“Small seating, authentic & delicious food”
Reviewed March 4, 2014 via mobile

A treasure spot that we almost didn't want to share.
Take out and sit in but it is very casual, quaint and on the small side. Appears to be a patio seating area so will gave to go back when it isn't -29C to check it out.
The food is traditional Greek and so good. Very adequate portion sizes. You get value for your $ .

“Great food at a reasonable price”
Reviewed December 9, 2013

I've been eating here for at least 20 years. Food is delicious, plentiful and reasonably priced. Booze is also reasonably priced. Service is usually friendly and always fast. Atmosphere is homey. Ma and Pa type place. Patio out back during the warm months. And you're close to Chester subway station (just west of it.) An added bonus is listening to some Riverdale champagne socialists go on about how bad they have it as teachers with three months off per year, benefits up the wazoo, and a six-figure salary for teaching kindergarten for 15 years.

“My favourite Greek Restaurant on the Danforth”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

I'm gobsmacked reading some of the negative reviews of this place. Asteria is a great, unpretentious, family-run place that serves some amazing food - fresh salads, fantastic chicken souvlaki.

Service is friendly if not instant.

The decor is nothing to write home about - old framed pictures of Greece on plain plaster walls and the most basic of cafeteria tables and chairs, but the cooking area is always clean and the food is really fresh.

Line ups at dinner time in the summer are killer, but that's pretty much because it's the go-to place for much of the neighbourhood.

“Soul Food”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

Asteria is one of my favourite Greek restaurants. It is not pretentious and doesn't pretend to provide anything but good wholesome food at a reasonable price.

“Uh, no, I don't think so.”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

The food is horrible. Service is sad and slow and not very friendly. Many options nearby that are delicious and fun! Don't think so...
