I love this restaurant! The service is excellent and the food great. We stopped in for a light dinner before the movie. The bread is warm, the homemade hummus wonderful. I had the lentil soup and fattoush salad. Too much to eat, I would recommend this restaurant.

I've never had true Mid Eastern food before. Glad I went here. Ordered chicken shish kabob. It was excellent. Order it with the lemon oregano sauce. I'm not a big lemon chicken fan, but this was great. Serving of chicken, rice & grilled veggies was generous for $16.00. The chicken vegetable soup was the best I've ever eaten. My husband... More

Outstanding quality of food- Veggie Gallaba, Chicken kebab, fresh juices, the chicken vegetable soup and the garlic sauce were all top notch; Quality of service was very good including the time to serve food. Overall a must visit place!

Yes the place harks back to the old days of La Shish with the fresh oven baked and plentiful garlic sauce, but I find the execution of the staff here to be even better than that of its predecessor. I've gone here at least once a month for the past year and have never been disappointed. The prices are fair... More

I have been to this place from the old days of it being La Shish. The prior management many years ago sold the place with rights to keep the food and menus the same. This is easily the best Middle Eastern food in Michigan. Why? Well, you will notice MANY Middle Eastern joints around the area opening and closing, because... More

The food is consistent from place to place. The bread is always warm and fresh and the meal portions are generous. Parking is a snap and the interior is both comfortable and cosy. Staff, on the other hand can vary. last time I had a whiny Eastern European serve me but overall it's a great alternative to burgers or hot... More

The food here is very good. Excellent flavor in the hummus. Love the Chicken Shish Tawook. Ambience is average but the service is exemplary. Very friendly. Take out is convenient and always hot when I get it home. This is not a cheap meal though. Less expensive but still good (not as good) would be to go to Ali Baba... More
