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

For as foodie a city as Portland is many of it's suburbs are culinary oases. Gresham has for decades been the sort of place that a franchisee just salivates about. Recently though the city has shaken up it's downtown core and made it walk friendly and clearly appealing to restaurateurs thinking outside the Outback mould. One local chain of Middle... More

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
