Absolutely great experience. Our meal was delicious. The Gyro's were the best. Have eaten them all over the U.S. Would love to visit again.

Went here in a party of six on a Sunday. We had made reservations, but they did not seem to know about that. It was not that crowded, so no problem. We shared the appetizers, most of which i would say were so-so. The entrees were also a mixed bag. My daughter and I had two different lamb dishes. In... More

The food here is very good. I've dined at many Greek restaurants including the better ones in Chicago and several in Greece. I had the Greek Sampler and my wife enjoyed the Cabbage Rolls. Both dishes were great. This isn't a quaint, romantic spot-particularly on the weekends, but the food is great and the atmosphere is lively and fun. If... More

Not bad, not great. We had to eat in the hot bar area because the other part of the restaurant was being set up for the Saturday evening show. Service was slow once your order was taken. Our food was good. We'll give it another try on another day or make reservations to watch the show & eat.

The restaurant won't win any points for its location - it's in the middle of a strip mall, however it more than makes up for it with the quality of its food, great atmosphere, friendly, knowledgeable servers, and extensive menu, not to mention the live entertainment on the weekends. I avoid the "trendy" overcrowded and overpriced restaurants (usually with mediocre... More

Fresh high quality food. Service can be slow during the weekend evenings when they have the live music. belly dancing and plate throwing. But it's worth it for the experience.

Every visit food has been wonderful. Saturday's are a bonus with the entertainment of belly dancing and plate breaking. Be sure to make reservations if going on a Saturday.

For great Greek food in The Woodlands/Spring area this cannot be beat. Expect crowds, but there are plenty of tables, including outdoor tables for cooler weather. Great hummus and pita appetizer. We had souvlaki kebabs, chicken and lamb. Both were very well prepared and presented. The service is first class, and the restaurant is clean and well decorated. Who would... More

This place has real charm. We decided to try this Greek restaurant for my husbands birthday. The appetizers we great. Gyros were good and there is live music Friday and Saturday nights. My kids loved the entertainment.

Clean surroundings, excellent service and great food. Ownership that actually cares about their customers... Always have the #8 for lunch ..Gyro and Greek Salad. Priced right. Why can't the other restaurants follow this model??
