“Amazing place right in the neighborhood, but a Saturday is a must go!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

I have lived in the Woodlands are for awhile now and have just now realized this place. My husband and I went for our first time last Saturday. We did it last minute so we were seated in the bar area. The view of the show was not the best, but the food and atmosphere was amazing. We had such a great time. The food was so inexpensive and we had tons of left overs. The wine was more than our meal! We shared the humus as an appetizer and the sampler plate and oh my goodness it was so good. Right after we finished is when the show started. We stayed for about 45 minutes of the show but made reservations to go back the tomorrow and take our parents and children. I hope they enjoy it as much as we did!

“Fresh, hot & tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

First night in town and found this local greek restaurant in a strip mall. Pleasantly surprised by nice decor, helpful staff and by the fresh, hot and tasty food. Greek salad was cold crisp and plentiful for $4.00 add on to dinner. Pita and olive oil were very tasty. Pasticico was flavorful and filling. Roast Lemon chicken was tasty but white chicken meat was dry. Restaurant was a good solid find. Clean, good service and very affordable.

“Opa! Yum yum yum”

This was the best Greek food that I have ever tasted. The prices were very reasonable and the staff was very friendly. I will defiantly go back next time I am in Houston.

“Good food and atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

We've eaten at this restaurant several times. Nothing fancy, just excellent Greek food, reasonably priced, with good service as well. Dinner on a weekend evening featured live music and Greek dancing. Fun, festive atmosphere. No live music at lunch, but the lunch menu features a number of inexpensive options, with surprisingly generous portions considering the price. Lunch service was prompt and friendly.

“Very good Greek with a great lunch special”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

I am very lucky to work near this restaurant, and eat there at least once a week for lunch. Their food is fresh, and I try to get something different every time. The Chicken Orzo salad is wonderful, the Greek Salad is excellent, but the best thing is their Hero the meat is melt in your mouth delicious.

If you go during lunch order off the lunch menu, it will save you money, and they have 3 lunch specials (besides salads & misc other things) to choose from. The service is great, a little slow from 12 - 1 pm but only due to the large crowd that shows up for lunch so I recommend going at 11:30 to beat the rush.
