We have been to this restaurant many times and have not been disappointed. It serves authentic Mediterranean cuisine. There can be a wait and reservations are not taken. The service once seated is warm and friendly. The food selection is broad. The serving sizes are ample. Our favorites are the Chicken Kebabs and Salmon Kebabs and the Greek Salad. Serving sizes are large. Each time we have placed an order we have been served within about 10 minutes and everything has been warm (except chilled salad), well seasoned and cooked and quite tasty. Highly recommend!!

This is one of my favorite Newport restaurants. Huge portions of deliciousness. I love the chicken kabob entree. The paninis are excellent as well but the kabobs and more traditional mediterranean dishes really were fantastic!

We live abouts 15 minutes away, but if we are having take out, this is our go to place, the best quality & value around. The chicken kabobs with basmati rice & their wonderful mixed greens salad w feta cheese is AWESOME!

My wife and I love eating here. The chicken kebab special at $9.95 is a true bargain. The marinade for the chicken makes it absolutely delicious. Also, the family to-go special at $30 for 4 chicken dinners is great.for parties and get-togethers at home. The location in Irvine is just as good, quite a bit bigger in size, and less crowded in the evening.

Their best location remains in Beverly Hills but it is nice to get the restaurant in OC as well. Not the same atmosphere but the same great food.
Go for kebab plate beef or lamb are fantastic.
