Very disappointed wouldn't visit again. Sat opposite the opening for the pot wash, love looking at sodden cardboard and dirty plates all night, not! Came in earlier in the week to change my table time moving it back by one hour when I arrived I was told I was late. Love the brand but not this restaurant.

Friendly service with amazing food - we really enjoyed the experience.

Very pleasant experience food and service wise, however the booking was for 5 people and the booth really only fitted 4 people comfortably, bit of a squeeze with 5.

Excellent location and really nice decor and lots of seating as well as available seating outside ( but still under cover )which I would recommend in the summer months. Staff are polite and friendly.
The music is far too loud for diners. It should be just background music, had to ask to turn it down so we could hear ourselves talk!
Food is lovely although portions are quite small for the price, I feel the portions were reduced due to the 25% off all food offer.

Great evening. Waiter was fabulous and informative.

Loved the new decor - lighter and brighter and more Greek! We are vegetarians and had the Pelopponese Meze with vegetarian options. All were delicious and we ate every last crumb. The falafels were freshly prepared and particularly good, as were the Gigandes Plakis. We finished off with mango sorbet - perfect way to end a perfectdini g experience.

Lovely food, great service.

Greeting very warm and pleasant on entering the restaurant and the staff were friendly though were almost a bit too "Greek" in that it wasn't easy to catch the attention of the waiting staff for extra drinks (we're not a hard drinking or rowdy crew) and getting coffee and desserts was a bit of a trial. That's the only downside - the food covered every aspect of Greek cuisine and was uniformly delicious and fresh. Feta, flat bread, lamb kefte, taramasalata, tsatziki to die for. So I recommend highly but be ready to campaign for the waiters' attention ... when you do get it, they're really good.
