Food is very good and reasonably priced. The chicken is delicious and the baklava even better. Lots of choices for healthy eating and nice and clean restaurant.

Usually go here after church on sundays. Not too busy. Staff is friendly and can explain everything on the menu. Portions aren't small but not insanely huge, unless you get the platter. They have a garlic spread that is to die for.
