“To be avoided.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2014

We had coupons so tried this place more than once. It did not matter if we went for lunch or dinner. The food is sub par and not always warm. We have had the misfortune to hear staff arguing with customers about the food and people leaving in unhappy humour. We have warned others about this place.

“Groupon coupon no bargain!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2014 via mobile

Went with a friend for dinner. Had spanakopita with tough pastry for starter. Ordered chicken souvlaki served with roasted vegetables, all too generously salted. Told the waitress this and she missed the point, said to ask for salt free next time. My friend ordered a Greek combo, again with salty souvlaki and roasted veggies. The spanakopita and moussaka was over cooked, both dark and dry. Had a piece of berry pie that was "homemade" and quite good. Even with the Groupon discount the meal was overpriced and not a good value.

“A Rip-off”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2013

Don't eat here! Skimpy portions of poor food, with overcharging on the bill. We tried to use their Groupon coupons, following the rules (one per person, reserve in advance, tell the server when ordering). The server advises that you can use only one per table, according to a sign they have stuck up by the bar (you can't read this sign yourself since there is furniture in the way). Telling in advance evidently is so they can serve you skimpy portions of poor food. They have a menu that is different (items missing, dishonest, more expensive) than the one on their website. The lamb souvlaki that I wanted was now absent, the lamb chops were a ridiculous price, and the "lamb gyro" had a few pieces of the thin, dry, processed beef stuff that the fast-food places use, and very little else. The bill had higher prices than on their menu, and extra charges they invented (a charge for the French fries that the menu says are included). The restaurant was nearly empty, but the three occupied tables were crowded in front of the one window that was not covered with something.

“Poor, overpriced food, small portions”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2013

Salad was bland, almost no dressing on it, and was a $2.99 upcharge if substituted for the soup. Chicken pita had almost no chicken in it, more tomato and raw onion than anything drowned in tzatziki sauce. Spaghetti was overcooked, watery, and a weird brownish color to the tomato sauce.
