“Authentic Greek Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

Really tasty food cooked well and as everyone has commented on, very large serves. We ordered the meat platter that was suggested was for 2 people to share, thought it was pricey @$80 but it was recommended to us by the waitress. It was truly massive and was plenty for even 4 people just on its own. Had enough left overs for another meal! The zucchini balls and lamb chops were also excellent. Our party of 6 also ordered grilled octopus, mixed reviews, either loved it or it was ok, and the saganaki prawns- ok if you like that style. It was on a Sunday night and there was a 50th birthday as well. As other reviewers have commented on, packed in like sardines, very busy ,very very noisy but the waitresses were excellent- Friendly, smiling and checking on us regularly to make sure everything was ok. All in all glad we tried it, even though needed to book 5 weeks ahead!

“Yummy food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

Really good value and very large servings. Lots of large platters of lamb and beef souvlaki or seafood. Great entree or mezes such as saganaki and chicken wings as well as the typical Greek dishes. Depending on how hungry you are sharing a large meal is the best way to avoid leaving half your meal on the plate!

“Best authentic Greek food in Adelaide”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

The food here is sensational
Authentic Greek food and portions
Very easy to over order however the staff are happy for you to take left overs home
Staff are all family (or appear to be) so the polish of the better restaurants (Zucca / Eros) isnt there, however that's part of the atmosphere which makes it special
Hard to get in so book ahead

“Food not necessarily worth the wait...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

After trying on several occasions to make a booking at Kefi and being told they were booked out on my dates of choice, I opted to try them via takeaway instead.

Phoned my order through at 6:25pm and was told there would be a one hours wait (Thursday night, albeit Valentines Day), this was ok with me and I placed our order. Was disappointed that the spanikopita on the menu wasn't available.

When we arrived at the restaurant at 7:30 to collect our dinner there was a large amount of vacant tables and a long line of diners waiting to collect their meals. We proceeded to wait another 30 minutes, finally receiving our order around 8pm!!

The meal itself wasn't anything special, but they were large. If you order a main meal each, you will not need an entree. We made that mistake. My boyfriend, who often complains of meal size, even in generous restaurants couldn't get through his souvlaki. The meals were relatively tasty but fatty (bread fried in oil, greasy lamb cutlets), the salad wasn't a traditional Greek salad and the potatoes were mushy. Definitely not the best Greek meal I've had and after having to wait an hour and a half to eat it, we probably won't be going back.

“Magnificent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

Have just finished dinner at Kefi after recommendation from friend. One word to sum it up is magnificent. We had the meat platter for two for $80.00 and we have never seen so much food served for two people. We managed to eat some chicken yiros, half a quail, lamb cutlets some salad and potato and we were done, still had four pork ribs, four large souvlaki, half a quail and chicken wings to go plus salad and potatoes. Lunch tomorrow. Would come again and highly recommend. Need to book as restaurant full.
