“Sudden let down”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Usually a favorite but last evening roundly disappointed.
Avgolemono soup was bland with little strands that looked like melted cheese but more likely curdled egg. The good thing was real boned chicken in it and a lack of thickener so many other restaurants use to thicken the sauce.
Coffe both times served just a couple of degrees above warm.
Gyro meat was much too salty and over spiced. Could have used more tzatziki sauce too.
Menu claimed bean sprouts in the Avocado wrap but if they were, they were invisible.
I will give it another try in a few weeks hoping it was an off day.

“Best Greek Salad in St. Pete”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

I love to combine the salad with either a spinach pie or some sort of meat. The gyro is superb. The service is excellent and the owners are very pleasant people and always around.
