    For a greek restaurant quality of food very poor. Saganaki chewy. Meat poor. It just seems chefs have no knowledge of how Greek food should be spiced etc etc

    Service was terrible. Meals were all delivered at different times, the longest almost an hour after ordering. When we questioned staff on this, he said all food takes different cook times which wasn’t correct as 2 people on the table ordered sand thing and got them 15 mins apart. I also thought it was a chefs job to make sure all meals were ready at same time. Saving grace was that food when it finally arrived was great

    The restaurant had been recommended to me & the food did not disappoint. Unfortunately for us there was a staffing issue & only one person to serve quite a busy crowd. She was delightful & efficient but we did have to wait a considerable time for initial service. It was unfortunate but the food was excellent.

    It was a busy night when we were at the restaurant, our main meal was given to another table and lost , how ever once the waitress was made aware that we were still waiting the manager came to the table and offered us free drinks and free desert , which made up for the time we waited ( which wasn’t excessive) the food quality was worth the wait having said all that

    What a fantastic restaurant. The host who showed us to the table was so friendly and our server was very attentive even though it was a very busy night. The food was delicious, we had the octopus and meat platter. The vibe was good, however sometimes the live music was slightly too loud. Overall we had a wonderful time and will be back.

    It’s very good quick service especially if you need to eat quickly pre concert. We were sitting right near the live music which almost made conversation impossible. We have ordered a table outside next time as the balcony is enclosed! We had the mixed lamb and chicken gyros and it’s easily enough for 2 people

    Everything was really really salty. I went with Greek friends and they did not like it at all. Dips were not authentic and the meat very dry. Calamari was the only good bit from the banquet. Staff very slow to clear plates. Took them nearly an hour to clear our plates, despite them looking at our table all the time. Was not until we stacked our own plates did they decide to clear the table. Very noisy but that can't be helped when there are tables of young (18th birthday) guys drunk. All up a very bland, salty night.

    Food took aver 45 minutes to arrive, which was very dissapointing. Staff did not control or temper a large young group of (half drunk) people, who were carrying on in an inappropriate manner, upsetting tables around them.

    The food was fine but overall the service poor. The waitress asked us whether we wanted the mains AFTER the entrees to which we chorused YES! Instead all the food arrived together, with another waiter. We were not happy and sent the mains back to be held over. This lack of co-ordination marred our YASSAS experience. Gary Coles

    Great food, though a little too much. Better to pay less and get less to avoid waste. Derive could have been a little more prompt with more attention to customers given it was a quiet evening.

    Overly priced for what you get, ordered chicken mango salad, it came with 3 tiny pieces of mango but plenty of pineapple?? Did not indicate this on menu. Size portions were very poor also. Pricing of octopus in entrees, $28, yet only 6-8 tiny pieces. Really?? Entrees could be priced alot better for what you get, even though I cant fault the quality of the food. The service wasnt the best, did not clear plates/glasses when empty, it was hard to get waiters' attention.

    We've eaten here frequently but this time the experience was not good. We were given a table for 6 close to the band even though we were a party of 4, and booked days before. When we asked to be moved (several times) to a quieter table we were told that it was not possible because they were fully booked. When we left after our meal there were still many empty tables! Service was poor by clearly inexperienced staff (even taking into account the current difficulties restaurants have in finding staff) The grilled lamb was delicious but other food was not up to the previous standards. The spanakopita in particular was overcooked. Disappointing
