Ordered through Skip the Dishes. Spanokpita, dolmades, keftides. All excellent! Food arrived hot and fresh so I presume it was made to order. Have also dined in and had an equally good experience.

Had late lunch here with good, friendly & prompt service. Leg of lamb was delicious, hot & large portioned with sides. Pizza was average but hot & toppings plentiful. We'd return here any time.
