The service here is impeccable. Throughout the meal, they were very attentive - water jug was replaced when it was empty without us asking, we didn’t have a hard time getting the attention of the servers, they even gave us dessert plates & cutlery and let us take out our own cakes. They even gave us complimentary dessert.

This is a Greek dessert of semolina custard baked in filo. Was pretty sweet, but not as sweet as baklava. The custard wasn’t very eggy tasting, and was quite pleasant. The phyllo sheet at the top was crisp. It’s a pretty interesting dessert, worth a try!

This was good too! The eggplant, potatoes and bechamel sauce came together nicely and was very tasty. They didn’t heavily season it, the natural flavours of the eggplant and potatoes were allowed to come through.

Can’t help but compare this to Blu Kouzina’s version, which had a strange aftertaste. Safe to say, I definitely enjoyed Bakalaki‘s rendition much more.

I usually rly dislike lamb because of the gamey taste, but this plate of grilled marinated lamb chops really changed my mind. It was juicy, tender, nicely seasoned (with oregano and rosemary) and devoid of any gamey taste - safe to say, I was really impressed! You could really see the juices leaking out. Very easy to eat, no chewy toughness. Oh and to top it off, the roasted potatoes were done very well too. Soft but not mushy and with their skins on, they were a delight to have.

They shave off grilled meat from a big skewer (that’s what the guy mentioned), so you get some crisp bits. Not bad, but not mindblowing - it’s like a slightly better quality stuffd/guzman. It’s flavourful (from the herbs/spices) but not salty. Comes with tzatziki (yogurt and cucumbers, v yummy!!), raw tomato & onion, pita bread, and fries. Fries weren’t really salted nor crisp, but it wasn’t soggy so it was decent enough.

Pita was really nice! We added 2 more sets after. It was crisp with a slight char, one of the nicer pitas I’ve had thus far (beats moosehead’s, blu kouzina’s).

Taramosalata is a white cod roe spread - this was amazing, wasn’t fishy at all but you could still tell this was a fish-based spread. We loved this!

Mom liked the fava! It’s a beany spread, so it was more dry comparatively. It’s not heavily seasoned, so it’s great for lighter palates.

The third spread with the long name is a smoky eggplant spread, and it was indeed pretty smoky, but I don’t think we’ll have it again bc it just wasn’t to our preference.

This is a traditional Greek salad, with tomatoes, cucumber, green pepper, onion, Kalamata olives and a big block of feta cheese, plus EVOO. It may seem like you’re paying 20 bucks for just veg, but I think it was worth the price. The components were fresh - tomatoes juicy and sweet, cucumbers/green pepper crunchy, olives were sour (in a good way, reminded me of a giant bowl of olives I had in Portugal LOL). Feta wasn’t very sharp and didn’t have the ‘sheep smell’ so it was palatable and pretty yummy in fact.

This was refreshing, definitely get this if you’re intending to grab a salad here!

This was crisp and had some herbs sprinkled on it - this was a good vessel for the olive oil that was available on every table. The olive oil was of pretty good quality!

Fish was surpassingly good! It was tender, moist and the skin was crisp! Could have done without the pickled veg tho, it didn’t add much to the dish.

Roast pork was alright - nothing to shout about, but I liked the eggplant in this! The yogurt, pork & other components came together nicely. Also healthyish but tasty.

Falafel looked kinda dry, but it wasn’t and the flavour was not bad too! It’s slightly herby. This felt healthy (other than the fries) but was still tasty.

The pickled carrots were nice and sour, and the whole thing was tossed in olive oil. Decent!

Food here is generally for those with lighter palates, so it was just nice for my fam! The kale & pumpkin was simple but enjoyable - we liked the roasted pumpkin but it could have been thicker. There was a yogurt dressing which gave some creaminess, and I liked the addition of pomegranate! Cauliflower hummus & flatbread was decent but I’ve had better! My parents liked that it wasn’t heavily seasoned.
