I don't think I'd had much Greek food before eating here, and I'm sorry for that. Their food is fantastic and delicious. Everything was super hot and fresh (almost too hot!) and tasty. We got two appetizers -- the sausage & pepper mix, and their style of meatballs (very tender and tasty) -- and we shared the Greek fries, which... More

My husband and I went to Long Branch last night. I went onto tripadvisor to search for restaurants. When I saw the high rating for this Greek restaurant, I was very excited!! My husband had the traditional Gyro and Greek fries. Those were very good. The tzatziki sauce was really good. I however had the spanikopita. It was not very... More

So a friend of ours told us about Niko's awhile ago, but we did not have a chance to go until today. Boy, we really should have gone sooner, MUCH sooner.We arrived about 15 minutes before their 4pm dinner opening, but the waiter came and opened the door for us and sat us anyway.. My wife had the Htapodi appetizer,... More

Went to visit family and being from a Greek background decided to go to a Greek restaurant. Very disappointed with the food and service. It was the nastiest Greek food I have ever put in my mouth. I never want to ever go past this place again. I would think twice if thinking about going.

I was quite happy with this restaurant. The food is excellent, the service is good and the atmosphere is very pleasant. The prices are quite reasonable making this place a good deal. We were in town for a Monmouth University basketball game and wanted to get dinner beforehand. We took a look at TripAdvisor and decided this place sounded good.... More

Most people who visit Long Branch have at least heard of, if they haven't eaten at, Greek to Me in Pier Village. You have to go a little beyond the touristy part of town to find Niko's Trapezi. Located in the same strip mall as AMY's at the north end of Long Branch, at first look you might mistake Niko's... More
