Naive maybe, but I didn't recognize this as a Greek restaurant until we sat down and read the menu.
The food was fabulous, the restaurant buzzing with that upbeat 'event' feel that a popular restaurant has and the aroma in the air was delicious to say the very least.
The hit of the night, after a delicious meal, was the heavenly flavor KNEFE very Yum! (no joke)
Only one criticism related to service, we wish place little bigger other than that its nice comtemporary restaurant

i discovered this place by a coincidence :)
we thought were going to typhoon me and my girlfriend we entered the door ,we were kind of suprised because place is chanced to greek mediterranean kitchen so quick.
and we decide to give go because we love mediterranean food.we were well welcome and seated by the waiter i think he was called GLIP and hes brother FATE ( funny really glip has british accent, fate has american accent both are brothers)
anyway we ordered their ..mum's... made soup lentil soup which absoluletly awesome 5 out 5 and the bread oh my got ( im not joking one of best restaurant bread ) we ordered appetizers lahmcun,tzatski and kalamari they were just right finely made ...we were full already but we ordered enteree's too because i have nice and big belly :):) and i was thinking if the appetizers that good i couldnt imagene how the entree's would be !
so we have ordered beyti and alexander it was again absoluletly outstanding...especi ally BEYTI never had anything like that first time ( it wont be last time for sure) and ALEXANDER i had so many places but boys dad's made alexander became the best i have to to say .glip gave us a kunefe dessert on the house ( which i love so much ) i eat regularly middle east style kunefe which was with rose water after trying glip compliment i believe middle east kunefe sucks..this is the real kunefe
i always say this... family operation business you can not go wrong. this people are built quiet nice restaurant here in the heart of castro street nice and clean, decoration is a bit different i mean very nice simply unique place..we will definetely go back there .and i will tell all of my friends to go there.we got to support place like this ..we wish them best business...

This is not a place I'd recommend anyone go for dinner based on my experience last night. The decor (and rice droppings on my chair before I sat down) alone might be enough to keep me from coming back, but the service - though well intentioned - was pretty deplorable. Poor communication, very slow (esp considering we were the only group in the restaurant), and the waiter actually took a call on his mobile phone while he was serving us.

When I first walked in a couple nights ago I thought ""oh dear""... but I was very wrong. The food is very good. Just spicy enough, very flavorful, and normal portion sizes. We ordered the full dinner, which I can never finish, and I had chicken tikka masala while boyfriend had the lamb korma. Both sauces looked so similar but the layers of flavors were quite different and equally wonderful. Excellent side dishes and creamy kheer for dessert, a favorite. The best part, though, was the tacky tacky tacky fake flower arrangements that were everywhere! Anywhere they could stick a cheap fake rose they did. I had just as much fun picking out my favorite tacky arrangement as I did eating their wonderful food! Bonus, they had Bob Marley tunes playing while we ate. The ultimate in wacky. I'll definitely be back.
