The stall was busy but the staff were friendly and efficient. We each had a single portion of lamb souvlaki. There was Plenty of lean well cooked lamb to accompany the salad in the wrap. Delicious and good value for money.

Amazing food and a nice clean restaurant. Staff super friendly and helpful. Use to support these guys when they had the corner shop on Hereford street and the quality of the meals are still top rate

Parking was difficult but the food was great. Tasted great and was a great portion. I particularly liked the free individuslised gesture you get with each order. I got a sexy wink!

As long as I can remember I've been a Costas Souvlaki loyalist. Since the quake and their move out of town from a takeaway to a restaurant setting has made one of my fav comfort foods less accessible. I'd never had a souvlaki from Dimitri...More
