdam for upscale food, etc. My mezze here were OK, but the food was nothing to rave about for Mideastern fare. I wish them well, but think some correction is in order.

Naji's is absolutely amazing. The food was spectacular and the menu offers unique options, while also having options for young picky eaters. The staff was extremly nice and the owner visited our table multiple times during the meal. Naji's is a perfect choice for any group and the outside dining area is perfect for warm summer nights. Affordable prices and an overall great experience. Highly recommended!

Having a second home in the Berkshires, we are always interested in local eateries. Using TripAdvisor, we saw the great reviews for Naji's. The service and food were excellent. We were surprised that Naji kept coming out of the kitchen to bring servings. The restaurant was full and yet he found the time to ask a few questions of the patrons (including us) and making sure we were comfortable. The food was great. The price was right.

Naji is a gracious host and cook. We had shwarma (one chicken and one beef) and it was luscious. Naji will encourage you to try the garlic sauce, and it is so good! The olives and pita was a great start; the pita was warm and fresh and the ripe olives aren't your standard canned olives. They were good.

Good food with sincere, heartfelt service, fine dinner experience. Single staff member served us in casual setting; she was delightful, wholesome personality and supportted by (owner) chef Naji. Both attended to four tables of about nine guests; there are only about seven tables inside, weather permitting outside patio/deck available. Lebanese origin menu offering great tabouli, specials on chalkboard, and a personal invitation from chef to see kitchen and an offer to prepare custom meal from on-hand roasted pork-loin and chickens. Outstanding flavored roasted vegtables. Very good souvlaki (shish kebab) and appetizers. Recommended.
