Great neighborhood eatery

I love going here with my kids who are vegetarian and one who is a carnivore, because we each can have something. The kitchen is open so you can see everything that is going on, and I love that. I always get the baby grilled octopus and my daughters get the salad with the grilled vegetables. Its... read more

Located in the center of Livingston. A very extensive menu featuring Greek food with an extensive choice of appetizers and main dishes. We prefer the fish dishes which have never disappointed. Wait staff is helpful in making suggestions. BYOB.

I always come here for the spanakopita and Greek salad lunch special it's so good! Also the hummus and pita is really good. Have also ordered delivery and it's very fast and the food comes warm. Definitely recommend.

Went here with another couple on a rainy Sat. night. Place was crowded but not so noisy that we could not hear each other. Ambience was nice, not fancy but trendy. Food was just average. I had a grilled seafood dish with rice but the octopus was fatty and the calamari was rather tough vs. this same dish at other... More

I frequently go to this restaurant. The atmosphere is great. During the summer time I usually prefer to sit outside on a balcony if it's not too hot. The food selection and presentation is great, not to mention pretty healthy. They cook on premises. The prices are moderate And please, don't forget BYOB Bon Appetit!

It's a little odd to find a restaurant on the second floor of a shopping strip. But inside, it's nice and there's a large outdoor patio overlooking a busy intersection. Nonetheless, the food is good, ingredients seem fresh, portions are ample. Can't really put my finger on why I just don't get excited about this place. It's a nice menu... More

Seating is comfortable both indoors and out and food is good. Love their tzatziki! Service is average. All in all we return time and time again for Greek.

Nice leisurely Saturday evening dinner with friends. Good service to complement a varied menu. Apps were very good and most entrees were good as well. Surprisingly, my lamb kebab was a miss- the meat was tough and over- cooked. I will go back but certainly make another selection. Dining on the outside terrace during warmer months is lovely!! And we... More

I have been here a couple times for lunch and have been happy with my experiences. The lunch menu is a good value and has a nice variety of authentic Greek food . The atmosphere is relaxing, especially in the nicer weather when outdoor seating is available. The staff is pleasant and prompt. A good choice when you're looking for... More

Four of us needed a change from Italian, Chinese, Japanese, American, etc... We decided that Greek food would be a nice change and with a name like THAVMA it would have to be good. Actually it was a heck of a lot better than good. We were told that the portions were large and soup or salad came with the... More
