Biggest pita ever. Great middle Eastern food at great prices.

If your a hummus and pita lover this is the place for you. When your seated they bring a huge two foot in diameter warm pita and dip. You have to order the hummus but it's worth it. Their falafel is scrumptious by themselves or in a wrap. Go here you won't be disappointed.

We really like this food! Love the fresh flat bread with seasoned oil for dipping, the skewers are yummy, and my favorite saffron rice with chicken and tomatoes with their amazing cucumber dip! Different is fun! Try this place in Downtown Gresham!

I was directed to this neighborhood cafe as a low budget priced restaurant, but its more like middle to high priced. Not very well decorated but the food is excellent, fresh ingredients and served hot from the kitchen. Large servings, enough to share.

It's been 20 years since I was last seen in Gresham. This place wasn't here. We really didn't know what to order, it all looked great. A older man sitting alone was willing to recommend I order the lamb platter and I obliged. The pita/naan bread was huge and so yummy. The dipping sauce was awesome. The main dish. Plenty... More

My husband and I have been traveling around Oregon for the last 2 weeks and this is hands down the BEST place we have eaten. Starting with the flat bread and dipping sauce, to the salad with the most delicious Greek dressing, to the main course. I had the salmon kabob, which was seasoned and cooked to perfection. My husband... More

Excellent food. The jasmine rice is fantastic. Such a quaint little place in downtown to stop for dinner. It's the best Mediterranean I've had in Portland metro.

Stopped here for lunch after visiting the Vista House! Amazing Greek food! They brought us a HUGE homemade pita to share! I could have made a meal just on that! I got the chicken shwarma pita. My mom got the chicken shwarma plate that had the best jasmine saffron rice I have ever eaten. Shared rice pudding for dessert! Delish!!... More

My wife and I came home from the beach. It was hot and we didn't want to cook. We called Nicholas' and placed an order to be picked up. Our food was ready when we got there and it was excellent. My wife had the Beef Shawarma sandwich and she loved it. I had the Lamb Gyros. I loved it... More
