We lived in Rochester years ago and went to Zorba's often then but it is now closed, so today we tried Nupa. Compared to Zorba's, which was a "sit-down" place with waitstaff, It seems to be Greek fast food--delicious fast food! My husband had the gyro and said the french fries were supposed to be good. They were both excellent--spicy... More

Took hubby for his birthday! Actually it was he wanted! We both had the gyros sandwich plates. He had rice and salad, me, me fries and salad. I don't know what they do to the fries, but hubby and I fight over them every time! Soooo good! The rice is made so it is very savory! Greek salad...the bomb! The... More

No-frills spot about .8 miles from the Mayo area, about a $4 cab ride if you choose not to walk. Popular with the locals. Excellent healthy and well-prepared Greek food. I had a grilled chicken pita - YUM! - and couldn't resist ordering their fries as they are fresh-cut, and I was not disappointed. Definitely would have re-visited Nupa if... More

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.
