I was surprised to discover it had changed(no idea when) from ok take-out food to a small nicely decorated restaurant with really delicious food, huge menu so we have to return to try more yet I am reluctant to give up the ones we have already tried. My favorite dilemma Another review mentioned their octopus, since I know I love it and can’t find it very often (and also haven’t been as successful as I’d like making it myself) I had to order it. So good! But after giving my husband a taste I had to share my appetizer so next time I want to order it as a dinner(my waiter was nice enough to tell me I could even if I didn’t see it listed).
An absolutely must try, the food is just that good.

We love this place and have been here many many times. Last Saturday evening we dined here with friends and had a truly awesome meal. The spicy feta with pita bread is to die for. The octopus is cooked to perfection as is the stuffed chicken with spinach .
Everything is well-made and very authentic you will not be disappointed if you have a dinner here

We were very happy with our meal. My husband got the vegan combination plate, which included vegetarian dolmas, falafel, fresh peas, rice and hummus. All were *fantastic* with unique flavor profiles; the dolmas, for example, were sweet (perhaps lentils and prunes?), and the peas were perfectly cooked and spiced. I had grilled calamari (which was high quality and well cooked, but not a dish I would get again), served with balsamic grilled vegetables (excellent), and tzatziki (also great). The included greek salads were fresh and well seasoned. Like others, we found the service a bit slow, but left wishing we had had longer to linger rather than that the service had been quicker.

We were also impressed with the homey interior. The owners did a wonderful job creating a space that feels nothing like a strip mall restaurant. The decor was cute & creative.

We'll be back!

Authentic Greek menu and excellent preparation. Service was excellent on a quiet weekday evening. This is a place to go to for Greek dishes, done well. Don't be put off by the location in strip mall on CV Parkway. The restaurant is pleasant and cheerful.
