Yummy! I had the kebab with pita bread and yogurt. It was sooo good! The waiter recommended me to order a half portion and even that was too big. The price was really good, I paid €6 for my meal and 50p for a still...water. The service was good too, there were 2 waiters serving my table and they were both very friendly and made good suggestions. I enjoyed this place so much that I went there again in the next day.More

Thanasis Kebab is one of the most popular kebab and souvlaki places located next to the Monastiraki square, downtown Athens. No matter what time of day this place is always full of locals and tourists, enjoying the simple yet delicious traditional meal. This place has...been around for 50 years yet it has managed to keep its excellent reputation and quality. The highlight of the menu is the kebab which is made of ground beef and is cooked on flat skewers suspended over a charcoal grill. The traditional serving includes four kebabs served on pita bread, sprinkled with fresh onions and topped with sweet fresh grilled tomatoes. To enjoy a real Greek meal a Greek salad and tsatziki is a must, as well as fresh fries served with a touch of oregano.More

Are here as it was buzzing with locals. We were tired, hungry, just arrived in town, and the restaurant we planned to eat at was full! Service was excellent, almost too quick. Perhaps I could recommend that if you want starters and a main, order...the main once you've eaten you starter. Our main arrived just as our starters came. All our dishes were really excellent. The toasted pitta bread was amazing. As were the roasted tomatoes. My kebabs were very tasty, and I ordered yoghurt on the side, which really added to the meal. A very short menu, but everything cooked to order, fresh and delicious.More

On Monday 06.10 at 11:34 We asked for a couple of kebabs without the tzatziki but spicy cheese spread instead but the guy at the counter told us no, he said they only put this sauce in a portion of kebab?!?Absolutely non sense and Absolutely...terrible service. They seem they have great buisness to turn customers away especially they are all smiles at the door to get you in. Never again .More

This place was proposed to us by a local guy. Were quite surprised cause the restaurant looks like a tourist trap. But on the contrary, while it is both for tourists and locals it is definitely not a trap. Souvlaki was one of the best...if not the best in my (long) life. Let me be more precise: I enjoyed this food better than the food of many Michelin star restaurants I have tested. I I have tested many.More

Discovered it on my last day, finally had a good kebab and for 2.30 euro! The bread was soft, the meat was actual chunks of real, moist, salty, bbq chicken breast. A big wedge of tomato and some yoghurt sauce. Should have had 2 of...them but I was hesitant as it was very hot and I am weary of outdoor restaurant with the flies, dirt etc. but I chose this place as the serving area was housed well inside And not literally on the pavement And staff wore gloves, it looked clean. I found out back at the hotel how good the food was and it was too late to go back for more...maybe next time if I am ever in AthensMore

Monastiraki is a souvenir-hunting enclave with a

Yes you can. You should ask for souvlaki with pita. Not a whole plate. It's by pieces. For example 3 kebab on pita not a plate of kebab.!!!

AT THANASSIS ONE ORDERS THE LAMB KEBABS! They never served Gyros until recently, when they added it for some tourists asking for it. Lamb kebab is the real thing here.

You do not need reservation but if you prefer to eat outside you might have to wait a few minutes.
