“Even better than last time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

Revisited this restaurant as we enjoyed it so much last time . This occasion was even more pleasant because we were welcomed so warmly and had such a good and informative chat with the owner . I lived in this area years ago and it was fantastic to find that my very favourable impressions of 'Taste of Cyprus ' were not a one off - far from it !

Delicious meze starters and then king prawns with garlic sauce for me and fillet steak for my partner . Tasty , tangy , fresh and succulent , we loved our meal . Cypriot wine and beer were yummy . Look forward to our next trip . Thank you for a super lunch and proper hospitality , we appreciate it .

“Great Greek food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

This restaurant produces excellent food at very good prices. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food is absolutely brilliant. From the outside it doesn't look very inspiring but make sure you go in to sample the wonderful food. Chef Michael is particularly helpful and friendly. We have eaten here a few times now and I'm never disappointed with the quality and quantity of the food.
Definitely worth a visit...

“We just popped in on the off chance.. What a stroke of luck”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014 via mobile

We popped in here this evening on the off chance when we found that the restaurant we'd originally aimed for had shut down....good thing too.
Great buzz, lots of atmosphere , nice food , lovely friendly service and very good value, and it's just a local restaurant.
So c'mon you Beckenham people, if you haven't been there , get along, you won't regret it .
( incidentally it serves Greek food,,, good Greek food).

“Excellent Cypriot food!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

We were highly recommended to visit this restaurant. We visited Taste of Cyprus to celebrate our friends's birthday- a group of twenty. We ate the Meat and Fish Meze, which were excellent. The Lamb shank- Kleftiko fell off the bone it was cooked to perfection. The sea-bass was delicious, the biggest I ever seen. The portions were huge, and the beef - Stifado just melted in your mouth. The food is very pleasing and well presented, it is excellent value for money. The staffs are amazingly lovely, helpful and go the extra mile to accommodate requests. Michael the chef owner was a delight, he made a great effort to stop and talk to all the customers, nothing was too much trouble. Thank you Michael to make us feel very special on Sunday lunch. I highly recommend this restaurant, they also accept taste card for ten people!!!
