I have dined at almost every ethnic restaurant in Ann Arbor, but to be honest, the food at this place was probably one of the worst I have had. We went to this place with a friend of mine for lunch. The waitress was really helpful in describing the food and the place looked okay. I ordered a meatloaf dish and my friend ordered two appetizers. The food arrived on time; however, compared to the price we paid, I was shocked to see that my main dish was in the size of a small appetizer. The price (compared to the portion size) can be compared to luxury restaurants on Main street, which is disappointing given the location and the quality of the food served here. The food was kinda cold and did not taste good at all. One of the two appetizers we had was obviously days old and we did not even finish it. Both appetizers were served cold to us, although, given that they had fried ground beef and cheese in them, I assume it should have been served warm. I could even see the solid oil in the ground beef appetizer! Not worth it. I would not return to this place.

I've tried to go there like 5 times. No jokes. It's always closed. Hours are wrong!

Another off the beaten path place in Ann Arbor, it's tucked away behind Wendy's off of plymouth. They have amazing homemade turkish food. The menu rotates regularly but they have amazing mezzos (think small appetizers), great main courses and beautiful deserts. Every lamb dish I've ever had their is amazing especially the lamb with apricots. They have a lovely Lamb kofte (featuring eggplant). They have an array of deserts including a lovely rice pudding. Don't forget the turkish coffee, they make it the traditional way. Also stop by for lunch sometime. They have fairly inexpensive lunch specials!

This is a great little restaurant. It offers real mediterranean home-cooked food at reasonable prices. Ayse always greets people with a smile and states that she cooks the food herself. The service is excellent and the place is always clean. I always enjoy eating there and trying their different dishes. Real food, really good.

I'm good friends with a former employee who introduced me to the place. Ayse is a wonderful and friendly woman and a great cook. Her food will leave you very satisfied!

One of my favorite Turkish restaurants anywhere, including Turkey! Ayse offers delicious home made food and wonderful hospitality. I also often pick up food here for parties at home, and have never had anyone not like her food. She has a dozen or so hot dishes, and a collection of cold salads and deserts. The restaurant is open at lunch time and dinner time only during the week, and at dinner time on Saturdays. Highly recommended!

This charming cafe is one of those hidden delights of Ann Arbor that make the city such a fun place to live. Ayse cooks the food herself and manages the business, so lunch is served 11a - 2p and supper 5p-9pm. Don't go in the middle of the afternoon - Ayse is working to delight you in the evening. Turkish food is not so strange to this Yankee - pepper stuffed w/lamb, eggplant moussaka, chicken & chick peas --what's not to like? The atmosphere is friendly, customers linger over their tea, restrooms are clean, plenty of parking - yes, it's at the back of a mall, but so what? you pass plenty of neat shops on the way!
