Being a Greek South African I am delighted to finally have both Nandos (which is of course South African) and now a Greek place to eat as well, when my brother and I saw the signs dotted around town we knew we had to try it out. I am going to write this review with my English side of the family in mind as most customers to this place are undoubtedly British.
We were the only customers in at 3.15pm on a Monday afternoon so the atmosphere was a little dull. There was bouzouki music playing which added an authentic feel to the place and the decor was very well done. The Athenian waiter who served us however was a little reserved and didn't smile much while we were there but he did perk up a bit when we fumbled with what little of the Greek language we could remember from our childhood (which is about as much a typical tourist would pick up whilst on holiday in Greece).
We had no trouble deciding what we wanted to eat, the waiter was knowledgeable about an item on the menu that they had run out of which was good. I food itself was delicious, was very tasty and served in generous portions typical of the Mediterranean. We had grilled haloumi (the best I've had in years), stuffed peppers, chicken, lamb kofta, baklava and cheesecake and felt very full afterwards.
Very reasonable, typical high street prices. The total bill with cokes came to £43 which is what you would normally spend at Nandos for a comparable meal so no complaints there.
The service was slow, we were out at 4.30 this is inexcusable as we were the only people in there the whole time. Also while we were there we could hear the staff talking loudly in the kitchen which in our opinion was not very professional. They are a new restaurant so I think they need to sort these issues out before it becomes a long term bad habit as it was these 2 things that prevented me giving them 5 stars.
