went with a friend and enjoyed lamb shish kabob over basmati rice. First trip to Downtown San Carlos and liked it. Lots of businesses and great to walk off that good Greek dinner.

I like the lamb wrap there. Quite tasty and fairly priced. Outdoor seating too. A good place to relax and have a bite. Service is pretty quick.

Small space indoors with a few sidewalk tables. Service is always positive and nice to deal with. Even when picking up take out I found the person very pleasant. The food is... More

We were walking along laurel St, looking for a good place to eat, we tried this restaurant which was more casual than the others. I ordered the Gyros ($9) which came with the lemon chicken rice soup and chips and it was really good. The hubby ordered the lamb kabob which was also good but he felt it was overpriced... More

Not to mention great wine. The owner/server was warm and friendly. The decor was warm and inviting. The food was excellent. One of the best falafel appetizers we've ever had. One of our favourite dinners of the trip. Reasonably priced and a gem.
