The lamb dinner (house specialty) was very tender and a good portion of meat along with rice, a potato and some warm tomato with green beans. We also shared a very good spanakopita as an appetizer. The flaming cheese is always a nice start too!...More

We used to eat here often when we lived in the area. The menu hasn't changed in many years - I'd recommend the saganaki, moshari, and the house wine. The food is very good.

A great little Greek restaurant in Shopping Centre. Wonderful food and service with a smile. The Greek salad was delicious as was the Souvlaki plate that we shared. If you like Greek food then it won't disappoint. Do not be frightened by the location.

This is a great little place, family owned, with an intimate atmosphere and great food. Don't let the suburban-mall setting fool you. The service is attentive without being overbearing or rushed and the food is delicious. It's a small place, though, so make reservations if...More

Diner prices with 5 star cooking Prawns in lemon and garlic were great, just needed some bread to soak up the sauce..... Lamb chops 3 for $12 were great, served with an excellent Greek salad
