Some of the best food you'll get in Durham. Fresh every time, never a compliant in mind. Flavorful meals without being overpowering. The whole team and store owner are amazingly kind and give great service. Very comforting vibe. A perfect date spot to get a Bull City bite at a great price.

I hate we don't live in Durham. I would eat at this place about everyday if I could. This place was AWESOME. Best tasting, food was fresh, and service was great. Next time we're in Durham, we will definitely be stopping by. Thank you for such an awesome experience.

The gyro was very delicious as well as the fries! I was confused because they have a "No Ketchup Served" sign detailing why they don't serve ketchup and then I was surprised to have it served with my food? Overall, the food was good and the service was friendly.

I have tried falafel wrap at several places but nothing compares to International Delights. Food is always good and leave satisfied every time. It is a limited service - order at counter and they bring the food to you. Oh yeah, NO KETCHUP !!!

Philly steak was delicious!!! Fries were nice and crunchy but could have used some more seasoning.

Mediterranean food that is healthy, fresh and tastey. Eat in or take out. International Delights is practically a staple in my diet.

The food is freshly prepared for you. The owner was very pleasant and suggested other items I might like to try.

The cheesesteak (with ID's normal toppings) is the best cheesesteak I've ever had. Emad (the owner/manager) is alway friendly and engaging. Truly one of the main things I look forward to when I visit North Carolina.

We love International Delights and eat here all the time! The food is really really good and customer service is always A1. This is the perfect hybrid restaurant for vegetarians/vegans and carnivores/omnivores to happily have an equal amount of options. Every time we come we are greeted so warmly, it's like dropping by your favorite cousin's house for a delicious hot plate of vittles. This place sits high in my Favorite Restaurants in Durham!

Good hot food cooked to order. Plenty of seating, fountain drinks, Mediterranean and International dishes. Reasonable pricing, quick service, nice crew as well. Also NO ketchup, see the images - owner mandate.

We decided to give this restaurant a try for some variety in our dining routine. We are so happy we did. The food portions are huge and the lamb gyros are absolutely delicious. The lamb is cooked to perfection and so tender. We were so impressed we had dinner from International Delights twice in one week. The staff is pleasant and truly a delight. They will also do substitutions within reason and they have vegetarian options. Ninth Street is so lucky to have this gem. Thanks so much guys!

This place has always been consistent on great food with grate flavor, for decades... I love the falafel! My favorite part is their "no ketchup" policy for any food, except for the fries. 👏🏽

One of my favorite places to get food in Durham. The cheesesteak and hummus are the best in town, the fries are banging, and the owner and staff are incredibly kind and down to earth. It’s fast and it’s casual but I always feel fancy eating food from there because of all the delicious spices. Eat here and you’ll be supporting a place and people who are a part of what makes Durham great!

We had high expectations given the strong reviews. We might have picked the wrong night as we found the food to be just fair. The hummus was bland with little garlic or salt. Grape leaves were cooked or just different. We tried a few other Mediterranean restaurants in the area and thought they were better.

Chicken shawarma plate is delicious. The best Med food I have tried so far in the whole area.

Was sitting in Chapel Hill visiting some friends, started talking about food places, they mention this place. Husband has been before, I haven't. It was amazing! I ordered the chicken philly, added green peppers and mushrooms (can't remember if they already came with), husband ordered a philly, same way. Usually I add salt and pepper, but only needed to add pepper on my tomatoes because the chicken was so good. Only reason I can't give a 5-star is because I thought seasoned fries would be other than salt and pepper...I could've done that. I will be back if I am ever in town again as we live in South Carolina.
