Friendly, prompt service, local beer, good food. I ordered the falafel hummus wrap and greek potatoes. It wasn't a "I need to come back and bring all my friends!" kind of meal but more of a "Yeah, I'd come back some time" sort of experience. Menu items seemed just a tiny bit overpriced.

Had large family visiting Buffalo. Our meal satisfied everyone's diets and preferences. Sample platters are recommended as everyone was able to try new things. Lamb dishes were very good, as were wraps, salads. Waitress was excellent! Suggested different beers to try with everyone satisfied with them. Accommodated our requests except they said they were out of Turkish coffee when we... More

been here a handful of times and every time I am impressed. have not had a bad meal. hummus is the best. the sandwiches are all delicious as the combinations and ingredients are fresh and well coordinated. dinners I assume would be the same. plenty of seating either at tables or at the bar. also have a rear event room....

After reading the poor reviews regarding service I took a chance because I really wanted a Falafel sandwich and was desperate! Let me start by saying that I am a true foodie and am very critical of food establishments. The service was OUTSTANDING! Now I must say that I did not encounter the owner but the hostess and waitress were... More

In Buffalo you have an overwhelming selection of Greek and Mediterranian food choice. I also go to Rochester a lot where there are some unbeatable spots. The Towne, Family Tree, The Wherle, Athens, Mythos, Acropolis, Alladins. All of these with the exception of Alladins are easy consistantly great food that is fresh and well prepared. So we thought we'd try... More

After my lunch at this place with a business colleague, we had the unpleasant experience of meeting the unbelievably rude owner, whom our waiter had wrily described as "fiery." Hah! We had complained about the unannounced $2 upcharge for a teensy dish of sauce for our falafel sandwiches (which I would have thought would have already included sauce), and told... More

We stopped here a a whim as we drove past. Some of the best Mediterranean food I've ever had. I grew up in an area where I had Greek and Lebanese often. The food here reminded me of home. Started the meal with the Traditional Maza , a sampler platter that was enough for four people. Our main dishes were... More
