I'm always skeptical about trying out Middle Eastern Cuisine since I grew up on my grandmothers and cook it myself. I have to say that, that Anita's Kitchen is as close as it can get for me and my friends. Great atmosphere, fantastic food and priced just right. It's always busy, so you may have to wait a bit, but... More

This is easily some of the best food in all of southeastern Michigan. I wife and I went on a Friday night and fortunately did not have to wait. It was St. Patrick's Day with ugly weather and we figured those who were out were somewhere else. We were seated immediately in the busy restaurant. Our waiter, who we've had... More

Anita's Kitchen has become a landmark in the city of Ferndale. The restaurant offers traditional Lebanese/Mediterranean cuisine with a smile. Service, price, and quality are exceptional. My family and I went to this place many times and we've never been disappointed.

I have lived and traveled in the Middle East, Turkey and Greece and was really impressed by the food at Anita's . Great garlic yogurt and a top notch mixed grill plate with even more food than I could handle. Friendly service in a comfortable atmosphere. There are many Mideast restaurants in this area, Anita's is worth the stop

The black bean soup is always a good starter. The flavor is rich and warm and i swear there is a hint of cinnamon in it. My favorite.

We are blessed in metro Detroit with great mid-eastern restaurants ... Anita's Kitchen, since 1981, is not to be missed! Our Mixed Mezza served two for lunch with ample leftovers for at least 2 more dinners. Included: skewers of shish tawook & shish kafta; chicken & beef shawarma; grape leaves & falafel; hummus, tabbouleh, tatteush, kabeese & pita bread!.

Went in for lunch with a friend . Our timing could not have been better as we were seated immediately and had very attentive service. We ordered an appetizer and lunch shortly after. Appetizer of lentils, spinach and goat cheese was served with warm pita bread and was delicious. The chicken shwarma was ok. Everytime I have been to Anitas... More

Good atmosphere, good prices. I had a Vim and Vigor which was a warm light cocktail. Very tasty and appropriate for the season. The schwarma was good but our waiter lost track of us. He forgot to bring the extra garlic sauce and believe me without it the schwarma sandwich was DRY. My friends had different meals and their portions... More

The atmosphere of this place is relaxing. Went while I was doing my daniel fast and the food was very flavorful. The hummus is great with the veggies and chicken sharmwa combo. Only downside is that it cost $2.50 to substitute rice for veggies.
