The best souvlaki I've eaten in London! This time I tried the new SKEPASTI (means covered) which is basically like a club Sandwich but with Greek pita, gyros, cheddar, tomato, lettuce, fires and tzatziki! Very well cooked soft pita and chicken gyros was very very tasty! My friend had the lamb cutlets which also were very tender and crispy. Also found one of my favourite Greek wines there! Very friendly staff and neat clean space. Loved it!

Fabulous food, friendly young staff but rather slow. Bit of a café type atmosphere may need future consideration, but hey I repeat it food was superb.

A baffling visit. A sweltering day in London. We arrived to hardly any greeting. The small space was hot and stuffy, and looked no more than a caff. I asked: "Um.....is this it?"
[There's clearly space downstairs, as I see from photos online - but this wasn't offered.]
We decided not to stay in the airless space, and said to the waiter: "It's just far too hot here, sorry." No response.
Thankfully, we found a place up the road - cool, but with a warm welcome, and fabulous Persian music playing. The food was great; they gave us jug upon jug of water with lemon and mint, and even [though an alcohol-free business] were happy for us to grab some wine from the offie on the corner and bring it in - no corkage.
Proof that 'customer service' makes all the difference, maybe ?

Dear Cochyn, Sorry we have taken so much time to respond to this review. We appreciate every review even the negative ones and we take on board your comments. We did renovate in 2020 and we have moved all customer dining to the ground floor only, so there really is no downstairs dining. We have further updated the decor and ensured an ambient temperature throughout. If you happen to be passing again, please do pop in and see us and try some of our new seasonal menu items. Thanks

Food was fast in coming and plentiful (almost too much!) olive bread on the house was a highlight. Let down slightly by cramped table in a corner.

The restaurant appears to be a simple takeaway from the street level. There is a small dining area downstairs but its basic and not particularly nice. Once we were seated, we were told that the kitchen was closed and over half the menu was unavailable. They didn't suggest something had broken and we suspected, given was a Saturday night, that they dont actually do the other food and rely on the grill and cold mezes. This may be cynical but check before going that the full menu will be available.

Complete mess up with food and waiter didn't seem to know what to do. We had to call him over eventually to take our order. He completely ignored the young couple next to us and had to be called over to them too to take their order. When our order arrived the salad had been forgotten so we had to ask where it was. After another 20 minutes when the couples starter hadn't arrived they had to chase for it. Then when their main course arrived, only one meal was delivered to them. The other still hadn't arrived after 5 minutes and again the waiter had to be asked for it (no apology). It took 20 minutes to arrive (with no apology) by which time a) the young man had pretty much eaten his and b) I had given my salad to her because I was so embarrassed that she was having to just sit there. I complained on paying and the reaction was just a bit of a shrug. My impression was that they were so busy coping with takeaway orders that the diners were less important.

Nice greek place. Looks can be deceiving as it looks like a small cafe from outside. But they have lower ground floor seating.

Ok, the food is good! The woman who waited on us was friendly. The rest of the staff seemed scary. They all just stare at you and look mad all the time.

What really makes me give this restaurant a fair rating is the non-stop food delivery people wearing helmets who flow in and out! They are very rude, very pushy and the restaurant pays more attention to them than the paying customers who are sitting there.

Do yourself a favor if you dine here, eat downstairs. We made the mistake of dining upstairs.
