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

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.

The staff here is incredible. Our server, Kimberly, was attentive and friendly... one of the best servers I have ever had. The menu has a sizable greek section, turkish dishes, israeli, pasta. Something for everyone. Reasonable prices and huge portions, especially for dishes like Pastitsio and Moussaka. Their house creamy-garlic salad dressing is delicious.

Delicious food and smells so good when you walk in. I haven't tried a lot of different things yet but plan on it. Yummy baklava!

Debbie and I had Chicken Shawarma at the recommendation of a friend who often raves about it and it was as she said. Fantastic and reasonably priced. Bethanie was our waitress and she was courteous, friendly and efficient - a real A+.
