One review said: “I am semi Hellenic and Vegan, so not an easy customer! I had Gigantes (big beans) in a rich tomato sauce. The owner also kindly recommended an additional dish, Spinach and Rice. All came with bread.

“The food here is excellent and easily as good as what my yia yia would make. High praise. For me it is better than the city centre alternatives.

“Ambience is lovely, amazing traditional decoration.”
