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 hands-down makes the best shawarma in the entire Metro Detroit area. It's a tiny restaurant... 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 is very limited but comfortable seating. The 4 of us ordered different dishes, and all... 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 is that he loves the meat ones and they always run out so they are... More

Wow! Had their hommous at a party, went the next day to buy some. Also had two entrees, chicken schwarma and beef with veg. ENORMOUS portions, great food. Restaurant is very small (six tables and a counter that seats five or six) but immaculate and friendly. VERY busy at lunch time, but service moves quickly. Might call ahead for takeaway.Prices...

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 had was fresh homemade pita and a rotisserie for their shawarma. I'm there two to... 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 you won't be disappointed. As a plus, a large hummus usually means we get a... 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 had. Amazing! Service-wise, the two men working were extremely friendly and welcoming.

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.
