The food is really nice (been here before, and the starters were nice and fresh), but the almost an hour long wait for the main course was too much, especially as we had specifically asked the waitress what we should have since we only had an hour. We took her advice but something went wrong - people came in after... More

I accidentally walked past the restaurant. It looked very genuine and I desired to step in. The staff took in a lonely eater friendly. They took a really good care of me. I ordered the "paper lamb" which was really delicious and I was recommended a very well matching red wine with my choise. Taverna Zorbas is definitive a different... More

Several years from our previous visit, but this time, a few days ago, we had the feeling that there had not been any major changes. They still serve a rather large selection of very typical Greek dishes. We could not remember if the interior was still the same. However, the plates were nice-looking. The dishes are tasty - so if... More

We visited Zorbas with extended family including persons who spend about three months per year in Greece. The interior feels genuine. We were kindly met and the service was nice. We shared two two-person mixed starter plates for five which was just about right, not too much. A nice variety of greek starters. The main courses (Greek salad, souvlaki, moussaka... More

From the moment I walked in I was impressed with the service and incredibly warm welcome. The waiter was very polite and helpful, providing a menu in English but still providing an explanation of the dishes. The mixed grill was excellent - all the meats (ox, lamb, chicken, pork were perfectly cooked as were the vegetables and potatoes. A very... More

Food is good, but the major is an extremely friendly and professional waiter serving you there. This is the best service I have seen last months.

Expensive for the size of portions. Taste was ok, but no reason to come back. 3 prawns in main dish is not much. Service was between good and bad. Clean toilets anyway.

It is the best place to eat Greek dishes. I am from Turkey and I like eating Greek foods because all of them are so similar. As to restaurant, the hoster is so hospitable. all of the things are so good such as caciki, taramosalad,kalamaraki and so forth. The prices are so affordable in the district of Helsinki. I strongly... More
