Best hommous, good flavor. I... read more

La Marsa Restaurant provides both eat-in and pick up food from the same menu. And whether you eat in or at home or the office, the food quality is the same--excellent! The restaurant offers up many choices in appetizers and main dishes from which to choose. And while Mediterranean items use regional language, the menu provides clear descriptions to help... More

Good assortment of middle eastern fare- The soup is spicy- if you're with a group the meat tower is great- I didn't recognize some of the things on the menu!

We have eaten at both the Bloomfield Hills and Waterford locations and have always enjoyed their dishes. While some dishes may be a bit spicy, there are lots to choose from. The atmosphere can take you off to an exotic place without ever leaving town. One problem is that their fresh pitas and garlic are so good, I wind up... More

Everything is fresh and made to order. Healthy and tasty. I mostly do carry out, but dine in is very nice.

The setting is a strip mall and nothing at all special, but the food and the service were fantastic. We were making a refueling stop at Oakland County Airport down the street, and walked into this hidden gem 10 minutes before they closed and they were great. The salmon was perfectly done, the hummus and baba ganoush were amazing, everything... More

A very small place with booths and tables. They do a huge take out business. Food is great, prices are moderate, service is great. Their juices are delicious but can take a little time since they make the juice per order.

Best middle eastern food in Waterford (not that there is much competition). But it still is great. The lunch Kafta combo is great and pretty good value for the money.
