I went there this evening with the better half.
It had been a few years since I was there.

Looking for a late night main course at about 10:00 PM we both ordered Chicken Souvlaki as our main.

We started off with Skordalia (cold , very garlicy mashed spuds) as an appetizer.
The pita that was served with it, was toasted and warm.

I ordered a Stella on draught and the Mrs. , a glass of white wine.

The meal arrived in good time and the presentation was nice.
I am sorry to say that while the service was decent, the food was very substandard.

The Greek salad was very nice. One of the best I have had on "The Danforth' to be honest.

The Chicken Souvlaki was overcooked.
It was dry to be honest.
I was happy that there was ample Tsatziki with the meal as it made it more pallatable in dipping the chicken in it before I ate it.
The standard roasted potato was also overcooked. It was dry. Thanks for the extra Tsatziki to help "wash it down"
The portions were however, more than the average.
I hope that this was a "one off" for this venerable establishment on "The Danforth"

Skordalia, 2 Chicken Souvlaki. 2 Stella Artois Draught, 2 White Wines, came to about $69.00, plus tip.

I hope we caught them on a downer of a night, this was not what I have come to expect for one of Greektown's mainstays.
