One of our favorite restaurants but at a different location that had closed. This will be our new one great service some old favorite wait staff food excellent . Branzino is always perfect all lamb dishes and sangria a good choice. Nice to be back with old friends again.
This restaurant is always spot on. The service, food is always outstanding
Amanda was excellent. Sooo efficient. And pleasant!
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.
Food is delicious as always .portions are perfect . Baklava was good too
Great food for the value
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.
Great portions but service wasn’t great had to keep asking for stuff and we were ignored in back room
I love this restaurant! The food was excellent and the staff was very friendly especially to my four grandchildren
Great service (Amanda was terrific) great food & great prices. What more could you ask for?
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.
Had the nicest waiter ever, the food was amazing, and the restaurant has the cutest Mediterranean aesthetic. My family is already planning the next visit!
Great service and food was delicious.
Very welcoming and accommodating of our party of 18. A great place for a party. Wonderful food. Very easy for people with special dietary requirements eg GF or DF
Great place to meet for a healthy lunch. Ample parking.
The lunch specials are an exceptional value. They are generous and tasty
Really good buffet. I was filled up the entire day
We hadn’t been to this restaurant in years as we no longer live in the area, but it wasn’t just as good as we remembered! We thoroughly enjoyed it!
Food was absolutely amazing, as always! The service is always great. And the staff was SO nice, helpful, and well-mannered. I look forward to dining here again soon!
Food was excellent and our waiter was awesome with his recommendations and attentiveness
Best Greek food on Long Island!
Great food and service
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.
Ist time here the Food and service was excellent!!! Will definitely return
Not busy so we were allowed to sit and chat
Never been here , but first time , If I was in the area I would go back . I loved the Garlic sauce with the bread. Oh My was that good !!!!!!!!
Our meal was perfect, so was the drink, and of course our waitress.
It's a great restaurant is adorable portions are huge quality of food is great definitely going back
The baby lamb chops with rice and veggies were delicious. The skirt steak is also excellent. Very good service.
Great food, but it could have been cleaner (dead flies on the window sill by the booths.
We come here all the time. Food is always delicious!
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.
Went here with some friends. Waitress was extremely nice and helpful with the menu. Good food. Portions were big
The food was excellent. The staff was knowledge and very friendly. Always a fun atmosphere.
Food was great, my husband had the grilled octopus and I had the lamb gyro platter...SO MUCH FOOD! The waiter, Juan, was exceptional! His happiness and good spirit was contagious and made the meal even more enjoyable.
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.
Great service, tasty food! The steak kababs taste like filet mignon. Wonderful meal!!!
