More filling, less bread gyros

Enjoyed the Latvia bread "wrap" approach to a gyro for a slightly less bready and more filling gyro. Bring a jacket and enjoy the outdoor seating.

I thought ordering a Gyro would be a good choice however it was dry, the pita awful and the mystery meat lamb/beef rubbery, even with additional sauce I couldn't chew it, swallow it or enjoy it. I was served by unfriendly man and when I said it was not edible he reached into his cash register without saying anything, looking... More

Lentil Soup, Lamb Salad, and falafel plate was what the three of us had. Plenty of pita bread to go around. Chilled Water is self service. By the way, Palo Alto Municipal water tastes so good! Comes from Hetch Hetchy...better than any water in Silicon Valley. Less than $30 total for dinner. Everything pretty tasty. Perhaps the Lentil Soup wasn't... More

A little corner Greek restaurant close to Garden Court Hotel. Order at the counter and food is brought to you. We sat outside on University Ave and it was lovely. Hummus and pita bread is so fresh you can't get enough of it .Spicy hummus was perfectly seasoned. Our gyros were unique, huge and delicious. You could easily split one.... More

Considering the price, this was one of the best mediterranean restaurants I have been to in the US. Don't miss it if you go to Palo Alto and you like mediterranean food.

Not much to say: not bad and not great. Good for a quick grab. Fairly quick prep time and service is friendly.

Very conveniently located, this restaurant is fast food greek. The menu and food are both very typical and very average. The gyro salad was very good, as were a few of the other dishes. The place is pretty good but not worth going out of your way to find.

It's easy to walk past this place right in the heart of the University Avenue golden mile. The food is great, but not speedy. It has a few tables inside and outside but the atmosphere is quite plain and utilitarian. Locals and students know it. So do local businesses -- midday and early evening there is a steady stream of... More

I highly recommend it! Every bite of my falafel was perfect - the falafel balls crumbled beautifully with the veggies and tahini, and was wrapped in an lovely lavash flatbread that I have not had elsewhere in North America. Also enjoyed the red lentil soup. The restaurant can feel warm inside (perhaps no AC) but do not let that deter... More

OK, I am a Greek food snob (I think the owners are Turkish) and the food is good, but not Greek in all cases, but their lentil soup is amazing!!!!! I go there just for that. I also like the grilled chicken platter with rice and the hummus is delicious too. The place is not fancy and usually cramped. The... More
