This place has been under new ownership for a few years and recently an employee refused to give my 2 year old daughter silverware because he says kids are too messy. no falafel on buffet and found...

A bit pricey, but the selection is broad and the quality is great. Everything is wonderful, but the dolmades here are amazing.

My husband and I went here one day as a lunch date. Its hard for us to find places we can eat out sometimes because I eat a plant-based vegan diet, meaning nothing from an animal at all and primarily vegetables. Anyway, this buffet wasn't huge, but everything was absolutely delicious and fresh when we were there near 2pm on... More

In Indianapolis for business and wanted to find a local place that was different from the chain restaurants. Took a chance on this lunch-only restaurant (11am-2pm) in the Pavilion shopping center and was satisfied with the variety of buffet choices that truly reflected middle-eastern cuisine. Price for two people (w/soft drinks and tax) was $22. A smaller size dining room... More

We've been wanting to stop in here for some time, but for one reason or another, we never made it in. Well, today, with an extra hour to kill and already in the area, Mediterrano Cafe was the perfect solution. Somewhat expensive for a lunch buffet, we felt it was well worth the price. Hummus was surprisingly smooth, and the... More

I stopped at the Mediterrano Cafe for lunch today on a whim. The host was a very pleasant man who made sure I, as a first-time visitor, knew a little something about the type of food they serve. I was familiar with a lot of it but later saw the host with another new customer, describing each dish on the... More

I first tried this cuisine at my employer where Mediterrano Cafe appears periodically as a guest restaurant. My overall favorite is the cooked spinach dish. I'm not a big meat eater and its pleasantly surprising that about 75% of the buffet is vegetarian friendly. Not to worry meat eaters, there are plenty of delicacies for you, too. The lentil salad...

It is not bad, with a distinctive flavor I liked. We had homemade hummus; good. I had lamb and beef; good as well. Compared to Detroit it left a little to be desired, but the first place in Indy I have been with Mediterranean food that was very good. The have a lunch buffet I would love to try. Service... More
