THE NEOMONDE MEDITERRANEAN STORY

When the Saleh family immigrated to the United States in the 1970s to escape civil war and to pursue educational opportunities, they brought with them their passion for bread and, most importantly, their mother’s secret recipes. With help from an uncle, a converted pizza oven, and rented space in a Raleigh strip mall, four brothers – and their mother, Cecilia – opened Neomonde Baking Company in 1977. They decided to honor their new country by naming the business Neomonde, or “New World.” Their goal was to make wonderful, handmade bread just like their mother’s.

Starting with just a few types of bread, Neomonde began to gain discerning wholesale customers like The Irregardless Cafe and Harmony Farms. As the Raleigh area grew, so did Neomonde’s customer list and product offerings. In the early 1980s, they moved from the small storefront space to their own building on Beryl Road.

In 1989, the Saleh brothers expanded Neomonde in another positive direction by opening the restaurant portion of the business. All their menu items were prepared each day by hand from family recipes using only authentic ingredients, most of it made by Cecilia herself. At first, their food was only available for take-out, but eventually the brothers added a dining area and patio seating to keep up with their ever-expanding popularity of loyal, healthy-minded customers. Regulars began to ask where they could shop for their own healthy ingredients to use at home. To answer this ever-growing demand from their restaurant friends, Neomonde launched a small Mediterranean grocery where customers could purchase all the ingredients and spices to prepare healthy dishes in their own kitchens.

There is something to be said of the smiles you get from the friendly team here, that I have grown to consider more like family than my neighborhood restaurant staff. You will be happy if you visited once...you will be happier each time you came. This is a weekly stop for my family and I, and I love the outdoor sitting area where my daughter colors and I can enjoy the tea and healthy snacks. There is a reason they have enjoyed success, and I recommend this location as the experience will be a warm and pleasant one. Enjoy...

The food was delicious. Had the lamb kabob, fall best salad and tabouli. Lamb was moist and the salads were very flavorful and fresh. Will be coming back next time I'm in the area.

Broad selection of Mediterranean dishes. A favorite is ordering the three sides sampler. Pricing is reasonable and service is quick and friendly. The dining room offers spaces for large groups and quiet seating. Usually during lunch, the place is very crowded.

Awesome food, great dessert. The cheesecake is incredible and the have a great selection of other desserts to try. I usually get the kabobs which are already cooked just right and are very flavorful. You can't go wrong eating here

I really like the selection at Neomonde. To me, the food tastes more authentic than some of the other Mediterranean chain restaurants in the area. We’ve ordered this for take out when out-of-town family were staying with us and there was something for everyone in our group. That saying a lot considering our family includes a diabetic, someone with lactose intolerance, and some run-of-the-mill plain-ole picky eaters!

First time ordering for take out for me and my husband, and it was just delicious! We both had the kebabs plate, which includes any 2 sides, what a great deal 🙂 both my husband and I would’ve given this place a 5 stars though if the kebabs of steak and chicken weren’t so dry. But I love the healthy options so thank you for being 3 min from us!

Ducked in for a quick bite at lunch with a coworker. Loved it so much, I came back again a couple days later to enjoy a more relaxed experience. Both times the service was friendly and fast. The food was... well... what brought me back- in a word: great!

The food is great! Going at lunch during the week can be chaotic. One lady in our party for her food 15 minutes later than the rest of us. The taste of the food made up for it though.

Loved it. Great food. Friendly service. Normally I give 4 star for counter service, but the taste made up for ordering at a counter. I highly recommend this place. First time eating this type of food and I loved it.

I enjoyed the flatbread pizza style vegetarian which was delicious! The portion for lunch was satisfactory if a bit petite for my appetite and preference. I also tried the warm tomato and green bean salad, like stewed tomato with green beans. Truly great! overall quality was excellent. Prices are slightly above average for lunch. The quality of the food justifies slightly higher prices yet the portion sizes could be more generous.

Excellent Mediterranean food here. I had a great lunch plate of 4 vegan sides (I created my own plate). Everything was delicious but my favorites were the cilantro jalapeno hummus and Tabouli. I will go back soon.

I tried here several times on weekdays with colleagues. We plan to go bit early for lunch as its crowded. It’s perfect for individual orders and lunch. Good service and healthy food. First time When ordered 2 half Pita packets with chicken, I thought may not be enough but they are bit heavy. Reasonable prices.

Very nice kebab place with a lot of fresh sides options. One of my favorites is cilantro jalapeño hummus. A very good assortment of desserts. They also offer some mediterranean products. They have a sitting outside.

Delicious and surprisingly quick moving service line--they have all the food on hand and plate it up on the spot. Never disappointed. The Veggie lasagna with chicken salad and grape leaves is a personal favorite. Baklava is on point.

Been a regular at this location and the one in Raleigh. Good food but feels like this location the food quality is slightly different. My last visit the order was incorrect and then had to wait an additional 20 minutes to get that fixed after 2 reminders.

Great place to eat to hang out with friends or just a quick bite. I got the kale salad with lamb kabob. I felt my particular meal was a little overpriced for what I got (a medium bowl of dressed kale with walnuts, golden raisins, and a lamb meat kabob for 10 bucks) albeit it was delicious. The others in my group had pita shawarmas which seemed like a good price for the size.

First, plentiful parking. Second, you can get in/out as quickly or slowly as you like. If you know what you like, the place is efficient. If you are there for the first time or new to Mediterranean, you are up for a treat. Staff is friendly, informed, and informative. They will take time to explain, introduce you to alternatives, or suggest what goes well together. It shows that the staff is well taken care of, because the place is well taken care of, clean, and inviting. You should definitely give Neomonde a try. (Warning, you will get hooked).

This is the TO GO place for delicious Mediterranean food. The portion sizes are generous and the pricing is reasonable. They have free pita bread with food purchase which is very soft and delicious. Absolutely worth a visit, nay, multiple visits.

Delicious!!! Made fresh. Plenty of variety. Tzatziki is fab. Get a platter to try out different things. Delicious Baklava. Need I say more? Lots of “grocery” items to purchase here as well, like rices, oils, and sweet treats. Covered patio.

Always enjoy lunch at Neomonde. Gave four stars because the cashier knew the coffee was cold but didn't do anything about it.

The food was good all around. We were a group of 8 and I tasted all the dishes. Everyone was good. My only wish is that the restaurant served lamb gyro, it serves only beef & lamb mix gyro.

The staff are always very friendly, prices are great especially for the portions and quality of food. You always have a lot to choose from in entrees, desserts, sides, and groceries. Monday I went for takeout for dinner, and this was my ump-teenth time visiting. I got the take 4 and those four items Gabe me two meals. And I'm super excited they have vegan baklava, this last visit was my first time seeing that. Thank you for doing that! Don't change anything, keep doing what you're doing. Everything you make is well seasoned, good knife cuts, cooked properly, and well balanced and flavorful. I eat a plant based diet and I love that neomonde is just around the corner from my house so I can get a healthy meal that will fill me up right for a great price.
