Granted I did decide to eat here because of the once a month Harem Night “open mike” style belly dance floor show. I checked out the reviews and noticed people liked the food. There are many reviews online.
We arrived at 7 p.m., mixed group of 8 ladies. Some eat meat some don’t, some will do eggs and dairy, some don’t.
We started with the large appetizer sampler which had greek filo pastries with spinach and feta, another kind had mostly cheese. There was hummus, pita, kalamata olives, that yogurt cucumber dip ( which I do not want to spell), dolmathes, ( stuffed grape leaves) lemon sauce and some Feta chunks. We also ordered the flaming cheese and yelled “OPA!” when it was lit.
Everyone liked all the appetizer food, now really, how often does that happen? I went on to order vegetable souvlaki, which came with rice pilaf and some great sauteed veggies. I think we ordered more pit and olives too. It was all good. our server was attentive. Because we ordered so many appetizers to try, it wasn’t inexpensive. I am sure there are ways to make it more affordable.
The ladies in the floor show varied from beginners to professionals, everyone seemed well rehearsed, costumed beautifully. The audience was respectful and very supportive.
The only unfortunate thing was that they had huge “sports bar” style TV’s everywhere. Some were playing baseball directly over dancers’ heads. I complained but no one seemed to know how to turn them off. Since the audience and the whole restaurant appeared to be family and friends of the dancers that night, I thought this was sad for them. I was assured later that this is not the usual backdrop.
I found plenty of high quality vegetarian options, enjoyed myself and I will go again–
