Excellent place for lunch near U of U

We went there for lunch and the food they serve is quite authentic and extremely well prepared. I had the Beef/Lamb Gyro with a greek salad and it was really outstanding. Excellent service, too

We went there for lunch as we were in the area. We tried the grilled octopus for the first time and it was delicious. The service was great and the prices were reasonable. We really enjoyed our lunch and would come back for dinner.

We tried several plates. I really liked all except for the Kalimati olives - they are a taste I've never acquired.

I really wanted to like this place....but. Went with a friend for dinner and had high hopes as I live Greek food. Have spent time in the Greek Islands so my taste goes beyond the ubiquitous gyro. We started out dinner with chickpea and eggplant spreads which were excellent. The lamb shanks were tender and flavorful albeit a little too... More

Love love love!! On a two week trip in the West, and this was definitely my favorite find! I have never had genuine Greek food, and I was so happy with the way my first experience went. I ordered the Flight of Gyros, and man, was it delicious!! The gyros are not super large, but delicious. I got the lamb,... More

I love Greek food and this place does an excellent job with great quality food. Took the wife for a quiet diner and was happy to find a nce place with good service. From the Lamb taco, Saganaki, to the pasta dish my wife had the food was all good and the quantities were ample.

When the Greek family who owns one of the largest restaurant supply companies in Utah is on the front patio en masse, it is a pretty good indication this is the place for a wonderful Greek meal. The menu has a broad selection of options ranging from adventurous -- although for some grilled octopus is a reason to come here... More

I saw this rated on trip advisor and after reading reviews and perusing the menu, found out it had been on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. This place was none of the above, its actually a fine Greek restaurant that has excellent food and service. I started with the Greek tacos, shredded lamb with feta and mint. These are some of...

Nice place, but the food was expensive and just OK. I was disappointed. The menu is all a la carte and somewhat confusing. I tried the charred Octopus, two 6" tentacles for $20 with a lemon. My wife's chicken kabobs were only fair, overcooked. No Lamb skewers??? The humus was OK but the roasted eggplant dip did not have a... More
