went for the fixed price menu with a party of 8. the quantity of food was amazing with so many mezze starters + bread - at one point there may have been 12 -15 small dishes of mezze on the table & very easy to fill up on this (see later) incl deep fried calamari, sausage, dips cuttlefish, salads & much more. then came fish (bream?) a bit overdone but delish followed by the meat incl pork kebabs,lamb , sausage, etc, chicken, etc. all delish but frankly the amount of meat at the end was less than one would expect for the price, but by then ur already filled up on the mezze and that's the point of the mezze. its just a quibble really as i was full & had a grt time. mezze is social & 2 b shared and dipped into so it prob should form the basis of the evening. it was all delish with grt service. i am now a regular 4 their takeaway pork souvlaki (large) = 2 skewers of pork kebab with loads of salad + parsley @ £5.50. no dessert incl in fixed price which is a pity.

A really great restaurant, with quite outstanding food quality. Don't expect some lavish restaurant in an upmarket location, as the is a small restaurant at the back of a takeaway. Do not be fooled into comparing this with other takeaways, literally every Greek in North London comes here for quality food.

Just go for the Meze but make sure you are hungry, as the food will just keep coming. Fantastic experience and second to none, go experience a mouthful of Cyprus.

Only request to the management would be try to get the larger Keo bottles again.

We went to Vrisaki last night. was my first visit in 21 years! and it didnt disapoint. We had a lovely welcome. The staff were fantastic. it felt like good old fashioned restaurant hospitality. The food was mouth watering. we ordered the meze the courses were spaced out so we had time to digest the endless stream of food. Needless to say we could not finish the final course as we were bursting. This restaurant has a lovely atmosphere. we will be returning. Thanks for a wonderful evening.

Vrisaki is one of the remaining traditional Greek/Cypriot restaurants in North London. In a traditional setting, well-known Greek dishes from several types of mezes to souflaki are served in a friendly atmosphere. London is nowawadays full of modernised restaurants with good decoration and impressive menus, Vrisaki is old style but it is well able to stand against the changing times due to consistency in maintaining standarts, a rich menu, generosity and good service.

Vrisaki is a family run business. Mezes are fresh and innovative, main courses are quite generous. Set menu for two costs for 38 pounds; This generous tasting menu however can be overwhelming as the 5 servings are very generous indeed. For this reason I advise not to opt for set menu if you are not really hungry or wishing to taste examples from the Greek cousine. Service is friendly as well. The wine list has a good list of Greek vines.

Fantastic! So unassuming from outside but it comes a live larger than life once you walk through the door. No wonder this was in a quiet street because reckon they were all in here! Friendly welcome and you feel like you just arrived at a big house party for dinner. Great service, quick, efficient and very friendly even though very busy. No long wait for food or drinks.... We had meze which was amazing....so much to eat and delicious..Couldn't fault a thing! Would highly recommend you book as we had been advised too and booked the week before which was even then booking up fast.....felt like for one night only I had returned to my Greek holiday!!! Superb..
