Tucked away this rec by a fellow lister and we were passing today and saw an empty parking space in front of the restaurant so we gave it a try. Billed by a Hound as Greek, its more 'Middle Eastern' with all the usual tabbouli, humous etc. Mme Zoe ordered a gyro with beef and lamb and prounouned it the BEST she has eaten in the US and was at least as good as the last one she ate in the alleys of Myconos many moons ago. Bread was homemade, yoghurt dressing superb, lots of meat, tomato, salad and a hearty serving of the home made pita, with a side salad, all for $5.95. I ordered the falafel sandwich which was excellent, deep flavor and kind of glommed together so that the dressing, salad and filling were happily married; could only eat half it was so filling. Big bill too: $12.50 for two lunches and half a sandwich to take home. Nice space, good service.

Green Olive,
Wilshire east of Bundy on the North side
in the shopping mall strip of Ross, and a string of restaurants.
Parking on the street if the parking fairy is in your corner or in the Ross indoor parking.
