The authentic Greek menu, designed by acclaimed Greek chef Elias Mamalakis, features traditional Greek delights such as Baked Feta, Pita Burgers, Fresh Herb and Vegetable Salad, Suvlaki Wraps, and of course, olives, pita bread and tzatziki.
To ensure the suvlaki is as tasty as it can be, the meat is delivered fresh and prepared daily, with the best cuts chosen for the skewers. The suvlakis (meat skewers) are cooked on a robata-style grill with top quality charcoal without using chemicals or additives, just pure, highly carbonized wood.
For those who like to enjoy wine with their meal, there is a small wine menu, which features only four wines, however, the Alpha Estate Malagouzia 2014 (£6 per glass), which had floral aromas and melon and lychee flavours, was light and lovely and complemented the food nicely.
During my visit I decided to try a bit of everything, so I could indulge in the full experience! My friend and I enjoyed the Exuberance Sharing Platter (£34.00 for two to share), which featured 2 x mini wraps, 2 x skewers, 4 x sides and 1 x pita burger, however, I substituted the pita burger for lamb burgers stuffed with feta, which were ridiculously delicious!
All of the items we tried were fresh and flavourful and I'd happily eat all of the dishes again. So, what were our favourites? To summarise:
The atmosphere was very relaxed and the staff were all exceptionally friendly. I also liked that you can watch your food being prepared, so you know that everything is as fresh as possible.
I will definitely be back the next time I find myself searching for quick, easy and delicious food in Soho!
