“Best shawerma”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012

Small cosy restaurant in downtown Bellevue. I had shawerma which was delicious. The serving size for one person was quite large. French fries were good too. Highly recommended if you are looking for mediterranean food.

“Guilty pleasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

Why guilty? Because you reek of garlic the rest of the day. My wife says I'm not allowed to eat there if she's in town.

The Gyros are awesome. Perfectly cooked and cut chunks of meat, great sauces, spicy-seasoned fries...hits the spot every time. The shwarmas are also very good. The place can be a bit too crowded at lunch to find a spot to sit, but the staff is courteous and keeps the tables turning over with quick rollout of orders. If you love Greek and middle Eastern food, this is a great place.

“Good middle eastern food at slightly higher prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2012

Good - The food is really not very greasy and tasty
Chicken kebab plate is my fav. Comes with a soup or salad . Love their soup.
Pretty casual place and has outdoor seating especially good for a sunny afternoon



Bad- Ambience is nothing great. Not a place I could take to impress a date unless she was into food :)

“Great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2012

Small cozy place on Bellevue Way. The menu has lots of variety and offers authentic mediterranean food. The plates are huge and the price you pay for it is quite small. Enjoyed the food, especially their tzatziki sauce and souvlaki chicken while paid around $10 fof the whole meal with drink per person. Will be definitely back.
