This is a tiny little restaurant in a strip mall in Farmington Hills. The food there is very good and pretty authentic. They made their pita's fresh, brought out pipping hot. For appetizers we had kibbie and falafel. The kibbie was okay, but the falafel was FANTASTIC, DELICIOUS and OH so GOOD. If you like it, have some there. We... More

Horrible service. I would never recommend them to anyone. Hired them for a graduation party came about 1.5 hrs late. I had guests show up and leave and I had no food out. Once they started cooking, they didn't have enough meat/chicken (i had hired their cook to grill on site). They didn't bring any tools or containers for the... More

With literally dozens and dozens of Middle East restaurants in the Metro Detroit area, this one in suburban Farmington Hills stands out as one of the better one. There are actually two La Marsa restaurants in Farmington Hills, this one on Grand River Avenue being the larger of the two. The food is very good, whether shish tawook, fattoush, or... More

Great food, freshly made, awesome dips and breads and nice service. I love this restaurant for the quality of food they have. Nice seating area which has ample space for get-together and other occasions that involves more number of people.

We've been here a few time's and even have taken order's out and have never been unhappy with taste or quantities! I absolutely love the lamb chilli!! I routinely have the lamb shwarma salad and my wife prefers the fattoush salad with lamb. And we can't forget the pita puffs with garlic hummus dip that's served complimentary with each entree!!...

So we had gotten a groupon for this place by accident, we had thought it was the one on Grand River and Drake. Anyhow, we got there, and the place was packed, which is not hard because it's so small, and actually they have more seating in there than they should, in my opinion. The food was ok, and the...

I like to get the tabbouleh to go, which has always been very fresh and delicious. However, it has no preservatives, so be sure to eat it up quickly. I suggest mixing it with hummus. (You can also get that from them, but it's nothing special, so might as well save some money and buy that at a grocery store.)... More

Love the fresh pita straight from the oven and garlic spread. My husband and I will often share the very generous chicken shawarma dinner, and a cup of the lentil soup or lamb chili is a must. Always enjoy the evening even more when we get Viktor as our server. So happy to have this restaurant so close to home... More

Very good food and service. Simply delicious. Good options for vegeterians. Breads and garlic paste is the best and so as hummus. Always love to go for lunch and dinner.
