So we watched this lady handle damn near everything behind the counter with bare hands and not wash them between, had some souvlaki that was pretty good but tried the calamari (only one in the group) tasted kinda weird and chewy, only had a few pieces and now 2 hours later stomach feels like it is being crushed and I'm...

I eat here on a semi-regular basis and they never fail to deliver what I want. I would recommend the lamb full plate with wrap, but I'm certain the other meats are delicious as well. I find their meals are very consistent quality and are filling enough for 1-2 meals when full plate is ordered. Why not 5*? I prefer... More

After a busy weekend we did not want to cook so tested out skipthedishes and ordered from Creteus. Pork and chicken souvlaki dinners with one tiny skeur of meat, 2 overcooked potatoes soupy salty rice and big chunks of veggies overdressed. Pita bread was the best part. Feels like we ate sodium content of a McDonald's meal.

I've had takeout from this place twice. It is very tasty and for the price the portion sizes are good! Don't let the outside appearance baffle you (located as part of a gas station). Takeout is probably better. Open on Sundays is always a plus. Very filling and delectable and definitely worth a try!!

this used to be a favorite of mine for calamari however my most recent visit after a long absence was very disappointing, the portion was sparse the price high, there was more batter than calamari.

This place may look strange from the outside but don't let it's looks deceive you! The food is marvelous! We had the chicken souvlaki full plate, the donair full plate, the pork souvlaki and the hummus with pita and a pita and Greek salad. We were so stuffed but couldn't stop eating. Our only regret was that we hadn't ordered... More

Healthy and delicious are the two word that come to mind. I highly recommend this restaurant. Limited seating, and a limited menu but everything on it that I've tried has been first rate quality, good portion size, and mouth-watering.

The lamb souvlaki & potatoes were seasoned perfectly and the pita bread was warm & fresh. Loved the gyros and we both thought the Greek salad was the best we'd ever tasted, the dressing was perfect. This was among the best Greek food we've ever had. We highly recommend it.
