Kerostenas has the best hummus ever and everything else is outstanding too. This Mediterranean Restaurant is not fancy, but the food and service keeps us coming back. The gyro sandwich fills me up, but if you are a big eater, order a combo plate or their delicious lamb shank. They also cook vegetarian or vegan too. Their kabobs have wonderfully... More

This place was amazingly delicious. Everything our group ate was incredible. I had the lamb shank which is not a usual dish for me but the owner said it was the best in Southern California and if I didn't like it he'd give me my money back. He made good on that promise- the lamb was perfect. I will definitely... More

Classic, delicious Mediterranean food from proprietors who lived it all their lives. Hole-in-the-wall atmosphere with tantalizing scents. Very friendly. Good food takes a little to cook but, comfortable while you wait. The mark of a great place is that I keep coming back. And I do.

Loved their food. Service was goos but wait time for meal long. Atmosphere very practical. No ambiance at all. Comfy seating with lower lights would make me come back more often. As it is I use take out all the time.

Tried this place yesterday for lunch. What a great find. Am not really to familiar with many of the dishes but what we did try was excellent. Tried the grape leaves, shwarma and the gyro salad. We also had spanikopitas which were also delicious. Very good food ,prices and service. Will go back soon.

This is our go-to place whenever we're in the mood for good but fast Mediterranean food. Much better food and prices than Daphne's, which is about the same distance from us. The staff is friendly and the food is always fresh and tasty. The shawarmas are great, but the dish that really stands out is their lamb shank. Slow cooked,... More

It's a place where you order at the counter. They gave several tables, but it's really for take out. The Mediterranean menu, which is so common both in Europe, North Africa, and Turkey includes much of the usual fare. Kebobs, Souvlaki, and even Moussaka. My fave here is the Kibbeh. The Dolmas are quite good too. I'm guessing that since... More

I am visiting family in GG and was craving hummus and stuffed grape leaves. I ordered my family 2 combo plates, 2 gyro plates, vegetarian plate (my order) cheese bread (OMG you have to get this!) and baklava. All was cooked to perfection, hummus was delicious, tzatzinki said was spot on, and we will definitely come here again! I did... More

I think Kerostena in on the road to somewhere not so good. The cook that used to be there left and the food now has much to be desired for. The hummus is pasty now and the taste is not what it used to. Same with the beef kabob. I don't think it is filet mignon anymore because it is... More

Impressed by the food taste and quality. Ordered the shish kabob & chicken shawerma and the orders came with hummus, pita, rice and salad. Also tried the yogurt sauce with cucumbers. All the food tasted like "being invited over for dinner" rather than a restaurant entree. I personally would not be interested to eat at the location because they have... More
