We visited Zorbas with extended family including persons who spend about three months per year in Greece.

The interior feels genuine. We were kindly met and the service was nice.

We shared two two-person mixed starter plates for five which was just about right, not too much. A nice variety of greek starters.

The main courses (Greek salad, souvlaki, moussaka and of course lamb chops) were all delicious, especially the lamb. Some of us had even the baklava for dessert. A nice small portion. And good Greek coffee.

This must be one of the top places in Helsinki to have a remider of the food and and feeling of a Greek quality tavern.

From the moment I walked in I was impressed with the service and incredibly warm welcome. The waiter was very polite and helpful, providing a menu in English but still providing an explanation of the dishes.

The mixed grill was excellent - all the meats (ox, lamb, chicken, pork were perfectly cooked as were the vegetables and potatoes.

A very pleasant meal, served quickly and professionally. My only criticism is that the portion sizes were small for my taste, especially as the meal, like all restaurants here, was expensive.

But the service and food are so good, I will visit again.

Food is good, but the major is an extremely friendly and professional waiter serving you there. This is the best service I have seen last months.

Expensive for the size of portions.
Taste was ok, but no reason to come back. 3 prawns in main dish is not much.
Service was between good and bad.
Clean toilets anyway.
