My husband and I were staying on Oahu for 4 days and looking for affordable options to eat. We purchased a Living Social value of $28 worth of food here for $14 We were both able to get entrees (falafel and gyro) with an appetizer of some great mussels. We paid only a dollar and some change extra. We were... More

I had dinner here tonight. I've been to this restaurant several times in the past. Typically the food is tasty, and the food comes out slowly (you don't usually get served, you have to go pick it up at the counter when they buzz you). However, tonight an incident occurs that causes me to never return, and suggest that no... More

My husband and I came here with my in-laws for dinner. We bought a Groupon before our vacation for $40 worth of food. We still had to pay $15 out of pocket. The food wasn't great. I've had much better Greek fair. The babaganoush was yucky. The salad dressing my in-laws poured all over their salad turned out to be... More

Have had Greek food many times. The food here is a poor imitation. I dont know where to begin but it all was poor at best. From the spanikopita, gyros, salads etc. Best thing was the coke. The food was poorly prepared. Lets leave it at that.

Went for lunch and found the food and service great. Parking can be a problem and because its on a busy intersection could be difficult to access if coming from Downtown. Worth the drive.

My friend and I enjoyed a great meal at the Fat Greek last night. We both had the same thing, Fish Souvlaki with salad. The souvlaki was amazing but the real star was the hot sauce that came with it! It was so tasty I used it as salad dressing! The dishwasher didn't show up so service was a bit... More

This fresh Greek food is amazing, the salad is light and crisp, yet the dressing gives it such a sweet and sour taste that it makes you want more! The gyros are amazing here, I would eat here every day if we lived closer!! The prices are reasonable but the waiting time during dinner is about 30 minutes, so I... More

Not the best Greek food on Oahu. Restaurant is dirty and service is on "island time". Could you wipe the tables now and then? There is no ambiance, and the parking sucks. As for the food, it's mediocre and overpriced. Won't be back again. Back to the Olive Tree in Kahala for me!

The restaurant did reasonably good mediterranean food - stuffed vine leaves, stuffed peppers, humous... But if you come from a big city (or from Greece) you will have easily found better places. But a welcome respite from hawaiian food.

We ate at this restaurant for dinner tonight while staying in the neighborhood. Our group ordered hummus, and gyros, falafel, and tuna combos. Combo comes with Greek fries (parsley, garlic), small Greek salad, and a drink. Everything was delicious. The pita was fresh, and so were the Greek salads. The dressing had a slightly sweet taste which was a nice... More
