The items labeled gluten free on the menu are apparently not. They need to retrain staff on preparing and serving gluten free meals.

There aren't many Middle Eastern restaurants outside Dearborn that are really good. I think you need to be in the culture to really get the soul of this cuisine. But, Palm Palace seems to get it.

This is a traditional Middle Eastern restaurant, in all the best ways. The falafel patties are amazing: fried, yet light. The mixed pickles are perfectly seasoned. The hummus and the garlic paste are buttery and rich.

The fattoush portion was enormous, topped with beautifully charred chicken breast. The chicken shawarma wrap is a bargain for $4.99, but a bit dry.

And, the service from Hoda was good...or, as well as she could manage considering how overloaded with tables she was. As the dinner rush set in, things started to come out slower and slower. We had to ask twice for coffee. But, she was such a sweetie that I can overlook that.

Fortunately, the freshly brewed coffee was worth the wait. But, the cups are the kind with the overly small handle, so your hand cramps up after a while.

The baklava was dense and crispy without being too sweet. But, the custard was extremely sweet, though it still tasted so good that I kept going back for more. I won't go back for more rice pudding: it had a weird taste to it.

I will happily meet my brother here again.

Love that they have added back the Chicken Sajee back to the menu. We had not been going there because it had been discontinued. Wish they had kept both the beef Sajee and the lunch sandwich in pita. We are coming back!

This was our second time to Palm Palace and it was another great experience. The service was great (Preston was our waiter and was probably one of the best waiters I have ever had in a restaurant), the food was delicious and the bread and garlic spread was irresistible. We drove about an hour to meet friends there and I would be willing to drive that just for dinner.

We had a large party and none of us really enjoyed the food. The service was great, but none of the dishes (including shawarma, kabobs, salmon, chicken tawook, etc.) tasted particularly fresh. Most of it was dry and flavorless. No one in our party thought the food was great, which is a shame because you can get some really amazing Mediterranean food in Ann Arbor for less than half of these prices. On the bright side, the service was good and the free tea provided in the front of the store was very tasty. Still, would not recommend.

We called ahead and requested a seating in the cushioned area with the overhead awnings; we were assured that we would be seated in that area. When we arrived, the servers had no idea that we had done so, and the seats were already taken. We were instead seated in the normal area, which was fine. The servers were very friendly, cordial, and understanding (I was with my grandparents, who do not speak English well). After we ordered, it took about 35 minutes (I checked my watch) for bread and butter to come out with the appetizers; it would probably have been better for the bread/butter to come out first. Besides the lack of seating we were promised and the slow start, everything went smoothly. The food was good, the ambience was pleasant, and the servers were very friendly. I must warn everyone- the portions are HUGE here! They are priced fairly, so unless you are a strong eater, expect plenty of tasty leftovers!

Service was absolutely horrible. Waitress wasn’t a good listen and couldn’t remember anything. Finally had another waiter handle our checks. Very disappointing. Requested a table in quiet area. We were shown to a booth. Then got a table, in middle of packed dining room. Food was good. Prices average.

The food is great. The pita bread comes steaming hot out of the brick oven and simply can't be beat. It takes a little bit to get your food but definitely worth the wait. Seemed a bit loud but the place was packed.

Overall great place. I would definitely recommend a reservation as there was a long wait as we were leaving.
