Went for late night eats with family. Good place to take kids. If you like garlic, you'll love the hummus. Friendly staff. Fair prices but portions kinda small.

It's been awhile since we've eaten here, but tonight we went back after having some hummus/gyro cravings. We are SO glad we did! Everything from the plating to the amount of food to the taste was great. We asked the cashier if they changed the recipes or menu and she let us know that they had a new chef. The... More

We found this place last year on the bus route to St. Louis Heights. It has the best Greek food! The lamb is fantastic! We tried both types for main dish -rack of Lamb and Lamb Shanks. The Gyros are fantastic! We order the Gyro combo which has Greek Fries, Greek Salad, and ice tea refillable drink I think it... More

First of all, I am not a big fan of restaurants that insist on tipping prior to service. Tipping upon ordering food is premature. TIPS=To Insure Proper Service. I only "TIP" after being properly served. McDonalds doesn't do it. I knocks points for that alone. Food here is Mediocre at best. If you are thinking of getting the Souvlaki, do... More

This place has great potential. Good location, parking; however, it is a little on the shabby side. My stool was about to collapse, and unfortunately the cashier also waits the tables and seemed stressed out. I did not even get any silverware for my lamb. Ok and pricey at that for Greek food ($30 for french fries, a salad and... More

After reading some of the reviews I was very hesitant on going. However, my group of friends INSISTED that we go.... I'm very thankful that we did. Their service was very good and the food quality was beyond expectations. Previously I've only had Greek food from a little Shack....If you know what I mean. Never again as I'll be going... More

This was one of my favorite casual restaurants in Honolulu. The food was good, it was outside, you could BYOB. The service never was great but it was passable. However over the past year the quality of the food has really gotten bad. The gyros are no longer cooked on a rotisserie but carved up and grilled. The salad dressing... More

Yum, yum, yum. What more is there to say. Everything I've tried at The Fat Greek is yummy. Even sitti g next a busy street, the environment feels like a little bit of Greece. The hummus is fresh and the gyros never dissapoint; love their tzatziki. Now for the baklava....

This was our go-to place for Greek food. Casual atmosphere, good prices, pay at the counter and they buzz you when it's ready. Parking (expensive) across the street. We went last week for early dinner. DH had falafel, we shared a salad, I had souvlaki. About halfway through the salad, DH takes a bite of the falafel, chews twice and... More
