Tried it for the first time. Enjoyed it very much. The service was good and the food was too. Everyone in my party of five enjoyed their lunch.

This is the first time going to this restaurant. The food was plentiful and quite good but I do not think it is as good as the food at the Greek Tycoon in Whitby. The staff was pleasant but a bit slow at bringing the bill. Definitely a good place to go.

We've eaten here many times now, and almost every time has been the same : the food is delicious; the waiter/waitress is doing fine, but then gets undermined by the over-involved wife of the owner... Aside from her quirkiness, this place is always a great authentic Greek dining experience - right down to the lack of punctuality on anything -... More

We absolutely LOVE Chef Tommy's. Service is wonderful. Atmosphere is quaint. Now the best part...the FOOD!! I love that they offer a zero calorie spicy cabbage soup so I don't feel so indulgent when eating that incredible moussaka which is my absolute favorite. The osso bucco looked divine when I spied them bringing it to another table. My hubby has... More

Saturday dinner for four. We each had something different-lamb,chicken, pasta, and fish- and all were delicious. Entrees included salad and pita bread. Excellent Greek coffee.

I Had never been to this place before. I was told it was open for only a couple of years. As I have enjoyed different restaurants on the Danforth, I was interested if they could compete. Our server was polite, knowledgeable and patient in explaining the different meals, both specials and anything off the vast menu. I had the Mousaka... More

This greek restaurant really knows how to make greek food. Starting with the tzatziki & pita, followed with a greek salad as it should be, and then your main meal of souvlaki, veal parmesan on pasta, or moussaka, it was quite enjoyable. While the restaurant was not too busy at the time we went (past 7pm), the service was friendly... More
