It was crammed and overpriced. Our waiter had an attitude and our food took awhile. My $11 cocktail didn’t taste very good. The food was good, but not for the price. They gave us free Greek cookies at the end, but overall the experience was forgettable and we won’t be going back.

Our visit was the second time at VAS Kouzina. The service is really excellent and even the management staff inquired about how we were being taken care of. Our son-in-law is Greek and he highly recommends the restaurant to everyone. The selections are plentiful and very authentic Greek cuisine. Parking is the only issue however that applies across the board in Roswell. Keep up the great food experience you have going on. Your reputation will continue to flourish.

This was my first time to this restaurant, and I was blown away! My wife lived in Greece for a year so we let her order lots of different things for the table and took our chances. The result was fantastic! Also, great atmosphere and outstanding service. We will be back for sure!

It was a reunion of friends and our waiter Clay was quick to make the gathering fun and enjoyable. Clay offered excellent suggestions and he even started us out with a sampling of three Greek Wines as we determined our preferences.

This was a Tuesday night and the place was hopping! Great service from everyone. Owner stopped by to also check on us.

VAS Kouzina
As recent new neighbors to the Roswell/ East Cobb area we were delighted with our first trip to VAS Kouzina! Having been to Greece a couple times and lovers of great Greek restaurants in both San Francisco New York, it was a treat to find such a wonderful restaurant so close to our home. Both the food and service were excellent: Tzatziki and Saganaki we’re excellent appetizers. We split the moussaka and a Greek salad for entrées – both were terrific!
Wendy, our server was very helpful guiding us through the menu and taking care of us for the evening. Lastly, they serve a mild but excellent Retsina! I know there are a few followers of this distinct wine, but I love it! I recommend you get there early as once the restaurant is full, it’s a bit noisy. Great experience! We highly recommend VAS Kouzina!

Tables are so close together it is hard to move around. Such a small place that noise level is way to loud to hear the people at your table. We will only go back if we can sit outside.

Three visits down and many more to go. Great food and lovely service every time we come. Everything is so fresh, bright, comforting yet interesting. We just order apps and spreads and small plates and tiny gyros until we cant take another bite! Awesome place to go with friends or family, particularly if you like to share.

Great food, the best Tzaziki sauce I have ever had and I this is not something I would normally notice, it was that good. The food was excellent, this is the third time and it is always this good. Met the owner who is totally focused on quality of food and service.

Our first visit to VAS Kouzina was a wonderful experience. The staff is so friendly and helpful. The owner and chef came out and greeted us at our table. Wendy, our server, gave us some recommendations that were perfect. We had the whole grilled snapper and it was outstanding!!! We will be back soon?

We have been here three times in the past year, never going back. Pricing is generally high for very average food. The service from Austin was the high point, he was attentive and friendly and timely. The manager seemed put off by my conversation with her about prior visits and the host staff struggling with their reservation system, very defensive and she put a bad end to the evening.

My only suggestion is adding wines that aren’t imported from Greece. Not everyone likes Greek wine.

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.

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!
