Been here so many times that I know the owners by name. The lamb is to die for, as is the calamari. Very large servings and always made fresh and hot. Greek salad is wonderful as they make their own dressing for it. Nikos and Vicki make their own tzatziki which is enough to come back for alone. My favorite is calamari with extra tzatziki, Greek salad and no potato (the rice is heavenly). If you want a major feed at a moderate price (calamari dinner is $13.95) this is the spot to go. There are other Greek establishments in Mission, but they can't hold a candle to this one.

I was at this place several different times since it opened last June. When it first opened they had a kitchen manager or chef (not sure which) who I met and I truly enjoyed his products. He had a prime rib rub that was to die for and also had a staff who were really excited working with him to bring the place on line.
Since then, I have been there a few times and was told he left the restaurant and that the management has done a lot of changing of the staff. The quality of the food has dropped over my last 2 visits and at my last visit it was so poor that I just left it and paid my bill, then left. I have been a chef and restauranteur for over 45 years and thought that this place would be a great addition to the Mission dining scene, but I am sorry to say that the owner(s) have missed the mark seriously. By losing the guy I met, they have drastically reduced their appeal to this respondent at least.
I am telling all the people I know in the area to avoid eating there. There is a great Greek restaurant just a block and a half east, called Eleni's. Calamari and lamb to die for.
