Celebrated a birthday with 20 friends on a Saturday night. There was not one person who didn't like there food. The service was tops & the entertainment with belly dancers was great. As we were leaving understand there was a Latin Band getting set up to play.

The Gyros are amazing. I really like the happy hour gyro tacos, and they only cost around $7.00 (during happy hour). Great staff and it is operated by a very friendly family of a few generations.

The Greek salad I had was wonderful and my husband had tabouli and that to was fine. For our meza we had baba ganoush and kibbeh. Again great food. Then the entree came. My husband... More

Celebrating two adult birthdays and staff were accommodating making it a fun night. The Jamel Kabob entree was very good . The restaurant features a belly dancing performance which was tasteful and professional. My granddaughter was fascinated by the "princess" dancing.

Fun atmosphere, great for kids and couples a like we will be coming back soon! Seeing the belly dancing Saturday nights adds a bit more entertainment... More

This restaurant has a large menu of items to choose from. Their rack of lamb is one of the best I've had, in seasoning and cooking temperature. It is so much more healthy feeling and satisfying food than many other restaurants. Definitely will return.

Can't really blame them, but we came at 1 pm and had the lunch buffet. Many of the Entre's were gone or very little left. The gyro meat and seasoned chicken kabobs saved the day, however. Definitely not as good as last time, but we'll come again. This time was just an oversight I hope.

Went with another couple before heading to a show at the Ames Center next door. Great selection of food in a casual and fun atmosphere. Food and service was very good. We will definitely be back!

I love stopping in for happy hour usually, but recently I have had a few dinners and absolutely love the menu and the choices I made. The staff is friendly and welcoming.
