5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2014 via mobile

Had a quick impromptu lunch here with a friend, we ordered the Greek tasting plate for two. The quality and quantity were outstanding, for 30$ for the two us we had an amazing lunch with dips, cold meats dolmades breads etc, we certainly did not go away hungry. Excellent lunch, thanks

“The coffee must be great.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

The coffee we didn't try must be great as the food was very ordinary.Souvlaki?? If we closed our eyes we could have been in Stockland's food court eating $2 kebabs. Chewy and soaked in cheap olive oil,like everything on the plate and the extra salads we ordered. Cheap ingredients,over crowded,over priced,OVER-RATED. Sorry guys.Change ur name to quiche and company and make some salads that taste different.

“Simply excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

We came here with the friends who had recommended the restaurant and wow, we were certainly impressed. The night of our visit corresponded with their regular souvlaki nights, and this is what we all had for mains.

If you are one of those people who expect hovering, over-the-top service, then don't come here because you actually order your meal at the counter. This isn't a major problem however as the staff are very friendly and you only have to walk a few metres.

The restaurant is BYO. The place is tiny, with close-packed tables and the atmosphere is cheery but intimate.

Oh the food! The souvlaki was excellent, with a wonderful balance of flavours between the meat, vegetables and pita. Just because souvlaki is a simple dish certainly doesn't mean that it is boring or plain.

For dessert I had the Galaxy cake, which to me tasted like a kind of baclava with custard. It was simply stunning and one of my all time favorite dessert dishes.

In summary, this place is a great find. Wholesome, simple, delicious food at cafe prices. We shall certainly be going back, and soon.
