Thanasis has been there for years. Lately the quality has worsen because they try to make cheaper food. Have to try once but bare in mind it's not like 5 years ago.

This is probably one of the most Famous restaurants in all of Athens. The location plays a huge part in that. It is most popular for the Souvlaki's. They have a walk-up window and are open until 4am. The food is not the best Athens has to offer but it is pretty darn good.

Not what I expected. The meat had a foul smell to it and was not fresh but frozen. I didn't know if it was chicken or pork. Looked horrible, low quality ingredients and tasted bad. Management made no apology when I told them this is not fresh and has a smell. They looked the other way. Besides the food being pricey and disgusting, the sanitary conditions of this place was staggering. Filthy and dirty. The waitors are a rip off and clever with each individual when seated. There a million other authentic souvlakia tavernas you can eat which offer quality meat in Athens. This place made no apology to me, I paid them, ate nothing and left. Avoid at all costs. Horrible establishment.

Questo paradiso dello street food è conosciuto per i suoi kebab con polpette di carne - per i più golosi consigliamo la versione inzuppata di yogurt!
