Overpriced Kebab, belly dancer trying to get people up as their food was being dished up! Wine rubbish and expensive Save your money and go somewhere worth eating

Enjoyed a great dinner by sharing seafood Saganaki, Greek salad, trio of dips (hummus, tapenade, eggplant dip) and kalamari. Service and food were excellent. Tuesday night is Greek night which means a belly dancer comes in to entertain and that was quite enjoyable.
