In a crummy part of town the food is very good. Greek restaurant with very good Greek dishes. If you are here and want to eat, this is a good option.

We were visiting relatives in the area and they took us here for lunch. What a great meal. Everything was done to perfection. We tried a few appetizers and all were amazing. The saganaki/flaming cheese was excellent. Also tried a couple different dips. One was a mashed garlic spread and the other was a thick soup like spread made from... More

This is one my favorite restaurants for Mediterranean food. They have the best stuffed grape leaves in the Detroit area. They are listed as an appetizer but I usually order them for my entrée. There ten grape leaves in an order, which is pretty much a meal. We usually order a large Greek salad for the table, which is delicious... More

This is the place to good for authentic Greek Food. Whether you decide to eat in or do a carry out you will not be disappointed. The prices are a little high but the food is well worth it.

No need to go all the way to Greektown when you have this delicious Hidden Gem of Greek specialties. And has a comfortable atmosphere and delicious food. This is a place that the locals all know and love you won't regret it.

After hearing occasional raves about this restaurant for years, the wife and I left the house one afternoon with it as our destination for a late lunch or early dinner. Located a few miles south of Detroit in an industrial area with a large steel mill nearby, the exterior can best be described as unpretentious. Once inside, the description remained... More

This is the type of restaurant that Anthony Bourdain would visit. It's been here for years, the food is excellent and the service is very friendly. Everything was good and the food was fresh. We started with wine, saganaki, a Greek salad and moved onto lemon rice soup, lamb chops (the thinner kind) and stuffed grape leaves. We finished off... More

All the cooked food was overdone. The chicken was cooked to much. The shish kabobs were overdone as well. The Lamb chops were very thin AND overcooked. I am not sure if I will return. The prices went up, and the quality went down. I will try 1 more time before I lose their address. Everybody has a bad day... More

Don't go here without trying the spicy feta dip! Lamb chops are to die for, and the waitress even gave us some yummy little desserts complimentary. Great service, prices aren't too bad, and it's not hoity toity at all - just great food. Will definitely be back!
