OK it was a nice place. We ordered the Mousaka, the gyros, the chicken kabob sandwich and the Greek Lasagna (can't remember what it's called). We were a big group and the place was very busy but we got our food in decent time. The chicken kabob sandwich was good and the pita bread was amazing. The mousaka had a... More

Always a good meal here. The prices have gone up quite a bit. The potatoes are still one of my favs. Had Falaffel today- it was just Ok not great. The decor is still a little primitive but you go there for the great food not service or decor. A classic L.A Place

Wow, this place is amazing! I absolutely love this place! I brought my dog since their outside seating is dog friendly. Only bad thing was there were a few bees that kept buzzing around us and I was afraid of getting stung. Other than that, I love coming here! Their gyro sandwich is the best in town! Probably the best... More

Everytime I'm in LA, I MUST come to Papa Cristo's. Their Greek food is so authentic and DELICIOUS! I love it because I can eat and shop for my mediterranean cuisine ingredients at their little store. Everything is made from scatch. They make the BEST greek salad dressings, main dishes and drinks. Papa Cristo is always there, he's a cute... More

Near Downtown L.A. and U.S.C. campus, authentic Greek food. This informal, authentic Greek restaurant is a throwback to the variety of quaint, ethnic dining that used to be so plentiful in L.A.

Papa Christo's is half grocery store half restaurant. The seating area does not have much ambience but you are there for the food. You go to the counter and order and the food is brought to you. I have been coming here for over 10 years and the consistency of the dishes is always the same, good portions and flavorful... More

We love Papa Cristos for their freshly prepared and delicious food. All menu items are great! The deli carries great products. I love the organic olive oil I purchased there recently. A few times a day they bring out fresh whole wheat and regular french baguettes - BEST in town! I love eating it right from the bag with some... More

My husband and I have been searching for a good Greed restaurant for a long time. We usually only go to the Mad Greek on our way to Las Vegas. We almost drove 100 miles to fill our craving, but decided to take a chance on Paps Cristo's ~ What an amazing surpise! We ordered the Gyro plate and wow... More

All of the dishes here are delicious! My favorites are the dolmas, falafel, & spanakatopia- awesome! And the baklava is heavenly!!! The staff here are welcoming and the owner is very gracious & makes sure you are satisfied. There is valet parking as the parking is scarce. Overall, the best Greek food I've had in LA!!!
