“Greek food festival!”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

Ate here on a Saturday evening. Upon recommendation from a friend, tried the tasting menu (mezzes). The tasting menu for 2 fed all 4 of us with leftovers. Lemon potatoes were the best I've had outside Athens (been there). Overall, there were 14 plates of food. The dolmades were home-made, lamb was grilled to perfection, haloumi, tabbouleh, tahini, fabulous calamari, etc. Didn't try anything that I didn't like. Wine was great. Waiters had everything timed excellently; never had to say that we were ready for the next round or for water. Prices were excellent. Wish I lived closer, as I would be here frequently!

“Solid Local Greek Food”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

My go to for reasonably priced and flavorful Greek near my apt. The lemon potatoes are killer and the their gyro or chicken kebab platter is enough for two.

“Great greek place in a land of good competition.”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

Astoria is known for it's authentic Greek and Cypriot culture as well as cuisine, and this place stands out amongst the competition. I always try to go there for the roasted beets over horiatiki salad with hard boiled egg and potatoes. That or the Aliada salad with grilled octopus is great with an order pork souvlaki. Great prices, great food and european feeling outdoor sidewalk seating make this place fantastic. The service is terrible in a comforting way.

“Big portions, great prices!”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

Aliada offers authentic Greek food on big plates for a good price. Around $14 for a main dish that comes with 2 sides, usually enough for two to split or for one to have a proper lunch of leftovers the next day. Highly recommend the beet salad, lemon potatoes, spinach pie, and gyro. The service has always been very good as well.
