Greek | Chapel Hill, Durham

Food was wonderful! Lots of traditional Greek fare to try on top of other dishes I have not heard of before. Everything we tried had amazing flavor. I tried some of my basic favorites and they were spot on: Avgolemono (chicken, lemon, rice soup) and Spanakotiropita (spinach and feta phyllo pie) for appetizers, Rotisserie Roasted Lamb and Pastitsio entrees, and Manouri Cheesecake for dessert. Our server, Thadeus, answered our many questions and provided excellent service. I will definitely be back. Kipos is more than great food. The atmosphere is welcoming and the experience itself is truly one of a kind. It was a perfect birthday evening for me! More
