Tasty food drinks and more! Popular spot with a variety of Mediterranean specialties. My favorite is the Malawach Sabich.

MishMish used to be its own restaurant in this location but now it only offers some of its food at the counter of Marcel restaurant. You can choose your options at the counter and then sit either inside or outside. So as long as you understand that they don’t offer wait service, it’s ok. We chose items from the MishMish menu only. Everything we ate was delicious. The guy at the counter was nice. Overall a decent experience.

Great place! The honey and zaatar fried chicken sandwich was absolutely incredible. Good coffee and dessert as well!

Amazing food every single time, the move hasn’t changed any quality. Pita is out of the this world, and so is everything else. We’ve struggled to find comparable Mediterranean food in Manhattan.

Mishmish has the distinction of being a world-class restaurant, but still retaining it's neighborhood roots and no frills vibe. I am always impressed with the nice touches Chef Meny and his team adds to everything. Like during the pandemic, if you ordered a family style meal, they always offered good portions as well as a bonus dessert or bread for leftovers. And packaged in good quality containers with napkins. You can't go wrong with any dish you order, but a recent favorite is the rotisserie chicken or lamb shakhuka. We also loved the hummus, roasted beets with labne and sabich.

Mishmish was introduced to us when we first moved to the area. My cousin searched his rolodex of great restaurants and chose Mishmish to take us to. We've got back so many times... we love it. We eat pescatarian, so we get vegetarian or fish. I LOVE the Healthy Mess salad, my all time favorite salad of all time. They also have lots of other good food, and their pita is INCREDIBLE. Homemade, fresh, perfect pita with super good dips like hummus and baba ganoush. Love their use of beets. They've since moved to their sister location in Upper Montclair. We will follow them all over NJ, best dining spot because it's relaxed and delicious.

This spot was originally hard to find but it is located inside a bakery. I ordered mama's chicken over rice and thought it was okay. Not something I would order again but would love to try some of their other menu options. The service was great. Once we ordered and sat down the food came out shortly afterwards.

Mishmish is INCREDIBLE! I have never had a bad meal from there. Their food is so delicious and so creative. Over the pandemic, we have gotten premade meals from Mishmish. We always get the Vegan meal. It is amazing. It comes with large tofu curry, the best hummus I have ever had, bread, delicious rice, and a dessert. I have gone pre pandemic and I absolutely LOVED it every time. Anytime someone comes to visit me in the area, I take them there. I can't wait to return to Mishmish soon!

This was the first time going since they changed locations. Happy to report that they still have it. Amazing meal. We ordered a lamb sandwich, chicken, and shawarma for two. Everything was wonderful. Smoked eggplant side was amazing as well. So happy to have this place near us, we will return again soon.

This is our favorite spot in town! The food is just petfect. Its cooked perfectly everytime, the flavors are outrageous and simple, and it is always as fresh as could be. We love all of Chef Meny's restaurants but Mish Mish is the best. I dont even like Chicken and I can eat all of his chicken!


We had been looking for a perfect place for shawarma and the search completes here. Been to this place twice recently for pickup- awesome food, great staffs and good packaging. We had shawarmas and grilled chicken, both tastes awesome with the hummus they serve.

One of my favorite places in Montclair, this place does not disappoint. The hummus is always fresh. The xhicken shawarma, shrimp burger, lamb meatballs are all so delicious and be sure to try the Malabi for desert. Yum!
