We have been here several times. When you walk in it can be a little confussing we're not sure if were supposed to seat ourselves or wait for them to seat us. The servings are huge, the plates are big. So we usually order one and share it. They have tahini its so delicious.

Lots of unique food with wonderful flavors. We live in the area and had never been there. What a treat. The only downside to us is the bright lighting.

It was my first time to eat here. The food was superb. I love the kubz with hummous and the zatr with zaitoun oil. The laham shawarma was delicious. But the tahini tasted like mayo.

I have liked this place since they opened their first restaurant on Grand Ave. However, since their popularity has soared their prices have gone up too, so it isn't as inexpensive as it used to be. But the food is still great!

I've travelled and eaten all over the Middle East, and eaten Middle Eastern food in most major US metropolitan areas, and the sampling of food I had here was all top notch. Highly recommend the hummus, baba ganoush, & falafel!

I love, the Stephen's beef. When my family comes to town Nicholas' take out is their request. They are vegetarian and love the Mezza platter. The restaurant is great for all types of eaters. Many hearty meat, GF, vegetarian and vegan options. Very easy to avoid dairy too. Their GF naan is really good.

This small, quaint restaurant is worth the visit whether it's the Gresham location or one of the two Portland locations. The pita bread that is brought to the table ahead of time is straight out of the oven and melts in your mouth. The entrée was flavorful. The hummus is creamy and delicious. The table is a bit small for... More

Nicholas is a small restaurant in the heart of Gresham with great Middle Eastern food. To start out, they bring you a huge, hot circle of Naan, placed on a pedestal in the middle of a table. While waiting for the rest of the meal, everyone can rip off hunks to eat, dipped in a sauce. The menu offers a... More
