I saw so many review's on here and figured there were too many positive reviews for me not to try it for breakfast and glad we did. We got there and Taki himself seated us, what a great guy, very friendly and happy to see...us. Sat at one of the tables in the this little Greek cafe and had a simple egg ham and cheese on a hard roll #2 had french toast with strawberries. My sandwich was delicious, fresh roll, lean ham and egg with melted cheese, the french toast was by far the winner though, awesome! Coffee was fresh and as i mentioned, service with a smile, pity we are not around for lunch or dinner, Greeks know how to run a great cafe and i was eyeballing the chicken, lemon and rice soup...!More

Need a quick n affordable lunch in downtown Buffalo? Like Souvlaki? Then head for Taki’s on Court St. The best item on the menu is the chicken souvlaki lunch plate. A nice lunch size portion of chicken souvlaki, salad w feta, fries and a pita....All at your table in 5-10 min from the order to plate on the table. Good stuff. Another option is the ham steak breakfast which is served all day. Thank you Taki!More

For a place that pins itself as a Greek restaurant there's an amazingly small amount of Greek food on the menu. Service was bad, my order of the taki's special had two paper thin rashes of bacon on it. Would not recommend.

This little restaurant had some really good food. It was not too far from our hotel so that was nice.

Came to Buffalo for business and was wandering around looking for breakfast. Did not want one of the chain establishments. This place is wonderful! The owner came out and greeted me. Said he’s been here for 20 years. Service was quick and the portions were...large. Clean and tidy, great atmosphere.More

The front desk staff at our hotel 2 blocks from Taki's recommended Taki's as the only good breakfast choice outside of the hotel. Immediately upon arrival, management made it evident that the suggestion was going to be proven correct. It's referred to as a diner,...but actually has the look and feel of an old city coffee shop We are those challenging customers that request substitutions. The unwanted pork with my combo was replaced with real sliced turkey. And my gluten free spouse was given a complete breakfast that responded to her needs. We were treated like long appreciated locals, even though this is likely to be the only breakfast we consume in Buffalo NY. We enjoyed our meals. But the service and attitude probably made the food taste even better than it was. The walls are adorned with witty promotional posters and the whole experience created a pleasant memory of Downtown Buffalo.More

Old fashioned diner where you can get a great breakfast for an excellent price. Friendly staff who make you feel welcome. Will return when next in Buffalo.

$10 souvlaki. Dry chicken, same super-oily dressing, no onions even though requested, brown iceberg. Nope.

Went at the recommendation of a local. While the food wasn't bad it isn't necessarily somewhere I will return to if I visit Buffalo again.

The lemonade, chicken fingers and fries were great. The service was friendly and the waitress accommodated our request for separate bills with no problem. Everyone at the table was happy with their meals, mostly BLT's. Good place for a quick, efficient lunch.
