This is our all time favorite when it comes to Mediterranean food. The hummus is lovely. I've never had a bad meal there but the kicker? Their iced tea is the best in town, hands down. Great service and a fantastic menu.

My wife and I have lived all over Las Vegas and we have been driving across town for years to eat the best Gyros and hummus ever. We love this place. The service is fast and friendly and the food is the best mediteranian food around. Can't wait to come back!

I have visited the restaurant on two occasions and thoroughly enjoyed the food and the service. I was a bit disappointed because their menu does not include my favorite dish, lamb chops. Every Mediterranean restaurant should include lamb chops. They do carry lamb kabobs which are very tasty though. The tabouli, hummus and the gyros are really good too. The... More

Mediteranean foot is good. Very good Mousaka although the portion is tiny. Gyros are good but not great. Would give 2.5 stars.

Wow! The food here was absolutely fabulous! We had the appetizer combination with more stuff than I can remember! That, in itself, could be a meal! We split the kebab combination - beef, lamb, and chicken - that melted in our mouths! The wine list isn't very extensive and is pretty expensive for the class of wines. Surprisingly, the service...

The happy hour has good prices. I was very surprised that the cab. sauv. sold for cheap, was that good. Staff was attentive and and the food, for the most part was good. Unfortunately, a Greek restaurant that over cooks lamb, is questionable. I had the Gyros platter. It has a good presentation, but the lamb is thin and when... More

Wednesday night at Paymon's, get 25% off bill. Never had a bad meal or poor service here. The Staff is friendly and all know their menu and individual dishes to perfection; atmosphere is calming. On the bucket list is to some day eat in the Hookah Lounge. Till then, will continue to enjoy Paymon's.

The atmosphere is relaxing, a cozy home feel. Staff was friendly and polite. You can't go wrong in choosing any pasta dish, they're all perfect and generous portions. You can finish off by taking a sip of espresso, which is quite good! We have been told blueberry margaritas are excellent, but we haven't actually tasted them. Prices are accessible too.
