First time in Mountain View, meeting up with friends, while we were on vacation to California. 2 families, 4 adults, 2 teens, 2 11 year olds. Very easy to find on a busy street. Had a nice drink in Stephens Green pub 3 doors away beforehand. Parked in multi-storey 1 block away, which is free and remains open late. Staff... More

Was looking for a place to eat and this was one of the few still open when I got around Mountain View. I was pleasantly surprised with a fairly wide selection in the menu, wider than I am used to in Mediterranean restaurants. I got a lamb plate, very good. Service was nothing spectacular but nothing to complain about.

This Mediterranean restauarant offers local authentic Turkish and Greek cuisine that is reasonably prices. Go for the signature Beyti & Moussaka, you will not be disappointed. Great service with outdoor seating. Loved coming to the states because of the international food, now I know why people don't leave the States!

I went there with friend. We ordered lamb and beef gyro plate and moussaka. Lamb was little bit salty, with salad and rice on side, salad pretty good. Moussaka very nice! We like it very much. I love the outdoor table, the only thing is table are too small...and plate too big... We had a nice time there.

Menu selections were comprehensive. Dishes are Authentic. my favorite is the Flat Bread with meat and some special spices; called lahamucun. This is our forth time and the service quality is fantastic. we have tried 60% of the disches so far and can recommend almost all of them to try at least once. Don't forget to order the Turkish Tea... More

Ordered some lamb dish and it was well seasoned and cooked properly. The wait staff is friendly and efficient, also know their own menu very well -- which is great for a Mediterranean food noob like me. The ambience of the restaurant is okay with typical restaurant fixtures but I thought the lighting could be better because the fluorescent lights... More

I adore the cinnamon-rice and veggies. Everything here tastes great, and is cooked well. It is all a bit glistening and heavy, but not egregiously so. Check about the meat to veggie balance of specific dishes, some of them are pretty much vegetable free, but you might not notice that on the menu. Super sage and mint tea.
