We come there regularly & this time invited some friends. We were highly embarrassed by the terrible service. The waitress never came back to the table after our dinner was served to see if things were OK, ask us if we wanted dessert, or give us the check. We had to ask someone else to get us the check.

Ayan's is a great place for Greek food. i love the lamb ribs, which are very flavorful. I get grilled vegetables instead of the
traditional rice and potatoes.

Ayan's Shish Kabob is a great place to get a reasonably priced Greek lunch or dinner. In addition to the shish Kabob, they serve
the whole menu of Greek favorite. The Chumas appetizer is particularly good as were the the lamb ribs.

We went on a Saturday night. The new spot (across the street from the previous location in the Source) was a pleasant suprise. Decor was tasteful and welcoming but the real show stopper was the service. Excellent and attentive without being overbearing or bothersome. We were so pleased with the service - truly better than any we've had in months anywhere! We were a bit disappointed with the food. It was tasty but left us feeling a little short. The mixed grill Romanian steak was flavorful, the lamb gyro meat was moist and not dried out but the lamb chop was 75% fat. We were hoping for something just a bit more - but overall a great meal and a great place

Of all the Ayhan's restaurants the one in Westbury is the nicest in my opinion. We went on a weeknight so restaurant was practically empty. Food here is good, but nothing spectacular. Service and ambiance make it worth it. If you want good Mediterranean at a reasonable price its a good place.

The food arrived lukewarm. The service was overly attentive. I put down my fork to take a breath and a busboy asked if he could wrap the rest of my dinner. We were rushed through three courses in under an hour - and the restaurant was nearly empty.

We liked the appetizers very much. Generous portions and very flavorful. It was a little expensive, that might inhibit us from returning. Entrees were great. But the felafel was surprisingly the weakest dish...a little dry.

We have been to Ayhan's restaurants on numerous occasions. While the food was good, the service was awful. We asked the waiter to bring more bread many times before he complied and the water was not refilled until we asked a number of times. There were no apologies offered, nor did the waiter seem at all concerned. The restaurant was not busy at our early hour, and there was truly no excuse for the lack of interest.

For the first time I was disappointed in the service at Ayhan's - the waitress took a ridiculously long time to return when asked for our check and pick it up after we put the money down and waited for change. Also, the kafta kebob was extremely dry - almost too difficult to eat - these places are always outstanding, maybe caught a bad night, but they need to improve on how we were served this past week.

One of best Mediterranean Restaurants. The chicken cooked on the skewer could not have been more perfect. Service was a pleasure. It was busy, he was working hard, and so attentive. Tasting the chicken made me want to sample many things off the menu. Hummis was cool, fresh, and tasty. I was also happy with the tasted of the red wine that was served with the meal.

A bustleing atmosphere does not diminish the enjoyment of food,drink and friends. We were a group of eight and the wait staff was extremely attentive and accommodating. Generous portions of delicious homemade bread and pita introduced us to the fare and were replenished without request. The hummus appetizer was beyond reproach-the best I have experienced.The mixed kebabs were succulent and cooked as ordered. We were looking forward to dessert but one member of our party insisted on going for a walk because he just could not eat any more! We will be back again for dessert and more.

They must have been kidding! Even with good, not great food. It would have been nice to see or find our waitress after she dropped off our food. My wife tried their Prix Fixe Valentine’s Day Special; she was not able to eat her desert and asked if she could just have to go. Well when we got home, the piece of Baklava looked like it was a left over from some other table. The whole piece was 1 inch wide and 2 inches long. What a joke and by no means was it a free meal.

Good food, but annoying when I was greeted. The maitre d' insisted he knew who I was, and would not take my name. When I asked if my friend had arrived he said "NO." That was incorrect. She was already sitting down, and had given my name for the reservation. He thought I was someone else and wouldn't even listen when I wanted to give my name in order to receive my open table points. I did finally find my dinner friend, and the maitre d' realized his error. But I thought he was difficult and unprofessional - NOT customer-friendly.
ALSO - the server was in a hurry to leave and not explain everything fully when we had questions. The food was very good. This is a casual eatery but service needs improvement FROM THE TOP DOWN.

Service was slow, the waitress was hard to track down on several occasions (less then 10 customers in the restaurant), although I did see her outside smoking a cigarette when we left and - guess she had time for that? Food was good, meat a little drier then hoped for. Also a little pricey for the amount of food delivered.

The food at was well presented for a brunch with a wide variety of breakfast foods and classic Mediterranean fare. The staff was preparing delicious zucchini pancakes but there weren't enough for the number of people present for brunch-I would suggest that they make larger batches in a larger pan each time. The waitstaff was efficient and courteous. As is always the case with a buffet, some of the food was not hot enough, but overall the brunch was very good for the price in a pleasant setting.

A horrible dining experience. The waiter mixed up our order several times and gave us wrong information about the food. The chicken kabobs were sparse and dried out. The steak was well done not rare as ordered and it was like shoe leather. The vegetables that were represented as steamed had oil on them. The food was tasteless and of poor quality. The portions were skimpy. There were very few customers in the restaurant so I guess nobody ever goes back. We had bought a discount coupon and were very sorry. Even with the discount, the meal was of poor value. We will never go back.

This is a very busy restaurant. The food that we ordered had mixed reviews. The salad came before our drinks, and before appetizers. The soup was good. One person ordered lamb chops, when they came, they were loin not baby chops, the manager said they don't have baby chops anymore. The grilled pompano was not great. The stuffed sole and lamb shank were excellent. They were very accommodating and apologetic for the mistakes.

Nice quiet romantic setting. Went on a Friday night. Attentive service (but not too attentive). Could chat between courses and no rush which is welcome change from other places. Food was good had moussaka, and some other entrees. Chocolate desert was appropriately delicious and high calorie.
