Claypot Taverna in Sydney’s Kensington also offers plenty of grilled dishes like chicken supreme and king prawns, all tasty and made using the best ingredients. Order up a dish and see for yourself what makes Claypot Taverna so special, but make sure to book in advance.
Great food. More than we could manage. Large helpings. Service was warm and friendly. Lovely atmosphere and very relaxed. The claypot meal lived up to expectations.
Great service. Even better food! We will definitely be back as there is still plenty on the menu that we haven't tried. Good venue for small to medium groups who want a hearty meal.
I love this place. Great service amazing food. The claypots are the best! The closest thing to authentic greek food I have had outside of Greece. Get on it!!
My whole family loved this restaurant! The food was fresh and the flavours were fantastic. We especially liked the dips and pita bread as our starters. Atmosphere was pleasant, we'll be back!
Home style cooking not quite restaurant standards, friendly wait staff but not very experienced. We ordered the slow cooked lamb which took a very long time to come out, most restaurants have the "slow cooked" lamb cooked & ready to serve! Mousaka was cold in the middle and not very tasty, bland, little dry & boring.
Have been going there for years and always enjoyed and will come back for more. Love Con who always tries to make us happy. Great for summer casual dining tasty Greek family food
Great food. Great staff. Even had happy birthday performed by the owner with his guitar. The lamb clay pot and the prawns would be my choices again.
Food was great, nice touch with the complimentary bread, dip and olives, service good as well, but the NRL football match on the TV didn't add to the experience thou
Lovely food, friendly service and excellent value for money. Our group ate calamari, spinach and feta pastries and the clay pot lamb - delicious, home cooked taste to everything
Always a delicious dinner. Very hospitable and sensible serving of dishes. One dish at a time, so all food is hot. Well done, we will see you again soon
Wonderful food - arrive hungry! Both ordered lamb - both sighed were amazing. Even the pita bread & dips were to die for. Will definitely be back soon.
Great food. The mousaka was amazing. I will definitely be back soon to try something else from the delicious and authentic menu. Great that it's byo too !!
Really nice banquet, possibly too much food. The ownder was really helpful with gluten free options. Good place to take our children. Will definitely come back.
Beautiful wholesome family Greek food. There is nothing pretentious about this place but the food and the service are always excellent. We keep coming back.
Excellent food and service. Surroundings a little cramped but everything else fine. Parking was difficult - otherwise would have given a 6 out of 6.
Went with a group of 6. I had the octopus and thought it was very good. However the others didn't enjoy the food. The lamb was quite chewy. I would still go back for the octopus... and the Mythos
Poor service bc they were clearly understaffed, rude owner, still waiting for our salad. We were told that the restaurant was busy and they had run out of water? Food was ok but not great. Overall would I go back NO would I recommend it to my friends NO. I read other reviews so perhaps we got a bad night? Not sure but wouldn't risk it!
Unfortunately we had a very disappointing experience. The venue itself was dirty to say the very least and the arrogance of the owner/operator was outrageous. Dispite the food being tasty it did not make up for the atmosphere, filth of the taverna or the attitude of the owner. I do feel for the wait staff who were friendly.
Worst restaurant ever! The pita bread was drenched in oil and the chef had no idea what customer service means! Told is too leave when we gave him the feedback about the pita.
