REVIEWS OF Middle Eastern Bakery and Deli IN Arizona

Catarina Macias

Loved this place! Had the Lebanese chicken which was seasoned to perfection. It came with Greek salad and pilaf which was also delicious! Their lemonade is amazing, with no sugar added, and their desserts are remarkable as well. As if their food wasn’t good enough, their service was even better. The owner was there to take our order and make recommendations all which were spot on. The vibe in the bakery was very chill and allowed us to sit and visit for a couple of hours. Would highly recommend this establishment to anyone looking for delicious food and even better ambiance.

Nora Baut

Danie DesJardins

I have been craving good and legit Mediterranean food for far too long. Thank you Middle Eastern Bakery and Deli for being nothing short of spectacular. Excellent prices for portions. The lamb is delicious. Grocery &deli have a nice wide variety of options to bring the awesome home.

Luke Thomas

I come here every time I visit Phoenix. Their pita bread is fresh baked daily and super soft. Orange flower lemonade is a bit sweeter than traditional lemonade but not bad at all. You can find gluten free pita here that is very soft and delicious.

Mounir Badawy

Great breads... great service

Jacob Frantz

Our favorite Middle east deli, fresh and delicious, they also are a bakery so fresh bread is guaranteed! And delicious pastries like Baklava yummy! My favorite is the vegetarian sampler, wonderful, but everything else is great too, oh did I mention they have a small middle east market here also so you can make your own or buy frozen goodies and fresh items to take home!

Stephen Weigand

Helpful friendly great food!


Service was great with many different options to choose from. I ordered the shawarma plate. The meat was dry and didn’t seem very fresh. On top of that I felt like I paid $12 for a snack portion of shawarma. I’m used to getting a shawarma plate at other places that’s maybe a couple dollars more but enough food to take home leftovers.

Natasha ThomasManson

The lemonade with honey and rose water is amazing and everyone is so kind. The have amazing gluten free breads and vegetarian food.

Rose Ryan

My first visit of what will be many visits. This deli has been recommended to me by several friends. After ordering the chicken kabob plate I can understand why. Exceptional food and service!

Charles Wilkins

Great middle eastern restaurant and grocery

America Walk

The service was absolutely amazing. Totally recommend.

Dave Schle

Great food, small grocery, many spices, gluten free Tortilla and pita. Also charming restaurant

Beth Hessel

Have not been here in 4 yrs. Waitress still speaks no English. Sharwama very expensive dry and gristly. Groceries on the shelf dusty. A place to avoid.

Lehm Law

Awesome food and service. Amazing gluten free options.

Fadi Bishara

The place is a small slice of home, the pita bread is the same taste and texture I used to get as a kid from my local bakery every morning back in Nazareth Israel, the owner and staff are amazing and very hospitable

Mike G

Joe Hernandez

Authentic and delicious. Friendly customer service.

Jennifer Quillin

You'll feel like family here. This is my happy place after a long, tough day working. I put my feet up, drink Turkish coffee and a fresh pastry, and groove to the music. Don't expect fancy, but do expect excellent food and service. Don't miss the honey orange blossom lemonade.

Stephanie Watson

Amazing food and service! Love this bakery and deli! They have the best Baklava, coffee and lemonade!

Barbara Atkinson

Beautiful but somewhat pricey pastries.

Jaime Paul Lamb

Nice people. Great food - we get the tabouleh, falafel, hummus, baba ganouj and ful medames - all excellent! The lemonade is mindblowingly good.

Anita Reale

I love this place, I've been a customer for about 15 years now. Always a great experience

David Sands

Their pita is the best, and comes in a bunch of different sizes :)

Sherwin Gishey

new hot spot. food is amazing. owner is super friendly, he remembered me from my first visit. simply the best...


The food was good but the portions were small and little bit expensive for my taste.

James Mitchell

Love this place. Excellent gyro, excellent falafel, excellent hummus, excellent owners.

Peter B

Fantastic fresh Middle Eastern breads. I drive all the way from Goodyear to buy lebneh, feta, olives, bread, and their homemade desserts. The staff and owner are a joy to interact with. ♥️

Ms G

Great restaurant with a grocery Market selection. Super friendly staff

Rosa Vargas

The best Middle Eastern food in town! I miss it so much since I moved to Tucson! Employees and owner Great you like family! Great customer service, great food!.. The best homemade pita chips!!

