Have been to many Greek restaurants and this is one of the best. Fun watching belly dancer and waiter was entertaining. Best hummus I have ever eaten is served free before the meal. You actually grind it yourself at your table. Will be sure to come back next time I am in Atlanta.

Overall experience was o.k. if you get over serving wine in whiskey glasses! Food wasn't anything worth traveling to that part of Atlanta. Not clean place and dirty bathroom. Very affectionate waitter. Restaurant was almost empty and two other tables used groupon. We had kebob and gyros. Gyros was very dry and cold. After we paid and left restaurant the... More

Friends were summoned to a very surprise birthday party at what we thought was a ordinary Greek restaurant. This was far from ordinary. When I walked in the restaurant the music was traditional and there was "OPA!" around with raining tissue confetti. There were dance lines around the restaurant, dancing on the table tops and a belly dancer! The drinks... More

We went to this restaurant yesterday, when we enter we had a great pleasure to see the ambiance was lively. We saw a belly dancer, we dance sirtaki and they were throwing paper towel in the air for a more festive atmosphere. The wine was delicious and the food was delightful. the only negative point was when the belly dancer... More

A little over the top - belly dancers even when there are only 2-3 people in the place. Average to good food. The hummus is fresh made at your table and particularly good. The flaming cheese stuff is overrated. Nice people, good service.

We were here with a large party for a friend's birthday celebration, and the atmosphere was perfect for the occasion. It was loud in the restaurant, but the music was good and the mood was upbeat. It was a bit difficult to have a conversation due to the noise factor, but it wasn't a deal-breaker because most of the time... More

I've eaten here twice with my sister, who twice told me the place was usually busier and more "fun." I didn't care: my priority was the food. We ordered the fixed price, multi-course meal: plenty of food but nothing exceptional to note. The beef and lamb kebobs were overcooked and dry, but the gyro meat and chicken kebobs were good....

We arrived at Taverna Plaka on a Friday night when its very loud and lots of groups come in. We don't mind eating with the fuss that big groups generate but I felt like the staff was more concentrated on them rather than keep providing fair service to everybody. We bought a Groupon and we didn't really complaint after all... More

One of the better Greek restaurants in the Atlanta area. Great hummus which you mix yourself at the table. I loved their tzaziki. Large outdoor patio area. Good place for large parties.

We love going to Taverna Plaka. We went this past Saturday, 8/10. There were several bachelorette parties going on which made it even more fun. The place was rocking around 9:00 pm with plenty of people streaming in. The food is always plentiful and good. The atmosphere is great, as the DJ keeps the crowd entertained with different types of... More
