My partner and I decided to head to Grreektown yesterday and as we were walking there, I recalled The Friendly Greek from a few years ago. It was big, it was lively, it was "Greek." Great food, great atmosphere. I should have clued in when...More

This restaurant recently moved across the street to a smaller space, which makes sense, given that their old space was CAVERNOUS! If you are looking for relatively inexpensive, fast, basic Greek, that's what you will get here. Nothing spectacular, just decent basic stuff.

This rather large restaurant on Danforth Ave., in the heart of the Greek section of Toronto, is festive and the food is good and inexpensive. We were there during the World Cup and Greece was playing, so the street was particularly festive with people wearing...More
