My family goes here often when we are in the area. My grandparents have been bringing me here my entire life so now going back reminds me of them. They have great food and the owners and staff are incredibly nice. We have used the Athens for multiple large events dinning in and taking out. Portions are huge! The baked... More

My second try here (see earlier review). Took my Greek wife with me this time, and we were both very disappointed. The portions are huge and the prices are also high in comparison to what you get, but the main complaint is the taste is just not authentic (or at least good) Greek food. We would not have been able... More

The food here is really good, the portions are huge, and the prices are reasonable. This time around, I had the lemon chicken soup and the roasted lamb, and my friend had the roasted chicken. The decor is old-school and shabby elegant, but nice. Service is friendly but can be slow.

Our family got three large orders for takeout. We ordered grape leaves in lemon sauce, fish, potatoes, spaghetti, spinach pie and baklava. The spinach pie and the fish were good with good-sized portions. The spaghetti, well, it's Greek, not Italian. The potatoes were a little odd in some sort of tomato sauce, and a lot of it. The grape leaves... More

We decided to check out the Athens Restaurant since it has been forever since we were there. The waitress was very friendly and the place was very clean and fresh looking in shades of blue and white. It did not appear tired as some reviews stated but looked like it had been recently updated, The booths were comfy and nicely... More

Consistently good greek food. Location and property itself is not that great, and kind of tired looking, but you need to look beyond that. Not many truly Greek restaurants in Manchester.

Best roasted or baked lamb i think your ever find. Veggies that come with the lamb has the great taste of the lamb.If there's a downside the booths are as old as the restaurant and it can be to low. There are plenty of tables a must try!!!!!!!!
