Fun neighborhood place with good food and good service. Has outdoor seating, which is quieter than indoors. Cocktails good and full bar available. There is a belly dancer, who isnt actually a belly dancer, more of somebody wearing the costume and dancing a heavily hipped dance around the tables. Still, it was fun and entertaining. DJ was stuck in the 1980's, though, even though the people were ready to dance. He did take requests, but playing so much old old music pretty much cleared the place out. Too bad; we would have stayed later and had more drinks, but just couldn't. Get that music happening and this will be a great place!

The most consistent Greek restaurant in Atlanta. The roast lamb is fall off the bone perfect as is the lemon chicken and the "simple" gyro plate is the best in Atlanta.

We almost always enjoy going here to get our "gyro fix." Not on this occasion. It was obvious that the gyro meat we were served had been on the spit far too long (probably because of lack of diners). It was charred and tough. On the positive side, the greek salad served with the gyro plate was farm-to-table fresh and delicious. Service was OK On this occasion, we would not have recommended the restaurant to a friend. We hope it was a one off

This was the 1st of this culinary experience for most of our party of 7. Our reservation was at 6, so they were not busy yet. Our waiter was very attentive. We had a range of drinks from the bar, and no one was disappointed. Since we were headed to a show, we skipped appetizers. Everyone’s food was delicious, even the veggies were well seasoned and no one left hungry. We will definitely be back.

Overall it was just an ok experience. The service was ok as the food did take a long time to come out and the waitress forgot to put in 3 of the 4 appetizers. We sat outside under some kind of contraption that was riddled with big black ants that were crawling on me the entire evening. The food was good but it could have been better as it was just warm and not hot after waiting for such a long period of time.

I had so much fun interacting with the staff and the belly dancers! The staff was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and offered helpful suggestions. Great place for good food and entertainment.
The lamb chops are well seasoned and tender. I truly enjoyed my evening. I will definitely be back! Opa!

The food was okay in taste but pricey for the Greek and Italian offerings, the service was average but could have been better considering there were only two other couples were at the restaurant, maybe because it was Easter Sunday. I most likely would not visit again or recommend but wanted to try something different in my visit to Atlanta.

Took our daughter there for her 21st birthday and we had a blast. It was not too crowded at all, we sat at the tables on the covered patio and just had a blast. The service was fantastic, lots of energy everywhere, lots of OPA! shouting and celebrating!

The food was good, although I did not like the hummus (which was quite surprising for a Greek restaurant), but the Tzatziki was incredible. The Gyro's were moist and the plates were filled with lots of meat. The Lamb Shank was fantastic and the meat practically fell off the bone.

Wish I had tried some of the fish dishes, they looked fantastic. The belly dancer was quite creative and added to the fun.
Overall, we were thrilled with our choice of this restaurant to celebrate a great event! Thanks to everyone there for making it so special!

Service was very good, in part because of very few patrons on a weeknight.
Food is just OK, but with relatively high prices, it's not good value.

Went for a birthday and this was the perfect establishment. The staff was phenomenal! We had an early reservation so a few items that take longer to prepare we’re not ready yet, but the server was ready with great recommendations as subs. This place is perfect for large groups and they make you feel like part of the family.

Fun, lively place that on weekends, from my one experience, is a great place for any type of group celebration. Couples and smaller groups should be ready to match or at least appreciate the kitschy fun. We did and we had belly dancing good time.

The food was good; the only issue is the service. Although it was Valentine’s Day, we went early so it wasn’t very crowded. Despite that, the service was SLOW! Our server went table to table and would walk right by without stopping. So I’d have to flag him down whenever we needed something. Then he’d say okay, but then he’d walk past us 1 or 2 more times and I’d remind him of what we needed. We were ready for the check and the same pattern continued and after a while he finally brought it. I looked down and he had written his own 22% gratuity! I just laughed because I assume they do this on holidays. Plus that’s about what I would have tipped anyway. But the idea that we’re forgotten about constantly and you write a $23 tip on there!? 😂 crazy...

Took my mom here for her birthday. She had a blast. Food was ridiculously tasty as well. The only thing that threw me for a loop was all the napkin throwing 😂. Wonderful place if you want great music and high energy wait staff.

Great food, great atmosphere, and a great experience! They had a belly dancer performing throughout the evening which was a nice change. If you’re looking for a quiet, low-key dinner, this is not the place. This was a fun place with great food!
