Taziki's Mediterranean Cafe - Alpharetta Georgia

You can find this location of Taziki's Mediterranean Cafe at 5306-B Windward Parkway, Alpharetta, GA 30004 - this is the center space along a shopping center near the Windward Home Depot. Parking is along the front and in the lot between buildings - there are several choices for food in the same shopping center including Nahm Thai and the very good Paradise Biryani Pointe. The exterior and interior are a bit modernist with classic European-Mediterranean hints. There's a row representing the beer selection on the counter where you order.





I had little expectation regarding this restaurant chain - it was offered up as a choice by extended family and i had basically heard nothing about it previously. From what I could gather online, it sounded much like Zoe's Kitchen and in fact is very similar, with more of a Greek slant to the food, and perhaps a bit less stress on the healthiness of the cuisine (but this is Mediterranean so it's a bit of a non sequitur). This is a fast-casual restaurant where you order at the counter and you're presented with your choices once prepared. One standout is the beer selection, which includes some craft that you don't usually see in places like this including several from Monday Night Brewing and the exceptional locally produced Hop Dang Diggity by Alpharetta's own Jekyll Brewing.









The menu is fairly basic with your typical Greek favorites - for appetizers we ordered the Hummus and the Mezedes Platter (which included Hummus and Dips with Dolmades and pita).



For dinner the two standouts were the Chargrilled Lamb Feast (which had beautiful chunks of seasoned lamb at the bargain price of $12.49) and the vegetarian Grilled Veggie Plate - I could easily have felt vary satisfied with the latter but was very glad to order the former.






In all the entire experience was exceptional - from the ambiance to the service, top notch. If you get a chance to experience Taziki's make sure you do.
