    Best meal I've had in a while, in Richmond or otherwise. One piece of advice: Don't stick to status quo Greek fare when ordering. You're missing out if you don't explore new dishes here.

    Sure you could make reservations, or you could just roll the dice and sit at the bar or community table and end up sharing your spanikopita and saganaki with your favorite city council member.

    The service wasn't very good & they ran out of the fish by 7:30. They asked us to leave bc someone was waiting for our table. Don't ask to add shrimp to a salad either. Those are just for dinner.

    Amazing food and the staff is rather friendly. Tried a couple of things from the "Meze" which are starters (rather big in size!) and all the choices were pretty good.
