perfection!

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

Boy did this meal hit the spot! Quick service, delicious food and a great sidewalk view on Palo Alto. The owner was very welcoming and they effortlessly accommodated a few special requests. TIP: Try to visit either a bit early or late. It becomes very busy during peak times.

Adequate spot for lunch in downtown, but nothing extraordinary. Typical Greek offerings. Does a brisk business and can be crowded

Small place with a few seats inside and some outside. Nice atmosphere, typical Greek plates slightly different than in other Greek places I have seen. Combo gyro was good (we were in 3 and "good" won 2 by 1 vs "sufficient". Reasonable prices, no great choices anyway.

I ate the chicken souvlaki wrap. It was very tasty and fresh and more than enough for me. It comes without any sides so you may want to add something to it - fries, salad, etc.
