The salad was very fresh, crispy and tasty and the different meats and kebabs where delicious. It reminded me of the delicious food I had tried a few months before in Plaka, Athens. As... More

We dined early evening, there were about a dozen other customers. The atmosphere was relaxed, our food arrived quickly, the portions were large and tasty. We didn't finish our mains because of the large portion sizes and also because we were tired after sightseeing all day.

The food was wonderful and so was the service. We were treated like very special people which is so rare these days. The staff were very helpful and the manager was so friendly. This is a very special restaurant and I would highly recommend it. You will not be disappointed.

Since I am Greek I thought to give it a try with my friend. Well the food was not that bad but didn't look really fresh. The dessert Kataifi really bad. Not fresh and they just add honey on top although we can see that had some other more fresh. The service quick and they are hospital. The environment not... More

We had spotted this place as we walked into the city centre from The Premier Inn near Euston and although the reviews were a bit mixed we thought we would give it a try. Ordered the mezze for two at £15.95 each which turned out to be really good value. Complimentary olives followed by taramosalata, tzatziki and hummus with pitta... More

The head chef is off Wednesdays now but otherwise always there and keen... More
