“Great food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

I am a vegetarian, but still enjoy this restaurant! Delicious food and Baklava!
Just beware that the place is small and you do not get privacy if that is what you are looking for.

“Soul satisfying Greek Food !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

Love love love this place ! The wall art with Santorini's beautiful landscape..the table mats with the country's and the islands map and ofcourse the sumptuous food..makes this the best spot for Greek food. Wondering about the prices?- they are friendly to your pockets too !

The best way to try few things together is to order the Sampler Plate - Taramosalata, hummus and eggplant salad are definitely my favs. Their fried eggplant is to die for. Wrap them in the Pita with some tzatziki..So good ! Having tried Greek food back in Greece; their gyros are as authentic as they can get. The meat is so flavorful and well done..a bite into the Gyro, you can taste the warm Pita..so fresh..slightly crispy..followed by the meat (ground beef and lamb is the best) and ending with the tzatziki sauce-home made, always fresh and creamy...Mmmmm my taste-buds are salivating already !!

However, on the service front they can do a lot better. I categorize this place as a restaurant I go to because the food is fantastic but service is pathetic. Every time you need something, it takes 10-15 minutes to get a server's attention. Very rarely do they stop by themselves, since they are always so busy chatting with each other. Oh well..as long as I get those Gyros, I really don't care about anything else. The gyros make my soul so happy and satisfied that nothing in the world matters anymore.

PS: They offer free pita bread at the beginning of the meal. Pay a dollar or so extra, but get the warm (grilled) Pita's..so so good that you will never eat those cold pitas again!

“Excellent Mediterranean food and good prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

This family Greek dinner is right on Mass av. The place feels and serves home-made cousin.
Prices are totally reasonable and the food is very good. Cleanness can improve a bit.
We recommend the ‘Sampler Plate (for Two)’ appetizer which is a great way to try many Greek tests; portion is generous and food is palatable. For main dish we had the ‘Broiled Butterfly Shrimp’ which were cooked whole and preserved their flavor.

“Greek goddess”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013 via mobile

I've Been wanting to go here for sometime, and finally did for a quick lunch on sunday. I ordered the corner special gyro. It's a beef and lamb gyro with the usual lettuce, tomatoes and tzatziki sauce. The sauce was incredible! Truly makes the sandwich. Will be back. The only negative is parking, since its on mass ave in Cambridge.

“Gyro Gyro Gyro!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2013

Saw Green Corner Restaurant mentioned on a local food program and checked it out on a week night. Service was fast and friendly. The gyro is shaved beef and lamb - stacked in layers on one massive kebab over the grill they shave just the right crispy pieces off. Mmmmmmm. And the baklava which I don't even normally like, was the best in my life, heavenly. To think I walked past this a 100 times ... I'll be back !
