  • This is an eventful strip with numerous options for food, drinks and even some unorthodox shopping! I actually went into my first legit sex store on this street and it was pretty cool. Nice philly che...  more »
  • A long walk down and back,but art is everywhere. The alleys are full of mosaics, the walls are murals, the shops are colorful and interesting. The Magic Garden between 10 and 11th Streets is fantastic...  more »

  • In my opinion, I can't imagine a gyro better than here. They use the best pita, the meat is sliced right in front of you and we'll it's just the best gyro. They do have other excellent food. Get the gyro.
  • I've been going to this place since I was a little kid. The food is always delicious! It never disappoints!
  • Best Greek restaurant in the Philadelphia area, hands down. Can't wait to go back!
  • Service was horrible. Our server Alisha was complaining about a friend and me to her supervior on the floor just behind us all because I said the menu stated that it was lamb not chicken when I ordered. She complained again when my friend told me about what she said, "Oh god now another one is bitching." Then again when our friend paid the bill, she complained it was only a 5 dollar tip again tonight. Her attitude should tell you why she's only getting that much; if I was paying I would of gave her nothing.
  • Recently had dinner here with a party of 5 of us. When we get to Philly, we like to take in some good, ethnic food, and we enjoy Greek food, so wanted to try this place based upon some reviews on Google. The food was a mixed bag. We had a sampler appetizer plate (a whole lot of different dips/spreads to be eaten with pita bread, and generally, we liked most everything on the platter (save the beets), so things started out really well. But when the dinner plates came, that's when it became disappointing. I had a combo with souvlaki & gyros, which was accompanies by rice and turli. The souvlaki was okay, but nothing flavorful. The gyros tasted highly processed, and not very flavorful at all. Most of us at the table had the gyros, and we were just not impressed. One person in our group had the spanakopita (spinach pie) and another had vegan stuffed tomatoes (originally ordered stuffed peppers, but they were out, so they offered to substitute stuffed tomatoes). Both turned out to be mediocre dishes, according to those who ordered them. Not bad tasting, but nothing that makes you want to come back. The service was excellent. Our waitress was very friendly, and took care of us, refilling beverages quickly, etc.... The place itself is kind of a cool little restaurant. They have take out service out front on South Street, but if you walk in through the side door, you get to walk by the kitchen, which gives you plenty of wonderful aromas, and gets your hopes up for a great meal. Walking to the back, you enter a very small dining area, which is cozy and inviting. If they worked a little on improving the food here, this would be a great little place to go.
