“Authentic Greek Food & Welcoming Staff”

Visited early evening so I think my husband and I were the first customers of the evening. Nicos was the manager very friendly knew exactly how to please his clientele nothing was too much trouble. Filled up with more customers during our time there. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. Food was of excellent quality. They were promoting a Greek Evening (music and dancing) that would be taking place the night after so was very sorry we missed out on that! Fully recommend this restaurant both for food, value for money and staff. We wish them well for the future and hope to sample the menu next time we are in London and staying in the area.

“Great service and selections”

The food here is authentic and of very high quality. Ate here twice, including once shortly before closing time, but was treated with same great kitchen offerings and attentive service. They value their customers, and it shows. Just off a busy street so it’s quieter and more charming than a storefront restaurant. Not hard to find if you look.

“Greece transported to Central London!”

My first visit there. I had noticed it tucked away quietly in Bayswater and had thought that I must visit. Given its hidden location, I wondered what it would be like. Prepare to be surprised and delighted. A little gem as many others have referred to it and the reason so many return.
I was greeted enthusiastically by the manager and received attentive service throughout from all the staff. The food choice is very typically and authentically Greek. The atmosphere was wonderful with a very mixed and international clientele and I really did think I had been transported back to a Greek island. Whilst there are very many “modern” Greek restaurants around that are quite clinical in their appearance and presentation, I really loved the rustic charm and friendliness of this place.
The drinks menu could probably do with an overhaul, but I really could not fault the quality and presentation of the food.
The restaurant does appear to have a few detractors, but I am happy to say that I disagree with them. Perhaps they were having a bad day when writing their reviews! Full marks to all concerned at Kalamaras! I shall be back to sample more of the authentic cuisine on offer very soon.
