Having visited this resturaunt several times now. I have always had a pleasant time with my family. Birmingham is not Greece, so don't expect the impossible, but do expect a traditional Greek warm welcome from the host and authentic Greek food.

Can I have a refund for the meal I had with my boyfriend as a celebration please? We had a meal here 2 nights ago. Food was very expensive and taste of vinegar ( very sour ). The prawn cocktail was full of mayonnaise and we could not find any prawns apart from a few little creature ( rice seed size). It's very sour as the whole thing is mayonnaise. The chicken wings tastes just horrible and it is a ripped of price as there were only 2 little wings on the plate which is supposed to be nearly £5 worth. The grilled lamb were very tough although it has the burnt smell. The serving size is unbelievable as the lamb was supposed to be roughly £18 but it's only a few pieces of lamb with bones and chips and some salad. We ( my boyfriend and I )were really disappointed with this meal. The night after the meal on Sunday, we could not sleep as we felt sick because of the food. We still think the food is massively overcharged( about double the price). We used to have Greek food at a restaurant in London where we pay the same amount of money and we get 6times the serving size with delicious and succulent meat. That is why we like Greek food. But This restaurant just completely destroyed our good experience about Greek food. The atmosphere of the restaurant is very cold and unpleasant. Everything was old style and dark and unfriendly. The waiter was polite but the full experience of being ripped off is the main issue that we still feel that we were scammed and just really disappointed with this unfortunate event. Can we have a refund please? We were the only table in the whole empty restaurant on Sunday night???? REFUND PLEASE???? I am a student and I cannot be ripped of like this????

Description
Located on Bristol Street in Birmingham, Ulysees is a bright and vibrant Greek themed restaurant perfect for parties and fun meals with friends. The fantastically kitsch dining room - with colourful frescoed walls and plaster columns - is home to belly dancers, disco music and a live bouzouki band. Classic Greek dishes such as moussaka - layers of potatoes, courgettes and minced beef topped with bechamel; keftedes - meatballs in a rich tomato herb sauce; and chicken souvlaki marinated in olive oil and lemon juice; are served alongside the finest organic wines from the Pelopennese. Popular for birthdays, hen's nights, corporate events and office parties, Ulysees is a unique and entertaining venue for memorable nights out. FREE CAR PARKING
