Dinner with family was great. The appetizers and main course were delicious authentic Greek fare. The waiter was helpful in selecting the best dishes, because it's "all Greek to me". On busy nights a dude in the parking lot will direct you to the parking garage around the back of the strip mall that contains the restaurant. Some nights the... More

Good food, great fun! This restaurant is in the heart of the galleria area. It has belly dancing show and music. I recommend it if you want to have a good time. Also the Greek food is good.

I was attending a conference and wanted to eat near hotel. I happened upon this place and had a memorable meal of house salad, stuffed flounder with Greek potatoes and vegetables, along with delicious bread and olive oil. I would highly recommend. There was even a singer on a Thursday night.

The Food is Great, atmosphere is great.. Feels like you are a part of the family with the wait staff.. Belly dancers on Fridays a and Saturdays. Always a pleasure with the staff. Celebrates a birthday there with family and friends and they loved it! Would definitely recommend.

Happened upon this restaurant by chance and had a great time. The food and service were excellent, and on a Saturday night, we lucked into live music and a belly dancer.

The grilled octopus was the highlight of our meal. The salad advertised as “Greek” contained such odd ingredients as romaine lettuce. The sampler meal was tasty but was too heavy for a typical Greek meal. Good news, they have Retsina (Greek white wine).
