You'll get the feeling that your mother cooked that meal for you. It's a family business and actually the mum is the one who's cooking. I have been eating at Zenon for the past 3 years, not once have I been disappointed! Awesome Cyprian Greek food.
There menu is divided by the days of the week, so on mondays, they have certain types of meat, fish and vegetables, Tuesdays, other types of meat, fish and vegetables and so on. But they also have a section on their menu to order from everyday.
Don't miss their lemon potatoes..amazing.
Love their desert too, completely different then other restaurants. I love the way they present the desert, the waiter comes with a tray with all types of desert on it, explains them and you get to see the portion and how it really looks like.

Try them :)

We love Zenon's Seafood Meze, and keep going back. Everything else any of us has ordered has also been very good. Prices are reasonable for quality and ambiance.

I don't understand what the hype is about. I ate there tonight with a few friends. It's like the type of food you would get a cheap tourist trap, where the patrons are unfamiliar with what Greek/Cypriot food would taste like.
The service was decent, as was the atmosphere. But the food was old, or stale, or tasted like it came from a can. My boyfriend had the briam, which he said was decent. The kalamari was old and stale tasting, the dips tasted like they were from a can, my friend ordered a "Zenon pita", which was so pathetically amateur in its attempts to resemble authentic Cypriot cuisine, and my other friend ordered the chick and rice soup, which looked awful and was way too salty.
Zenon should rethink its menu and its cooking style, because there are too many good Greek restaurants in Astoria for people to eat here. Especially when they charge what they do...
But I should repeat, the waitstaff was nice, and the restaurant had a cozy/clean look to it.

This place is such a gem! It has a gorgeous interior that makes you feel like you have stepped off NYC streets and into a Mediterranean vacation. The staff are helpful and uber-friendly, the food is delicious and although not cheap, very appropriate for the immense quantities of food when you order the set meal!
