“Mmmm Mmmm Good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

My husband and I have been searching for a good Greed restaurant for a long time. We usually only go to the Mad Greek on our way to Las Vegas. We almost drove 100 miles to fill our craving, but decided to take a chance on Paps Cristo's ~ What an amazing surpise! We ordered the Gyro plate and wow wow wow wow... it was supurb! The ambiance simple and they made us feel like we were a part of their family, a new home away from home. Live music was just the right touch. Not only did we save a 200 mile round trip but now we have a new place to dine.

“Best Greek food in LA!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013 via mobile

All of the dishes here are delicious! My favorites are the dolmas, falafel, & spanakatopia- awesome! And the baklava is heavenly!!! The staff here are welcoming and the owner is very gracious & makes sure you are satisfied. There is valet parking as the parking is scarce. Overall, the best Greek food I've had in LA!!!

“Fantastic Food and a Belly Dancer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Seriously, what else do you need in a Greek Restaurant. We did the Thursday night banquet, price was exceptionally good as was the food. Wine tasting and a sampling of great food. You are seated in a group which isn't what we would normally do but in this case it was perfect. Great food and great chatting. The Belly Dancer was not only very good but played very well to all the guests. If you like Greek food don't hesitate to go, as well as a fantastic deli that has everything you can imagine to create your own Greek dishes. Stop reading and just Go.

“Fantastic Thursday Night Supper”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

We just got home from having the most fun and wonderful dinner here ! For 25 bucks plus tax and tip you get a wine tasting of 2 whites and 2 reds, you get assorted appetizers and pita, follow that with salad and dinner of lamb and chicken and potatoes and string beans and complete your meal with baklava and thick sweet greek coffee. And a beautiful and talented belly dancer ! It's all served family style for the Thursday night dinner and we sat with 6 people we'd never met and were friends with by the evening's end. You HAVE to go !!! And the staff - the best !!!

“Great food, fun atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

Had a late lunch here with family recently. The food and atmosphere were fantastic. Expect to stand in line to order your food, grab your number and try to find a table (even though a Sunday afternoon, it was quick to get a table).
The Moussaka was prepared the way I had it in Greece - in an individual dish vs. casserole style. It was perfect. My child's kabobs were amazing and the plate was cleaned. Greek salad, pita, baked feta, and amazing Gyro meat - of which, I have truly never had better. Valet parking is a plus for the area and the in-restaurant market is a great way to take home the flavor. Have fun with it and take it for what it is -- amazing food.