Shawn Anderson

Ordered the gyro plate. Should be great at a middle Eastern bakery. Nope. Looked like processed gyro bacon strips they cooked in the microwave. Seriously even a little grilling could have helped. Not good for the 10 bucks it cost. Try something that still has the rotisserie of real gyro meat. Just not here.

john paul

Nice folks and terrific food that’s easy on your pocket.

Sam Zee

Poor poor quality and tasting food. Surprised they still in business that long. Considering the area they are in, it make sense. People in that area don't differentiate between junk food and middle eastern food, so this restaurant is a perfect match.

Esther Conort

Wow! What a fantastic little place! The owners are just lovely. The food is fresh and fantastic. The indoor murals are nice and it's got a decent amount of tables for a grocery/bakery. I ordered the Combo and the Kebab platters to share with my two daughters. The dolma, kibble, kebobs, and saffron rice were all amazing! We purchased a package of fresh small pitas. Soft, fluffy, deliciousness! The honey lemonade was so refreshing. My daughter's had meet had Mediterranean food and loved it! Then, they were kind enough to help us navigate the pastry case. The girls loved every one. Then, a lovely woman who also works there showed us some of the other food items that we can pick up from the grocery and how to use them. All in all it was a wonderful first experience, and I'm sure there will be many more!

Jessica Myers

This little gem is amazing! It’s a deli/market/bakery and the food is so delicious! Definitely try the lemonade! It has won awards! The owner is a sweetheart and will definitely teach you something so don’t be afraid to try something new or ask questions. I had the combo platter with falafel, hummus, grape leaves, and a few other items it was great. Finished off with some Turkish coffee and a baklava. Try something new and take a look around! You’ll love it!

Vanessa Pohl

My favorite little Middle Eastern Bakery for lunch with coworkers. Love their Gyros, Baklava, and homemade lemonade!

Sherry Harmon

Small deli, bakery, and grocery. Food was excellent, and very authenticate. Staff very kind and friendly. Will definitely return!

Calinoa Photography

Very good authentic food.

Rosa Rodriguez

Is a nice place for Family

Judy Schaffert

The proprietor of this little grocery and restaurant is incredibly warm and welcoming. He's what distinguishes the place from any other strip mall restaurant. The food is reliably solid, like mom would make if she were Middle Eastern, Lebanese or Syrian. The baklava is heavenly. Their pita is also wonderful. Go try it.

Lauren Allen

Gluten Free. Incredible!

Mark Lewis

Great Lebonese chicken. Rice was exceptional. Always good. Fresh pitas bakery and store. Highly recommneded.

Kristen Mozaffari

Kind of a non-descript place. But the lemonade is SO GOOD. Probably the best I've ever had. We got multiples while we were there and then one to go to share with others. Worth visiting for that alone. Our food was okay. Not super memorable. But I think I might even have dreamed about that lemonade...

Steve Blimbaum

Great for lunch. Kitchen is hidden in the back. Try the falafel!

Jim Dangelo

Quality, authentic and fresh food. Mostly Lebanese style.

david grubbs

There are not enough words to describe how wonderful this place is. Friendly, wonderful food, and the best lemonade in AZ.

Diana Saab

Had everything we needed and the owner was very gracious and helpful

Monica R Marcella

The BEST homemade lemonade in town!!!! You won't want anything else after having theirs! Everything in the restaurant is amazing! Brings your taste buds alive!

Shannon Fahey

Amazing you food

Cathy Lanna

The food is fabulous, fresh and steeped in classic traditional middle eastern flavors!!

JC Clift

I love this place! It is like stepping into the "old world" style of family businesses. The food is very authentic. There are so many choices of great food and the little market has everything you need for an authentic Mediterranean meal.

Therese Phoenix

We come up from south mountain for a monthly supply of fresh flat bread! Their food is fantastic, service warm and always a really good experience. Clean and off the beaten path, just the way I like it.

Rhonda Broviak

The Owner is very friendly. He showed us around and explained some of the items to us. The food was so delicious and authentic! Portions were very generous. The Lemonade is homemade and very yummy! I also had the Arabic coffee. Which was very good. I would recommend this restaurant. It was nice to try some genuine Middle Eastern food and nice to have another choice of food besides a typical restaurant chain.

