“Bland-not very Greek”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

We regularly visit the Danforth for lunch and dinner outings and have always had a good experience. On this occasion we were spending the day shopping and thought we would try our the Pan. The four of us sat on their outdoor sidewalk patio. If you visit the Danforth you know that the sidewalk patios are small and the sights and sounds are cars. We started with the Kolokithokeftedes, Zucchini croquettes with feta(bland, no flavour), plate of Lima beans which were not fully cooked, we all ordered the Pan Chicken Souvlaki(not spiced at all, so bland) which is served with mini potatoes(hard and no flavour) rice(had a moldly smell) and mixed greens (we asked our server for the greek salad instead of mixed greens but were told that's how the plate comes) maybe because on the day of our visit it was a fixed menu, not sure why we couldn't order what we requested, Anyways, we were all quite disappointed and barely ate, as we all know what good greek food should taste like. We tried the mini baklava bites (awful!) and the milfay(mushy). When our waiter asked us if we wanted to take it home, we said no because we did not like the food. Don't think we will re-visit. Many other spots on the Danforth strip with better tasting food.

“Real Greek food on The Danforth”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

A great alternative when you want Greek food on The Danforth. The food is generally excellent, although not always as fresh as it could be. We have found that it is best to ask what is good on the day rather than to expect what we had on our last visit to be as good today as it was yesterday.

The service can be excellent, although we have found that it is not always.

“AMAZING FOOD AND SERVICE! This is Greek food at its finest!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

A little taste of Greek heaven! This is one of the best food experiences we've had. It was wonderful in every way. The decor, service, food, and entertainment were second to none.
Yes, I said entertainment. At about 8pm the music switched over and a lovely belly dancer entertained all the patrons. And it was a full house. Very enjoyable and memorable.
I would recommend Pan on The Danforth to anyone looking for delicious food and a great night out.

Incredibly tasty greek food plus a fun, high energy atmosphere. Be sure to go on Friday or Saturday night for the belly dancers. They start at 9PM.

“A Cozy Spot to Enjoy Good Greek Cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

We've enjoyed every meal we've had at Pan. The service is friendly and mostly professional (when it isn't it is still well meaning service). Good value.
