    Delicious! Gluten free friendly to the max. You order inside then wait for your food to be ready then you seat yourself-- pretty nice to save on a tip so you can spend more on good food!

    Best falafel in DC. Great salads. Chicken souvlaki is very good as well.

    The Vegetable Meze, with sides of pita, and hummus, is a tasty, light, and healthy meal.

    The Zorba's combination platter is very good. Yeah, the 2nd floor is better to sit.

    The half carafe is enough for two. ;)

    Amazing lentil soup.

    Ordered a gyro so I could compare it to other Greek restaurants. Hands down, one of the best I've had. Very flavorful. This place is going on my favs list.

    Q Roberson · January 9, 2013
  • Seth R.

    Sometimes like now makes me very sick. Not sure of cleanliness here.

    Chickpea salad is like taboulleh with chickpeas. Lovely on a hot summer day.

    Akash Jayaprakash · October 2, 2012

    Get the gyro. Soooo good.

    Eric · September 25, 2012

    Delphi salad

    Jessie Hwang · August 23, 2012
  • Daniel F.

    Great place to get drunk cheap. The carafe of Greek house white is a steal and delicious. Stay away from familiar grapes like moscato. Try moschefilero. The Greeks do dry white like no one else.

    Daniel Ferro · June 22, 2012
  • Charley

    So I can't say this for certain because it has been tasty before, but the falafel they have now is probably the most terrible thing I've ever eaten. Period.

    Charley · June 18, 2012
  • Daniel R.

    Arnáki sto Foύrno just might be the best lamb you'll ever taste in your life.

    Daniel Roestorf · May 25, 2012

    When you order hummus, they give you a lot! Order an extra pita or two ;-) *...

    Phoenix Robles · February 8, 2012
  • Lolly W.

    Try the fasolia platter - so delicious!

    Lolly W · December 10, 2011
  • Washingtonian Magazine

    If you’re after something quick, the excellent pork souvlaki wrapped with feta in warm, soft pita is the way to go—it’s one of our favorite sandwiches in the area

    Washingtonian Magazine · October 21, 2011
  • Ferchichi A.

    The best greec restaurant in DC near Dupont circle

    Ferchichi Ahmed · September 5, 2011
  • Mackenzie M.

    Try the white bean dip

    Mackenzie Morgan · September 4, 2011
  • Ria H.

    Sit upstairs! Nice view :)

    Ria Henares · August 12, 2011

    Combo plate.

    Spencer Hughes · August 9, 2011
  • Constantino D.

    The tzaziki here is one of the (very) few things I miss about DC.

    Constantino Diaz-Duran · August 3, 2011
  • dre b.

    The Greek fries is a must! Tenderly fried in peanut oil.

    dre baly · July 22, 2011

    Best budget Greek food in DC

    The fish is oddly listed in the vegetarian menu, but SO good.

    Huma · April 24, 2011
  • Mike P.

    Sit on the 2nd floor. Great view!

    Mike Petrucci · March 6, 2011

    Try the Yero platter and get a side of rice. Amazing!

    Mike Petrucci · March 6, 2011

    Italian sandwich rules. I know it's a Greek place, but still…

    David Copeland · December 27, 2010
  • Julio V.

    Great combo plate...the white rice is delish!

    Julio Valeriano · December 3, 2010
  • Karen J.

    First time and it was great! Recommend getting the Zorba combo platter.

    Karen Jose · November 13, 2010

    Souvlaki or Gyro Plate. You will not regret - especially when paired with a pitcher.

    Maxwell Z · October 31, 2010
  • Lauren K.

    Great patio and reasonably priced food, it's the one place my mom and I can agree on when she visits. I love that the beer always comes in a frosted mug and all of the fries are superb.

    Lauren Karasek · October 27, 2010
  • Aru S.

    I found the falafel sandwich to be overrated (it was too mushy). The chicken dishes are well cooked, though.

    Aru S · October 2, 2010
  • Amelia

    The vegetarian platter and spanakopita here is amazing.

    Amelia · September 3, 2010
  • Leanne J.

    Best falafel sandwich I've ever had.

    Leanne Jakubowski · May 15, 2010
  • Ellie M.

    Authentic Greek food that is naturally healthy & satisfying. I used to eat here weekly with a group of friends - everyone found something they liked, and there are lots of vegetarian options. Read more
