Good service...and quick made to order food. There is a mini mart in the place, so may be a good idea to select your drink from there and add it to the meal....more choices!

Traditional Greek/Mid East mixes with new in a nice but no frills and casual setting. The Greek fries are simple, but great. A must get. They're fries smothered in a delicious creamy white sauce and crumbled feta. It may not sound like much but the fries are warm and golden and they don't skimp on the topping. Trust me, from a seasoned poutine eater, you want to get the Greek fries if you like any of these ingredients. I thought about going outside the box for an entree but I wanted their take on a gyro first. Top class gyro. The portion is large, the lamb is cooked and spiced to perfection, the pita is good and the cucumber sauce has the cool, creamy flavor that is essential. But the lamb shines the brightest on your gyro. It should be the cornerstone of any gyro and you have no doubt you're doing it right when eating this. Chicken kabobs as well as couscous and hummus come highly recommended as well. They are flavorful and portions again are filling.

Finally reasonable prices and value can be had here. If you are looking at the quality to price ratio, I'm not sure you can find a better value anywhere really. Then add in the fact that they aren't chintzy on the portions, there's no reason to complain. Highly recommended.

Three of us went for lunch and really enjoyed our food. We had spinach pie (delicious), gyro plate and gyro pita. The gyro plate is huge; enough for two people. They have the largest assortment of baklava I've ever seen including pistachio, pecan, cashew, chocolate hazelnut, and more! Friendly people, great service, clean restaurant, and one of the most interesting little food stores one can imagine. I love the yogurt drink.

Fries with feta are amazing!! Gyro's are what you'd expect and very tasty as well. Atmosphere is cafeteria style no frills. Great place for a quick lunch.
