Nice enough place, waitress good but overworked. We were not the only frustrated patrons waiting to long. Lamb was overcooked, rice not very flavorful. Skimpy on the veggies. The highlight was the excellent yogurt sauce served with the pita. Loved it!

The choices seem endless on a menu filled wit authentic cuisine. Grape Leaves and Hummus are a great choice for appetizer. The Spinach Pie and Baklava was the best I have ever had. Our servers were fantastic and we recommend highly this is a place to go if you love Mediterranean food!

This was my second time dining at this restaurant. The first time it was great but the second time not so much. The staff seemed to be overwhelmed that which led to forgetfulness, mixing up an order and slow service. Also my son's chicken dish was on the "grisly side". The waitress did make up for it by offering him another dish. On the plus side the rest of the food orders went from good to excellent. I my guess is that it was a Saturday night and the place was packed. The first time we were there it was a weeknight. I would give the place another chance however.

So what happened to the once mighty Ayhan's? Most of them have closed down, but thankfully the Baldwin restaurant still has the same delicious food as the closed ones did. You really can't go wrong with any of their dinners, the chicken, steak, lamb, etc. are all delicious and their sauces are superb. The only thing wrong is that the place itself is not nice looking at all. It's a bit on the dull side and the tables are cramped. The service is very good, but I wish it all looked nicer.
