Summary

“Buzzing with positive energy, seven days a week” – this “phenomenal” Primrose Hill mega-taverna remains “extraordinarily busy” and is “like home, only better” for its huge north London fanclub. Even many fans recognise that “the menu is tired and needs a complete refresh”… but it’s been like that for as long as anyone can remember!

Summary

“What do they put in the water?” to drive the “terrific” buzz at this “always packed” Primrose Hill mega-taverna; “obliging” long-serving staff (“you feel like they know you”) are key to its magic, but less so the Greek fodder – “I’ve complained about the boring, unchanging food since about 1975, but keep on going back!”

Summary

“Always packed, even on Mondays”, this “unchanging” Primrose Hill mega-taverna is a north London “phenomenon”; doubtless its straightforward old-favourite dishes “could be improved”, but staff are “unflappable” and the atmosphere is “always cheerful”.

Summary

“Amazingly reliable through the decades”, this “unique” Primrose Hill mega-taverna is still “always packed to the gills”; it can’t be the food, so it must be that this is an “always-fun” destination that’s become a “home from home” for many locals.
