7437 River Street Ada, Michigan 49301
If you haven't made the drive to Ada to discover one of the area's best kept secrets, Michigan's only Turkish restaurant, you certainly don't know what you're missing. A spacious, modern dining area and large circular sports bar with an inviting atmosphere accented by Turkish pillows in the booths and the art on the walls gives a vibe of a big city establishment. An outdoor patio provides the perfect relaxation spot for a leisurely afternoon or evening and features views of the new Ada Village, Legacy Park and Grand River.
Zeytin has hit its mark with online raves about its shish kebab, made with fresh meats such as lamb, beef, and chicken; all marinated at least eight hours before serving. Priding itself on offering a full menu, featuring sixteen different appetizers and twenty-two entrees, most of the items are made in-house from scratch with fresh ingredients. Quite an accomplishment as you look over the menu, which features a variety of items such as Grilled Chicken Chops, Lamb Shank, Stuffed Eggplant, Halibut, Flambe Cheese [Saganaki], and Iskender. The Baklava is to die for, the Sutlac [rice pudding)is heavenly], and the Cream Caramel is delightfully rich.
