First time here and let me say I probably will go again. I am no expert on Greek/Lebanes food, but here is my take - tried a few things only: PROS: Excellent Falafel - really liked this - they did pour the tahini on top, which by the time I ate them they were a little soggy, too bad. They... More

The restaurant is owned and run by the Ayoub family from Lebanon. The food was authentic, delicious, and our kids even ate without complaining! They offer a combo platter that worked well for us.

This food always disappoints. It is usually dry and overlooked and the tables are grimy. I've honestly not had a good meal here. I have been multiple times thinking that maybe I should order something different. Nah - I'll drive the extra mile to Greek Deli where they know how to cook roasted potatoes.

I am very particular about the food I eat. I am a vegetarian who also eats fish once in a while. Although the food took a while to prepare, it was hot and very good. Nothing was plain or too spicy. it was a wonderful experience that I look forward to repeating again. The waiter was very helpful in helping... More

This is a small restaurant with tasty mediterranean food. I eat here at least monthly. The eggplant lasagna is my favorite entree.

Very helpful with special diets, I think it as only the bread I couldn't have. Good mediteranean food, Greek salad etc. Good service and excellent value.

This is a wonderful little cafe near NASA that is great for lunch or dinner. We went for lunch and I ordered a gyro that was fabulous and my co-worker ordered the Moussaka. I'm have never heard of Moussaka but it looked amazing and my co-worker let me steal a bite. It reminds me of a Greek lasagna, with multiple... More

I am of Lebanese descent and my mother was a great cook. This restaurant has very good food. The owners are courteous and the kibi is outstanding. Don't miss out on the baba ganoush.

We stopped in for a quick dinner during the week. Server was very nice and explained a lot about their menu and the cuisine offered. I really enjoyed the Mythos Greek beer they carry. The Moussaka is great, and has a sweet flavor. Rice and pita were very fresh. Tzatziki sauce I really liked as it was fresh and not... More

My Greek brother in law has been very sick and often cannot eat. Twice now I have gotten a big feast from this charming café to take home to him. Even though he cannot eat much, just a few bites of the Spanakopita or Moussaka gives him such pleasure. He said that it reminds him of growing up when his... More
