Bread made to order and fun to watch the baking process. Friendly staff. Limited selections on menu . Falafel was crispy and very light.

Get the Greek salad, grape leaves rice rolls, puffed bread, and lamb. Service is quick and the food mouth-watering.

The food doesn't worth the price, it was expensive and the staff wasn't really welcoming. I asked for a gyro with meat it was anything but meat

Food quality is average with a small size. Don't be surprised if you don't feel full. Definitely over priced. Won't go back.

We always visit this restaurant when we go to Lake George. We love the food here. We always try other places to eat, but this place is where we go to first when we get there. The prices are fair and the food is amazing.

Being from Long Island, we are spoiled with great bagels, pizza, and Greek food. We were disappointed by the food here. The lavash bread was disappointing considering it is all over the menu. The Greek salad was so bland. The gyro meat was chopped so fine that it was the consistency of a Philly cheese steak. The falafel was over... More

We ordered the lavash with yogurt sauce, the falafel sandwich, the lamb gyro, and baklava for dessert. The freshness and softness of the lavash was spot on, the yogurt sauce was tangy, salty, and herby, and out falafel and gyro sandwiches were EXCELLENT (great sauce, falafel aromatic and crisp, fresh made pita, filling). The baklava was not what I expected.... More
