Fun place.. Very loud! Good Greek food, but I have had better. Belly Dancer puts on a great show- kids loved it! Entertainment is better than the food.

This restaurant is not just a Greek restaurant... It's a Greek restaurant party. I know it sound crazy but when we where there not only did the staff dance on the tables and serving 'burning' cheeses... The whole restaurant where a big dance party. It was a fun evening! The food? It was good too. Recommend that you at least... More

The food was authentic Greek food! Everything from moussaka to baklava! The Greek chicken with green beans & potatoes was excellent. On sat. Nights at 7pm belly dancers entertain the patrons. Full bar with specialty drinks!!

Extensive menu, really god with people with gluten allergies. Make sure you ask about the napkins!!!!! Not sure what part of Greece they base the food and experience on as there was a mixture of Bangora and Turkish music as well as a belly dancer? However, the atmosphere in the place was great with people dancing on the tables etc.

This is a fun place to go if you enjoy loud music, dancing on tables, great food, great drink, and a belly dancer - that sums it about up. Throughout the evening, a lovely belly dancer entertains the audience, and might even give impromptu classes should you feel inclined to launch yourself into the business yourself. What belly dancing has... More

Other than having an awesome waiter, we really did not have a great experience at all. We made reservations via Open Table and arrived a little early at 6:15pm. They didn't have a record of our reservation nor did they give us credit for it (first time that's ever happened). It was down pouring out so the place was super... More

We sat outside this restaurant because it was such a nice evening and it was a good choice as it seemed rammed inside! However sitting outside does pose a risk of sitting near a smoker, which unfortunately we did! The food was very nice, we were given some pitta bread and hummus as an appetizer which was a nice touch.... More

We really enjoyed the atmosphere at this restaurant. The belly dancing and napkin throwing started at 8:00 (even tho the website said 7:00). It wasn't crowded at 6:30 when we arrived (Tuesday night). Our waiter was very friendly and helpful with menu items. The food was awesome! My husband and I had lamb, my son had the steak and lobster... More
