We get many different items when we're there. We get falafel, Gyros plate , and many other items. It comes with the cucumber sauce but we always ask for the garlic sauce and the house salad to be the garlic salad. Which is the Lebanese version.

My wife and I came in here this weekend for a little early Valentines getaway. We had never heard of this place but my wife found it in the entertainment guide. Both of us love Greek and Mediterranean food so we thought that we would give it a shot. We were not disappointed. The owner greeted us as soon as... More

everyone's food could use more flavor but like Mexican and Thai foods in Minnesota I think it gets toned down for the masses I had green eggs & Lamb ( Lamb chops with two eggs topped with a cilantro, Jalapeno pesto that had basically no taste) my wife & one of our friends had combo platters all cooked well but...

Had the drink named after the place- Ansari coctail I think. Was yummy and had a lot of alcoholin it for what it was. Kids enjoyed gyros and husband got steak and shrimp. I got... More

The food is tasty, but not the best I've had. The atmosphere knocks this down another star for me. The bar area smells strongly of smoke. I'm not sure if it is clinging to the patrons or leftover from the days when smoking was allowed indoors. I'm also not a fan of belly dancers walking around asking for tips. I... More

We wandered over during a snow storm at our nearby hotel. There was a bellydancer as well as tvs going a dart game and regular restaurant eating. We're not big on Mediterranean food so tried a steak appetizer that was great and from there we ordered a dinner to share. We had a medium spicy garlic shrimp with rice and... More

Actually went there to play Bingo with family. Had coffee and a piece of baklava For $2 I got a small piece that had way too much honey and only one layer of walnuts. Not even sure it was made with filo dough. Looked at the buffet and concluded it wasn't worth $15.

Ordered a Greek Feta platter - hummus, pita bread, olives, feta, etc Ordered a Falafel wrap which was good! But the best part - chocolate molten... More

Overall, the food was quite good, especially the grilled meats and salad dressing. It is a rather unusual atmosphere with the bar and dining areas part of the same space. The service was good. Being Greek, we are familiar with many of the foods served here and felt it very strange that "Greek potatoes" turned out to be homemade potato... More

Sami our waiter was funny, and helpful. He guided us through the menu...finally deciding on the Mediterranean Sampler containing Doma (stuffed grape leaves), Hummas with pita wedges, Greek Salad, Falafels, Kibbi (falafel stuffed with seasoned ground beef), and Gyro meat with Tziki sauce.
