“Best shawarma I've had in Florida!”

Oasis Cafe Mediterranean Restaurant
Ranked #347 of 1,164 Restaurants in Sarasota
Cuisines: Lebanese
Restaurant details
Reviewed 24 June 2017

I've already been twice this week for the beef shawarma wrap! It was delicous. I also tried the appetizer sampler and especially loved the hummus. The owners are very friendly. It's a nice lunch place in Sarasota and you can call in ahead of time so that your food is ready when you arrive. The prices were very cheap and the quality of food can't be beat. I will be back very soon.

I've been searching for a good little Mediterranean restaurant and I finally found this place. Had the falafel platter (always my go to at Mediterranean places), the grape leaves, baba ganouij, hummus and the taboulli! All amazing!! The owners are extremely nice as well, can't wait to tell all my friends and family about this find.

Located in a storefront in a small strip mall on S. Tamiami Trail, the Oasis is a combination local Lebanese cafe and deli. The deli stocks a broad range of imported Lebanese and Mediterranean foods and the cafe serves flavorful, authentic and freshly prepared Mediterranean cuisine. The cafe ambiance is simple but the food taste and flavor is a complex of loving and authentic presentation. All the staples like falafel, hummus, kibbeh, tabbouli and, especially, the tzatziki are extraordinarily flavorful. Not a place for formal dining but for a fun, light luncheon or day time snack it is a wonderful find - not that easy to enter from north bound S. Tamiami. Parking, especially around the rear, is easy. They have a wine and liquor license and the imported Lebanese beer and wine truly complement the authentic food flavors.

Great family-owned restaurant with the best hummus,fresh pita,baba ganoush-
to die for-and memorable spanakopita. You can eat -in or take- out. The freshly baked
pita is the best. Great service. Casual restaurant with booths or table. Menu on the wall with specials.And don't forget to order freshly-made deserts. I can guarantee you will return again and again, or you will take food home with you. Parking in front or in back of restaurant.
