We always marvel at the care with which they prepare meals and look after customers. Prices are quite reasonable and portions just right. It's a lot like having a meal with family or friends, these proprietors are that personable. We enjoy the buffet as much...More

Thought we were gonna enjoy lunch at Woody's but they must have moved. The almost empty restaurant should have been our 1st clue to leave. We seated ourselves by the window but moved to another table to get warmer. It didn't get warmer. There was...More

This place used to be high on my list of regular restaurants but it has declined and gotten more expensive. Sultans in East Lansing is much better,

We have visited many middle eastern restaurants in the nation. This one had the best tasting dishes. The lunch buffet is a fantastic deal. The service was very good too.

This place has great food, but nobody ever seems to go except for their lunch buffet (also excellent). I don't see how the place is still in business, but I really hope it sticks around as the food is much better than Woody's or Sultans's

Not bad, but not the best Middle Eastern restaurant in the Lansing area. We went there for our anniversary in October--I think it's gone downhill a little since opening. It seemed worn although the food was good. Waitstaff were highly disorganized. We arrived around 7:00...More