Kasey Johnson

Good little treats and naan bread

Rishi Popat DMD, DMSc.

My family and I have been coming here for the past 30 years! We have always had great service, delicious food and warm hospitality. I LOVE their homemade fresh lemonade and their Jordan almonds. You must try their scrumptious baklava. This family owned business has been in our community and will always be here despite broken windows or hate. Life Live Smiling :-)

Ryan Hubbell

This place was amazing. The chicken kebab, rice, and tabouli were the standouts.

Karen Michelle

The food is amazing! The fresh baked pita is like biting into a warm, yummy pillow. The falafel is so crisp and delicious. The baklava and halava are otherworldly. The place itself is not much to look at, don't be fooled, you won't regret going there.

Ahmad Rasul

Good service. Limited parking. Good food selection.

Nejla Franco

I love the Middle Eastern Bakery & have been going there since I was a kid. The best fresh pita bread around, hot food, pastries, & groceries. I had a falafal sandwich & lemonade, so tasty. The lemonade is the best I've ever had because of their secret ingredient. I always bring home fresh pita bread & hummus. Yum! Eat in or take out.

iman luna

Groceries are redicolusly expensive, appx 3x as much as the store down the street about 3 miles away. Food is ok, we had appetizers to try a variety of different dishes. They were friendly and the food came out fast.

Richard Sleiman

If you enjoy Lebanese food you will probably love this place. Awesome, friendly owner and great, fresh food. Going back as soon as I get to Phoenix again. Yullah!

Eileen Halladay

Yummy, yummy, did I say yummy.

I Vargas

Another favorite, I love how sweet and kind the owners are. The food is good, fresh, they have wonderful desserts, like baklava, and fresh baked pita bread!

Hugh W. Page

Excellent food in a small grocery that specializes in Middle Eastern. Pita bread was fresh and the sandwiches (falafel & kefta). Tahini,Hummus, etc. Excellent

Jack Hudock

Very good reasonably priced middle Eastern food and groceries. Nice people.

Matthew Weston

Best casual "Greek" food in the city! The owners are actually Iraqi Christians. "Chaldean Catholics". But it tastes like Greek food to this guy. Standard gyros, spanakopita, baklava, etc but really well done. Hole in the wall place. A specialty grocery with a lunch counter & some tables. Plenty of regulars are evident. Friendly service from the owners & family. Don't miss their famous lemonade!

Summer Theobald

The food is always delicious, honestly the best middle Eastern food in the city, and the lemonade made with orange blossom water and honey is amazing. The owner is friendly and always willing to offer suggestions and samples, and all of the employees are friendly and engaging. The grocery section also sells frozen/refrigerates versions of all of the menu items so you can keep some stashed for later. They also sell a wide variety of delicious desserts and pita breads. you can't go wrong here.

Tara Edwards

Love this place! Gluten free options are delicious.

Maureen Acosta

Great Food!

Susan Williams

Everything was amazing. location near to airport. Staff are very helpful. Room is quit large. Fulfill all our requests before our arrival. Raffiles club is a good place to relax. Breakfast also amazing!!

Nick Kastanes

David Fitzgerald

High quality Lebanese food at reasonable prices in a comfortable environment.

Ben Kesterson

As always, the shawarma was awesome and the lemonade is the best ever! Oh, and the baklava is to die for! If I could give this place TEN stars, that STILL wouldn't be enough! You've GOT to check this place out!

La Neese Pantuso

Wish I could give them 10 stars!! The authentic cuisine here is beyond amazing! The service is exceptional, and the lemonade to die for!

Bryan Blehm

Great food and a good spot for some Middle Eastern groceries.

Einav H

Great food, awesome service!

Holly Hall

This deli/store is gem. The staff is incredible, the food even more so. I'm so lucky and proud to call them my neighbors. You've got to try the rosewater- honey lemonade. It's amazing!

Eric Brown drums


Brandin Wilber

So good - best middle eastern food I've had in the US

Bernadette Sam

Negatu Molla

Tiny place with super great food at a fair price. Love it. Lots of parking in the back. Courteous.

