We come Vas Kouzina several times a year. Our most recent visit was on Sunday September 29, 2019.

This is a a small restaurant - and can feel too crowded depending on where you are seated. Our table was out of the flow of traffic so we were pleased.

We started with the grilled octopus which, as usual, was outstanding - and we highly recommend it.

My wife ordered a small lamb gyro along with Orzo salad. The gyro was excellent. The orzo salad was tasty, but too dry - it clearly needed more oil.

I had the pastitsio which I thoroughly enjoyed. It was served hot and was tasty and moist.

For dessert we highly recommend their baclava cheesecake. It is superb!!

I appreciated the hostess seating us in a quieter booth as I had requested. I have a hearing loss so if there is too much noise, it makes it difficult to enjoy the conversation with my friends. Our table in a booth was perfect!

Our waiter was attentive, friendly and did a great job explaining the dishes on the menu. We enjoyed the flaming cheese dish, roasted vegetables and the gyro. Finished off our meal with the key lime pie dish- that we shared. I brought my husband home an order of octopus which he loved. Love the decor and the ambience. Will definitely be back. Thank you for a lovely evening.

Everything is great but not greek coffee I am afraid. But it is a small price for the great food, service and the atmosphere. I keep bringing friends to VAS and everybody gets hooked. What a gem!

Walked in for the first time for my birthday dinner. Apparently, at 6pm, you must request outdoor seating, which there is no place to do so on Open Table. Just happened to sit by the window, so there was opportunity to see there were at least two tables the entire time on the patio available while we were there. Didn't ruin our experience, but, as a first time visitor, it didn't leave the best taste in our mouth.
Service was fantastic. We had cocktails, smelts, the traditional Greek Salad and the fish prepared at the table. Our server was knowledgeable and very friendly. Not a huge deal, but she offered us a "very special dessert" for my birthday. We were happy to order it, however, we were also served the complimentary birthday dessert as well. And we were charged for the special dessert.
While it was a pleasant evening, there were some kinks. The food was delicious.

We love this place , food is consistently good. Service is good. We eat here about every 3 weeks. Last Friday we had reservations with you. They have this really crappy table which sits between 2 rooms which the porch room was completely empty and front room had a few full tables. And this is where he tries to sit us and I said what about the whole empty room and he said they had reservations so I said back we had reservations so he sat us elsewhere.Know one wants that table!!!The people doing the seating need to use their head.

Just a friends get together but amazing as usual! We all drove about an hour from midtown to eat here and it’s by far worth the traffic and drive! I’ve been to Greece three times in the past couple of years and this is the only place that brings me back to the Greek islands and countryside. The food here is as authentic as you can get in Atlanta and the service is always helpful and friendly. Our server tonight Clay, did a great job with being attentive and was always there when we needed him. I give my praise to Chef Vaz as he captures the essence of Greece and brings me back to my happy place. The owner is also so friendly and available, she came by to check on us and quickly sparked our interest talking about the place and giving us insights on some of the dishes on the menu that we hadn’t tried yet. She recommended so dishes that brought us back to Greece over and over again with every bite. I commend you all for keeping up the consistency and authenticity! Can’t wait to come back and enjoy so many of my favorite dishes.

Thank you so much! The Greek Coffee with the Mastiha was actually purchased in Greece and given to me by a friend. Next time you are there look for it! Enjoy your next trip and hope to have you come back and visit us before then.

This was our first time to Vas Kouzina. It is casual but wonderful and we loved it! My hubby is Greek/American and he raved about all the food ate. The shrimp saganaki was amazing and delicious, the eggplant starter delightful, the spanakopita was not soggy as most that we eaten and the Galaktoboureko dessert was out of this world. Vas Kouzina is more authentic than most Greek restaurants we've eaten in here in the Atlanta area. We highly recommend it! Our waiter, Clay, couldn't have been more accommodating and chose the perfect wine for us. The wines are Greek so we needed his attention to our tastes. Can't wait to return!

This was probably the best Greek food I have eaten in my 21 years in Atlanta. Souvlaki and Gyros were outstanding. Greek fries were superlative. Loukamades were a bit overdone, but overall, this was outstanding Greek food with simple but nice atmosphere.

The chairs are hard. The space is too crowded . The service is very good. My shrimp should have been served after table space was cleared after the fish were fillet . They were cold by the time I had space to eat them.

Best Greek food in all of Atlanta (at least)! This is not a gyro joint or a faux "Mediterranean" place, or even Greek-inspired gourmet like Kyma. This is Greek food like Grandma used to make, if she came from one of the islands. Eat here and you'll be booking your next vacation to the Aegean!

This was our first visit. Saganoki was way overcooked and stuck to the pan. Lamb chops were very fatty. Shrimp in sauce was great.

Classy. More than cuisine, it is an experience with chef doing presentation of fish and saganaki. Brought back memories. Only thing missing was Yiayia to read Greek coffee grounds !

First time getting a reservation -family of 4, place was packed and you do have to sit extremely close to others prob would not reccomend for a special occasion . . Had the flaming cheese - so good ! Kids had gyros ( loved the mini size for kids ), and potatoes . I had the squid ink fettuccine - the seafood was great but the sauce needed a bit more of a kick . Hubby had a salad and soup and spanikopita for the table . Food was awesome as was service . Next time we are ordering all messes though ! Great Greek wine list
