Excellent Greek meals here. I've eaten dinner here twice and both times loved it. Very fresh and flavorful meals. The chicken and potatoes were amazing. Friendly staff. Casual but nicer than basic casual.

Wow this place is a real piece of Greece in NYC. The food is absolutely delicious and authentic Greek. The tzaziki is yummy! Service is friendly and seem a bit shy. Lovely place, thumbs up!

So glad we found this little gem while exploring the area on a cold Saturday. You feel like you're in a special place. We shared a soup, salad and the cheese filled peppers, and everything was delicious.

Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving
immigrant past and its modern transformation into a
beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side
is one of the most dynamic neighbourhoods in the city.
The blocks of tenements that represented the promise
and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience
now command top dollar for new residents. Right next
to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment
