    Went there for Father's Day with my son. We both had a great time. Excellent food and service. Ate outside on a beautiful day. We picked the Greek classics for our entrees, Moussaka and Pastichio. Both were wonderful. Appetizers of felafel, hummous, baba ghanouj and roasted beats, pita and cuke and carrot slices hit the spot. Go there! You won't be disappointed.

    I’ve been going here for years but was a little disappointed tonight I know prices have gone up and that’s OK but portions have also gone down a little and our waiter is not someone who I recognized and he wasn’t patient and it wasn’t that crowded enough that he should be rushing us I love their food and we’ll go back but again a little disappointed with eating there

    The noise level was higher since we ate outdoors. The food was great, nicely plated. The service was attentive but not obtrusive. Great to have a BYOB restaurant nearby.

    Flavor-flavor-FLAVOR. We were blown away by every main plate. The lamb & orzo had that slight something that differentiates from Italian cuisine. The rack of lamb was tender & succulent. The flounder lemonato was mouthwatering & the stuffers filet of sole was a flavor explosion. The 2nd floor location and lack of cover from the sun ruled out al fresco (umbrellas do little for coverage of late day sun.)

    We sat on the balcony, so between the traffic and piped in music, it was a bit noisy, but the breeze was lovely. The food and the service are terrific! One of our favorite Mediterranean restaurants.

    The ambiance of this place is great. For starters we had wings and calamari and those two were great. Our entrees however did not match the mark. The Lamb & Orzo, the meat was beautifully tender but the sauce was way too salty. The server recommended the appetizers and we were impressed, we probably should’ve asked for recommendations on our entree as well. If you are a first timer like we were, I suggest asking for recommendations.

    First time here. Even though restaurant was crowded table conversation felt private. I had steak and lamb shush kabob The steak was excellent lamb was ok but I am not fan of lamb normally. My son had lamb burger and thought it was excellent. Daughter tried falafel beet salad and liked it however the falafel felt like it was very processed. Spinach and artichoke dip great. Pita is outstanding. overall delicious and definitely recommend and will return

    4 of us were trying Thamva for the 1st time to see how it compared to other Greek restaurants that we enjoy. Can only say that it was okay/good. Not as tasty or well prepared as we had hoped. Thick zucchini chips? Was expecting thin and delicate ones. Waiter was relatively inattentive once he took our orders. Might try it for lunch if I needed to be in the area but probably won't travel 25-30 minutes to get there.
