I thought I knew what a real pita sandwich was until I ate here. These pitas are the best sandwiches I think I have ever had. Very authentic to their original predecessors, these come with your choice of a variety of meats/falafel, marinated cabbage, cucumber salad, hummus, spicy sauce if desired, and more. They also serve a variety of other Mediterranean dishes, I have not been let down by one. One of my favorite appetizers is the stuffed grape leaves. The staff is friendly and the location is moderately large. A large television is frequently showing soccer games. Overall, this one of my favorite places in South FL to grab some food.Tracey K
Since my first visit to Sunrise Pita I have lived in four different cities (Miami, Atlanta, DC and NYC) and I must say that it is still the best Israeli restaurant I’ve ever been to. Let’s be honest. What’s not to love? Great food. Great ambience. Great staff. Just freakin’ wonderful! The owner is so super sweet and and the food is mouthwateringly delicious!
I highly recommend the following:
1) The shawarma. Ask to have it sautéed with peppers and onions!
2) The kebabs. If they have eggs that day, ask them to put a fried one on top of your kebabs. OMG!
3) The hummus. Holy hummus.
4) The schug. It’s so spicy and so damn flavorful.
And make sure you get lots of those fluffy pita pockets to sop up all the wonderful juices!Marcus Z
I would say it’s the best pita I’ve ever had. I like the falafel pita, as I don’t eat meat, and they load it up with a ton of flavorful ingredients. It’s simply fantastic. The guys working there are all super professional and nice…. and efficient. No complaints at all, I go back regularly.Ryan E
This was a real surprise. I thought I knew all the restaurants around serving middle eastern food, but I never imagined that a Glatt Kosher restaurant would be one of the very best. Sunrise Pita is an extremely simple place on University not far from Sunrise. The menu is limited, mostly mini-platters containing large portions of shwarma or shashlik, or similar, with large amounts of humous, eggplant etc. on the side. The style is Israeli sephardic style. It is very low key and fast-food-like.
Everything is served on plastic plates with plastic forks and knives. Everyone who works there speaks Hebrew. It was evening and a lot of cops stopped to eat (always a good sign). To my amazement, a cop came up to the register and ordered in excellent Hebrew but with a strong American accent. This is a hangout for Israelis living in Broward who pine for the real thing, and they know where to find it.Peter C
I’ve been going to this place for years and I’ve never had a bad meal. I tend to always order a falafel plate but I’ve had gyro and shwarma chicken, too, and they are all very good.The staff are the friendliest people around and make you feel very comfortable when you place your order and remind you to help yourself to the salad bar. I would bet that if you wanted to know what something tasted like, they would give you a sample to help make up your mind.
They now also have beer in the cooler so that’s a nice plus and anyone interested in television programming from Israel will enjoy having that available there, too.JL Q
This is an awesome place for vegetarians !!
The Hummus was super fresh… Falafel were crunchy and tasty. The salad bar is complimentary. Very reasonable price. Loved it all the way.
Hands down – the best! I always go out of my way to come here. Nothing compares. I’ve been to Israel and this place is the closest to that same taste. Brings me right back. The food is consistently amazing and the staff is super friendly.Erika K
Hands down the best pita place in Florida, maybe the country. I’ve been coming here for years, there are a few Israeli places here in south Florida but this is the best. Their tahina is the most flavorful around, everything is made fresh in house and has the taste of homemade in every bite.
If you’re avoiding carbs don’t let pita in the name deter you, do what I do and get a mini plate. The shawarma is amazing, as well as the pargiot (young chicken). I haven’t had anything I didn’t like from here. Enjoy!Sean P
