The food is very acceptable....not as good as the many Greek places in Astoria, NY..... but still good. After the lamb chops there really is nothing there to brag about.
Get there early so that you can pick a comfortable table. Some of those tables are so close to each other that the woman at the next table had her elbow on mine. Any second I expected her to join in my conversation.

my friends and i visited this place while in he neiborhod. We hated every dish - they were basically frozen then microwaved - such as leg of lamb. the spinash pie was old and burned the philo was saggy and burned. the kebab was very salty and miniscule full of green papers to fill the dish. we think we were blatantly robbed of our hard earned money.

What a scam! .

Oh my god the is absolutely the worst place ever like another traveller calls it a bloody tourist trap. that's what it is I say head on over to Flanagan's or some thing the staff here are rude and disrespectful the food is not great tastes awful, they should be ashamed to call them selves a Greek restaurant. In nut shell don't waste your hard earned money on this dump.

Fresh home style cooking...friendly and informative waitstaff. Excellent ribs with a tangy lemon sauce. Wonderful large shrimp with the same flavored sauce. Delicious hummus served to the table with bread. Excellent...have 7 other friends who are regulars...Try it!! They don't take reservations and they do get crowded.

this restaurant is not a pleasant place to visit but it's located near the beach area.

the owners are very good businessmen they give you the impression that they do you a favor by having you. all their side dishes are mushy potatoes and overcooked beans.

sitting outside is the only thing pleasant about this place. we had fish for two which was not fresh and previously frozen. all their entrees are very charred. we also has a greek salad full of green pepers and onions enough to make you sick. what happened to the good vegetables?
we will not visit this place again even though we live in the area.
