Love this place....I went with a group of my friends and we all loved the food my favorite is the pasticio cooked to perfection. Their new patio is nice and quit. I would highly recommend this place. Our server Laura was great! Can't wait to go back!
GOD AWFUL AVOID AT ALL COSTS – UTTER CRAP!
OVERPRICED, FOUL FOOD.
Ordered the Shwarma and Hummus Plate and was served a few spoonfuls of bland hummus beneath a meager pile of what looked to be grease and dogfood. Cost me 14.95$ and wasnt worth a cent. The "tender filet mignon slices" were chewy and stale; and im not exaggerating when i say a soup cup worth of grease accompanied this pour excuse for Shwarma.
I WILL NEVER NEVER EVER RETURN!! >:(
Lastly, this food was a disgrace to Greek cuisine. The people behind this establishment must be heartless and should be ASHAMED.
Not impressed – e service was friendly if a little slow at times. But the food just didn't cut it. I am Greek so I know a thing or two about authentic Greek food.
The major offenses were thin runny tzatziki, watery coffee, the galaktobouriko was just not right (the custard didn't hold together the way it should) and the sweet red wine I ordered wasn't sweet!
Won't be going back. So shocked that many consider this the best Greek in town.
good greek – Has good Greek but not like I had in Europe. I wish I could find real gyro with real lamb meat stacked on spit and slow cooked all day vs the processed meat everyone uses in US. I have to settle until I find one but I hear King Greek is supposed to be best.
best gyro salad – I love the happy greek!!!!!!!
Best humus in columbus. Love the gyro salad and the salmon is OUT of this world!!!!
Always good service.
Great greek beers.
Bad Customer Service, Bland Gyro?s, But Great Atmosphere. – This time getting lunch from them was not so good. The meat in the gyro was very bland and the sauce on the gyro you could hardly see the pita was chewy. I called to let them know and the person that answered the phone said that is how they get the meat from the manufacture. She did not seem at all interested in my complaint and did nothing about it. We had ordered 3 meals and they all were not good. I am not a complainer but if you own or run a business you should be concerned with the customer?s comments and try to make them happy. If I was eating in the restaurant I would have sent it back to the kitchen but importunely I had it brought back to my place of employment. It will be a long time that I will consider ordering there again mainly because of the customer service (the lack of).
Don't go for lunch – I've been to the Happy Greek several times, and while overall there service is a bit slow, I have never minded because the food is good. However, after a recent experiance I will not be going back.
I went to lunch with a friend and we arrived before most of the lunch crowd. We ordered our food (mine was a salad) by 12:00 if not a few minutes before. By 12:40, we still did not have our food. Our waitress said the kitchen was backed up- yes, that's true, but we ordered before the crowd! Plus, 40 minutes for a salad is WAY too long.
We ended up leaving, never receiving our lunches, because we only have an hour for lunch and had no more time to wait.
I would not recommend going there for lunch- EVER!
Very vegetarian friendly – There are so many options for vegetarians on this menu. If you appreciate great culinary food, but are a vegetarian - this is the place for you! They have an entire selection just for vegetarians. The pastichio is to die for - so is the combo plate. The melitzano salata will be better than sex! I can't' say enough about this food. Its so nice to finally have options as a vegetarian other than "pasta"! I haven't even touched on the atmosphere! FANTASTIC. you'll want to go to greece!
Romantic yet kid friendly – I loved this restaurant. The selections are numerous and the specials are extremely creative. The price is unbelieveably affordable and I guarantee you won't leave hungry. I love the interior, the service and servers are wonderful, and the food is awesome! Everyone should try this restaurant at least once. Oh yea, I've had the fried calamari several times and each time it is perfect. That alone is worth it to me.
Superb – This is the best greek restaurant in the city. Make sure you get the greek dip sampler platter. The Hummus is out of this world
