Zaytun was just voted one of the best Middle Eastern restaurants in Louisville according to Leo magazine, and I would have to agree after the couple visits I’ve had there in the past year! Check them out on Facebook or see their menu here.
I have always ordered the classic gyro and Greek salad- it is a great deal and loaded with fresh ingredients. The hummus trio is great to share; you can get the Egyptian, Phoneician, and Tunisian (two spicier options and one for wimpy people like me who can’t handle much kick- but all have great flavor). If you happen to visit Zaytun and they mention fried chicken salad balls as a special- get them! I was lucky to try them once and they’ve never made them again (hint hint, Zaytun, I love them and want more!). Next time I plan to check out the $8 bottle of wine after 8 pm deal. And with my sweet tooth, I’m surprised I haven’t tried their baklava yet.
Service has always been great and the waiters are friendly. The restaurant has a bigger space and better ambiance now that they have remodeled. It’s the perfect location for a date, a group of friends to get together for dinner, or even grab takeout. Zaytun can be dressed up or dressed down which I appreciate, as well. Be sure to use your Spot On card if you have one, too!
