Serves meat, vegan options available. Large selection of deli food as well a menu. Sells fresh pita bread. A lot of meatstuff, but the deli dishes, sold by weight, are labeled if "vegan," "vegetarian," "gluten-free," or "nut-free." The desserts, however, might contain honey or sugar syrup (indicated). Order at the counter, and food is delivered to your table. Street parking only. Open Mon-Sat 11:00am-10:00pm, Sun 11:00am-9:00pm.

First Review by faisca

So many options! - Edit

While visiting family, someone suggested I eat here and I am so happy they did! I had a cucumber and tomato salad, pasta salad, and a salad with tofu. The tofu was seasoned and cooked very well and tasted great. They warmed it up before serving it which only added to its flavorful-ness. You get a lot of food for the money. Next time I'm in town I will go out of my way to eat here again.

Hit or Miss - Edit

Med deli has lots of good vegan and vegetarian options, but the food here can be a hit or miss. Some of the food items are really great (I love the Cauliflower), and some are really bland and unsatisfying. I am a middle eastern and grew up with this type of food, and I feel like the food is pretty mediocre for this type of cousine and pales in comparison to what you'd actually get in the middle east. It's also pretty expensive for the food you get.

Pros: wide selection

Cons: mediocre middle eastern food, Expensive for what you get

My favorite Mediterranean food in the Triangle - Edit

Absolutely love this place! This deli has a very large selection of veg dishes which are clearly marked vegan. I usually get my favorite few but all of it looks good:-) & they finally have vegan desserts on the baked goods counter!

Best Mediterranean Food In Triangle - Edit

This is the best Mediterranean food in the Triangle and my favorite restaurant in Chapel Hill. There are a plethora of vegan options in there giant case of salads, sides and soups. Vegan options are specifically labeled as being vegan. They have the best hummus I've ever had. And the tabouli salad is to die for. They even make their own vegan and gluten free pita bread. In addition they have a free side item bar where you can add olives, pickles, and other sides and sauces to your food. I always leave with leftovers so I feel I'm getting value from my money.
They only have counter service and the acoustics are bad. So don't expect anything fancy or quiet, but do expect really good food.
The other thing I really like about this place is that I've been eating there for over 20 years and the food is consistently good every time I go. They don't change recipes on things that they have mastered. They are also the place to go if you want vegan catering.

Pros: Any vegan options, Great hummus, Big portions

Cons: Noisy atmosphere, Counter service

Run, Don't Walk! - Edit

The vegan food here is amazing! The deli offers such a variety of Middle Eastern and Mediterranean foods that you'll never get bored. Everything's fresh, including handmade pitas and 3 kinds of hummus. I recommend the deli sampler (1-5 item). I've never ordered off the menu, as every time I walk by the deli display on the way to the counter I see 10 things I want to try. They even have a dressings bar, with several sauces (some hotter then others), pickled veggies, and olives. Never been disappointed here. A really pleasant eating experience overall.

Great for a quick lunch, or large group dinner. There's something here for everyone. Plenty of indoor seating. However, with no partition walls the volume can sometimes get very loud inside making it difficult to order and have conversations across the table. Also, street parking can be limited at certain times, and the place gets busy during rushes.

Pros: Large deli selection, Many veg options, Beer on tap

Cons: Loud, Difficult to order, Street parking can be limited sometimes
