Paul Krasinic


AKRON - For lovers of olives, honey, dates, kebab, falafel, Middle Eastern restaurants are the way to go. In Akron, many places offer Middle Eastern dining, and we have the best of them all listed below.

1. Mid-East Cafe & Restaurant

306 E Exchange St Akron, OH 44304

“This place is awesome!! The decor inside is very fun and inviting and the owner is super friendly and helpful! Not expensive at all and the food was delicious!! I got the New York city's finest halal chicken over rice with white sauce and it was AMAZING!!! definitely a place to check out if you're looking for dinner tonight!! :)” - Natalie B. on Yelp

2. Sanabel Middle East Bakery

308 E South St Akron, OH 44311

“This little place is a gem! Friendly little mom and pop place with great food and reasonable prices. Sort of a bakery, grocery and restaurant all in one!

It is a little off the beaten path. I had the Falafel Sandwich and my husband had chicken shawarma. We shared the humoos and fresh pita everything was delicious! I highly recommend it if you like Middle Eastern food.” - Louann M. on Yelp

3. Aladdin’s Eatery

782 W Market St Akron, OH 44303

“Oh my. I love Aladdin's. The cauliflower appetizer is simply wonderful. (Get the hot sauce on the side. Give it a little shake before drizzling it over. It's terrific!)

The salads are excellent (and huge) and the wraps are all tasty as well. Chicken schwarma is perfect, and the garlic sauce divine. Great hummus, and love the creative little pita "pizzas." (Best enjoyed as a dine-in experience because with takeout, the toppings make the whole thing soggy. Still delicious but it doesn't allow for the crispy "crust" element.)” - Julie N. on Yelp

And there you have it, a small list of Middle Eastern restaurants you can visit in Akron, complete with reviews. However, we understand that reviews are not enough, you just have to visit the places and have a taste of their food to enjoy the deliciousness. Thus, be sure to put one (or more) of the restaurants on your to-visit list.
