Can highly recommend the shrimp, octopus and greek salad. We lived in Toronto for nearly 2 years and this was our go-to when family came to visit. It's also fun to visit the daily kitchen offerings from the chef.

This has to be the best Greek Food I've ever had in my over 20 years living in Toronto. They encourage you to see the specials in the kitchen. The toast lamb was fabulous....everything was spot on.

We were looking for a tasty lunch between our hockey games and this place was exactly that. Amazing greek salad, almost 2 tomatoes per plate. Pita was fresh and tzatiki was fluffy and zesty. Chicken souvlaki was juicy and cooked perfectly. Would definitely recommend!

First time in Toronto’s Greek town will not be the last. Great authentic food served by friendly people. Kitchen is open if you want to see what looks good. As good as anything I had on my recent trip to Greece.

At first sight this isn't anything special, but, as we all know, appearances can be very deceptive. The place was full of greek families, which was very encouraging. The server came and took our drink order, then invited us into the kitchen to have the...More
