My husband and I were happy to see this restaurant has reopened. The food was as wonderful as we remembered in the old location. But what impressed me most was the kindness of all the employees. They were very patient with my husband and his physical challenges. The Manager and waitress was very attentive to our needs. We will be... More

La Shish is a tradition in my family, whenever we are in the Detroit area. Fantastic food, friendly service, and generous portions. This time I had the 3 lamb chop dinner with grilled veggies and a baba ganooj appetizer. I am staying away from bread and rice right now and found a lot of delicious options. The flavors are delicious... More

Good variety and service was great. At lunch time it was not packed, but not sure why. This was a good stop for lunch. I am not usually a big fan of Mediterranean food. This made me think about trying more things from this restaurant.

Go to La Shish hungry. All of their portions our large and delicious. If you have not tried middle eastern cuisine, this is the best place to sample it. The staff is amazing and will take the time to explain the items on the menu. The hummus appetizer is an absolute must and the pita bread is homemade. We went... More

I haven't been to La Shish for many years, not since they reopened. Our lunch there reminded me of just how incredible good Middle Eastern food can be. I live in Ann Arbor and it is overrun with passable Middle Eastern food, marked only by its sameness. La Shish may be the best in Southeastern Michigan and certainly in the... More

This is the best restaurant for Middle Eastern food. We live in NJ but have enjoyed the food here several times. The lamb chops are first class but then so is the tabouli, meat filled grape leaves, fresh tasting pita. I think the assorted appetizer plate would be the best item to try. The falafel are the finest. Wow, this... More

We absolutely love La Shish! The Chicken Sajii was excellent! They give ample portions and you can't eat it all-there's enough to have another meal! And our server Mona Lisa was so patient and kind and funny...love her. This is by far the best Middle Eastern restaurant in Michigan and I wish they had more locations around town.

Thank CICEE2
