Went with group of very special friend to celebrate my 50th birthday. Yams did not disappoint . We had a wonderful night and the food was fantastic
Saturday night feast with friends from the far side of town - Fabulous service, high quality food and great feel - still feeling very full the next day!!!! Thank you!
Great service / great food (meat was juicy and tender/ good prices. Will back in two weeks. Dips nice meat platter my fav. Beats Italian food any day.
Fantastic service and the food is everything you want and more :) have been to this place nearly two weeks in a row and both times it was to die for.
Food was amazing, and great value for money. Great vibe and atmosphere. Staff need to be a little more attentive, we always felt like we were trying to get their attention, when our water ran out, or we wanted to order extra things etc.
Not a bad restaurant. Just need to pay little attention to detail..prawns in seafood platter tasted little funky, maybe then weren't fresh...meat platter was good but we didn't receive rissoles as per menu, not a problem but chef or waitress didn't even say anything about it. The frappe and Greek coffee were undrinkable... regardless of a few negatives it was still a pleasant place too eat.
The atmosphere and service was outstanding. We went with the fresh seafood theme and were given a free sample fishball dish. It and the sauces were delicious. Definitely worth a visit on a "date night" for this couple
It was our 1st time trying greek style food with our kids and lets just say it was amazing we will definitely be comming back again lovely warm cosy atmosphere and staff wer really nice and helpful.
A very nice atmosphere and generous serves. We ordered mixed dips, prawns and chicken skewers. Everything was great except for the chicken (a bit overcooked and dry) and the pita bread, which was freshly baked but oily. Smiling and courteous staff. Give it a try.
Delicious food , staff are excellent very friendly and attentive , the restaurant has a lovely atmosphere , we thoroughly enjoyed our visit and will return soon!
