“Finally!!! Fantastic, authentic Greek cuisine!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

My sister and found out about this gem through the website Pinterest. We've been salivating over their online menu for weeks and began planning a day to Mechanicsburg (we live over an hour away). Our expectations were extremely high as we finally were able to go today, and we were not let down. We were a little nervous at first since the parking lot and dining room was full, especially since we had two small children with us. But everything was perfect! The service was professional and fast. The food was excellent. By far the best gyros and spanakopita I have EVER tasted. Please stop by this amazing restaurant and give them your service, you will not be disappointed. If I lived closer I would be there every week, but once a month will have to do.

“Amazing food... New favorite restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013 via mobile

So glad they opened this restaurant. The food is always fresh and hot, and so tasteful. Have had spanikopita, gyros, moussaka, pististio, lamb, salads... All delicious! Outdoor eating area in the warmer months is great to sit at and enjoy wine with friends while waiting for our meals. It is byob...the staff is so friendly and accommodating... And it is family owned. The owners couldn't be nicer.

Prices are not bad at all, especially considering it's homemade and when compared to the Greek festival. Take out is great and well packaged.

Hellenic Kouzina is a must if you haven't been yet!

“Very Good Greek Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

My husband and I have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. This area needed a place where one could get good greek food. The food is exceptional, the baklava cheesecake to die for; but, as others have noted, the counter service is not the way to go, thus the reason for the four star rating. It would be a much more pleasant dining experience if it were table service rather than having to go to the counter to place one's order. The owners should seriously rethink this. Nonetheless, give this place a try for the quality of the food.

“You Have Arrived At Flavor Town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

This restaurant is not near us, but the trip was well worth it as the title of this review indicates.

We had a party of three on Saturday night and we all got different items so we all did a little tasting of different dishes. The food is freshly made, tastes fantastic and plentiful, so much so that none of us had any room for the deserts that looked so tempting. All of us really loved the salad with the house dressing. I think we will have to make a trip for just deserts.

The staff is very friendly and fantastic at explaining about the various dishes, especially if your lucky enough to be talking with a young lady that goes by Joe. This is not a restaurant that you sit down and get waited on and you also pick your own table. You place your order and pay for it and are given a pager that goes off when your food is ready at the pick up location. If they are not real busy they will bring the food to your table.

We will definitely be back. I would recommend reviewing the menu on the restaurants website before you go there so you are not overwhelmed when standing there looking at the menu, deserts and staff working in the open kitchen.
