The place was good when it opened , now it got way up there in price for what it is . Plus it seems a bit dirty and the staff is not that attentive , you can tell the owner doesn't come around often . It just seems like the kind of place that has rats in the basement .

An enjoyable lunch for a group of 6 old friends. The restaurant is dark with a nice traditional environment. The apps (bread and hummus) were exceptional. All entrees were great, hot, tasty, plenty of food with good presentation. My vegetarian dish was awesome. Prices were a bit high. Our server, Nick was very personable, but was new and not familiar... More

We had a lovely lunch here. Service was really good. Food was fresh and really large portions. Menu is very large with a ton of options for every budget and appetite. Fresh baked pita brought to every table. Good wine and beer selection.

Nicholas is my favorite restaurant in Gresham. The Mediterranean menu is varied so that our group of a vegan, a vegetarian, a gluten-free eater and those of us that like meat can all coexist over a flavorful meal. We always start with the giant pita, oil and balsamic. I've had a variety of dishes over the years and have liked... More

They have a great variety of Mediterranean food. The meat mezza is my favorite. Try the mint tea. Fresh baked pita bread. Great hummus and babba ganoush. They serve lots of food so bring a good appetite.

This is such good food! It is consistently good. The kabobs are great, served with a yellow rice and some oil emulsified with garlic that is delicious if you love garlic, but guaranteed to give you dragon breath! I had enough food for lunch the next day. The complementary bread is a puffy flat bread that is so huge it... More

We were meeting up with friends at the Portland Airport on the way to a photography workshop in the Columbia River Gorge, and I had researched this restaurant on Trip Advisor. It was easy to find and seating was no problem... When we sat down they brought a piping hot large Pita for us to dip in oil, humous and... More

I have never had a bad experience at this restaurant. The menu is extensive. Everyone is given a huge flat bread at the beginning of their meal. I have not tried their new bowl for lunch that they have added to their menu. I am looking forward to that.
