“Spectacular!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

Thanks to TripAdvisor, we found this #1 rated restaurant when we were in Manassas for a family event. Fabulous traditional Greek food in a cozy atmosphere with friendly, small town customer service. Arriving at 2:30pm, this was our first meal of the day and we were really hungry. We had a cross between lunch and dinner. We ordered the saganaki, which is flambéed kaseri cheese as an appetizer. We extinguished the flame with freshly squeezed lemon juice and ate the cheese atop PERFECT hot pita triangles. We shared the combination appetizer consisting of tzatziki, meliganosalta (baba ganoush), taramasalata (red caviar w/ olive oil) - again with the most delicious hot grilled pita. Husband had the lentil soup. I had the Taste of Greece – combination of mousaka, pastitsio & spanakopita. It was a lot of food so I happily had some pastitsio to take home. Everything we ordered was delicious and we look forward to returning when in the area again, but the item that will have us fastback another "swing-by" was the Galaktoboureko - creamy baked custard and filo dough drenched in lemon & orange infused syrup. (Baked to order, allow 10 minutes) - OMG. Worth a visit just for this. Trust me.

“Wonderful hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014 via mobile

Traditional Greek. Hospitality is alive and well in this tiny place in a corner of Manassas, VA. The food was delicious, atmosphere comfortable and service was attentive. We asked about wines and the owner promised to have us try some on our next visit, we will absolutely be back with friends.

“Great service and fresh food! Lots for VEGETARIANS!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

I have been here a few times and each time, despite the long wait, we have had a delicious meal and been treated like guests in someones private home--until they handed us the bill, of course! The menue is just what you would expect to find in a Greek restauant with many options for vegetarians. Service is always with a smile--you don't feel rushed or hurried in any way. Go and enjoy!

“authentic greek food, cozy atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

We tried mousaka, greek salad,calamari (tomato sauce for dipping too small), grilled ground beef patty, all great. All tasted authentic, service was great. Baklava not served with honey as we had read on a previous review but a sugar syrup. We would have preferred the baklava to have been warmed in the oven as it was ice cold from the fridge but it tasted great! There was one disturbing issue which will prevent me from returning....the floors, a beautiful laminate wood was so slippery I could not get up to use the restroom and needed help exiting. My guest wore hiking boots and slipped around on them as well. We were not sure if it was the laminate or a greasy coating from dirty mop water but it was treacherous! Also, the slate entrance out front was wet from rain and combined with the incline was slippery as well. These flooring choices were not well thought out for a restaurant. Too bad.
