I had a Swish Burger and 2 regular slices of pizza and they were outstanding. I will definitely be returning. It's a great friendly environment.

We slipped in here for a quick lunch while we waited on our Circle Line cruise. After the Gyro and the Greek Lasagna, I didn't want to leave. This place is the real-deal. The baklava reminded me of an old family friend's from when I was a kid. This family is a blessing to that community.

We had the biggest pizza and a burger delivered to our hotel room upon arrival in New York after a long journey! Amazing Pizza, Amazing Burger...nothing more to say. You HAVE to have the meat feast pizza, you just have to!

After my trip on the circle line I wanted a quick meal. This place is a 3 minute walk from the circle line box office. The pizza crust and sauce are top notch. I added a bunch of toppings. The milk shakes are really good also. I loved reading the story about the restaurant. What a great history! This is... More

Nice clean place close to javits. Got a gyro and while it was pricier than a street vendor it was better quality. If you are looking to get off your feet and eat it's a nice place with nice staff.

Reasonable, home cooking style Greek food. The waitress was very helpful with our meal options. The salad was excellent, but overall, not the best food we had in NYC. "A" score for service!

We wanted the "New York pizza" experience, and this place supplied it! Delicious!! Great service, too. Plug for the Westway Diner for breakfast and lunch!! Another New York experience you should not pass by!

We experienced New York pizza for the first time. We don't have anything close to this good in California. Supposedly the water is what makes it great.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
