Outside dining a big plus!

It is relatively quiet compared to some outside dining spots. The portions are large, especially the small salads. They are enough for 2 or 3. The octopus appetizer is $14, but well worth it, if you love octopus, as I do. The souvlaki;s are good and ample, their pita bread is excellent. You bring... read more

Everything here is great! The location is convenient but parking is sometimes a hassle. The service is quick and helpful. And best of all the food is fantastic and the servings are very generous.

The food here is good. I grew up eating Greek food and the food here is pretty good. I had the lamb chops which were done to my specifications medium rare and my with had the mousaka. Although they were not as good as at home I would still recommend them both. Service was also good and very attentive.

We only go on weekdays and order something from the lunch specials. After trying a few different entrees the first few visits we (adults) always order the salmon now. It is consistently delicious. The fries are perfectly cooked too. I ordered the pita pizza for the kids the past 2 visits & it was very good. We've never had a... More

This restaurant features a fabulous menu with all fresh made to order authentic dishes. We especially love ordering all of the fish dishes because they are swimming in the morning and fresh on your plate for dinner. The owner, Muri, is always present and personable and goes above and beyond to make sure each and every guest is satisfied. We... More

Good, huge size gyros will give you garlic breath, bit leave your wallet full. Go for lunch for the gyro specials which are still huge but cheaper. They have a healthy amount of meat and tons of tzatsiki sauce and will give toy garlic breath but are delicious. The staff is a bit surly, but quick and fairly attentive.

This is a place my wife and I enjoy going to every few months, especially when the weather is pleasant. You can eat out doors. It is BYO (wine store is in walking distance) and the staff is always pleasant. The food is excellent and reasonably priced. We always leave with doggy bags so we find it has great value.... More

Ordered some take out last night - 2 small greek salads with grilled chicken and an order of grape leaves. The total for my order was $41 which I thought was pretty steep considering the salads were average size and had hardly any feta cheese on them. Atmosphere is nice, I like that you can sit outside. Parking is atrocious... More

This is a great choice for outdoor dining on a gorgeous summer evening. It's location at the center of a quite mall adds to the ambience, bushes and trees in the interior perimeter of the mall and act as a barrier from the traffic on nearby route 46 largely drowns out the chatter and street noises. Very relaxing! This place... More
