Confirming the other reviews, the grape leaves, juicy and charcoal-grilled chicken "ribs" and fried zucchini are terrific. Dolmades are stuffed with seasoned ground beef, rice and a bit of red pepper, with a lemon sauce, as commonly found in the USA but rarely in Greece. Lemon sauce is bright and the dish is more flavorable than I'm accustomed to with this preparation. Order the chicken ribs and substitute fried zucchini for the potatoes that normally accompany them. Order Greek coffee and "donuts" to end.
Between the English-language menus, generous portions and Greek-American-style dolmades, I wouldn't be surprised if the owner had spent some time in the USA. If so, his taverna beats every Greek restaurant I've visited back home, hands down (for the same or less money).

This thirty years old tavern is a must try.

Not far away from kifissias avenue in the area of halandri, Kissos offers nice dishes among which i have to mention the beetroot with garlic and their yummy meats especially the chicken.

It has quality food and I used to be a regular until I went one night and people on 2 big tables were smoking non stop. I politely asked the lady who served us to tell them but I don't think she did and I stopped going there. I went back a month ago with friends and this time was fine. No one was smoking inside! What a relief! I hope it was not a coincidence and they will keep this up as they have done with their quality food over the years. Try the lamb chops, the home made bread, the fried courgettes and the juicy chicken chops. I will be back.

If you are in the area and looking for a typical greek taverna it's definitely worth a visit . Everything is on charcoal and in the summer they have s nice place to sit outside. Prices are normal, service is ok don't expect to be served fast if it's full as there is only one or two waiters
