  • Make sure to wear walking shoes! There are two sides to this street and you should see both. All types of shopping and eating to do so take your wallet. Almost reminds me of a Chinatown where everythi...  more »

  • This place gets more colorful at night, and is a great place to visit for a cheesesteak at Jim's and/or a slice of pizza at Lorenzo's. Walking up and down the street is a must and at the end there is ...  more »

  • 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.
  • One of the better Greek restaurants in Philly. Small menu but well executed. Small cozy dining room. If you got the taste for greek, give this place a try.
  • Soooooo goooooooood... a must eat!
  • Friendly service, but subpar food. Would not recommend.
  • Great Greek menu and overall quality service with really good meals
