We visited as Greek as it Gets after a train ride to Cullinan. I had to try this popular restaurant out for myself. The staff are friendly but the owner would shout at them constantly. Maybe that is the Greek way? The food was average...More

As Greek as it gets says it all. A very tradional Greek resturant that serves good food but not a resturant I would go back to on a weekly basis. The service is average with limited SAB beverages. NO CASTLE LAGER?. Not a big selection...More

Had a great Sunday lunch. Be sure to do a reservation on a Sunday, but you will not regret your visit. We had the Meze and it was excellent. Really enjoyed lunch, kids played around and we just. "Kuiered"...

This is by far the best food you'll find in Cullinan. Make sure you make a reservation as its very popular on Sundays. We had steaks and meze platters and really can't fault the food. The seafood was fresh and prepared very well.
