“Love the Meze”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

I have been to the Grecian Taverna a number of the times over the years and always recommend it to people if they want decent Greek food in massive portions! Yes the overcrowding at popular times can be a little off putting but the staff have the service down to a fine art. I ate there with a group of friends during the Christmas rush and the service was great, there was no delays with our food. The staff even gave us the option of when we ordered dessert as they were about to start serving a large Christmas party so warned us of a bit of a wait if we delayed.

The Meze is amazing, particularly the starter but be warned the portions are huge so go hungry.

I would strongly recommend this restaurant but be aware this is a basement venue and they do cram the people in so don't go if this will bother you. Great value for money.

“Fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Haven't been for years, but we had a staff do here last Friday. What a brilliant night, i'd forgotten how much fun you can have there! The food is very good and then the music starts! After you've eaten you can stay and dance the evening away. Highly recommended

“vile”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

had lemon chicken . smell was revolting.
overcrowded. overpriced for sure
avoid. cant think why anyone would rate more than 1. horrid boozy dump.i would not go back as the place is just a joke overcrowded due to cramming in far too many people,some were sitting on the stairs waiting for a table. my mum never complains but she couldnt believe how long she waited ,we all finished wgen she got her main. dont put yourself through it.
