I have been coming here since 1998 the food is always the same as day one. Family owned and it's one of my favorites in Mpls. If you want true Greek Food your here.

Really good food and service. The restaurant is small but didn't have trouble getting a table on a Friday night. Waiter was very knowledgeable. Our family of 4 shares several appetizers and entrees. Prices very reasonable. Authentic, fresh, flavorful food. Will definitely be back!

We had a nice experience eating at this restaurant. Food was delicious. It's a small room and it was quite busy and noisey the night we were there. Our server was a bit overwhelmed but did a good job.

Food was very good. Lamb was perfectly seasoned and cooked. Pita was soft and just plain delicious. Services was good- seemed like a family run business. We were there with a party of 10 and we were a bit snug but not uncomfortable. My only...More
