In the 1950s, suvlaki shops opened up across Greece. Suvlaki is a meat skewer grilled over charcoal. It can be eaten on its own or in a pita. It's Greece's national street food.
We are a small group of old friends from Athens who share an obsession with good food. Food that is fresh, healthy, and responsibly sourced. Oh, and insanely tasty!
We also think Greek ‘suvlaki’ – which means ’little skewer’ or simply ’stick’ and is synonymous with street food in Greece, is the tastiest and healthiest way to eat on the go.
Which is why we decided to come together and bring this little wonder of Athens’ past to the heart of Soho.
Please note that we do not accept reservations or takeaway orders over the telephone.
We do provide catering for offices and private events. For more info please contact:
