Lovely food and staff

I went here as a solo diner and felt really well-looked after. The staff were very accommodating and immediately gave me a vegan menu. The dishes were delicious too. Would highly recommend.

Pros: Vegan menu , Lovely staff

Very nice vegan options in the menu

They have a full vegan menu apart from the meat menu...
I love having pita bread with hummus for a starter and Brian for main course

Pros: A really nice full-vegan menu, Friendly staffs, hearty portion, Nice design, clean toilet, good music

Cons: Way too many alcohol drink options, Not many healthy beverage

Meat in my meal!

Unfortunately I found a large chunk of meat in my supposedly vegan meal! The staff were apologetic and reduced the bill but for a restaurant that offers a separate vegan menu (which you need to request) I'm afraid I find this mistake hard to accept. It rather ruined my evening out.

Pros: Separate vegan menu, Friendly staff

Cons: Found meat in my vegan meal

Ask for vegan menu

I like how they have a full vegan menu but you have to ask for it. Vegetarian moussaka could easily be made vegan by using plant milk. Similarly Greek salad could have plant based cheese. What they do serve though is lovely and tasty

Pros: Vegan menu available on request

Cons: No vegan moussaka

Great food and lovely staff

Really nice good with substantial portion sizes. Lovey staff and quick service. You need to ask for the vegan menu to see the options as they aren't marked on the full menu. Omni friend also really enjoyed their meal here.

Pros: Good vegan options, Reasonably priced, service

If you asked for the vegan menu you get way more options rather than trying to work out if something can be made vegan, loads of tasty choices really would recommend

Pros: Ask for vegan menu, Reasonable, Super tasty

Authentic Greek gyros

Tasty gyros with chargrilled peppers and hummus served with sweet potato fries. Very lively restaurant in the heart of Newcastle’s Bigg market. Separate vegan menu but limited choice and quite small for a main course. Vegan churros served for dessert, worth a try.

Lovely Greek restaurant

There was lots of choice in the separate vegan menu and the food was really good. I had dolmades to start, followed by vegan gyros and then apricot sponge with vegan ice cream. Highly recommended

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Great tasting food

Cons: None identified
