The first European explorers set sail with hopes of finding new, exotic spices to placate the palates of epicurious monarchs, but all they found were heaps of inedible gold. Pick up where they left off by broadening your mouth's horizons with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $14 worth of Middle Eastern fare at either of Naji's Pita Gourmet's restaurants in Homewood and Hoover.

The chefs at Naji's Pita Gourmet handcraft culinary artistry, stocking their menu with authentic Middle Eastern fare. Start the ambrosial affair by appetizing on the cucumber and yogurt tzatziki dip served with freshly baked pita bread ($3.99) or by conducting a commencement ceremony in the café's lobby. Patrons can wrap their appendage enders around one of the specialty sandwiches such as the chicken pita crisp with slow-roasted chicken and garlic sauce ($5.99) or the crunchy falafel pita with a mélange of vegetables ($5.29). Guests can also chow down on traditional dishes including the steak and lamb shawarma ($9.99), which quiets bellowing stomachs with seasoned meat instead of accurately thrown shoes.

Diners tickle their palates indoors at the eatery's sleek tabletops and padded booths, or bask in the open air of their patio seating (available at the Hoover location). Play matchmaker by pairing a delectable dish with one of the sacchariferous desserts, such as baklava ($1.99) and halva supreme ($2.99), or by whittling matches out of the table legs.

Naji's Pita Gourmet

Naji’s Pita Gourmet stocks and cooks Middle Eastern foods of all kinds in their combination bakery, grocery store, and restaurant. The bakery is populated by warm and soft preservative-free pita bread, which bakers ship all across the country or turn into crunchy pita chips. In the restaurant, that same pita cradles tender slices of shawarma and gyro meat, dives into plates of hummus, and wraps up crunchy falafel. Patrons can try to mimic Naji’s fare at home after a stop at the grocery store to pick up olives, grape leaves, spice bends, and cardboard cut-outs of the cooks.

"Worth the Drive"
The food was good. The restaurant was clean. The staff was friendly and attentive. Tucked out of the way, but worth it to get something different.

"Looking for the best Lebanese food in Bham?"
Look no further. First, Naji supplies most local Mediterranean restaurants with their ingredients. Next, he has a Pita factory onsite and if you ask, they just might give you a tour. Finally, the food is amazing. Don't know what to try? Get a dolmas appetizer with a Chicken Pita Crisp... Read More

"Love it!"
I love the food at this restaurant. We usually do carry-out on the way from work and it's just as great when we get it home. The salad in a fried pita bowl is wonderful. It has mixed greens with bell pepper and mushrooms. I squeeze the orange on top with the greek dressing. Wonderful! We l... Read More
