Both the food and the atmosphere were good - the best spanakopita I have had outside Greece! Our fussy 6 year old really enjoyed his chicken Kabab!

Truly a wonderful Greek dining experience. The setting is colourful and lively and on this Sunday we were entertained by a very talented veiled dancer while we enjoyed a delectable calamari appy. The main courses and salads didn't disappoint and were succulent, flavourful, savoury and delicious. Outside, on the spit, was leg of lamb and the enticing aromas wafted throughout... More

We love the calamari battered in corn or potato starch rather than wheat breading. It is light and very tasty and Yiama's makes it excellent. As well the lamb kebobs are excellent. Lamb dinner is a generous portion. As with most restaurants should offer more Tzikiki sauce included.
