“Very good place for souvlaki/grilled dishes!”
Reviewed 11 July 2012

This is a very good place for souvlaki. Located in the outskirts of Nicosia (Latsia) offers outdoor seating, good food and quick service. We tried chicken souvlaki and sheftalia which we found very good. Chicken souvlaki itself I wouldn't rate it with top marks as everybody is doing here, neither I found it the best ever. It was very good indeed but not something exquisite. Sieftalia was yum! We enjoyed also A LOT the grilled halloumi. Along with your choice of souvlaki it comes anyway a greek salad, pitta bread, some appetizers (olives. tahini, tzatziki & beetroots with cellery in vinegar sauce) and french fries. Personnel was very friendly (we went on a week day which it seems there is not the confusion of the weekend that the majority is commenting on). I could figure out there is a slight attitude behaviour though when I asked, as soon as we arrived, if we can sit anywhere outside (being quite early in the evening and place was almost empty). It gets full quite quickly though and I was surprised to see enough tables full even it was a week day.
Price was is ok. It could be slightly cheaper as it is a souvlaki place and not even a tavern with the real meaning of the word. You go out to a tavern and get full meze with almost the same price.
Portions are good and generally for what it is it's of a VERY good standards (atmosphere-wise and quality). Definitely going back (to eat there or for take away). I highly recommend it.

“Probably the best souvlaki and sieftalia in Nicosia. Problems with service though.”
Reviewed 17 April 2012

As said above i believe that it is probably the best in Nicosia. Portions are more than you can handle and the taste is unique. But when it gets busy you are never sure that you will eat on time or even eat what you have ordered. Usually clashes arise between the family that runs the place. Unfortunately this happens in front of customers and people that wait for take away. Two times we ordered and never got the things we wanted because by the time our turn came they were out of sieftalia and chicken souvlaki. Been a witness of arguing between the family and it was not a good scene to watch.
Still, you need to try it. Order on a week day for take away and order well in advance to make sure you get what you want.

“The best chicken souvlaki in town!”
Reviewed 10 October 2011

The chicken and pork souvlaki are marinated to perfection. They come in big chunks that don't dry out and remain juicy. Fun to watch the whole family in action behind the counter!
