NOT AS GOOD AS TABOULI'S! – Go there and you'll see why. I don't know why people even compare one to the other. The food isn't as authentic as Tabouli's BY FAR, and it's more cramped and fast-food-like. Try Tabouli's.
Nice people, great food – I JUST discovered this place. DELICIOUS food and nice staff. Great spot for lunch. I am hooked on the grilled chicken pita. YUMMY
Outstanding, quick, fresh fare – Tried Kalamata's for the first time...will be going back often. Despite a line out the door, service was fast and friendly. Menu offered standard Mediterranean dishes as well as several unique ones. Had the special of the night, which involved grilled tuna cooked expertly. Enjoyed the live music, which was unobtrusive to the dining experience.
Excellent, Authentic Mediterranean Food. – Excellent friendly service even though you have to order at the counter and help yourself to a table. There is no wait-staff. Food is rich in flavor. Deserts are authentic Mediterranean. Live music on Saturday night is also great. Worth going to if you want a great Mediterranean meal with little frills and low cost.
I love this place... – I have liked everything that i've ever ordered! just don't try to order while you are talking on a cell phone! he wont take your order until you hang up!
Great - and Bring Your Own Wine – First time experience last weekend and it was great. Reasonably priced and friendly staff. Good portion sizes. One of the few places you can bring your own wine - great for saving money!
best Tomato Basil Florentine soup , as addictive as heroine. – Great food all around, consistent quality each time you visit. Friendly staff and great service. If you go on monday get the special, grilled shrimp with greek salad. Gyros are good size and packed with meat.
Best Greek & More – We love Kalamata's so much, our family makes a weekly pilgrimage from our home in congested Cool Springs to equally-congested Green Hills to eat Mehar's wonderful food. After moving from Chicago, we were grateful to find this Mediterranean jewel. We tend to favor the daily specials, but also love, love, love the Grilled Chicken Pita's, Hummus, Falafel, standard Gyro's, and outstanding Baklava. Their salads are quite generous, and (like all of their food) fresh and healthy. Mehar and his family of employees make the place cheerful and fun.
Pedestrian – This is a tough call. There are real highlights - the hummus and falafel were excellent, the stuffed grape leaves were also tasty. But the kafta was dull and the set-up frustrating. No signage, no help forthcoming and cattle car seating. "I've got a secret." is not a well respected strategy for seating diners or presenting service. A friend recommend I come here, but I didn't try the specific things he recommended. The up and down quality of the meal (vegetarian good, meat uninspired) makes it perfectly possible that he had a great meal. The atmosphere inside is boxy and unpleasant.
Discriminating diners hungry for hummus find welcome relief in Green Hills. – In Short
This bright little storefront cluttered with cafe tables bustles with energy. You'll watch with awe as chef-owner Mehar Fawaz glides gracefully behind the counter keeping order and chatting with customers, all while stuffing a lamb gyro and plating falafel. The Mediterranean menu features customary falafel-gyro-tabouleh fare with a twist. Generous salads boast plenty of just-cut romaine and veggies tossed with Greek vinaigrette. Warm gyros bulge with spicy meat, crisp greens and cool cucumber sauce.
