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.

Went here with a Groupon. Although they were out of the chicken gyro, I got the lamb gyro. It was delicious and I'm stil savoring the leftovers

I was so excited to go that I made a reservation to make sure we would be accommodated. The owner was at the front fumbling. Rude to the staff and did not even acknowledge us when we arrived. After taking in a group that walked in with us (that did not have a reservation), he proceeded to overlook us when another older couple came in AFTER us w/o a reservation. Disgusted with the owners manners (or lack there of) & how he treated his staff. Place was also very unorganized. The staff was bumping me to get to the tables. Maybe they need to remodel and change owners

Everything was very enjoyable. My only complaint would be the lack of labeling on the buffet. We had to track down help to figure out what the food options were but once we did it was all quite tasty.

We've been eating dinner here regularly for many years, as well as their outstanding Sunday brunch. Sam, the most attentive manager, has become a friend, always ready with a smiling personal greeting. The Mediterranean food is always delicious and a great value. It's our "go to" place whether we're just hungry, or want to bring guests to a casual "neighborhood gem."

A good consistent neighborhood restaurant. We had to ask for glasses of water and bread for the table but once they brought those items everything else flowed well. Food portions are good size. Prices are reasonable

They have a wide selection of food at their Sunday buffet. There were Middle Eastern delights and American favorites such as eggs, Bacon, and sausage. It was far better that the food on a busy Saturday when they are overwhelmed.

The buffet on Sunday was barely edible - food wasn't replenished, what was in the trays was dried out and unpalatable. Children were allowed to pick fruit out of the large bowl with their hands. We will definitely not try this restaurant again.

The food was delicious. Waiting to place our order was a little longer than expected considering they did not appear busy. Once we had a waitress take the order the service was great.

The restaurant was quiet and quite warm - my server did not seem especially happy and was sweating profusely. His service was prompt but he did not tell me about any specials or tell me about the food I was served. The portions were ample and the food was ok. I would go again but not for any special occasion.
