“You must go here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

This restaurant has it all---fantastic and interesting food, great service (including helping me find different places on a map), wonderful atmosphere. I walked there from OU campus so not sure about the parking, but it was a nice walk. Don't miss it.

“Average in a different setting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

The food is good but a little pricey.
The bread is good and salads.
Service was a little slow and out of it.
Desert was burnt.

“Authenticity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

The title says it all. It is an authentic middle easter/greek restaurant in a small town in Ohio which is usually hard to come by in small towns. It is a fancy restaurant and the decor is pretty neat. The waiters do need to be a little politer and more attentive but the food does justice to the prices.

“Not Worth the Cashish!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

Extremely over-priced, by far the greasiest Spanakopita I have ever had & cost $17!! Falafel was over-cooked & therefore dried out, & the Hummus was just average. The quality of food was WAY below what I expected for the price.

“One of the best in Athens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

This is a great place to eat in Athens. The lamb is particularly delicious and the hummus is also amazing. The restaurant itself has a great atmosphere and the service was great. However, it is not the cheapest, but is definitely worth the money.
