While visiting in Ann Arbor, where we lived 20 years ago, we decided to have a late lunch/early dinner at this very small Middle Eastern restaurant in the downtown area. The last time we were there the tiny restaurant had only two or three tables and functioned primarily as a take-out restaurant. This time we found they had expanded to allow seating for an estimated 25-30 people. Nonetheless, since the restaurant is popular with locals and since they do not accept reservations, there is usually a wait time to be seated during the dinner hour.
Our waiter, Chad, was very nice and very attentive. The food was reasonably tasty, but since Ann Arbor is near Dearborn, where there are dozens and dozens of excellent Lebanese and other Middle East restaurants, the food did not stand out. My wife's lentil soup was so-so, as was her kafta kabob. My chicken shawarma was quite delicious, as was the pita bread and the hummus dip. The tabbouli salad was fair. Portions served were generous and meal pricing, as with many ethnic restaurants, was very reasonable.
You should try Jerusalem Garden if you have not previously tasted Middle Eastern food, and even if you have.
