We've always enjoyed meals here (have probably eaten here 20 times). Tues. Oct. 31 we were disappointed. The signature pita bread, which we always look forward to, was underbaked and not as flavorful as in the past. ????? Breast-meat kabob was very chewy this time....More

Very attentive server, clean tables, great fresh pita/flatbread presented to the table. Lamb and Shawarma platters and chicken pizza, Tahziki and humus very tasty and generous portions. Meat stuffed grape leaves were very good as well. Never got to the upstairs, remodeling must be going...More

Don't judge this place by the exterior, the food is phenomenal! The pita is amazing, fluffy, and huge. We had the hummus (delicious), chicken kabob plate (addicting), falafel (also delicious), and lamb platter (so good!). This place is totally worth a try!

If you like schwarma, this is your place. It's delicious!! Also they give you freshly made lavosh with every order and the hummus is delicious. The service was just ok but the food More than makes up for it. Go go go 😊

A little bit of a wait for a Saturday night.....Tight seating, but OK. Freshly baked bread to start....delicious. Food was great. Was a little surprised that the restaurant could not make a bloody Mary or martini...I would definitely go back..Staff was very nice.

On a cold night we had appetizers including the lentil soup, Baba ganoush and endless flat bread. The smalls, the flavors and sounds make this a special place

Nicholas is a funky restaurant with wonderful food and service. They had a squash hummus that was to die for! The pita bread is a foot in diameter and served piping hot. A favorite place to meet friends.

Nicholas has several restaurants in the Portland area. This location one is my favorite. Kim and I went there for an early dinner and walked away commenting how good it was. We started with the babakanouch (SP?) and they serve you a huge warm pita...More
