I really enjoyed my visit to this restaurant, the staff were accommodating and the food was delicious. We ordered a sharing meal for two which was good value for money and the food was served on what looked like a tiered cake stands, (very nice presentation). The only problem with this restaurant was how small the tables were. It was... More

We visited here after a theatre matinee and not having a reservation were lucky to get a table. The space is quite limited and makes eating an intimate experience with other diners. That aside we were pleased to be seated and our order was taken quickly. Drinks arrived promptly followed by the food and that is where the problem lies.... More

Cheap so-called Greek food all dripping in oil, very small portions and the place was so cold I thought we were sitting in an ice cube as the heating was down. The toilets were in need of a good cleaning too. 2 *stars for Ok service though would never like to visit this place again.

Nice humous and good amount of bread given, the custard dessert was good too. However the main was a let down because the lamb was chewy and the service was true. I would go back, I've had much better Greek food elsewhere.

Although we had the worst table in the restaurant (right by the door) , it was wet & windy, people constantly coming in waiting for their tables , literally surrounding our table, they were practically sitting with us! But still rate it 4* as the food was soo delish, and such great value! I think if we were sat elsewhere... More

Visited for dinner on 25th February and absolutely loved it! We were seated right next to the door which people kept opening and leaving wide open despite being asked politely by the waiter to close it. As it was a wet and windy night this was quite annoying but we were offered a different table (without even asking) before our... More

TripAdvisor 'near me now' App guided my wife and I to this gem of a Greek restaurant for a delicious lunch. We chose to do the lunch special instead of a la carte. It seems the approach is to mix and match mezzo style Greek food which is served on a small tower. Two meals of juicy minced lamb perfectly... More

On 24 Feb 2017, I tried to get in the restaurant in Covent Garden. The restaurant is small however there were a few tables apparently free. As soon as I opened the door to ask if was possible to get a table for 3 people, one of the waiters shouted across the restaurant to shut the door. I tried to... More
