A restaurant with a "split personality"

I have been to this restaurant twice. On our first visit, the food was fantastic and we couldn't wait to come back. So I started recommending this restaurant to all my acquaintances. The second time however, even though we repeated a couple of dishes (Bombay Potatoes) it was not nearly as good... read more

Went to iskandar with a 50% discount coupon and to be honest, this was to our advantage since the menu is a bit overpriced. However, with two main courses, naan bread & 2 bowls of rice (which by the way was extra since the main courses did not include it), we reached the price limit for the discount. We had... More

The taste of more than 5 different main courses that we had chosen was average and maybe below that. There are FAR much better indian restaurants and in Greece and in most of them price per person is around 25 euro where as here the price per person was 50 euro.

We visited "Iskandar" yesterday, on Amfitheas str. and I am sorry we were completely disappointed. (The food was goodish oohing special, though!!!), but the service was absolutely poor and the menu was inexplicably overpriced!!! Itwould not even be worth half the money we spent on a meal there! The waiter hardly bothered to speak or explain to us what a... More

Very warm Bolly-Kitch interior and Welcoming staff are great to start with. Food is not world class but still certainly amognst the best you can get in Athens: Portions are rich, Naan bread is amazingly good, all food well balanced and pleasantly spicy! With several main dishes over 20EUR summing over 35 EUR per person without wine, prices seems a... More

A really "bollywood" restaurant, with impressive decoration and a food to match it. A little bit expensive, but the experience is worth every cent! Recommended!

VERY GOOD FOOD. IF YOU CAN TAKE CARRY OUT THE VALUE TO MONEY IS VERY HIGH. THE PORTIONS ON THE CARRY OUT MODE ARE HUGE. THE BEST INDIAN FOOD IN ATHENS.

Ive really missed Indian food after living in Greece for a few years and am so glad to have found Iskandar. The only annoying thing is that it's a bit overpriced, but to be fair- its no different in any nice place in Athens. The food was great. We had samosas, tandoori lamb, chicken tikka masala, and the saffron ice... More
