Loved all the options! The food was good. The reason it’s not 5 stars is because of service and the food. Some food was great but other items were just ok. Would come back though.

Live in Asheville but eat here every time I'm in Chapel Hill. Great, unique mid-eastern food, fantastic grains, reasonable prices, and serious size portions. Wish there was something similar in Asheville

Mediterranean Deli offers fresh food with a wide variety of choices to fit selective tastes. Lots of seating. Street parking is minimal but there are several lots within walking distance. Be sure to end with baklava and a Turkish coffee.
