I think it really depends on what you order. The dish I chose was sold out. The lady next to me got the last one and I could hear her mmming and ahhing about it! But mine was pretty ordinary egg noodles with seafood. The two big prawns and the three mussels were yummy and the octopus pretty good but the sauce was pathetic, tasted like watered down tomatoe sauce out of a bottle and the egg noodles were very badly cooked. some of them were tough and chewy and others falling apart from overcooking. No wonder the waiter was trying to get me to have the Moussaka. Still my boyfriends dish was very yummy. I am sure if you order the house specials and typically greek food it would be fine. We started with a trio of dips...the usual eggplant, taramosalata and tatziki. These were exceptional. So if you want Greek give it a go but if you want really good greek head into the city to that place downstairs....if only I could remember what it was called....!

We went to the restaurant on an Ouffer voucher. Not sure if the rude, abrupt and unwelcoming treatment by the owner was due to dining on a voucher or if its like that always. We were not asked if we wanted more drinks or if the food was OK. We waited for the food to be BBQ'd and all we could hear was the owner/cook making disparaging remarks to his staff across the restaurant, even calling into question their mental abilities. He was rude and bullying to his staff in front of all dining clients. The food was not presented appealingly, rather all food placed on top of each other with rice and cabbage underneath. It was mostly made up of BBQ calamari. If this is the usual manner food is served and this is a reflection of the level of service you can expect, it is appalling!!! This could have been an opportunity for the owner/cook to showcase his restaurant to new clients, for return business. He has blown it, it was a terrible experience all round. Won't be back and would not recommend anyone go and waste their money on the experience. Go to Maccas instead, at least you get what you pay for!!

dining upstairs and downstairs so if you haven't booked, if downstairs looks full, don't be put off. The 2 of us ate on a very busy Saturday night and the service was prompt and food delivered in good time. Both seafood and meat dishes cooked just as expected from a traditional greek restaurant, was excellent value. Wine list by glass limited but still enough choice to satisfy. Trip advisor address in incorrect, Santorinis is at 227 Oxford St, only a few doors further along strip.

We had some chicken kebab before going out for drinks. The food was very good and the owner was extremely nice. He brought us some free ouzo at the end of our meal and told us to come back before we left. He was very excited that we were from Miami. The prices were kind of high but the food and atmosphere were well worth it.

Great little place, the moussaka is amazing, don't sit at the outside tables, main Oxford Street road can be noisy and windy.
