Wonderful Middle Eastern Food

We frequently eat dinner at Nicholas. We have several preferences: lamb kabab and Greek Salad. Our friends have tried many other dishes and enjoyed them. Service is friendly. Be aware that at busy dinner times you may have to sip your favorite beverage for a few minutes while they prepare your food.

Excellent food, courteous and joyful staff, they are always so sweet and attentive. Hardly ever a wait at their Gresham location. If you love Lebanese food, their recipes are spot on

Love the saffron rice and their pita bread, plus many great dishes to choose from including the Stephen's Beef.

Excellent Mediterranean food. We had gyros, spanakopita, and salad. They serve very large portions. They also brought a large flat bread and put it on a pedestal on the table. There is street parking available and there is also a free public lot around the corner from the restaurant.

I had never tried Lebanese before and surprisingly I liked it. The service was good, staff friendly and responsive and the food good. Not the most comfortable as it feels a bit too crowded with the seating but all in all a better than average experience.

Decided to have dinner here to see why it is rated #1 in the area. The atmosphere could need a little work, maybe some rugs or carpet over the tile flooring to give it a better feel. Service seemed a bit slow for having four servers and only five occupied tables. When it came to the food though, wow! As... More

We started the new year out in a perfect way by having an early Saturday night dinner at Nicholas Restaurant in Gresham. This is the second time I have been here and it will be a regular spot for me to dine and also take my out of town guests when we want something extra special. Josh, our waiter was... More

The food has been consistantly good here, butbthe place is getting dirty and run down. If you don't mind the decor and the wait, I reccomend the vegi mezza. The meat mezza is the same but they charge two more dollars for a tube of tasteless meat. They best part of dining here is the large fresh baked pita bread... More

As with many of the buildings in the city of Gresham they're getting older inside and out and aren't as beautiful as their first glory days, however for me if the building is not kept well then what of the things inside. Food was quite good, service was very good, atmosphere nice, presentation was a just little flat but it... More
