On the Danforth. Certainly worth checking out. We usually like to go after one of the greek parades since it is closer to Broadview and we avoid the rush.

I having been going here for a couple of years and love their food! It is a family run business, and you can see their passion. It is my favourite authentic Greek restaurant on the Danforth. The prices and portions are amazing! It may not look like much on the outside, but give the food a try, you will no... More

A treasure spot that we almost didn't want to share. Take out and sit in but it is very casual, quaint and on the small side. Appears to be a patio seating area so will gave to go back when it isn't -29C to check it out. The food is traditional Greek and so good. Very adequate portion sizes. You... More

I've been eating here for at least 20 years. Food is delicious, plentiful and reasonably priced. Booze is also reasonably priced. Service is usually friendly and always fast. Atmosphere is homey. Ma and Pa type place. Patio out back during the warm months. And you're close to Chester subway station (just west of it.) An added bonus is listening to... More

I'm gobsmacked reading some of the negative reviews of this place. Asteria is a great, unpretentious, family-run place that serves some amazing food - fresh salads, fantastic chicken souvlaki. Service is friendly if not instant. The decor is nothing to write home about - old framed pictures of Greece on plain plaster walls and the most basic of cafeteria tables... More

Asteria is one of my favourite Greek restaurants. It is not pretentious and doesn't pretend to provide anything but good wholesome food at a reasonable price.

The food is horrible. Service is sad and slow and not very friendly. Many options nearby that are delicious and fun! Don't think so...

Restaurant is terrible overall! I can literally not believe all the other reviews here...it doesn't make sense. There are many delicious places down the street and this just doesn't compare! Disgusting food, horrible service, building is horrible with dirty dingy stairs leading down to a horrendous bathroom....stay away!!!

Asteria is a neighborhood eatery with a nice back patio area. You're welcome by family members as if you are part of the family. Food is plentiful and tasty, prepared simply. Prices are very reasonable. If you're in the neighborhood, try it for lunch. If the weather is nice, ask to be seated in the patio area.

We asked a local along The Danforth to recommend a good Greek restaurant. He sent us to the Asteria. From the outside, it didn't look like our kind of place but we went in and found a lovely patio out back away from the hustle and bustle of the Danforth. The food was probably the best Greek food any of... More
