Dining here made me long for the real stuff as this disappoints. The meats were bland and sauces left much to be desired. The dolmas were bland and had ice crystals in them, not to mention Na content to rival the Aegean. Service was slow...More

Our hotel recommended The Greek Lady for authentic Philly Cheese Steak, however the Greek sandwiches and salads looked very good. So good that my son and I changed our minds. We ordered a chicken gyro & chicken souvlaki wrap - identical except the cut of...More

Tasty food and good service. Plenty of choices including all-day breakfast. We tried the veg rap and found it tasty and sumptuous.

Have a very extensive menu.... lots of choices. Had a good gyro with lots of meat; but wish I tried one of the Philly cheesesteaks after seeing them at the tables next to me. Baklava was flakey, moist and very flavorful.... it was awesome.

This is the best Greek salad that I've ever had. The fresh feta cheese and grilled chicken is plentiful. Salad dressing home made. Their salads are big enough for two people. Probably recommend for lunch.

Background: After a day of walking (6 miles or so), we were advised to try The Greek Lady, as the curly fries rank in Philadelphia's top tier, though obviously below the goddess Aphrodite! Verdict: The huge portion of crisp curly fries and lamb gyro hit...More
