Service was not as good as it once was. Saturday night and restaurant wasn't too crowded. our server only had 3 tables at the time and at no point did anyone come by to fill our water glasses up.
Also portion size seemed smaller from what I remember from previous visits.

It was a breakfast buffet. The food on the buffet was lukewarm at best and not very visually appealing. The taste and experience were mediocre at best. The wait staff were good and cleared plates diligently.

Very good Greek food and service. Even though this is a chain the quality of the food is excellent especially the gyros and greek salads. We shared humus and grilled octopus as well!

The food is excellent. There is quite a variety of delicious items. The ambiance is pleasing and soothing. For the quality of food offered, the Sunday brunch is priced reasonably. Yes, I have told friends about Ayhan's and will return soon.

I’ve eaten there before many times. I feel the quality of the food was of lesser quality at brunch, which this meal was, than when I have gone there for dinner.

I love this place! I used to visit the plainview location, but I was sad to see that rent got way to high there. This location is a bit out of the way for me, but I definitely will be back as there is just no better food in Long Island.
Without a doubt, the food is great, the service is top notch, the decor is spot on and I couldn't ask for a more authentic Mediterranean place.

Thank you Juan Carlos (server) for making Ayhan's a complete and welcome surprise to my wife and me. We did not expect to find such quality and quantity in what initially appeared to be kind of an "oddball" joint. This is a place that we knew about for years passing its locations on Sunrise Highway in RVC. We never stopped to try it out. After they took over the much beloved Raay-Nor's location on Sunrise, I thought it was just another run of the mill middle east-style restaurant. But fine dining it's not. Regardless, while the restaurant is missing Raay-Nor's pine straw covered roof (1949 - 2005), I think that Ayhan's will have as good a run there as did the old fried chicken and hamsteak eatery.

We've been going to this restaurant since it opened. We are never disappointed. There aren't too many places to get authentic Mediterranean food, which is different than Greek. My favorite entree is the skirt steak, always tender and tasty.
