“Hidden Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2012

It's nondescript, easy to miss, order at the counter, they do deliver the food to the table, very casual, usually crowded, fast turn over of tables. But, the important thing- the food is great!!! The portions are large, tasty and very authentic. When we are in the area, we continue to bypass the many upscale fancy restaurants and simply enjoy good food.

“Good place for kebabs”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2011 via mobile

It is a mediterranean fast-food like place. If you want to taste authentic, go across the street

“Garlicky!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2011 via mobile

Very busy, very tiny place but fast, good service. I had the chicken kabob salad. The chicken was absolutely perfect, I wish there had been a few more chunks, the dressing was fab but slightly overdressed, the only thing I would have changed or added in this case, is I wished it would have had cucumbers and Greek olives in the salad. Also for $10 it wasn't a very big salad. I had garlic breath all day and evening.

“Good food, Good service, Casual atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2011

I tried this once and will return again to try more. I ordered take-out and the food was good and service was fairly quick considering it was quite busy for Saturday lunch. The lamb sandwich was delicious (not as flavorful as a kebab, of course) and the Schawarma was also very good and juicy - I liked it even better.

“Friendly, Fast & Fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2011

I probably eat here at least every 2 weeks for either lunch or dinner. High quality food for good prices. Try the chicken souvalki salad, nice grilled marinated chicken breast pieces on a salad with olives, feta etc. The lentil soup is yummy and light. Even their french fries have something special. From gyros to shwarma, you can't go wrong. Staff is welcoming and competent. Small amount of tables but they do take out. Its a Bellevue gem!
