We were really disappointed in lunch the other day! $22 for lunch that was average taste and small portions! No lunch specials available. My lamb was tasty but not worth the price. Atmosphere was really cute but the waitress seemed bored. Would not go again.

If you are familiar with Mediterranean food this is your place if you have not yet discovered Mediterranean food, get here as quick as you can. The owners are on site daily and are extremely hospitable hosts and will guide you through the menu if you are not familiar. The food is fresh expertly seasoned whether you are talking about...

We have been eating here for years and the food never disappoints. In fact, this is one of our "go to" restaurants with all our of town guests. The meats are all excellently grilled and the menu has many options for varying diets. And, to boot, the family owners are delightful!

My sister lives in Denton and this is one of her favorite places to eat. They eat there at least once a week and love it. This weekend we stopped in for an early dinner and it was FANTASTIC! The zatar bread appetizer left me craving all weekend. I had the vegan sandwich and was pleased as a peach! I... More

Great Food, Kebabs with that succulent chicken , friendly people, and great deal on imported Olive oils and other imports from middle east. The food is a little pricey but well worth it.

International Foods changed their name to Green Zatar. The food is good and a nice change from the burgers, pizza and Mexican food in Denton, but it's not great, and it's expensive. They do have a very nice grocery aisle with ingredients for cooking Mediterranean food at home, and some delicious loose tea that you can't find anywhere else in... More

You have to love supporting this type of establishment - husband/wife owned and operated (no outside employees(, clean, friendly service, sticking to their core despite the hit to the bottom line (no alcohol served). As far as the food goes, this is average, at least in comparison to a Middle Eastern restaurant in a city with a vibrant restaurant scene.... More

Given Denton's relatively limited choices for food outside of Mexican, BBQ & various forms of bar/grill food we took a shot at International Food of Denton because they had a Mediterranean flavor. Truly a Mom & Pop (actually, the husband and wife were the only people working) they delivered a very nice meal. For appetizers our party of four ordered... More

Wanted something different in Denton, as there are not that many really good places there, especially if you don't like smoke or want something not as 'mainstream'. After reading reviews, we couldn't wait to try this place! We were pretty disappointed. I like different styles of food, but just not that impressed, especially for the price. Not terribly expensive, but... More

Oh my what a find! Little Mom & Pop place with the freshest middle eastern food I have ever eaten. I thought I had eaten Taboule before - but only now have I REALLY eaten Taboule! The gyro was tender and juicy. The Persian tea addictive. And the house made Baklava served warm - I woke up the next morning... More
