“Shockingly AMAZING!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013 via mobile

We were a little hesitant when pulling up. We had the most incredible food ever at a Greek Restraunt. The lamb shank was wow incredible! I had the eggplant moussaka and it was awesome! Seems like two brothers own it and take amazing pride in their food and the history of their family. Would highly recommend this place. We were at the Westin $7.00 cab ride.

“Greek near LAX”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

i went to lunch at this greek place right next to lax , and it is one of the best authentic greek places on the westside. Like most good hole in the wall places, the food was great and the decor was so so. But the lamb gyro sandwhich is great. Highly recommended if your looking for a good gyro.

“Good greek close to LAX.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

Looking for an ethnic restaurant near our hotel at the Los Angeles International airport, we found the reviews for Aliki's Taverna and decided to try it. What a good idea that turned out to be! It was only a few minutes away and there is parking. A scattering of Greek posters make up the decor, but we came for food. It got quite busy while we were there, and is understaffed, but the help hustle.The menu is extensive and prices are reasonable. We ordered the spanakopita appetizer and were a bit disappointed. Though tasty, the pastry was not the light filo we expected. We both had gyro plates, a substantial serving of tasty lamb/beef gyro meat with tzatziki and pita, an accompanying salad, and nicely flavored rice. It was very good and made the short trip well worthwhile. Their lemonade was very good. As we were leaving, I glanced at some lamb shank plates waiting for delivery; they looked very good..

“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013 via mobile

The gyro was excellent. The flavors were wonderful and you can tell they use quality ingredients.

The decor could use some work, but if you there to eat its not a problem.
