Tiny take out place with a few outdoor tables. Have been enjoying the falafels and other middle eastern foods here for many, many years. Highly recommend!

This tiny take-out place offers the best Falafel pita and entrees around town. There are other choices, but at this point I am sticking with the falafel. The cheese steak is also worth trying. There are some outside tables, but the place is basically for take-out.

The best, most luscious gyros anywhere and the Philadelphia cheese steak rates as the best in NJ. All the salads are fresh and the falafel is like mother makes. Best value in town. It i our favorite takeout in Montclair.

Went there with my wife and 2 of my kids (older). for the 4 of us we spent $64 which I thought was a bit high. The owner was not rude but he was not friendly either. Still, if you are looking for good authentic Med. food, this is a great place to get it.

This tiny unassuming takeout restaurants is one of the great hidden treasures in Montclair. It offers two or three tables outdoors and is usually busy morning, noon and night.

Amazing, since I can not remember! Everything on menu worth a try. Bring cash, only seating in nice weather.

Its a hole in the wall with no decorum or real feel for the customer. But in spite of the ham-handed manner of dealing with the customer its still a eating joy. I've gone many times and never been disappointed by the results, even if the workers are a bit disengaged from civility. They sure know how to serve up... More

Everything I have tried at this place is amazing - everything "beyond the pita." Falafels, hummus, tabbouleh, it's all great - but do yourself a favor and get a platter instead of a sandwich.

My favorite is the Swarma and through the years the good taste and quality is consistent, It is a small take-out place that we look forward to ordering.

We had lunch for a few people in our office. Three people ordered teh lentil soup and they all just raved about it. We have frequented Beyond the Pita for a while but recently moved further from the location. It was nice to be back for lunch pick up.
