Tried to go to several other establishments first, but they had insane works. Honestly, I had forgotten about this GEM. Gyros for three of us and a gyro salad for me. Closest I'll get to a European gyro around here! Staff was SO friendly. Service fast. Delicious.

There beef kabobs are excellent. My wife typically orders the Geek salad and falafel. I would recommend trying the place.

Great food at an affordable price. I had the chicken pita and my friend has a gyro. Chicken was well seasoned and the cut of the chicken was all white meat. I recommend this place as a great alternative to chain restaurants.

Stopped in for lunch during my trip to Rochester. Restaurant is not upscale looking from the outside, but is clean and inviting. Service was very good and my server was friendly. She suggested the Greek salad and I was glad I ordered it. Lettuce and all veggies were fresh with great flavor. Food was reasonably priced. Glad I stopped by.

2 spits in view while ordering, gyro meat had a great taste. Service was solid. Caprese salad delightful.

Although Nupa has a humble-looking exterior, their food and service are first-rate. The server was very attentive, friendly, & prompt. Our food came out quickly and hot. Their falafel is excellent, & their pita bread is to die for. Definitely get the hummus & spicy feta but if you may want to ask them to hold the extra olive oil... More

We likely eat here 3 times a month. Everything I've ordered is delicious and the prices are extremely reasonable for the high quality food. You can't go wrong with their gyros or a floretta. Their Greek salad is also perfectly prepared and so satisfying. The staff is friendly and fast and the lunch specials include soda. I don't order fries... More

This is our most frequently visited restaurant in Rochester. Great food that is fast and reasonably priced (especially the lunch prices). The chicken pita and gyro pitas are amazing. I also love the avgolemono (lemon based chicken and rice soup), when I want something small. The sandwiches are okay, but the pitas are what they really excel at, oh and... More

In our first day in Rochester we found this eatery near our hotel. Afterwards considering the paucity of selections and good restaurants in town it was a lucky event shortcomings and all. The food is basic Greek with generous portions of meat in their Gyros whether traditional or of roasted chicken, but their dolmades had no meat just rice and... More

I had a chicken Gyro which was very good. The kebabs were also very good as well as the lemon chicken soup, has a name but I forget it at the moment. The restaurant has one big issues I saw the second time in, there are flies everywhere. It is not their fault I guess but buy some traps guys.... More
