Came here to eat and the food was extremely good! The baba ghanoush is to my taste, the very best I have ever had! The hummus is also delicious and the falafel very good. This was my first time having bakdonsieh and it was also very good! The meats were as good as they can get and the pita bread... More

A small Greek restaurant with very tasty Greek food. The prices are good. I fell in love with a Greek pastry filled with pistacios. This is a very casual place I think most will enjoy.

We were really in the mood for Mediterranean food and were impressed with the number of great reviews this place has gathered. We had definitely passed this place before but never stopped in because it looks a bit too dark and there is rarely anyone in there--but this just goes to show, don't judge a book by it's cover!

Your visit will be longer than you think because you have to go through the huge menu to figure out the best food option for you! Very popular and almost always a wait, but worth it for the food and drinks. Huge, so noisy. Best area to eat in is the bar!

I always loved the Turkish cuisine and found this place in the middle of Walnut Creek. The place is quite simple and the walls inside depicts an interesting graffiti style images of the places around the Mediterranean Sea. I had a lovely kebab chicken sided by the usual hummus portion. Also the lamb meal was super delicious but a bit... More

The falafel deluxe is our go-to option with extra feta. Besides the falafel in this wrap they add potatoes and eggplant. I get eggplant, no potatoes, and my husband gets potatoes and no eggplant. They aim to please!

After shopping in walnut creek I picked up a couple of chicken gyros. With spicy sauce. Really good. I recommend this place as a quick bite or take home.
