Have eaten here twice now, and both experiences were very positive. Very interesting mix of Thai and Greek. I have had the pad Thai, which was delicious tasting, but a little on the heavy / oily side for me. The hummus on the appetizer list was excellent - smooth & creaming and well seasoned. The Thai curry and brown rice... More

This restaurant is fairly new, opened within the last year and we were anxious to try it. They are located upstairs, with their patio nestled among the trees, it is very cute. The food was average and the prices were a bit expensive for the food quality. If you really like the look of the patio - do lunch instead... More

We have been to this restaurant 5 times in the last two months and love the eclectic menu. We have had salads, Pad Thai, calamari, Lentil Soup, Chicken Pesto Pasta, Smoked Salmon Ravioli, to name a few. Everything was very good to delicious, particularly for the prices. We love the outdoor rooftop seating, but the setting inside is very nice... More

This restaurant was recommended via conversation with someone who lives and works locally. We wanted a nice dinner without the pomp and circumstance. What we found was a charming restaurant that would appeal to families or couples. We dined outside on the terrace which indeed gives you that "tree house" feeling. The diverse menu and wine list are sure to... More

This cosy little restaurant is tugged away from the main road and you may find that having a table is easier than others. The foods are vey good value and mainly Thai food. All the waiters are very charming and helpful

The place to sit at the Tree House Café is outside on the upper deck. Very pleasant atmosphere! The gyros was tasty, and the hummus was smooth, creamy, and served with freshly baked pita bread. Good service, too. We enjoyed our lunch and would definitely go back.

We had read about this place and was very glad we did. It has outdoor seating but the evening we were there the table available did not have a heater so we sat inside. Regardless of seating the food was very good. The only item that I had as issue was with my appetizer. I ordered spring rolls. The waiter... More

We ate here for date night and we were not disappointed. We sat outside to enjoy the beautiful weather. The food was so good. I ordered a pasta dish and my husband ordered a gyro platter. The only disappointment was when the food was gone. We both finished our plates and wanted more! The staff was very attentive and the... More

Wow. Amazing food and amazing service. The best meal we had in America. Owners are cousins of Dametra cafe in the same area and you can see the quality and friendliness is definitely in the family. Highly recommended.
