Mediocre at best ... neither here nor there in terms of cuisine. Worse Baklava and Mezes of my life, name is misleading!!! Poor customer service on the part of management.

To enjoy the happy hour menu one may ONLY inside at the bar. This seems absurd in Covid time.

I have eaten here many times in the past.

COVID dining was 100% odd at this restaurant.

I have a list of allergies my waitress would not take the list so many anaphylactic allergies I was not 100% comfortable.

My dinner was served they had to take it back I told the person delivering the meal that delivered my I had to bring back my dinner and she took my list to the chef.

New meal was perfect.

My suggestion is if you are so afraid of taking an order along with my list of serious allergies you should not be a waitress working during Covid.

I did notice she also was extremely cautious with other tables and their dinners were also incorrect.

My meal finally came back 100% delicious.

I love this place and everything it has to offer. The prices are a bit high but worth it. I am especially proud of this place as they have been able to hang in there and that is due to the due diligence of safety measures.

I was particularly disgusted with the yoga studio teachers above Pita Palace. When you walk in there restaurant there are very explicit rules stating the need and use of masks. All people are asked to put masks on when servers approach your table, and you are reminded of this when you are seated. These “Yoga “ supposed healers for some reason completely ignored the rules and blatantly put that server and this establishment at risk. I complained as did other people. Unfortunately the server had to be polite and ask them to put them on, at which these stupid women replied,” oh, we were just talking about that”.

Cudos to this server. I and many others will support you. For anyone reading this review this is a safe place to eat with conscious workers. Can’t keep stupid, selfish people out.

I've written a review of Pita Paradise before but I wanted to review again because I'm grateful their doors are open during this nutty time and want to give them a little love. I especially like restaurants that are working to make it a natural and welcoming experience, which they did. We sat on the patio which feels very nice and secluded with all the bordering plants. We had the Caesar salad, which isn't typical because Pita puts their touch on it with cucumbers and tomatoes and it's really even better than the standard. Also had the veggie pita sandwich which is delicious. But the pièce de résistance was the Baklava ice cream cake which my husband and I basically *gently* fought over. Service was good and friendly, and when a couple of other tables filled in, you could pretend things were normal.

We eat at Pita Paradise about every month or so. We have NEVER been disappointed with the food or service. The ambiance is comfortable, whether out on the patio or inside. Our favorites are anything with the lamb (like the Lamb Salad or a Gyro) but everything is fresh and so ono. They get super fresh fish from their owner who goes out fishing and supplies his own restaurants. I highly recommend Pita Paradise!!!

Food was bland and average...I grew ip on Greek food! Our server was polite but didn’t seem like she wanted to be waiting on us! Really wanted to like this place but it was a disappointment. Nice setting but it stops there. Worst meal of our two weeks on Maui.

The dinner menu is just ok. There is not much choice if you are not into the one fish special of the day which has been sword fish. The lamb pasta was not good and the lamb Kabob was plain and uninspiring.

We usually love Pita, but are afraid that since they have started a sister restaurant about a year + ago that they would begin to ignore this one and quality would go down. Just a little, and only recently we have noticed a bit of a decline. But they were short staffed so that could have been the issue. Fish was not as plentiful as usual. They need to change up the menu a little. Same for years. We are local, so we notice this more maybe than others. Still a favorite of ours. Love the fresh fish kabobs and the Mediterranean salad, the mushroom appetizer is excellent with pita. The gyro is great too!!
