Wine with pine resin finish is nice. MOUSSAKA!!!!!! Nestled among the rental car options surrounding LAX, you can leave the airport hungry and wait out the traffic at the same time!

Convenience to Enterprise and the other rental car places near LAX is a positive. And even though much better than fast food, I keep coming back and wanting to find something I really like, but it just doesn't happen. The greek salad dressing was great, but the lettuce was way obviously wilted, -not sure how they could serve it like... More

Stooped over in LA for a few days nearby at the airport and spotted the restaurant and the rave reviews. The food couldn't have been better! Although, from arriving at 9:15pm we were very rushed into order our food. Our starters were brought at separate times and were given the bill and asked to pay while we were finishing our... More

Dear Nickat11, Thank you for your kind review. Our kitchen here at Aliki's closes at 9:30 PM and the restaurant closes at 10:00 PM. This is because this is a small family restaurant and our cooks and waiters work hard for long hours and they need to go home at a certain time. We always do our best to accommodate... More

I love this place! The food and the staff are both excellent! I was fortunate a few years ago to live in Greece for a time, and this is the first place in LA I've found with delicious, authentic Greek food, and trust me, I've tried quite a few in my search. My favourite is the pastitsio! Do yourself a... More

Due to weather delays, I was stuck at LAX for two nights, both nights I found salvation at Aliki's. This is a place where great food and warm personal service remind you what restaurants are supposed to be. The lamb shank with lemon potatoes and sautéed green beans was my best meal of 2017.

I decided to visit this place before heading back to the airport. It was early, around 4:30, so the place was empty. I decided on beef souvlaki. While I was waiting for my meal, I noticed my surroundings. Old posters of Greece and not the cleanest place. Ok, the meal came. It looked disgusting and tasted worse. The beef was... More

Here we have a "customer" that claims that he ordered the beef souvlaki plate which according to him "looked disgusting" and "tasted worse". He also claims that "the beef was definitely old" and "tasted rotten"!!!! He farther claims that "the rice seemed like it came from a ready-made package" and that "the green beans had to have been from a... More

My husband and I were passing through L.A. and spent the night in a hotel near LAX. He looked up info about nearby restaurants for dinner and found Aliki's Greek Taverna.

Great food with authentic style. The hummus portion was huge. It's small and cramped due to its popularity but we had a nice time.
