Truely wonderful experience. Don’t let the set price menu deter you. It’s worth every single cent and more. Service was fun and knowledgeable, food was creative and up there with one of the best restaurant experiences. Well done chef and team.

pleasant staff, the surroundings were very relaxing, the time constraint was a little disappointing. The food that we shared was excellent and just enough, my only disappointment was the cocktails, two of us had a type of espresso martini which was nearly all froth and very small. Overall, the experience was enjoyable.

About the restaurant
A family friendly, modern Greek restaurant. Catering to dietaries, large bookings or private functions, as well as takeaway options. It is so natural for the Greeks to be drawn to hospitality roles that there is even a word with deep historical significance to describe it. ‘philoxenia’ ~ translating to ‘friend of a stranger’ (philos: friend and xenia: stranger). It is accepted as synonymous with hospitality, a willingness to share hospitality generously, and is even suggested to be part of the Greek DNA. When you dine at KALA you are no longer a stranger. You become part of the family. Kali Orexi!
