We ate here on a Saturday evening before a show. The food was very good. I enjoyed the pita bread with hummus. My partner's fillet steak was perfectly prepared. The service was good and the atmosphere great!

Gerrie, i do find it very odd on how you visited my establishment and walked out when we were closed for renovations from the 16 of July until the 6th of September and your review dates for the 27 of August. We are situated in Emperors Palace casino in Kempton Park, maybe you got the wrong restaurant, if so please... More

Dear Loret19, thank you for your review, however i find it weird and in bad taste to review a restaurant that has been closed since the 16th of July fore renovations and we are not open as yet. maybe you got the restaurant name wrong, we are in Emperors Palace. please rectify the review and come try us in September.

I love the hummus and pita starter. The spices are executed very well. Plenty vegetarian options. Quite a relaxing place to have a meal especially supper.

Food good but rump was a bit stringy. Reception excellent but waiter unfriendly. Ambience is excellent and the menu is quite extensive. Visits quite often and management attentive to your needs.

We took the family to celebrate our 16th wedding anniversary. Platia had something for everyone on the menu. We shared a variety of starters and the girls were impressed with their huge milkshakes. The seafood platter was devine. We can also recommend the spagethi bolognaise and the traditional Greek dishes! There was entertainment in the form of a belly dancer,... More

Having returned from Greece recently the decor, the food and the ambience of Platia is the closest thing to actually being there, strolling and dining in the streets of a little island in the Aegean. Choosing a non Greek starter my wife had prawns topped with a creamy and cheesy sauce that had her refusing to share. My spicy livers... More
