Fair prices, good service, comfortable ambiance. Not worth going a distance, so for a very local experience with reasonable food and nice surroundings, Thavma works for friends, families, whatever!

Really like this place. Nice, friendly and helpful staff, High quality food that is consistently good at reasonable prices. I agree with the reviewer whose headline is "Dependable" as well. Eat here often and never have a complaint.

fresh ingredients and great service always from day one many years ago. This started off as the ITS GREEK TO ME but progressed very nicely after the owner departed from that chain which would not let him offer more variety

I like Thavma grill. It's usually good. Last time we were there the service was horrible but usually it's not. I like the menu. Not bad for a change of cuisine. Greek . Not too pricey.

Eaten here several times but this wa the best. From our server Chris, to the salad (customized to our request), to the perfectly cooked and wonderfully tasty food, to the nice general ambiance. Only issue was restaurant was a little chilly on a cool damp evening.

Thavma, a Greek restaurant located in a partially enclosed mall is quite good. Specializing in seafood they Asoka serve very good Lamb, pork & beef dishes. Appetizers & deserts are carefully prepared & served by an attentive staff. BYO & parking on street.

My husband got the Thavma and said it was good. I got the chicken kabob platter. I thought the chicken could have had more flavor. Pitas were served nice and warm. A special treat. There specialty soup was good. Olives were pitted and I wasn't expecting that. Overall service was good, but a water refill should have happened and it... More

They have a great outdoor area but it was so hot we opted to dine inside with the air conditioning. Three of us ordered the lamb burgers which were DELICIOUS. My mother ate the Lamb chops she said they were tasty but definitely not traditional Greek flavoring. The eggplant dish we all shared for an appetizer was actually a main... More

Although Thavma is a little hard to find, on the 2nd floor of a small plaza, it is worth it. Great service, great food. Salmon is delicious.
