Keep coming back!

We live in Rochester and this restaurant is one that we keep coming back to. They even have gluten free pita bread! They use great ingredients so the food is always top notch! This is one place not to be missed.

We have been back to Nupa several times and it looks like a local favorite. We see a lot of people pick up food to go after work. The ingredients look fresh and not over cooked . The calamari salad was very delicious.

Very friendly server took our counter order, but he was tremendously overwhelmed manning the counter alone. The service was so slow they offered us a dessert free. Food is terrific, but perhaps they need to estimate the crowd better or create more efficiency in the kitchen. Caprese floretas are our favorite snack. Order is small. Not a meal.

We love this restaurant and is becoming a must go to place everytime we visit Rochester. Their food is always very fresh, seasonings and sauces are made to perfection, Everything we have ordered there so far has been very good. We made a point to try all the Greek places in Rochester we could find so far and we have... More

Ok - first things first. This is a pretty basic road-side diner - it's right off a main road but that means it's easy to get to and easy to park. The main business for this place seems to be takeout, and whilst I was there plenty of people were ordering and collecting so they are obviously doing something right.... More

I swear this place should be a sit town the food-to-go is that good! This place is the best Greek in tasted so far in the mid-west! I got the gyro lunch w rice. Hubs got the same with fries. Can't go wrong with either side. The lamb is full of flavor! Wonderful!

My family went to Nupa for a quick meal on a Friday night after a recommendation from a friend. Great choice. It is a take-out and counter service Greek restaurant specializing in gyros, kabobs, falafel, etc. We ate in the restaurant, and from ordering to receiving our food was only about 10 minutes. The food was great, although a little... More

I dined at the location on Crossroads Drive on the south side of Rochester (1 of 2 in town), location is in a busy strip mall with good parking. The resturant has high ceilings and is a little noisy when busy. Order at the counter (they do have menus that you can take and sit down with and study if... More

Terrific food at reasonable prices. Service is fast, pleasant and willing to help you make choices. The falafel platter included a Greek salad and rice and was absolutely fabulous!! Very convenient location, but definitely worth going out of your way. A haven from all the chain restaurants .
