zaytoons is my go-to favorite place in the neighborhood for a consistent and delicious quick dinner, and i've never had a bad experience here. i love the hummus and babaghanouj. the lamb pitza is spicy and satisfying without being overly heavy. the servings are pretty giant.. but there are a lot of healthy options if you don't overdo it on the pita (which is difficult because it's hard to resist when it's hot). prices are totally reasonable and it's byob!

  • No, I would not go back!

My boyfriend and I went in this restaurant to get a quick bite and ended up runnning for our lives. Apparently there was a spat between an employee and manager that started an all out brawl that spilled into the dining area. At one point the manager got a hot plate out of the oven with a pair of tongs and threw it at the employee. I was terrified that I was going to get burned by flying objects from the oven. I have never ran so fast in my life to get the hell out of a violent situation! I would never go back or allow any of my friends to dine there.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
