Glad I opened my mind

For many years I haven't even considered a Mediterranean or Middle Eastern restaurant. But my in laws have raved about this place so I agreed to go. It's delicious!

After reading many mixed reviews on this place I decided to try it with my best friend despite our better judgement. From the moment we walked in the door we knew this was going to be a disaster. There were 4 people behind the counter when we walked in. No one greeted or even looked up at us for about... More

Quaint atmosphere with lots of art on walls. The middle eastern cuisine is delicious and have never been disappointed. Staff is attentive and friendly.

I love Steve's Backroom! The soups are wonderful, the eggplant and tomato appetizer is wonderful, and the rice and veggie stew is wonderful. I've purchased their pita bread and it's great. The only problem with the restaurant is that the staff is extremely slow. Whenever we have gone there, there are few patrons, yet the one waitress especially will chat... More

Tiny restaurant with excellent Mediterranean cuisine. It's like the very best of home cooking, and they treat you like family. They make and sell their hummous to a number of grocery stores in the Metro Detroit area. It's that good. Be sure to leave room for the baklava, or take some home. It's amazing. They also have a neatly decorated... More

Was looking forward to our visit and it was just ok. Mixed appetizer plate was very heavy on the olives and light on everything else. Shish kafta were good, but no more than good. Good Turkish coffee, but as we had our coffee, the staff was busy clearing our table, wow ! Won't bother making the trip back. Palm palace... More

The service was good and the prices are reasonable. The Grape Leaves, Stuffed Squash and kibbeh Neyeh were excellent I would definitely be back for more. The crust on the spinach and feta pie was to tough. In the past i have had the Lamb Shank and it has never disappointed me.
