“Basic Home-style Greek Food”
Reviewed August 16, 2010

I eat here several times a year. The lamb shank is my usual choice for lunch. It is tender and tasty. The sauce is not overpowering, allowing the flavor of the lamb to come through nicely. The meal includes rice and a good sized salad all on the same plate. The moussaka is also tasty. The spanakopita is not as crisp as I like, but everyone has their own preferences. The decor is basic, but since I'm here for the food, it doesn't bother me and it won't bother you either unless you're trying to impress a date. Athens Market is nicer and has better food, but then you'll also pay considerably more for the location and decor. Depends on what your aiming for. Both beat Daphne's hands down.
