Tougher economics mean I’m attempting to diversify the places I dine so I show meals that suit all budgets, but price isn’t the only reason I’d recommend this place. The style of food promotes sharing (with tongs and cutlery made of actual metal); the cuisine’s recognisably Greek and the fine print reads it’s better for you unless salt is a problem. Staff are helpful and friendly, making this an easy place to go Greek for the first time.
The Family Platter ($32.95) is a steal for the price.
It includes two dips (Tzatziki’s great and garlicky), a fresh salad with tasty tomatoes and crisp cucumber, chicken and lamb, very good chips, and a choice of grilled haloumi or meatballs (take the tasty cheese).
The chicken bests the lamb; the grilled pita bread bests everything.
You can also eat the tasty grilled bread in four pita-wrapped souvlaki in the Family Stimulus Pack ($19.95) which feeds four with chips and a 1.25L drink.
Locally baked Greek sweets - Kataifi or Galaktoboureko ($4.95 with coffee) - were the real surprise here, accompanied by a well-blended Frappe ($3.50).
The window seat gave me a perfect view of their neighbouring Sword of Damocles – a red and white Colonel.
Choose life, eat Greek.
