Leeds city centre is actually rather short on Greek restaurants, so with it being my favourite cuisine I was excited to try this place out.
This is actually the second time I’ve eaten here, the first experience being after it had just opened, and had moussaka which was a bit on the dry side. However they seem to have revised their menu since I last ate here, and this more recent experience was much better with us enjoying succulent kebabs with live Greek music.
For starters we had calamari and the loukaniko, a special Greek sausage made from pork and flavoured with fennel and orange.
The sausage had a great flavour but came exactly as it was – this starter really could have done with some bread rather than being a plate of meat. The calamari on the other hand was delicious and fresh tasting, as good as any you’d get on the seafront restaurants on holiday.
Next came kebabs, we all opted for the mixed kebab, some chicken and lamb, some lamb and halloumi. The portions were generous and the meat was very tender and tasty.
The chips had an odd spice rub on them however which made them taste a bit processed, but still edible and great for dipping in the side serving of tzatsiki. They also came with a generous pitta bread which was great for soaking up the meat juices, and a crispy side salad.
For four people and two bottles of very nice Greek wine our meal worked out at around £25 per head which is excellent value for the centre of Leeds and the portions we were given. I’d definitely eat here again and try some of the stews and mezzes they also offered on the menu.
