Good is fresh and excellent. Served quickly for lunch crowd. Excellent gyro meat and grilled chicken. The tiziki sauce is second to none and they even have lemon and cucumber in the water. If you are in Rochester you won't be disappointed.

We had been looking forward to this after driving for 9 hours. Everything was fresh and awesome...not the biggest portions but it filled us well enough. I especially enjoyed my Muffaleto sandwich - the spicy olive tampanade was perfect and the bread was nice and chewy (the good kind of chewy!) My wife loved her falafel salad and my kids... More

My family and I ate gyros and fries for lunch inside this restaurant. The dining area is not very big, but very nice, clean, and comfortable. They were playing Greek music, which I really enjoyed. The gyros were absolutely amazing, the best I had ever had: it had a LOT of gyro meat (the most I had ever seen in... More

If we want take out we come here; if we want to eat-in we go to their Crossroads place. Dependably high quality Greek food; it is one of our favorite quick meals in Rochester. The staples...pita, hummus, gyros, avgolemono soup and Greek salad are yummy, fresh and obviously homemade. Other favorites are the spicy feta and the chicken pita lunch...beautifully... More

We are gluten free, and trying to find a fast food restaurant is a challenge. We both ordered Falafel salads and were pleasantly surprised at the high quality ingredients in the salad and the exceptional dressings. The servings were very generous. The pita sandwiches coming out were large and filled with good veggies. We got there a little after eleven... More

Nupa never fails to deliver a very tasty meal. The services is great and friendly too. The food is very flavorful! I especially love "Alexi's Saganaki" and the "Spicy Chicken Floretta." It seems strange to me that this great Greek place serves french fries, but they do and they are some of the best fries ever. Love Nupa!!!

I LOVE the falafel salad and have a real problem ordering anything else. Try it! It comes with good greens, tasty olives, a nice amount of feta an cute little tomatoes.

Got the falafel in pita bread. Had a lot of outside fried stuff, not much chickpea mix on the inside. Overly crispy. Wasn't that impressed. Rice is gross. Has a strange taste to it and was soggy. Pita bread and hummus was all right as well, but not that great. I wouldn't order here again. I've had better falafel at... More

I accidentally found this place and stumbled inside. To my surprise, the food blew me away. If you read my other reviews, I'm hardly blown away. The salads and wraps are amazingly fresh and tasty. I dream of nights I can come back here. I even came here twice in one day before! I turned on my boyfriend to this... More

The food has a lot of feta cheese and kalamata olives, but ins't anything special. It probably is healthier than McDonalds but seems like a lot of fried food.
