This place is in the North Market. I am always on the hunt for a gluten free option and they have a number of great Greek dishes here that are gluten free. I had the spicy chicken on Saffron rice. Chicken was great. Nice and spicy with out being out of control. Rice was tasty. The folks working the counter... More

Get your kabob on! Great Food! They serve salad in the combos instead of rice, which I like! You must be VERY clear on what you are ordering, they often make you the wrong thing.

Was at a volleyball tournament across the street. Looking for some better food than the food court at convention center. Quick walk across the street to North Market and found this great place right inside. The market was bustling. Lots of places with long lines. Firdous not too long. It was delicious! Lamb salad and hummus! So yummy and great... More

Had lunch and it was average. All were dishes I have had many times and while it was good it wasn't exceptional. Would try other options at the Market before I return here.

Walked around columbus and when I walked thru the Market I spotted a beautiful Greek Salad on display. Ended up ordering a small Greek and small Portobello Salad. Took them outside to the picnic tables and they were both great! Five bucks each, can't beat it.

Wanting something lite for dinner, I discovered this place and was disappointed. They offer a large selection of entrees and were willing to accommodate allergy substitutions.
