Went to listen to reggae music. No cover charge which was good. However, the music was soooo loud that we left shortly after we arrived. Need to tone it down a bit...loud isn't necessarily good.

Great dinner!!! Comfortable and sophisticated atmosphere. Ordered the chicken dinner. Three large skewers of chicken, Greek salad, rice, pita bread with hummus. Everything was delicious!! Service was also excellent. Was pleasantly surprised and look forward to returning.

A new addition to SPI cuisine. Been open about 4 months. We were pleased all items ordered. Seasonings were good as were flavors. It will e one of our regular places. Ample servings. Hummus was different from what we are used to (watery) but it was good. Kabobs are great.

In an area filled with deep fried budget friendly restaurants, this one is a rare find! Yes, my glass of wine was more expensive than the other restaurants, however it was a much better quality, perfect pour in a nice large (and CLEAN glass) served at the perfect temperature! The food was amazing, freshly prepared, not over priced and we... More

Limited menu but nevertheless great for lunch. One of our party is a vegan, and is gluten intolerant and has dairy allergies. Needless to say, a hard thing to deal with when you eat out. She found this delightful place online and all four of us totally enjoyed our meals. Will definitely be back. Only drawback is that it's upstairs... More

A little restaurant which you probably would not really notice when driving by. Had read reviews prior to arriving . Glad I did. out. Absolutely fabulous chicken schwarma and steak gyros. The staff is friendly and the restaurant has a quite ambience upstairs. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting a great lunch meal.

We came here after discovering that Yummies was closed (during stated business hours and with a hand-written sign on the door, lol). We were super lucky we did. We were a party of 4 adults and 3 kids. They were SUPER accommodating! All of their specialty coffee drinks were amazing. There soup of the day was so good, I wish... More

GREAT little place not open on Mondays but offers expresso drinks that are pretty good, and breakfast items with some lunch sandwiches too. IF you would like a sandwich that is not a burger or from Subway, go here and you will not be disappointed. Check out their web site for menu choices too many to specify--expresso highly recommended.
