So I came here at the recommendation of my best friend. Upon entering I noticed that there was napkins EVERYWHERE; I wasn't familiar with Greek tradition. Apparently every hour the waiters/waitresses dance and throw napkins; there's also plate breaking and screams of OPA! Very awesome if you get a chance to check it out. The food = AMAZING. I only...

My companion had eaten here before and wanted me to go. It is located in a strip mall that is very busy- there is a German beer garden, a Japanese restaurant, a couple of other restaurants, and parking is tight (they have complementary valet parking). Walk into a big noisy space with napkins all over the floor. I found out... More

Food was out of this world. Huge menu to choose from. Atmosphere was excellent. Dancing waiters and the belly dancer was a quite delight.

I love this place!! The food is great - I had a wrap which was excellent and a good price for dinner. Other people at our table enjoyed the moussaka and shish kebabs. They also have great entertainment, even on weeknights.

I really like this plays. You can eat delicious food, especially deserts! All staff so nice and friendly with you. Sometimes they do small show where people dance.

The food was not bad, but was very average. Entrees were on the bland side. My dessert, which I had never seen before, and don't know the name of, looked like a blondie, and I was told that they heated it and served it with honey drizzled over the top. It sounded good, but when it arrived it tasted like... More

This was our first visit to the restaurant. The ambience is nice, great entertainment and all the servers were very polite and knowledgable of the menu. The food was average, my pork kabobs were burnt. The 2 for 1 sangrias was a nice perk.

I have been frequenting this restaurant for many years and am rarely disappointed. Tonight, I had one of my favorite salads, the Karpathos grilled chicken salad. It was fantastic, as usual,and our server was spot on. If you like Greek food, I recommend trying this place.

Wow! Fun location for dinner. The staff was fun and our server was very attentive to our group. One table of our group had the family dinner and my tale we each ordered individual meals. I had the Shrimp Mykonos the was very good and a full meal, also with a small Greek salad that was more than enough. The... More
