Solid Greek spot just off Yonge, on Fairlawn, in North Toronto.

Been twice now and I really like it. Glad I finally checked them out.

Dynamic? No. Groundbreaking? No. But it's real good, solid, simply done but very nice Greek food. The calamari is some of the best I've had in the city. Rice and potatoes are utterly delicious. Good pita, interesting and quite good tzatziki. Very tasty lamb souvlaki.

Burgers look great. Will have to try next time. They looked hella good grilling.

Gyros is box standard supplied. Don't bother with it unless in the mood for that sort of thing. Otherwise a really good neighbourhood option with a few tables outside to enjoy the weather on a sunny day.

Nice owners (who are Spartan - not that it matters I guess) really seem to care about making good, simple food with care. They are the second generation owners. Apparently the first owner wasn’t much to talk about but these guys seem to be making a go of it despite that legacy. I wish them luck!

Check it out if in the area.
