“Fabulous Greek Food in the Shoals!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2013

This restaurant was originally on 2nd Street near Leighton, but has moved to Cloverdale Road. The location is much better, as is the ambiance. The food is traditional Greek cuisine. They offer lamb, pork, and chicken for many of their dishes. The brochette and the kebab are delicious as is the gyro. I have also had the moussaka and the grilled vegetables. Most of the plates that have a meat (pork, lamb, chicken) come with fries and Greek salad for dinner and a choice of one of them for lunch. I have never had a disappointing meal here. One of my favorite things on the menu is the hummus. It is obviously made fresh, not like the kind you buy in the grocery store. And, the desserts are delicious. Viki, one of the owners, makes them from scratch daily. The kataifi and baklava are my favorites. I haven't tried the cake, but I have heard other dinners rave about it. Be adventurous. Give this place a try. They have delicious, authentic Greek food!

“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant has moved from a rural setting to Cloverdale Road in Florence, a very short distance off of Cox Creek Pkwy. If you like Greek food you will LOVE this place. The owners are actually from Greece and they are expert chefs! The menu is extensive and every dish I have tried has been out of this world! It is located in a strip mall between a pizza place and a Mexican restaurant so it is easy to find. If you are not familiar with Greek cuisine I KNOW you will like something on the menu. It is a must eat place!!
