Description: Small but cozy is the only way to describe it with seating capacity of up to 40 persons. With the vibrant blue & white colour scheme, traditional Greek mouth watering dishes and OUZO, METAXA, RETSINA, MYTHOS & KEO beers, we feel sure 'Zorba The Greek' will transport you to a place you once were (or want to be) on a Greek island somewhere in the Med....The TOTAL Greek experience right in the heart of Chelmsford! At Zorba The Greek, what you see is what you get, basically, we are a down to Earth, Greek village style 'Taverna' with a pleasant traditional homely feel. We pride ourselves on our excellent freshly cooked meals and our overwhelmingly successful 'MEZE' but don't take our word for it, come and try for yourself. We feel sure, once tried, never forgotten!

Wow! What a hidden gem! We popped into Zorba The Greek on the way back from the train station one evening to pick up a takeaway menu as it looked simple but authentic. The staff were very friendly and we ordered a takeaway this evening, which was very speedy and the most delicious takeaway we've had in Chelmsford (we haven't ordered greek before but it was very tasty!). We ordered the lamb and chicken souvlaki with roast potatoes. The food was great value, and again the staff were extremely friendly and knowledgeable.
We can't wait to eat in and try other dishes!
