Tougher economics mean I’m attempting to diversify this section with meals that suit all budgets, but price isn’t the only reason I’d recommend this place. The style of food promotes sharing (with tongs and cutlery made of actual metal); the cuisine’s recognisably Greek and the fine print reads it’s better for you, unless salt is a problem. Staff are helpful and friendly, making this an easy place to go Greek for the first time. The Family Platter ($32.95) is a steal for the price; it includes two dips (Tzatziki’s great and garlicky), a fresh salad with tasty tomatoes and crisp cucumber, chicken and lamb, very good chips, and a choice of grilled haloumi or meatballs (take the tasty cheese). The chicken bests the lamb; the grilled pita bread bests everything. You can also eat the tasty grilled bread in four pita-wrapped souvlaki in the Family Stimulus Pack ($19.95) which feeds four with chips and a 1.25L drink. Locally baked Greek sweets – Kataifi or Galaktoboureko ($4.95 with coffee) – were the real surprise here, accompanied by a well-blended Frappe ($3.50). The window seat gave me a perfect view of their neighbouring Sword of Damocles – a red and white Colonel. Choose life, eat Greek.
