***A REAL REVIEW***Great spot to pick up and goThis place overall is pretty good. I say this because I have run into some issues, but judging by surrounding circumstances I could understand why those situations happened the way they did. The food is great, it is always fresh. It is a little on the high price end but it is worth it. I love the Grilled Chicken pitas and they are generous with the chicken ;) which is a winner for me. I prefer to pick up and go. I have eaten inside and it is too stuffy- Also the waitresses are not very approachable or friendly, you would think that in a business they would stress that the waitresses be friendly after all they are the ones customers most interacted with.Parking Lot is so hard to get around, it is so tiny. They now accept debit/credit card which they didn't before, so that is great. I tell ya I never carry cash, but this is one place I always remembered to have cash on hand- back when they did not accept debit/credit card. The not so great dining in, and small parking lot- does not discourage me from going and picking up food from here and enjoying it!
This restaurant just opened, and it seems like they are having staffing problems and quality problems with the food. Meat is sometimes cold, fries are old and stale, tabbouli salad was excessively salty, and there's often a lack of spices. I suggest the owner should offer a generous "money back if not satisfied" guarantee, so you don't end up paying for food that's messed up. You might get lucky, as it's occasionally good. It's also hard to find this place, since it's not visible from either Grand River or Fenkel (5 Mile). You need to look just S of the Royal Fresh Market, and there's a hidden strip of shops behind a nail salon there. It's next to the "Panda" Chinese restaurant. I'd hurry, since with this poor location and spotty quality, it may not last long.

Most food is made from scratch right there... beer, bread, ice cream, cheese. Pretty cool, right? But wait, they also grow many of their herbs and vegetables on the roof of the restaurant. Yes the food is unusual, this is why most people go out to eat. And I think they hang their proverbial hat on the quirky staff. If they rub you the wrong way, ask to speak with a manager. The manager Stephen is particularly helpful, friendly, witty... sounds like I may have a crush! I think taking in the atmosphere and the vibe right off the bat will really help your dining experience.
