    Excellent greek food, very friendly the owner and chef. The portions of the appetizers are way too small for what you're paying, but every main course i tried was amazing. Try the octopus

    Authentic Greek food - try the lamb kofta with bulgar. Give the charred octopus a try - you won't be disappointed.

    The three dips appetiser is really good and I couldn't recommend it highly enough. My only sore point was that the seating outside is very uncomfortable.

    The Shakshouka - poached eggs and lamb sausage in a tomato and pepper stew with thick, toasty bread- is maybe the most underrated brunch option in Philly. No meal here is complete without Baklava.

    Definitely get the pumpkin feta dip of they have it. And the tortellini is amazing but rich. If you like hot food ask for the homemade spicy sauce! Not off the charts hot but Delish

    Chef Konstantinos never fails to thrill or delight with authentic tastes of Cyprus. Whether quail or lamb fries, you will do well in heeding his recommendations; bold palates are rewarded here.

    Konstantinos Pitsillides’s straight-to-the-point cooking evokes the Cyprus of his childhood. Example: braised rabbit with basturma, Armenian dried beef cured with garlic, fenugreek, and red pepper.

    Chef Pitsillides keeps beaks and feet on squab whether you like it or not. His flavors and presentation are bold, and his veggie cooking is just as good as the omnivore stuff. [Eater 38 Member]

    Flatbread tasting was okay, but there's an appetizer that has honey and other things that is AMAZING. Ravioli was only okay.
