Yum, yum, yum. What more is there to say. Everything I've tried at The Fat Greek is yummy. Even sitti g next a busy street, the environment feels like a little bit of Greece. The hummus is fresh and the gyros never dissapoint; love their tzatziki. Now for the baklava....

This was our go-to place for Greek food. Casual atmosphere, good prices, pay at the counter and they buzz you when it's ready. Parking (expensive) across the street. We went last week for early dinner. DH had falafel, we shared a salad, I had souvlaki. About halfway through the salad, DH takes a bite of the falafel, chews twice and... More

A few years ago we ate at the one in Wakiki. It was excellent. We found this one by accident and went. The food was excellent the service was great. Did not disappoint.

The food is great. I'm not ethnic Greek. But if I was.. The hardest part is the parking. Very convenient for students. On the busy corner. The gyro is maybe the best besides da line at don Q or the Chinatown location.

As a regular customer of this eating establishment, it is sad that there would be sold out signs in such a early time 9f them evening let alone dinner time 5:30 to be exact. The restaurant only had 3 tables that was filled out 18 tables... How would that be possible to run out so early. I know they open... More

This is a great place for a night out with friends. Good atmosphere and great food. Bring your own wine and stay as long as you want.m there are other locations in the Ala Moana Mall and Kailua now. It's a very successful restaurant group and awesome food. The wait staff is peppy and dress is casual. Enjoy!

Today, was the worst experience we ever had at The Fat Greek. Normally, they had good food and service. Not any more. I asked if they had a certain item - they said NO. I asked if they had a different item - they said NO. I said, "let's make this simple - what items do you have?" They had... More

This is a nice little restaurant where you order your food at the counter and find a table to sit and enjoy. They give you a little buzzer to let you know when your food is ready I had the lamb shank and it was excellent. The portions are huge, especially consider the price you pay. The meat is tender...

My daughter had kid's night at her ballet studio, so we decided to check out The Fat Greek. We were not disappointed. The service was nice and the food was really good. It's not a typical sit down restaurant. You order your food at the counter and then they will give you a buzzer when your food is ready. You... More
