For many diners, the lack of a liquor license is a deal-breaker. That proclivity can relegate most Middle Eastern spots to a lunchtime treat rather than an evening pleasure. Farmington Hills’ 2Booli addresses the problem with not only a full bar but a happy hour that lasts all evening long, Monday through Friday. Draughts are $2.50, margaritas and martinis are $4, and featured wines of the week are also about $4, or $12-$15 a bottle. As the name makes clear, the restaurant has aspirations to address several cultures around the Mediterranean, rather than just the Lebanon from which the owners’ parents emigrated. Bruschetta, polenta, fritto misto, clam linguine, and a meatball sub share the menu with tabbouleh and falafel.
Middle Eastern dishes served in a large, open, two-tiered dining room. Two locations.
The menu is short but covers the usual bases — at prices well cheaper than those of the Lebanese restaurants a few miles further west in Dearborn. The highest priced entrée is $12, and that will get you three skewers of meat plus your rice, pickles and salad. Most entrées are $6 or $7 — for dishes that cost $12-$15 at other places. Sandwiches run $3.25-$3.99.
Fresh raw juices, daily vegetarian soups and specials, and fresh, warm bread.
Affordable wine and tasty traditional lamb at this Middle Eastern/Egyptian restaurant.
Comfort food, Lebanese-style. Potato kibbeh and a Maza appetizer plate are the specialties. We feature many desserts and rosewater-infused lemonade.
Inexpensive Lebanese featuring huge portions and friendly service. Two of the biggest bargains are the Thyme pie and the dinner-for-two specials.
"A warm and inviting place specializing in fair-trade, organic coffee and espresso. Our foods range from Hummus to traditional corned beef sandwiches to yummy desserts, and even organic fruit. Everything is made fresh to order and soups are created daily from scratch."

Middle Eastern Cuisine at an affordable price is what Harmonie Garden has to offer, and they have the perfect location to do it- nearby the campus of Wayne State University. 

The bare tables and paper napkins belie the relative stylishness of the setting, and the huge menu meanders through steaks and seafood to Italian and Greek dishes before it gets to its gastronomic raison d’etre — specialties from Lebanon, with hefty portions averaging around $12, including soup and salad, as well as warm fluffy pita baked on the premises. Among 40 starters and salads are lamb sausage, kibbeh balls, labneeh with garlic, saganaki (opa!) and even chicken tenders and cheese sticks. Most of the entrées (the Lebanese ones including various kebabs, kibbeh, grape leaves and a gyro platter) come with an ample helping of vermicelli-enlivened rice doused with tomato sauce. Expect serviceable wines and bottles of Heineken. If you aren't staring down a doggie bag when before dessert, Ike's has a variety of cakes, pies and baklava.
American-Middle Eastern cafe. Featuring rolled-up sandwiches, homemade potato chips and the Maurice salad.
An all-american restaurant also offering Middle Eastern and Asian cuisine. Romantic and technologically inclined atmosphere. Enjoy burgers, wraps, dinner entrees and the best smoothies in town.
La Saj’s menu covers the usual suspects in the Lebanese kitchen. The appetizer sampler ($23.95), which can easily satisfy four, includes a silky hummus, suitably smoky baba ghanoush, vegetarian or meat-stuffed grape leaves, fried kibbeh stuffed with meat, onions and pine nuts, falafel, labneh (house-made yogurt), a fresh but a bit drippy tabbouleh, and cheese and vegetables. Unlike many of its competitors, La Saj wisely serves the meza on separate small plates instead of a large platter where the ingredients tend to run into one another. With warm puffy pita rounds and their accompanying sharp garlic sauce, the sampler makes for a splendid start to the meal. Mains average around $14, with lamb preparations, such as grilled lamb steak kastalata, at the high end of the price continuum. As with most Middle Eastern spots, La Saj is vegetarian-friendly. One of the best bets is madjara, an earthy mélange of lentils and cracked wheat. The Awadas are also children-friendly, offering gastronomically challenged youngsters all-American chicken tenders and even hamburgers. The small wine list, beginning at $20 for a decent Chateau St. Michelle Riesling, covers most price levels. The fact that the list is disproportionately red (including some from Lebanon) comes as no surprise, since, in general, the assertively seasoned Middle Eastern cuisine can overwhelm whites.
