Never any doubts as the quality of the food and service when we go here. The food is enough that three of us share a Lebanese salad and a Vegetarian mezza platter and leave stuffed. The freshly made pita bread is the size if a garage pizza and served on a pizza stand at the table. This trip was a birthday celebration and our server (who is very good) sent us home with two pieces of baklava as her treat. Will continue coming here when in Portland. Love this place!

Serving the best middle-eastern/Lebanese food in Pdx, Nicholas is much overlooked because of its hyper casual, even funky decor. But it’s very convenient, located off NE 33rd and offers terrific middle eastern salads and other classic plates. Handmade pita bread hot off the oven meets all new guests.

The Greek cuisine at Nicholas is exceptionally good. The lamb, chicken, vegetarian and specialty "pizzas" are all very well prepared and reasonably priced. I did not see any desserts. The setting is in an older building with crowded seating. Depending on the day of the week, it takes a while to be seated. If really crowded, you may have to wait outside the door to be called. There is a reason that this happens; the food is worth the wait!

We've always enjoyed meals here (have probably eaten here 20 times). Tues. Oct. 31 we were disappointed. The signature pita bread, which we always look forward to, was underbaked and not as flavorful as in the past. ????? Breast-meat kabob was very chewy this time. Tabouli and rice were delicious as always. We packed leftovers in our Tupperware to take home. We had a good lunch the next day, but not as good a lunch as we usually have with these leftovers.
