My and I love to come here and enjoy the delicious food whenever we're in the Portland area. We've never been disappointed. Everything we try is uniquely flavorful. Unfortunately I failed to take pictures, so look at the pictures other people have provided.

For many years now Nicholas is one of our 'go to' places and never disappoints! Appreciate that they added beer but was always fine without it. Consistently a dining pleasure

Loved the food and the staff was great, had a nice family feel. They bring bread for dipping along with olive oil ,so good. Had their chicken bowl, highly recommend. The table hot sauce is fabulous.

Trip Advisor lead us to this delightful and rightfully busy restaurant. For dinner, we shared the Lamb Shwarma and Vegetarian Mezza. Both were outstanding. Large portions. The large pita was very tasty. We were in late, but service was welcoming and very good.
