Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were on an outing to Harrisonburg and wanted to eat lunch here - for the Falafel. It's small and in a large shopping center. We arrived at 11:30 and ordered and found a table. There is table service. We both wanted Med-type salads with...Falafel. I ordered the Ultimate. 3 Falafels; some flavorful cauliflower; string beans; lettuce; and some great sauce on a fluffy pita. My wife - the Mediterranean. Lots of lettuce with tasty dressing; some olives; cukes; Feta on a fluffy Pita; with hummas and tziki on the side. But no Falafel - as we misread the menu listing. We both would've ordered the same salads - but with a platter of 8 Falafels. In any case - the service is very welcoming. The seating area is small. This is not fast food - so be patient. AND - the price is right. But - be sure to order plenty of falafel.More

We arrived at the restaurant at 7:55pm and all chairs were put up on the table like they were closed. They had two people only sitting at a table. Based on their website it stated they closed at 9pm. We drove 4hrs and wanted to...sit and eat but it wasn’t welcoming and looked like they were only doing take out.More

If you’re looking to fancy up, sip cocktails and overpay for international cuisine, please keep looking. Admittedly this was not the atmosphere I was seeking but after the wonderful service and most flavorful food presented before me, the surroundings became much less important! My husband...and I did take notice of the “library silence” when we first walked in but we also delighted immediately when the ethnic tunes began to play! We began with a Falafel appetizer. It was very tasty but not as crispy as I expected from reading in other reviews. My Husband had the Lamb Shish Kebabs with Mediterranean sauce and I indulged in the chicken shish kebabs with tzatziki sauce and a side of pita. The portions were more than adequate and we both had take home cartons. Truth-be-told, I’m munching on my leftovers as I write this and will STILL have food for another meal!!! We eat a lot of Mediterranean food and are here on vacation from NC. This little gem of an eatery definitely gets a thumbs up!! We hope you enjoy it as much as we did.More

We stopped in for a carry-out dinner. One server out front was overwhelmed by both sit-down and carry-out business. The phone was constantly ringing with the robot saying loudly that it was a mobile caller. It appeared that there was only one other staff member...doing food prep. We got no cutlery or napkins, I didn't know to ask. The food was at best OK. Both dishes were a jumbled up pile of food in a clam plate.More

This restaurant is nestled in a complex of chain restaurants but is a local treat! The chicken kebab was so tender it fell apart with the touch of the fork. The chicken schwarma was just as delicious. The falafel was so good we asked for...a second order. Everything was made fresh to order, and the staff was friendly. Seating is limited, and the restaurant was lacking in decorations, but somehow that made it even more charming. We look forward to visiting again.More

We were traveling on 81 heading home and googled local food near the highway. Up popped Xenia’s. Tender, juicy and seasoned to perfection. You won’t want to miss this hidden gem! Maybe 5 tables, mostly takeout. The pita bread is handmade with a clay oven...and delicately crisped. Our fav is the chicken kebab on a bed of fragrant basmati. The falafel is crispy on the outside and moist inside and served with a dab of tahini. Try the baba ghanoush, it’s creamy and very addictive. Go hungry and leave satisfied.More

Who knew that a small Middle Eastern restaurant in a high-traffic Harrisonburg mall would have incredible food? If you're looking for that hidden gem, Xenia is where you need to go. Whether a filling appetizer or a delicious kebab, you cannot go wrong with this...restaurant.More

It is about the food right. The restaurant is small only a few tables but the food is excellent. The pitas and dipping sauces is a great start. All the food is worth the trip. So try it.

Small place.. Ordered Chicken kebab and Koobided kebab. Thats what is says. Normal good taste. Came with rice and salad and tadziki sauce. It is too pricey for the portions. I am not sure if I would like to go back there.

Fresh made pita with a good hummus was a hearty snack after hiking. The hummus take out portion was plentiful. The menu was varied and looks worth exploring further. The falafel order was a tad over fried. I recommend getting extra pita as the bubbly...bread with light (appropriately so) charring is really good.More

We realized that this is a takeout place when we called and the owner mentioned that he would put tables together. We opted for a takeout instead. We were grateful for the restaurant being open on 24th dec. We ordered the chicken souvlaki, it was...full of grilled chicken and vegetables. Very tasty. We ordered the baba ganoush which was very flavorful and came with pita. We also got the ultimate veggie wrap..falafel, vegetables and grilled cauliflower. All the food was nicely done and good portion size. Very reasonable priced!More

I’ve been told for a while I need to stop by. We’ve ordered twice during COVID times. The platters with two kabobs are a perfect size. Gyros are large. Dolmades (grape leaves) good as was baba ganoush. I learned during my second visit gyro meat...is prepared package, I’m ok with that as I enjoy lamb in my gyro. The family wanted just beef. The chicken had good flavor as well. Salads also large. I’ve been happy both visits. Will make this a new stop for takeout.More
