It all started with a simple idea, a personal cookbook. We used it to create a quick serve casual restaurant. Serving people meal options that’s delicious and nutritious.  

We started in 1997 located in midtown NYC under the name "House of Pita". With our falafel and fresh salad bar, the store drew locals and travelers, thereafter, we became the go to place for falafels. In 2013, we moved to Newark NJ.

We are dedicated to offering fresh and nutritious meals with large varieties. 

It isn’t just about opening a restaurant, it's about adding value to the community and making a difference.

About Our Restaurant

A vegetarian or vegan lifestyle isn't for everyone, we know that! 

But, even for meat-eaters, it is a nice change of pace to munch veggies sometimes.
