After visiting the first time, I brought more family for dinner a few weeks later. My first visit, I had the couscous with vegetable stew and was dreaming about it; it is the perfect balance of savory and sweet and the spices were outstanding! I highly recommend the couscous dish! I of course ordered it the second time, but even... More

As a vegetarian family we've been coming here quite a few years. Always fresh and spiced well, but options for a variety of palates. Friendly staff and good unusual wine selection. This is also place can be either very casual or date night.

This is on the menu all the time. Well prepared, succulent, fall-off-the-bone. If you are a fan of lamb, I highly recommend this entree.

We now live in the Hilliard area and this is our go-to for Greek and Mediterranean food. We have been to some other similar type restaurants around the Columbus area, but this one takes the cake. We have always had great service and the owner is usually around making his guests feel very welcome. The waitstaff opened the doors on... More

Exceeded our expectations. Very impressed with baba ganoush- delicious! Also, really enjoyed the vegetarian dolmades and spicy chicken. Will come back again for sure!

Ate here while on a business trip, and the first thing that impressed me was that the owner saw us approaching his restaurant and opened the door for us! Very nice first impression. We ordered moussaka and pastitsio, and the portions were huge! Meals included a choice of salad, and we also ordered saganaki as an appetizer, so we ended... More

Nikki, our server, was terrific. Attentive without being overbearing, offered helpful recommendations and overall friendly and welcoming. We started our meal with the saganaki. YUM! They also have wine and beer offerings from the middle east which pair nicely with your meal. I thought the wines were reasonable, something like $5/glass. I ordered the lamb shank but should have known... More

You can't go wrong visiting this restaurant. There is something for everyone, even picky eaters. The hummus was outstanding, and the rest of the meal was fresh and delicious. Our waitress was attentive and very polite.

This is a sit down restaurant serving middle eastern food. This Greek plus dishes fro the surrounding areas. The wait staff was attentive and helpful but it goes downhill from there. This was our first trip and we may have caught them on a bad day, but not sure we'd every go back. First off, the ventilation needs to be... More

I ordered the greek Falafel Wrap & really enjoyed it. The falafel was mashed up throughout the sandwich so each bite was very flavorful and was not dry at all. I would highly recommend it. The portion size matches the price, so if you're very hungry, I would suggest ordering a app or dessert.
