    Souvs are so small. Would never survive in Aus. Fries are very good though.

    Best ever chicken souvlaki! I ordered the SGR Souvlaki pita which has delicious spicy feta in it 😍😍
  • Damian B.
    Delicious Greek at a reasonable price and welcoming decor. Get a pita and split an order of fries with friends. Wash it down w a Greek beer or wine.
  • Irene M.
    Better than most Greek restaurants... in Greece!
  • Valentin G.
    The service was great but food is really disappointing... over-salted Taramosalata, cold Moussaka, dried meatballs. I might give a try to their other location.

    Souvlaki GR has made a name for themselves with their expertly chargrilled meat cubes and homemade pita bread. Don't miss the bifteki and the Greek fries topped with feta and oregano. Read more

    At this cafe laid out like a tiny Greek village, the off-price wine list alone is worth a visit, and the bread dips are a great deal. Three hefty scoops come with a ton of grilled pita triangles. Read more

  • Miguel Andrés Y.
    The souvlaki is amazing
  • Alexandros P.
    Best thing here, besides the good and proper Greek food like souvlaki, tzatziki and zucchini balls, is the fact that the place is decorated to look like a small street alley in a Cyclades' island.

    Tsaziki is off the chain. Gyros are on the smaller end, but for me it was perfectly portioned.

    Cute sit down or to go - small but super tasty souvlaki, so get two if you're really hungry. You'll probably want it anyways by the time it takes them to bring you your food.

    Make sure to try to Greek fries! The meat plater for two is a great way to try a little of all the meats! The chicken and pork were my favorite though.

    Get the SGR souvlaki. It doesn't matter whether you get the chicken or pork, both are equally delicious.

    The Pita Souvlaki is nothing short of excellent. Combine it with an appetizer for a perfect meal.

    One of the most unique places I've been to. It had a club vibe going but the atmosphere sort of gets to you after a bit. Get the pita wraps. And the tzatziki is glorious.

    Three hefty scoops for $15 (out of a choice of seven). kebabs in a pita sandwich, which comes stuffed with a brochette of your choice, tomato, purple onions, tzatziki, and french fries.

    Get your Greek on! Stuff yourself with chicken and pork skewers and souvlakis. And the lamb chops, tender and done well. Don't ask for ketchup with your fries.

    You'll feel like you're in Greece once you step inside. The menu is mostly meats - I recommend the chicken and pork skewers. The pita they serve with any of the skewers is so good!

    Great atmosphere, just like Athens. Perfect hummus and souvlaki! Be careful with tzatziki it has a ton of garlic.

    I like this jurnt. It's a cool vibe, in that you might see some smokin' Mediterranean babes that rip cigs and eat feta cause they DGAF. Don't ask for ketchup, you'll look dumb.
