Fantastic greek dinner after work

Was there with a colleague of mine after work, i got the half price maze deal from groupon, with 18£ i had maze greek mix, 3 mythos beers and an espresso. Food was really great and i couldn't manage to finish it all. Staff was very kind and polite. I'd really suggest this place!

Visited here last night before going to theatre it was lovely, staff were very friendly and efficient. We shared a greek salad to start on the advice of our waiter as the portions are big, then we both opted for the pork gyros from the specials board, this was very tasty and once again huge portions neither of us could...

Restaurant had a great atmosphere considering the early time we visited and also a live bazouki band playing traditional Greek folk music, not too loud or in your face - just added to the evening. Cool place, not sure why... More

We had a Groupon for Simply Greek and didn't really know what to expect. Overall, we were really pleased! The Groupon was for the Greek Mezze dinner, which requires a minimum of 2 diners. For £18 per person (we had it 50% off from Groupon!), you get a big platter of appetizers and a big platter of entrees, though the... More
