I got the kofta kebob which was good. It would have been better if I were to have ordered it less well done, but such is the nature of kebabs. The bread with dipping stuff is fun and the garlic butter makes anything more yummy. I just get a good feeling about this place.

excellent food ,presented well although they will serve each order when ready rather than serving all at once so that one person will eat and finish before other people at the table are served their meal which makes it a little awkward.If not busy , they will try to clear the table rather quickly so that a dish could be...

Nicholas has indoor and outdoor seating in the summer. The menu is simple consisting of salads, Kabobs and mixed plates. The portions are large and I would suggest ordering family styles for groups and couples split an entrée and maybe add an appetizer. Every table is served to start a large flat bread, soft and tender, with a ramekin of... More

The good here is the best Greek food I've ever had! Very fresh and authentic. There was creative variety. We had a group of 7 and tried lots of items. Waiter wasn't very helpful with food descriptions and wasn't very attentive.

The food was average. The fresh, hot bread is a bit tasteless it needs salt I believe. We ordered a mixed grill and it was tasty and a lot of food for one person. The service was good and the restaurant has street parking. The place needs to be refreshed a bit. The bathroom was a bit dirty.

I wasn't too familiar with this type of Mediterranean fare but was very pleased with it. The service was very good too.

The food has always been plentiful and great tasting on every visit. Although the last time the meat was a little tough. They have fresh bread that taste wonderful! It is a little pricey but the portions are pretty big. I would recommend it to anyone looking for some good Lebanese food.

We stopped by because we were in the area and this place had received good ratings from others. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and will definitely return. It was like a mini-vacation - learning about new foods, trying new things. Loved it! And downtown Gresham was great too - lots of little shops and lots of folks walking around during... More
