Ayse personally recommended what to eat and totally took care of me, even brnging my own hummus plate to dip my crackers separate from everyone else's. Food was delicious!

We've been dining there on and off over the past 20 years, and it's always cozy and the food is yummy. Great homemade specialties and Turkish coffee with sweets. It's a typical hidden hole-in-the-wall gem kind of place.

We visited Ayse's on a recent trip to Ann Arbor. We love Turkish food and have travelled to Turkey. This is not a fancy place to eat. You order at the counter by the front door and they bring the food to your table. The...More
