Today, was the worst experience we ever had at The Fat Greek. Normally, they had good food and service. Not any more. I asked if they had a certain item - they said NO. I asked if they had a different item - they said NO. I said, "let's make this simple - what items do you have?" They had... More

This is a nice little restaurant where you order your food at the counter and find a table to sit and enjoy. They give you a little buzzer to let you know when your food is ready I had the lamb shank and it was excellent. The portions are huge, especially consider the price you pay. The meat is tender...

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 is ready. You... 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
