Aliki's is a small Greek Restaurant, a bit away from the beaten path. While less than half a mile from Century Blvd., Aliki's is well worth seeking out. I had the moussaka which was excellent. The other dishes I saw looked equally good. You feel like you are dining in a Greek kitchen. The aromas and music send you to... More

Great Greek food. Authentic and lots of option. Quick service and friendly environment. We had the calamari and the falafel sandwich with hummus side. Very happy and the size was great for a quick light meal. We walked there from the Holiday Inn Express LAX.

This is the best Greek food I've tried! And i go to a lot of Greek food places. Try the grilled feta... Just perfect. Gyros are great too... Makes me want to fly more often!

Delicious menu of Greek food. The staff were friendly and accomodating to our young family, the kids had a great time and so did we. When you pull up out front, you'll think about leaving, do yourself a favour and walk on in, you won't regret it

This place deserves to be rated well, the food is good, and unlike most places in this area, it is an old school family-run type of restaurant from years ago. The place is very basic, not much different than a diner. Gyros, Greek salad, hummus and pita was what we dined on, and the good was solid. The desserts were... More

Fancy it's not. But if you enjoy delicious food served by people who love what they're doing, you'll love Aliki. We ordered an appetizer named Lahanodolmades. Cabbage leaves stuffed with ground beef and rice then covered in a lemony sauce. Yummy! For entrees we had the gyro plate and chicken skewers. The gyro meat was OMG delicious. Aliki offers inexpensive... More

Who knew? That such a great Greek place would be close to LAX airport? Close enough to grab a cab on a layover. I would give it a 4.5, but TA doesn't allow that. The service is a little slow, but you can certainly tell that this is authentic cuisine. I'm thrilled to have a choice of great food so... More

We have been here numerous times and the food is delicious! If you like Greek food, this is the best. No atmosphere, no attitude, just terrific food.
