Pita pit is a great alternative to subway. The ingredients are fresh even with a few health options. The staff are really friendly and helpful. Worth a try.

This place is basically a Chipotle but with pita. Great options, good service, tasty and affordable.

A bit like subway, but with a slight twist. Its tasty and fills a gap if you are hungry but its nothing out of the ordinary. Staff were friendly and helpful, especially with the older gentleman behind me, but things got a little slow when a number of people arrived all at once. Not cheap for what you get either.

This little downtown restaurant makes smoothies and pita pocket sandwiches-toasted or untoasted. You can choose which meat and vegetables go inside, and service is fast. Vegetarian options are available. The only downside on our visit was that feijoa berries weren't entirely blended in a smoothie.

It was my first Pita Pit experience, and it far exceeded my expectations. There was a great variety of fillings, the premises were spotlessly clean, and the service was top-notch. Healthier than Subway, being a pita roll rather than a bread roll. I would definitely go there again.

My husband and I had a takeaway lunch from here. The two staff were very friendly, one of them laughing and joking with us. They were happy to do extra when my husband asked for his onions and mushrooms to be cooked on the grill with his chicken and bacon. We both had chicken caesar pitas, and thought after ordering...

It was a bit like a subway in a pita. The ingredients just tasted cheap and mass produced. The staff were friendly but not somewhere I would go again.

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and the taste. I ordered the Mexican pita. Very tasty. I would have to say I thought it was expensive though, although we did order drinks and their chips as well as a Pita each. So maybe next time just a Pita would keep the cost down. We sat at...

Great selection of fillings to have with my favourite...the vegetarian falafel. All fresh and accompanied with the sauces of your choice.
