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.

Having taken a 2 week Greek vacation a couple of months ago, I needed to have a meal in a Greek restaurant. This place is a good one. Excellent service by Stephanie. Entrees was big. My octopus for $23 was very good. It included lemon potatoes and a small salad (or soup). My wife said her chicken Akrata was a... More

Tried this place based on the good reviews and we were very pleased. Portions are large and most entrees come with soup or salad and a side of rice or lemon potatoes, which is so much food! They also give you a small appetizer and a plate of tzatziki and pita to start so we were extremely full by the... More

To be honest I have not always been a fan of this restaurant. The last few times we have visited (my wife loves the place) I will admit the service AND the food seemed much improved. Grilled chicken, salads, the potatoes....definately have the potatoes, are all very good. It's a bit small and they are located in an inside corner... More
