All food overcooked even rice and halloumi deepfried. No prawns and 1 sardine each with fish meze. Frozen calamaris and no dalmadis with meat meze. No potatoes and Keo 6 quid a bottle. worst attempt at a Greek meal i've ever had the misfortune to try. Absolutely terrible...

I've only been here for lunch but never been dissatisfied. How can you be dissatisfied with two course for £5.90! We were immediately given peppers, olives and carrots while we perused the menu, and these were followed by 2 more plates and hot pitta bread. Then starter and main all for just over a fiver. We left full. Service was fine, but it wasn't busy (why not at this price?) the food was OK. Look, it's not haute cuisine but honest food. Fill up and be happy.

I had been to this restaurant before paying full price obviously and had a good steak so when a friend suggested going back as he has a taste card I was happy enough. There were 4 of us. First we ordered 2 T Bones and 1 sirloin and I other dish. The waiter came back and stated that they only have 1 T Bone so we ordered another sirloin. When the waitress bought the steak up she said 2 medium sirloin and I said we ordered medium rare. When I did manage to cut a piece of the steak it was so tough and well done I asked for it to be changed to which they replied we have run out of steak and that it is good enough to eat. I am not normally a complainer and I was so disgusted at her attitude. There were no niceties at all. When I asked to complain to the chef and asked him if he genuinely thought the steak was edible he threw us out of the restaurant. I have never been treated so badly. I am guessing the steak was not even sirloin but a cheap meat as we were using the taste card. If they cant give steak on the menu with taste card then they should charge a little extra I would have been happy to pay. The place is also not quaint and shabby chic but run down and the walls and toilets need some serious work. Moral of the story only go here if you are paying full price they might then smile at you.
