Hands down, one of the best Greek restaurants on Long Island. Tucked away in a corner in a strip mall, they prepare all food fresh daily. From standard Gyros, to awesome salads to BBQ lamb and fish, everything is so tasty and comes out freshly prepared and hot. One of my favs is the Nostalgia Salad with grilled salmon on... More

Fabulous Greek food - I try the moussaka every time I can find a Greek restaurant. This moussaka was excellent and the portion was large. Came with a salad and that was excellent also. Couldn't finish because the server put a complimentary dish of the Greek yogurt dip with fresh warm pita bread on the table when I arrived and... More

Authentic Greek. Probably the best in Suffolk County. Eggplant, saganaki, kontasouvli, falafel, grape leaves, soup, baklava ... A little expensive, but WELL worth it. Eat in or take out.

So much more than just the basic Greek choices. I especially enjoy the fish dishes, made to order. And the servings are very plentiful... always enough for two meals. Oopa!

Food at this establishment was delicious and varied. The avgolemon soup was delicious. You and a companion can easily make a meal out of their soup, Greek salad and a few appetizers. We also used this restaurant to cater a home party, and everyone raved about the food. Delicious pastistio!!.

We love Greek food but it is not easy to find really good Greek food. This restaurant is really good! The Greek salads are fresh and the dressing is terrific. Portions are large so you definitely will bring home food. Excellent service and "oh those lemon potatoes!"

I only have had the Greek Salad with chicken here. The salad is delicious but a little expensive $13 for a small salad. Would definitely recommend.

You're welcomed with tzatziki pita and rice. The menu has so many excellent options it is sometimes difficult to choose. The food is fresh and tasty.

Actually inedible. Too salty soup, chicken that I couldn't chew through. And terrible service. I was embarrassed that I brought my friend to this restaurant. Go to Souvlaki Palace on Commack Road. Food is always good there.
