We tried this restaurant in part because it was right next to our hotel, and were pleasantly surprised. The salad and beef/lamb gyros were fresh and really good. The baklava was tasty and not too sweet. The only slightly odd note was serving the gyros in a tortilla, but hey, use what you've got!

Very good, bistro style Greek and Mediterranean food. Don't expect fancy service, but the place makes up for it in yummy food. Ask for the grilled salmon on Greek salad.

I chanced upon this place today and was pleasantly surprised with the place. They had a good array of vegetarian dishes and it was all made fresh in front of you.

They have the best Lamb Gyro I've ever had. I used to gorge on these while in England (Moroccan guy food truck) but this Greek joint is pretty great too!

We were short on time, and stopped in. Immediately we noticed those who were regulars were ordering the same item on the menu -- the lamb gyro's... We ordered, and they arrived quickly. They were delicious, as was the hummus. Reasonably priced.

Gyros gyros is awesome. Friendly staff, great food and decent prices. The mixed plates are the best. Lamb wrap is another favorite

This is one of the only cheaper eats downtown PA. The Gyros ARE very good, and i have had them all over the place. You can sit outside on a warm day and its nice.

I thought ordering a Gyro would be a good choice however it was dry, the pita awful and the mystery meat lamb/beef rubbery, even with additional sauce I couldn't chew it, swallow it or enjoy it. I was served by unfriendly man and when I said it was not edible he reached into his cash register without saying anything, looking... More
