This is my fourth of fifth time at Dunya now and the food and service are always excellent. Reasonably priced and quality you can taste keeps me coming back over and over again.

Casual, good go-to. Love the mezze platter, although we ordered the red snapper (one of the specials for the night) which was overcooked and way to salty. I'd recommend sticking to the menu.

Great Mediterranean menu and always has great wines. I go because they have Lamb on the menu. Try the Lamb Burger.

This place has potential because the food is fresh and very good. But the service is gruff and the waitstaff a bit clueless.

Since my last visit, Dunya has become v. popular (and concomitantly noisy), but does not appear to have hired enough staff to cope.

Ran out of baklava on a Tues. evening.

Tasty, well-seasoned food but insufficient information provided for those of us who want to know more about the sources of the food we're eating.

We found the food excellent with great presentation. Service was good. Tables were too close together and very small. Noise level was very high. Loved being able to book with Open Table and loved the information given including price range.

Again, excellent. Had the shrimp shishkebob and lamb burger; started with hummus. All terrific. Very good wine selection, even by the glass. A great little place

We just had the appetizers and shared between the four of us. Lamb meatballs, shrimp (very good hot sauce) and calamari are all highly recommended. Wine list is very versatile (like the food) but inexpensive. Absolutely fantastic experience!

Great food and service! All delicious and the asparagus soup (on the day's menu) was exceptional. Friendly, upbeat place and sweet wait staff too.

Great wine list. Great mezze. Our lamb kebab, lamb burger and chicken kebabs were great. Actually, I ordered the Petaluma chicken and they brought me the chicken kebab. They comped me for the mistake. I'll be back for the Petaluma chicken...

Dunya was chosen as our spot for dinner on Valentine's Day. We were visiting the city and used Open Table to make our choice. Everything we read about this place was true. It was a bit noisy, but that didn't bother us. We loved the energy of the place. We chose a late dinner and it worked out perfectly. The other thing that was great was that it was a relaxed atmosphere (we didn't have to get ddressy for dinner.) The casual atmosphere allowed us to transition from play to dinner. Loved it.

From the friendly waiters, to the delicious food--salmon Provençal with bechamel and a grilled lamb dish with tomatoes and yogurt sauce--everything about this restaurant is great!

This was my first visit here. Highly recommended by friends. Got right to our table without a wait. Food was delicious & fresh with a variety on the menu that was suitable for any taste. Luckily for me I'll eat anything. We had the sautéed calamari , the Greek salad and the Adana kebab. We shared all of it. Portion sizes are perfect for sharing
