I've travelled and eaten all over the Middle East, and eaten Middle Eastern food in most major US metropolitan areas, and the sampling of food I had here was all top notch. Highly recommend the hummus, baba ganoush, & falafel!

I love, the Stephen's beef. When my family comes to town Nicholas' take out is their request. They are vegetarian and love the Mezza platter. The restaurant is great for all types of eaters. Many hearty meat, GF, vegetarian and vegan options. Very easy to avoid dairy too. Their GF naan is really good.

This small, quaint restaurant is worth the visit whether it's the Gresham location or one of the two Portland locations. The pita bread that is brought to the table ahead of time is straight out of the oven and melts in your mouth. The entrée was flavorful. The hummus is creamy and delicious. The table is a bit small for... More

Nicholas is a small restaurant in the heart of Gresham with great Middle Eastern food. To start out, they bring you a huge, hot circle of Naan, placed on a pedestal in the middle of a table. While waiting for the rest of the meal, everyone can rip off hunks to eat, dipped in a sauce. The menu offers a... More

The place is very inviting and the service was excellent. the tables are a little close but ok. Had the lamb plate Which tasted very good but big enough to share. The naan was fresh out of the oven and delicious with the baba ganoush. I would go back again if i lived here

Love the "bowls" with rice base (or palo style w/o), nice selection of meat then a side of kale salad. Excellent lunch for about $10. The pita bread of about 18' diameter is soft, light and warm. The hummus was also very good. I had the lamb kebab and falafel. Everyone enjoyed their food: 90 year old grand parents, teenagers,... More

Holidays are wonderful but when hunger strikes- This is the place to recharge! The menu is varied and the staff will customize your order - especially with food allergies. We have never been disappointed and if we have out of town guests - Nickolas in DT gresham is a must!

I got the kofta kebob which was good. It would have been better if I were to have ordered it less well done, but such is the nature of kebabs. The bread with dipping stuff is fun and the garlic butter makes anything more yummy. I just get a good feeling about this place.
