Authentic Greek Food at a Decent Price

My daughter had kid's night at her ballet studio, so we decided to check out The Fat Greek. We were not disappointed. The service was nice and the food was really good. It's not a typical sit down restaurant. You order your food at the counter and then they will give you a buzzer when your food... read more

The Fat Greek is a locals sort of place in the (kinda funky and kinda trendy in a low key way) Kaimuki are of Honolulu. There are plenty of shops and interesting side streets to explore in this area. Not a tourist spot. Great Greek food, daily specials, indoor and outdoor seating, food arrives fairly fast and is quite good.

The location is a little difficult to find but it is worth the search. I liked it so much during my first visit went back a few days later. The chicken kebobs are fantastic - the portions are large and very tasty. You can dine inside or under the covered lanai. I highly recommend this restaurant if you are craving... More

If you would like to eat two meals and pay a bunch of money for it, go to the fat greek. Also, if you want ice cold fries, go to the fat greek. If you would like service that is sub par, go...to...the...fat....greek.

I like to have dinner here, sit outside, and BYOB. It is very relaxing. I like the Greek salad with salmon and my husband likes the chicken souvlaki. Their appetizers are great. We like the cheese and olive, the hummus, and the baba ganoush. Hint: order and enjoy your appetizer and enjoy it before ordering your meal, they serve very... More

My mom and I got food from the Fat Greek Kiosk at the Ala Moana mall during our stay in Hawaii. The gyro and salad were delicious. So I bragged about it to my husband and dad who wanted to try the Fat Greek restaurant on the corner from where we were staying in the St Louis district on Waialae.... More

I had dinner here tonight. I've been to this restaurant several times in the past. Typically the food is tasty, and the food comes out slowly (you don't usually get served, you have to go pick it up at the counter when they buzz you). However, tonight an incident occurs that causes me to never return, and suggest that no... More

My husband and I came here with my in-laws for dinner. We bought a Groupon before our vacation for $40 worth of food. We still had to pay $15 out of pocket. The food wasn't great. I've had much better Greek fair. The babaganoush was yucky. The salad dressing my in-laws poured all over their salad turned out to be... More
