Went there on Saturday night at 5:30 before going to the Detroit Film Theatre. There were two other tables of twosomes and a couple people at the bar. Waiter seemed friendly enough but when our friends arrived it all went downhill. We ordered and the...More

This place is going nowhere but away, and it's painfully evident. When we arrived and noticed only one customer at the bar with no less than 3 employees standing behind the bar, we expected better service and attention. The waiter however was more interested in...More

We came in for dinner early on a Saturday. The place wasn't busy, so we thought it would be quick. It took a long time to get service throughout our meal. Our drinks were never refilled. The menu had many Asian items, but then fish...More

We visited this restaurant and reported on it a year ago. We were again between two events about 1½ hours apart, so we tried the Maccabees again. Soon after we sat down our order was taken and we waited for the order to arrive. After...More

Reasonably priced and great selections. The fried rice bowl with the 60 second egg was great and the Brussel Sprout Bao buns were as good as I ever had. The $5 Tullamore Dew was also a pleasant surprise. Parked for $5, took the Q line...More

The totally new menu (as of about 4/1/17) is described as Asian Soul. They now have a large number of mostly Asian appetizers that can be shared. We shared two Thai Summer Veggie Rolls with peanut sauce, which were excellent. They have steamed rice bowls,...More

Mediocre and don't bother. Very noisy. Everything was very bland and no fresh spices were used. Meatballs were bland. Peppers were tasteless. Salad was a joke, it tasted like a bag salad from Kroger and it was even wilted. Fried chicken was tasteless. And they...More

I don't think so. Perhaps you can just eat the sandwich filling? I'm gluten intolerant, so that's often what I do.
