“Kleftiko even better than in Greece”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

Firstly everyone says welcome, then you are escorted to your table and you get a huge menu with so many things to choose from, that it's hard to decide. You could easily go for a week every day without being bored.
We took an eisbein (typically African like a huge 800g pork belly with a perfectly roasted crust) and a kleftiko (a Greek version of a lamb shank with Mediterranean and middle eastern spices on it). Both were to die for and some Greek restaurants in Greece should ask for this recipe. It was so good that we went back the day after for some Greek mezze starters and both took the kleftiko.
They also have a great system for the wine : go and choose and the prices are determined by the colour of the sticker on the bottle. Easy and extremely low prices.

“Good food & atmosphere!”
Reviewed March 5, 2014 via mobile

We went to TheGreek after the restaurant next door were full having a pensioners special.....well what a pleasant surprise! Food was great, staff was polite and the atmosphere most relaxing...now we are glad that we ended at TheGreek in stead of next door...more sophisticated and character and will recommend at all times!

“Yum Yum Yummy!”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

Ok, as locals (and from the hospitality industry) we tend judge quite harshly but boy were we pleased with our meals! After a rocky start due to a distracted waitress and the time it took to get our coffee and G&T (and not together) we were feeling kinda down...

But soon after that our mains arrived and I believe we chose the best items on the menu. The Eisbein is huge and deliciously tender, tastes amazing with it's sides of sour kraut, mash and mustard. Then the lamb shank is a definite winner - the meat falls right off the bone, seasoned to perfection and served with a crisp salad and potato wedges... mmmmm
The portions are generous so we have some titbits for tomorrow's lunch too!

Have also eaten here before but was blown away this evening.
Thanks George for the amazing meal!

“BEST service ever!”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

We walked in very late after a game of Night Put-Put, and we knew we were pushing our luck with a table, however, our waiter said no problem, he will get us a table and we got our drinks and food in such a good time, pizza is VERY filling! They didn't rush us at all, will def, go back!!

“great food and friendly efficient service”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

We had fresh delicious food from a wide menu with generous portions and good service, in fact the owner came round and asked how our meal was. I could have eaten here every day.
