Outstanding meal with a couple surprises

Prior to my visit to Palm Palace, I was not very familiar with Middle Eastern food. If the meal I had tonight was a good example of the cuisine of that region, then I'll be seeking out more Middle Eastern restaurants as I travel. The service, initially, was good and attentive.

Great food - the best hummus I've had (so smooth) and the little pita breads fresh from the oven that went with it were fabulous. I had the Saute with chicken and mushrooms - excellent.

Yummmmmm! Palm palace is simply amazing! The hummus is the best in the world! The garlic is to die for.. The bread? So fresh and warm! The chicken lemon oregano is my sisters favorite entree, mine is the beef Kabob! The rice pilaf is phenomenal I love the almonds in it. You really can't go wrong with anything you order... More

Palm Palace is a mainstay for Middle Eastern food in the Ann Arbor area. Everything I have ever had here was great. The service is always very good and I never had to wait for a table. The prices are moderate but a good value for the amount of food you get. They also have a fresh juice bar.

You must start with the mint lemonade slushy...sip throughout dinner to cleanse your palate. Next order hummus with warm out of the oven homemade pita bread. We split the lamb shish kabob with grilled veggies and Greek salad...honestly we didn't have room for even a smidgen of Bach -lava or a nice cup of coffee so you must order accordingly... More

The food and service is always great. I love taking family there especially when i have a large group. The food is always made right and the servings are generous. Hoda is our favorite server. She has been there for years and does an excellent job. The atmosphere is friendly and welcoming. Good place for business lunches also.

We arrived at 5pm on a Saturday evening and were seated in the entry area. Customers were a never ending stream behind us and the restaurant filled quickly. The humus platter with vegetables was a wonderful start with a mint lemonade cooler and the never ending warm pita were very tasty. I found my lamb kafta a bit dry but... More

I had a hotel just up the street and walked over for dinner. Funky Middle Eastern decor was fun, and the hostess and staff very welcoming. I had the hummus appetizer which was HUGE! Nice bread was delivered with a garlic butter spread that was delicious. I should have stopped ordering right there. Foolishly, I ordered the Lamb Shish Kabob... More

I have dined at this restaurant more than once. We went just after moving to the Ann Arbor area and multiple times since. The menu is fantastic and serves up a wide variety of dishes which are generous in portion and are often brought home. I so enjoy the taste of lamb and the shwarma is delicious. Lamb isn't served...

I've been here about a dozen times. The food is always delicious. I've had a couple of mediocre servers and some excellent ones. The decor is nice. Overall I think it's a good value.
