Kind of expensive, but good food that feels wholesome. It's a health-conscious place that emphasizes beans and hummus over meat and offers plenty of vegetable-based dishes. You can get any dish and be satisfied.

Service is great. Main dishes are very good. Decor is nice. Noise level is low. I REALLY loved their $2 Falafel. Get two of these and a Happy Hour beer and you've got a nice meal.

A popular place for families. Very informal. The staff is young and very friendly. The price is moderate and good value. I love the gambas con ahi (shrimp with garlic in a tomato sauce. My husband is a fan of the homemade lentil soup. The chicken schwarma is also delicious.

Returning here is like a comfortable familiar home - the menu always has something for everyone, there is always a table for you, the food is always clean and fresh and the Happy Hour small plates are always delicious. This is the best kind of neighborhood restaurant and will always be our go-to place to meet friends and family, no... More

When you looking lunch somewhere new and not a big box chain this is the place. Sit down dining with a unique flair.

We recently had a lunch at Pita Jungle. We were not impressed with any of the dishes nor the service. Yet another blah, blah -- there is nothing special about it -- place.

I come to New Port every year for work... And it has become a religion to go to Pita Jungle at least once if possible twice to eat food here..... The food is excellent.... Specially the jalapeño cilantro hummus... It's my favorite. The people are amazing and very welcoming.... Lot of food for vegetarians. A must visit....

The only thing wrong with this restaurant is the NAME, which sounds like fast food. It IS a casual restaurant but it is a sit down place with excellent Mediterranean appetizers, salads, cold and hot sandwiches. They also have a small number of hot entrees (salmon, chicken etc.) Two of the best items on the menu are the Mediterranean chicken... More

A spur of the moment visit turned into a pretty great experience. They have Mediterranean cuisine, with the chef's spin on it. Naturally I had a hamburger. Duh! Excellent choice though - not like a whole bunch I've had before. Great quality meat. It came with a side salad that made the burger a side dish. The salad was WONDERFUL!... More

If you can get yourself past the tough parking situation and understand that this is not a quiet place to have a romantic discussion, you are on your way with a fun, open atmosphere, yummy food, many choices and great portions. If I could change anything it would be where it is located. Looking out from the patio at the... More
