“Turkish the Greek way”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Went there one evening together with a business associate. As he is a vegetarian, we have found it difficult to find good dishes which are both tolerable and palatable for vegetarians, as you're only able to cope with salads and pasta dishes to a certain extent.
We were therefore more than pleasantly surprised when we found out, that they were more than willing to put together something special for him.
I took some of the there more well-known dishes (kebab etc.), whilst I looked at the plethora of delightful grilled vegetables, hommus, spiced rice, even more spiced beans.
We decided that we could share a bit (aside the meat of cause) and it was really good. Together with an excellent Greek red wine with a delightful taste and a fiery color (I'm so sorry I missed the name of it), this was an excellent meal.
An ordinary Tuesday evening there were relatively few people there, which is a pity, since both food and service was very good.
Deserves my recommendation.

“Good food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

We wanted an experience from Turkish cuisine so we were recommended to try the Pantelis. The food was good with a good variety of dishes. They explained to us each dish which I found very helpful, since I was not familiar with Turkish cuisine. Overall a good place for Turkish food.

“Best Istanbul atmosphere+food in Athens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

It is not a cheap restaurant considered by total price. And I have heard comments such as "it is expensive for a kebab house". But I believe this is because there are a lot of cheap souvlaki-donner-kofte kebab places in Athens, where one can have a cheap kebab standing etc. But the whole atmosphere in Pandeli is something else. And one that has experience with nice bourgeois culture restaurants in Istanbul will understand. The food is much more than just Donner or Kofte kebabs (although it's the best donner in town: especially selected meat, with no fat and perfectly bbqed) : The Patlican salad (Aubergines Salad) is EXACTLY like in Istanbul (and this salad is totally different than aubergine salads one can tast in any Greek restaurant). Hunkiar Beyendi is the best I have ever tasted. The Levrek (sea bass) cooked in "the paper" with butter is an absolute must. The "lakerda" is available only when found in Istanbul. The appetizers with Pasturma come also straight from there. The wine list more complete than expected, with not only Greek labels, but an interesting selection from around the world including regions such as Alsace and Bordeaux! The desserts arejust perfect! Must absolutely have kunefe with or without ice cream, and kazan-dipi, then Turkish tea or coffee, andfor the end Ahududu liquor (from Framboises) or a different Ayran, with honey and cinnamon, is offered for digestion!

“Turkish delicacies”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

The food is really very nice and the atmosphere pleasant. They have some innovative recipes to delight your palate which will satisfy you enough to bear the sour bill, as this is an expensive place to dine but definitely one you would want to take your precious one to, to please them and experience a memorable feast of the senses!
