In a city where there's a shawarma restaurant almost on every corner, Green Cedar stands out as the best. The secret is the garlic paste in the sandwich, so strong and zesty that this is definitely not a place to take a date. Green Cedar...More

My daughters were visiting from out of town. We spotted this lovely little restaurant in the shopping mall and decided to stop for lunch. The inside was very clean and neat--always a good sign to us. The staff was friendly and eager to please. There...More

Fed the whole family gang of 23 people and everyone loved it. they consistently have great food at a fair price. They have recently remodeled and added more inside tables and freshened the decor.

Compared to other Middle Eastern restaurants, this is just OK. Nothing bad, but nothing great either. Won't go back when there are so many much places to eat at. If this is the best in the area, that is very sad.

This place has spoiled me! After going here, I tried going to other Mediterranean restaurants, they don't measure up. The fattoush salad has so much flavor and is not drowning in dressing. I have my dad hooked on the grape leaves. The only down fall...More

I swear they make the best hummus you can find anywhere! Also, the salad dressing is tough to beat along with the falafel. It's a small place, not designed for dining in although there are a couple small tables. The only thing I wish they...More

My fiancée and I order from Green Cedar at least once a month. We order 2 dinner entrees and a large hummus. It is plenty! We usually order the chicken shawarma plate and the shish tawook (beef). It's enough to last us 2 nights and...More

I ordered carry-out from this establishment back in Summer of 2013. Seeing the restaurant, I immediately expected fast-food quality, as looks like the quintessential lunch spot (3-4 small tables and an eating "shelf"), however, the chicken shawarma wrap was the best wrap that I've ever...More

Excellent middle eastern food. The hummus comes highly recommended, but I had the chicken shawarma. Definitely worth visiting if you are in the area.

http://www.urbanspoon.com/r/19/661235/restaurant/Detroit/Green-Cedar-Livonia Small with only a few tables to eat your carry-out, but absolutely delicious food. Best for carry-out only. We Detroiters know Arabic food & this is some of the best. Staff is super friendly, prices are very low.
