I visited the restaurant on a lark after a yoga class. Had the spicy Lebanese sausage with rice, salad and Almaza beer. The sausage made me think of Ethiopia ... it really is that spicy - but also super tasty. Friendly and efficient service, nice ambience, right on King St. An excellent choice.

Very nice and authentic Lebanese restaurant. My wife and I come here for dinner when in town for business, and we always have a welcoming experience with great food and service. We had a sampler of 5 and the lamb over rice, and both plates were delicious. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Our youngest had been wanting to try this restaurant for a while, and we were in town for an appointment so decided to drop in. We all ordered the mixed grill, which has chicken, lamb and beef basically done kabob style, but served in pieces on a platter with grilled veggies and jasmine rice. A salad comes with the meal,...

This is such a unique restaurant and after paying for very pricey food throughout the week-this restaurant was like a breath of fresh air. The food was INCREDIBLE and so reasonably priced. My husband and I loved every second we had there.

We came to Alexandria looking for a restaurant to take the kids where the food is something that we could not get back home easily. We found this Lebanese restaurant and it totally fit the bill.

The Pita House is the most delicious and overlooked restaurant in Old Town. Since my son tipped me off about this place (and he's a professional waiter and very picky), it's become my go to restaurant for family and friends. The food is uniformly delicious, from the fun options to create your own platter of three or five appetizers and... More

We had the falafel sandwiches and beef shawarma. Overall, great execution with perfect seasoning. The food was fresh and fast. Of note, this is in the Old Town part of Alexandria so parking is a real pain.

My husband and I have been here countess times for a date or with friends. We love to start with the hummus special with chicken. We've tried lots of things on the menu and you can't go wrong.
