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

The setting is a strip mall and nothing at all special, but the food and the service were fantastic.

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.

I always go here when I go back to visit my mom. Best Shish Kafta! Great portions! Their dinner salad is amazing. I love all of it. The pickled turnips to the garlic dip. Great for takeout or dine in. GO HERE! I wish I could have them cater my wedding, but it's up in Traverse City!
