The Fat Greek’s affordable fare worth the buzz

I haven't seen this much enthusiasm for a restaurant in a long time, and foodies seem to be mystified by it all, harrumphing that they can make better hummus and moussaka, no doubt with their eyes closed. I know where they're coming from, but for the majority who can't be bothered by the search for lamb or spending any time in the kitchen at all, The Fat Greek is a real treat and arrives at a time when people want to make healthier dining choices without sacrificing meat altogether. » read more

Aloha Update


The restaurant is actually pretty nice.  It’s reminds me of Kakaako Kitchen at Ward.  Why?  It turns out people don’t actually serve you.  You just purchase the dish at the counter, then when your order is ready, your beeper will vibrate and you just go and pick up the dishes yourself.  They even have a fountain drink machine if you order soda. » read more
