I've been here 3 times, never unsatisfied.
The service is very friendly, welcoming and helpful.
The food is great: big portions, wide choice, average prices.
The Mussakka is wonderful! And also the starters: I could have dinner only with them. Pitta bread is great served hot and grilled.
Nice place for dinner with friends (not too big groups, the place is pretty small), and also for a cosy dinner with your partner.
The restaurant is very busy at weekends and a couple of times I hadn't the chance to have a table without a reservation...so I would recommend to get a reservation.

The owners (Greek woman and a tall Greek man) and an 'Asian look' female staff gave me a definitely unforgettable and horrible memory.
Firstly they charged us for the 'In the House' bread starter, which they forced us to have it and said it was free in the beginning.
Secondly, they charged us for the tap water, two pounds each, and even gossiped and stared at us in the bar after we just asked the price of the water.

Last but not least, there were insects in the Trout and Seabass dishes on our plates. When we told the staff about this, the staff cleared away all the meals (destroying evidence) . After that, show on. The male Greek owner shouted at us, 'Fucxxxx customers! Go Outside! You are the Hookxxs!' We are shocked and explained we just wanted to change the dishes without insects. Then the Asian look female staff came towards us and humulitated, saying ' you just don't want to pay the bills and play this kind of stupid game. Stop acting! '

We said we need an apologize and already paid the whole price for everything to reject what they said. Then they threatened us they were calling the police. The male owner approached us and raised his hand, look like going to punch us. It was extremely horrible and scaring experience!

Our unfinished food be cleared away, bellyache due to the dirty insects in the dishes, be called 'Hookxx and Fucxxxx Customers'. By framed about not want to pay the bill, which was ridiculas! In the end, we even paid the whole bill without their apologize but be kicked out. I wonder whether this can raise to the lawsuit and shut this unforgivable horrible Greek restaurant. It ruined the image of London. Has Britain changed?

Nice clean restaurant with delicious food. It is so close to Paddington Station and very convenient. The Greek dishes were on par with those I have eaten in Australia.

Food was delicious as it always is when I visit. Love the family run vibe and the free bowl of fruit at the end.
Sometimes hard to catch the waitresses eye but I'd still go back each time I'm in paddington.
If you like Greek food try this hidden gem!

There is a warm welcome from the waiting on team, and the service was efficient, with free starter pitta and dips etc and a refreshing fresh fruit dish to finish off a superbly cooked main, a lovely touch, and quite a surprise in London, where most meal items are an additional charge, so good I went twice, both the kleftico and lamb special shish were delicious.