Ric Fischer

We got some Halva. It was delicious.

Steve Weigand

Excellent and helpful staff. Good food and obvious pride in doing it right, thank you!

Monica Marcella

The best homemade lemonade.


I love this place. Advise to management, speed it up a little bit. I've ordered take out, shown up when they said to show up and still waited 10 minutes. That happens every time. However, it's so tasty that it's worth it

Sunny Hart

Amazing! Such sweet people running the place. And fantastic vegan / gluten free options! They have gluten free pitas, baklava, lavosh wraps, tabouli, and thr list goes on. One of my fav spots in the valley

LittleMiss Candice

You have got to try their award winning lemonade! No sugar but honey is used. Need Gluten free options? They got 'em y'all.

Johana Perez

Wonderful experience. The owners are so caring and nice to clients. The food was delicious and mr. Isam sat with my kids to teach them about the Phoenician civilization, as he used to be a teacher of history in Israel. It was priceless. We loved it and will go back some time soon!

Kat Karen

Always wonderful and owner is warm and welcoming. Get the lemonade.

Cyndi White

They have Turkish coffee here!!! This it's the best coffee I've ever tasted and is better than my Nespresso machine coffee. I bought a very large can of stuffed grape leaves, the coffee and a Turkish coffee pot, and a tray of baklava. The owner and staff were so friendly. They personally instructed me on how to make that coffee (which I had originally "discovered" at a local food festival at St George Antiochian Orthodox church a week earlier). I had a shot of the coffee with a baklava at the table there. I was so impressed by the kindness of the owner and staff. I will make the trip to this store (with a small restaurant) even though it is a bit far for me.

Hexane Smith

Eating here 10+ years. Great quality and good prices. The people who work here are always great. Many healthy options!

Kelly girl

Great food! I had the chicken kabob and it was delicious! The chicken had amazing flavor and was so moist.. so much food I took 1/2 home. The service is fantastic and the owner so nice!

Bryan James Blehm

Great food and service.

Sterling de Winter

Delicious! The staff was so friendly! I loved the atmosphere and it felt like I was family. Food was delicious and the store selection is delightful.

Juan Arias

Love this place. Best fresh Baklava

David Perez

I have been here numerous times and I always forget to take a picture of my food because I'm too excited to eat it. This is authentic as one can get with middle eastern food. It feels like I've been invited over to eat at one's house instead of an actual restaurant, due to the attention to flavor and detail. For those looking for an intro dish, I'd recommend the Chicken Kabab Plate. The chicken has a great lemon seasoning, and the rice is a great balance to it. Please order the tabbouleh as your side option over the greek salad, for a full flavor of middle eastern greens. Avoid the soda (not that theirs anything wrong with them) and opt for the lemonade, which is made with rose water. The best lemonade you will have if you appreciate flavor over just tons of sugar (but theirs a good balance of both in their lemonade). If you want dessert, the coffee is strong and unique, which should be paired with baklava. The bitterness of the coffee and the sweetness of the baklava balance each other out perfectly. The only downside to this place is that it closes at 7 pm, but its the perfect spot for lunch or an early dinner.

Linda Herrera

Very nice casual friendly healthy and delicious food

Paul Tracy

Great food, reasonable prices, gluten free options and lemonade like you've never tasted anywhere else!

Michelle Bryant

Omg! The best Lebanese food I have had since my father used to make it! The owner is very nice and I enjoyed talking with him! I can't wait to go back. Now my favorite place to get authentic Lebanese food!

James Choca

The food is great and so is the service. The place is family owned and they make you feel like family too when you're there. My favorite thing is their lemonade -- it's amazing!

Melissa Troyer

The food here is so good you will dream about it. The service is even better. I don't have enough words.. If you like middle eastern food, you're missing out if you don't try this place! Plus they have a deli stuff too!

Scott Miller

Lovely owners, great food, best lemonade in town.

Philip D

Tonight was takeout tabouli, halloumi cheese, zatar Pita, feta pita, some Turkish delight, and pickled beets and turnips. I'm waiting until I get home before eating, looking forward to an excellent dinner

Betty Rahhal

Food was great!!! The service not so much the lady never came back after we ordered to check on us, I kept having to get up to ask for things, and she forgot about one of the plates we ordered.
