“Best full table service restaurant in town”

Aria Mediterranean Cuisine
Ranked #10 of 19 Restaurants in Swarthmore
Restaurant details
Reviewed June 27, 2016 via mobile

Having tried all of Swarthmore's full table service restaurants multiple times, I believe Aria's food is the best. My favorite dish is the chicken kebab platter, which includes a selection of their delicious salads. The service is very friendly, thoughtful, and prompt, both in the dining room and for take out. I think they could do even better by improving the ambiance of the seating area, perhaps with candles and more wall decorations and music.

Aria offers an array of Middle Eastern dishes. From the basic hummus and baba ganoosh ( which ROCK) to tandoori chicken and kabobs. The service is fast and friendly. Prices are good too.
I think this restaurant loses by offering too many choices. The tandoori chicken I had for dinner was obviously warmed up, had an extremely dry, rubbery texture and no flavor. The rice was flavorless also. My boyfriend had a gyro and said it was pretty good.
For basic noshes like hummus, baba ganoosh, gyros and salads ( tabouli was excellent) this place excels but their more complicated offerings are warmed up leftover tasting.

Great food, can get backed up when busy. Azim is very helpful. I mostly get take out nowadays, the dining room service can be slow

Four of us found this nice little place while in the Swarthmore area. It was a Monday evening and not very crowded. We would highly recommend it for fresh, delicious Mediterranean dishes. Modestly priced adds to its desirability.

Fabulous food in the sit-down dining room or at the take-out case. Azim (the owner) is friendly, gives samples, is very enthusiastic about the food. Try the roasted corn salad, minty cucumber salad, the rice pudding and the fabulous gyros and souvlaki.
