Nice restaurant on the pretty part of Main Street in Gresham. The atmosphere and service were both good. They brought a huge pita to share to the table along with olive oil with some herb blend - it was just okay as the pita was very floury (maybe not cooked through) and the herbs in the oil mix were bland....

If you are looking for different choices for gluten free diet their menu is one of the best. Food is always fresh and seasoned perfectly.

We are regulars at the Gresham and Portland locations. However, the Gresham location is VERY SLOW (very few people in the restaurant) with getting the meal out. Our waitress was inattentive, forgot to bring a beverage, and took too long to get us our check. On top of it, a table with 4 adults and 2 young boys allowed these... More

Was taken here by some business associates. I am not an expert in Mid-Eastern food but enjoyed every bite. So....have an adventure and go!

Nicholas has several locations in the Portland area. The one in Gresham is closest to us and we think the best! The food is always tasty with the perfect blend of spices. They source their food locally and use organic wherever possible. My wife doesn't eat wheat so the gluten-free pita bread is a big treat for her. And I... More

We went with a large group. Unfortunately they were busy so the service was very poor. We have been here before when traveling so we are giving them the benefit of the doubt. Otherwise the food is good, plentiful and normally the service is decent.

The server was so unbelievably helpful, we were able to choose a montage of food to try out a variety of dishes. Most of what we ate we really enjoyed. The atmosphere was average but it was a fun place to go have lunch with the husband. Next time, we'll bring the kidlets.

Great little place. The bread in the beginning was very good, the oil very bland, make sure you say yes to hummus! The wait staff is very sporadic and the tables are small. We recieved our salads and hummus on the same large plate. That was weird since usually the salad plate gets cleared before the rest of your food... More
