tried the open souvlaki meal and really enjoyed it. The place opens up once inside and the staff mannerism is alright. very satisfactory and will come back again. My friend tried the vegetarian option and it was also good.

We were looking for a little Greek place and found this. The meat was very tough and it all came with a wilted bit of sliced lettuce and some fries! Very disappointed.

This is a busy bustling restaurant. The menu, while not extensive has a good variety to choose from - particularly the starters. Had dolmades and hommus with pitta bread to start and lamb gyros for main. Excellent food with good friendly service. The mains are...More
