“Lovely family restaurant”
Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

Have loved in Balham for years and finally popped in here for dinner. Am a big fan of Greek food and this didn't disappoint. We had the set meze platter and the food kept coming and coming! The meatballs were incredible as were the prawns and meat kebabs. If you like Greek food you won't be disappointed!

“A Really Lovely Greek Restaurant”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

I can't recommend this place highly enough. I looked around on online for a Greek restaurant to celebrate our engagement as we had decided to be married in Greece. I'm so glad we found this restaurant as it was ideal! It is run by a lovely Greek-Cypriot family. They are able to take large numbers and it has a wonderful set meze menu which we found was great value for money.

The restaurant itself is really nice and feels just like a friendly taverna on a greek holiday! When we arrived we were greeted by the lovely owner and everyone was made very welcome. We were given a very comfortable area for our large group where we were all seated on one long table. We had a few people who were running late and they were happy to wait before serving food and at no point did we feel rushed. The service was spot on throughout the meal. They really went out of their way to make our evening perfect.

The set meze menu is really good value. The food just keeps coming! We got to try lots of different greek appetisers. The prawns and the calamari were particularly delicious. The mains were various Souvlaki meats which were juicy and tender and cooked perfectly! Everyone really enjoyed their food. Absolutely no complaints.

If you enjoy Greek food please don't hesitate to visit this restaurant.

“Unapologetic - no concept of customer service”
Reviewed 14 June 2014 via mobile

Owner run restaurant, food poor value for money. Owner messed up our order and blamed the kitchen staff, the missing dishes never arrived. Rather than apologising she included a 10% service charge on our bill... Won't be going back, plenty of better places to eat in balham.

“Shame about the food”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

The wonderful service could not be called into question, however the below average food was disappointing. The kebabs were dry, haloumi too salty and overall very bland. Shame, maybe time to change chef to produce some fresh, authentic food to go with the great front house service.
