After bemoaning the fact there was no longer any good Greek fare to be found in Detroit, a friend suggested we check out new Hellas in Farmington-a new generation of a long time Greektown favorite. We read the conflicting reports on trip advisor and other sites so we weren't sure what to expect. From the time I called for reservation till we were walking out the door after dining, it was a wonderful experience. It was a little quiet being lunch service on a Sunday. There were a couple big parties going I think showers, a few families with young loud children, so we asked to be seated on the other side of the restaurant in the quiet booths. We were immediately greeted by a busboy serving water and then quickly after that waitress Tina arrived. Cheerful helpful with great suggestions we ordered a wonderful battle of Roditas-classic Greek inexpensive rose.
We ordered grape leaves with lemon sauce, and lemon rice soup which I can't pronounce :-) for appetizers, both were exceptional. We then moved on to the new hella trio which consists of spinach pie, pastitsio, and moussaka with green beans rice pilaf and peas, easily a portion large enough for two maybe three people.! My husband ordered the Gyros plate which was the tastiest and freshest we've ever had. It seems like we brought 90% of the meal home in containers. Everyone was cheerful and helpful even the owners who inquired of our experience as they were sharing a cigar outside. I would definitely recommend checking it out, we will be back soon.

Had a dinner there with our family, the food was "very tired" I think tinned vegetables the appetizers were OK if a bit basic but the main courses were very average.

The decor was nice, it was the previous restaurant Morels, which did the refurbish and this was basically unchanged. The staff tried hard but the overall effect was of a place, past it's prime.

It's a pity really with such high turnover in restaurants it would be nice to have a good one to add to the list but I would bet this one won't be here next year.

Time and again the food was delicious and plentiful. The service was outstanding. We especially appreciated our server, George. We are always welcomed by the friendly staff. Very enjoyable experience for our family. We are looking forward to a bridal shower and a wedding rehearsal dinner at New Hellas.

Had a belated birthday lunch. Food was deicious - grilled octopus appetizer, chicken lemonata and perch with potatoes & green beans. Service was phenomenal - Carolyn was great. She sang a great rendition of Happy Birthday too! I will definitely be back again - so many dishes sounded good.

The service was awful, we sat for over 20 minutes for the waitress to come to our table just to take our drink order and then we did not see here for another 15 minutes. There was a table of Greek people next to us that the entire wait staff was fawning over and it seemed to us that they really didn't care about our table. We will never be going back to this restaurant again.
