Really good food. They bring a lovely large pita bread to the table with an olive oil dip that is fantastic. Downtown Gresham as quite a row if good resturant a these days.

Authentic middle eastern food in the heart of downtown Gresham. Served hot, quick and cheap. The hummus is amazing, Swarma chicken and gyros are awesome, combinations plates with a taste of everything should be your choice for your first visit.

We have gone to this restaurant since it opened, and to their family's other restaurant in town for years, and NEVER BEEN DISAPOINTED. I get their Chicken Cabob, (it is never overdone, and it is nicely flavored) and their salad, with cucumbers, feta, tomato's, and olives, (I ask them to leave off the onion's and they do). I do not... More

We love the food at this place. Try Stephen's Beef- can you say YUM? I see no reason to order anything else. The food is so tasty and very fresh. Have never had a bad experience. It makes for some of my favorite take out at a very reasonable price for such quality food. The only reason I gave it... More

We took a little detour on our way back from the Columbia Gorge (historic route 30) to eat lunch. We wanted to try something different and gluten-free, if possible. Nicholas turned out to be an excellent choice. We liked the downtown Gresham location, we liked the gluten-free and other menu choices, as well as the generous portion sizes (yes, the... More

Our group arrived and waited a bit for water and menus. Then a long wait for the order to be taken. Then another extremely long wait for the food which came in three different, spaced out deliveries. Soda orders never did arrive. While the food was very good, it wasn't worth the two hours it took to have a simple... More

This was our first visit to this Lebanese restaurant in Gresham, arriving a little before noon on a Thursday. It was busy so there was a short wait of about 10 minutes. The real wait began once we were seated. However, it is one thing to get slow service when you can see your server just standing around, it is... More

We love Nicholas Restaurant - the one in Gresham as well as the two in Portland. We took some friends to the Gresham restaurant last night and they raved about the food. Three of us ordered the Stephens Beef, a luscious meal of marinated, thinly sliced beef on a bed of saffron jasmine rice with tahziki sauce and diced tomatoes.... More

This is some of the best food I have ever eaten! The service was wonderful and friendly. They were always eager to get our food and get it fast. The food was delicious and I found myself telling my family about it as soon as I got home. The one thing that was a turnoff was that we had a... More

I've been here twice. The first was with a friend, and we had an excellent experience. The food was fresh and everything was tasty. I went again about two weeks later with my family. We ordered similar food as the first time. The flat bread, oils, and hummus for dipping were awesome. Other items not as good.
