Don't get me wrong, the food was good. In fact, I'm eating the leftovers for lunch as I'm writing this. I just don't see the value in paying $20 for a plate of cheap chicken, mashed up chick peas and rice with a few almonds sprinkled on it. Atmosphere was nice, location is great. I just don't see the value.... More

Located right in the heart of the U of M's "Campus Town," this place appears quite popular with students. We ate dinner here for thefirst time with my brother and his wife - none of us particularly familiar with Mediterranean food. Our waiter was very helpful in understanding the menu and making appropriate selections. I selected Koshary, billed as an... More

My wife and I were trying to decide where to eat and went into La Marsa to look at the menu. We were not sure we wanted Mediterranean food and began to leave, but a customer there told us we were making a big mistake and commented how wonderful the food was. So, we stayed. Are we glad we did!... More

The food is good but you can get the same thing for less at several other places in town. Skip this one.

Thoroughly enjoyed the tasty kebabs, super-fresh bread, and garlic sauce. The Detroit area is such a global hotspot for Middle Eastern cuisine. This place can't compete with the very best of its peers, and it doesn't pretend to. What it really has going is LOCATION plus great-enough food that would be pulling 5 stars in most any other town. And... More

Met up with a group of friends here that are local to the area (I'm not). Read some of the reviews before going here, and a lot of the reviews said good food, bad service. I would have to agree. The food is great! We had the starter combo which was really good. Its very filling though. I had the... More

The food was quite good and the servings were generous. The service was excellent. The restaurant was very noisy however. It could have used some wall and/or ceiling treatments to baffle the echoing.

Went there recently and it was our first time here. Fairly decent food. Have had much better in the Dearborn area. The waitstaff however, were extremely attentive and made it special. This place has some Egyptian food on the menu which was a let down. A mixture of pasta and rice. Wasn't that palatable. Nothing against the restaurant, but the... More

We ordered a shish kebab and a soup, and it was one of the worst meal in AA up to now. All dishes were served with a lot of nice bread but shish kebab was the worst we ever had - meat was so strongly soaked in vinegar that it almost lost its natural taste. Soup was ok but nothing... More
