Restaurant is a well run operation that consistently puts out high quality food, and service is quick. Sometimes price seems high for portion size, but reasonable for the most part.

The food was good, but the service was atrocious. I tried to use a legitimate coupon from the Entertainment book and the owner refuse to accept the coupon. The owner is a scammer. He advertises in the Entertainment book, and then scams customers who try to use the coupon for buy one get one free. This place is to be... More

Len I am sorry , as we stated ,the coupon was not authorized by us. Entertainment has been notified numerous times to STOP printing its been 3 years since we advertised with them and they have not complied with our request .it is entertainment that should be held liable in this. We still have this issue with the 2017 book... More

i've heard about Munjed's for some time and finally stopped in, finding a rather large bar area and a dining room with a stage. The waitress told me they have bands on some nights. We arrived for an early lunch and there were only two other couples in the dining room and one gentleman at the bar. The waitress was... More

Taste was very good, presentation was excellent, service was excellent, overall definitely worth trying, the only detractor for me was the price, a little high for the quantity.

The waitress honored my odd request for a gyro sandwich with two grape leaves and two falafels. A piping hot gyro sandwich arrived in a red plastic basket, filled with tender pita, crisp lettuce, perfectly seasoned yogurt sauce with a hint of garlic and cucumber bits. The spiced gyro meat was sliced thinly, and in generous portions. Silver dollar-sized falafels... More

For being the first and only middle eastern restaurant I've been to so far, I have nothing to compare it with but I'd say the food is pretty decent, and plentiful. Friendly waitstaff, nice music. Only thing I'd say against it is it is always dark inside, day or night..enough to give it a depressive air, and the seats are... More

We've been going to Munjed's for years. On our last visit, we experienced very good food as always, friendly but incredibly slow service, and an appallingly filthy bathroom. Which begs the question: If they allow the bathroom -- a public space -- to look that awful, what must the kitchen look like?

Everything is made fresh daily....and it's delicious. Owner is warm and friendly and it's got a nice vibe to it.
