very good Greek

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

Great little restaurant with authentic food. Always have a great meal here. Veal Milanese is awesome! Their hummus is wonderful and they even have a special that has avocado and balsamic reduction - very flavorful! Service is top notch. It is BYOB so don't forget the wine. There is a liquor store nearby too.

Better for a basic lunch than dinner. Unadventurous menu and lacking the sophistication to make this happen. For basic GYRO - place is fine.

Went Sunday evening at 6pm. There was a large party finishing and we thank god because they were so noisy we would have wanted to leave. (Acoustics in this restaurant are not very good.) But after the large group left it was very pleasant. Service was good and food came prepared as ordered and was good. We've been here before... More

I am surprised to read all of the positive reviews! The food was OK, but there was 4 of us who only get together twice a year and we do like to chat! Chatting at any decibel was impossible inside and it certainly was not full as "everybody" apparently does not eat there. Since it was a nice day we... More

This restaurant is in my home town. There are not many good, non-Italian, restaurants in my town. This non-Italian restaurant is probably the best in town. We always go with other couples. Everyone eats here, although probably not as frequently as the owners would like. We had a reservation for 4 at a certain time. When we got there, we... More

We love this place. The Salmon dish is my favorite, but the shish kabobs are all top notch. The service is always good, but it's the food that makes this place great. Highly recommended.
