Ate at Leena's over the weekend. I must say this place gives you your moneys worth. I tried the chicken kabobs, cabbage salad and hummus. All were excellent! It's fairly new and is located in the old Panera bread location at Woodland Hills. Has anyone else been to Leena's

I tried it last week and I'll go back.  I know some who have annointed it the best in town for Mediterranean food, but I need a couple of more visits (I'm a big fan of Shawkat's and the Cedars).  The guy making sandwiches and wraps at night also works at Pythian Deli downtown, long a favorite of mine.

Leena's has a pretty impressive menu and a lot of of little things that other places don't.  Lots of salads.  I was sort of overwhelmed, honestly.  I had a gyro, but should have gone for the kafta.  I got sort of befuddled reading the menu and went with the first thing I saw.  It definitely has potential.

That's pretty high praise mentioning it in the same sentence as Shawkats.  Anyone know if Dena's is doing very well?  I tried it a couple of times after Halim and Mimi retired and it just was not the same.   Might have been my attitude, might have been the food.

Dena's is doing OK, I think.  I like that he is open later.  I've heard many make the exact same comments as you, Conan.  I think the food is exactly the same.  It's not totally crazy at lunch anymore.

Mind you, I'm not quite ready to compare Leena's to Shawkats.  I have relatives who already say it is the best in town and that everything else sucks.  I need to go back and check it out a few more times.  It's promising.

It reminds me of a place you might find in Deerborn, like a mini-La Shish, or sort of the Pei Wei to La Shish's PF Chang's, if that makes any sense.  Good way to judge it: a lot of folks of Mediterranean ancestery were eating there.

See first post, it's in the old Panera location at Woodland Hills Mall. (Upper Level next to sears, but you can get to it from outside I believe)

Good recommendation! Long hours...open until mid night Friday and Saturday....11 other nights.

Loved the fresh tabooli...wonderful fresh food! Up there with Mimi's!

Too bad you downtowners and midtowners are way far away....

My wife and I went Saturday evening.  We both ordered dinner platters that included a few choices from the wide variety of sides plus choice of meat.  The food was good.  The hummus was excellent.  The tabouli was okay.  The prices were outrageous though, especially for an order/pay at the counter/get your own refill establishment.  And while I certainly enjoy music in the background, the volume didn't need to be at '11' (for the Spinal Tap fans)...

We shared the same sentiment while leaving - the food was good but next time we would probably spend our money elsewhere.  I will, however, try it again for lunch someday if I am in the area.

Went there and the food was decent wouldn't say it was the best.  I'll have to hit up other Mediterranean and Lebanese food places.  I must say the East Coast has spoiled my taste buds when it comes to certain types of foods around here.  Undecided

Can't remember the name of the place now, but there is a Mediterranean rest. at the NE corner of 31st/Garnett that I went to fairly recently.  It's at the east side of the complex next to Radio Shack.  I'm sure someone will help me out here...
