The food is tasty, tasty, tasty and the prices, unbelievably reasonable. There's a a wide selection on offer, all cooked beautifully. The portion sizes are good- so no one should be left hungry. The staff are friendly, attentive and don't hassle you. Can't wait to go again, whether for lunch, Dinnet or late meal.

Nipped in here for a quick lunchtime meal on a saturday afternoon. We were quickly shown to seats upstairs and given the comprehensive menu, along with the 'special deal' menu. We went with the special deal - 3 mezze/tapas dishes for £6.96 pp. As there were 3 of us, this gave us 9 dishes - which all turned up as... More

Went with a group of friends on a Saturday evening. The place was packed! Had to book 90mins ahead and then wait for a call from the owner to let us know when to head over. Service was good, food worked out as good value and it was tasty. Souvlaki, hummus, bread etc all well cooked and quite authentic. Think... More

If you love Greek food, look no further. We have eaten here three or four times and it is now my favourite lunch spot in Nottingham. Portions are perfect, although go easy its all so good its very easy to over order and you cant eat it. Nice wine list too. Would highly recommend.

We always have the sharer meals between a group and you get plenty for your money! The food is always amazing and the atmosphere friendly. You will usually have to book in advance unless it's just the 2.

Will revisite when im in the city next, great place, fast service, staff work hard and really helpful. The food was all perfect, we had the special menu at £20 each, well worth the money. A little noisey but it was a nice atmosphere.
