Being of Greek background myself I found the food extremely poor in quality. We ordered a range of mezedes and wow the octopus and calamari came out in 4 minutes! The octopus was tasteless and uncooked. We found the salad quite expensive for 4 pieces of tomato and a couple of pieces of feta that wasn't even greek...Although the large table at the front seemed to be having fun and going along with the music the ambience was just not there. The music was very loud to the point that on a table of four we could not hear each other. Shame as I was looking forward to finding a local place to hang out...perfect for customers that have not tasted actual greek food before...and so expensive for what they have to offer. Quite friendly service...although they charged us for a plate we hadn't ordered...not going back

Came here recently with a large group of people and we all had an amazing time.
The food was wonderful and authentic and a great quantity for your money!
The live band was a great touch and really added to the experience.
The staff were very friendly and attentive even though it was a very busy night.
Overall it was great and I recommend it to all! :)

Food wasn't too bad but was charged for things we didn't order. Would recommend for special occasions such as a birthday, but not more than once a year.

We booked for a party of 11 turned up and had a great spot - we book early and the food and drink came out fast. it was great. The only thing I struggle is with bookings - i stressed that most of the party were bigger people and that we would need appropriate sized spaces at the table. It was a relief that three people werent able to make it as the rest of us took up the space and ate comfortably - if the three people did turn up it would have been a terrible evening - we would have had to link arms to eat with knife and fork!
the food was excellent, no one complained about the service or quality as it was faultless. I would go again.

We arrived early for our evening booking as we were concerned about parking (we parked in the car park quite close to the restaurant which is on the busy King George's Road). Arriving early we were able to see the restaurant almost empty - it looked so sparkling clean, the cutlery on the tables simply shone, the whole scene was a wonderful atmosphere. As the evening progressed the restaurant became full and the space is limited so that on a hot day outside, it soon became a little uncomfortable.
However, all the staff were so friendly to all the patrons, greeting everyone warmly and wait staff were efficient with satisfying our needs and delivering our dishes promptly.
The menus were quite attractive although well-used.The food itself was well presented in the Greek style, hot, and very tasty, although the helpings were enormous. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and hope to return soon.
