Delicious Greek in Clifton

Order take out from here pretty often. Love the Greek fries and the chicken pita. My son loves the meatballs from here. The hummus is also very good.

For the length of time we have been patronizing this establishment, I'm happy to say neither the food nor the service has deteriorated. It is still the freshest, healthiest food and even though the wait staff has changed, they still seem very happy to serve you. Great place for family dinner or just a quick lunch salad.

I had the GTM Combo with gyro, lamb, and bifteki. It was excellent. A little too much meat than I can eat in one sitting but a fantastic value. Their tzatziki was really good as well. She had the pastichio which was fantastic. We both really enjoyed that. It was way too much food for us so next time we... More

Everything is like-able at this restaurant. We were a group of 12 people and the owner made a good set up for our group for easy access. We ordered a good variety of food for sharing. Wait staff was knowledgeable. Service was timely and the food was the best part. In the end, there was hardly any room for the... 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.

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 your own wine, which is a... More

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
