This authentic restaurant truly brings back my memories , from where I visited last year .When I visited Greece I couldn’t try their authentic non-veg greek food, since we prefer halal food and it was kind of difficult for us to find a eatery which provides halal food and hence we stick on to vegetarian dishes .
But now I don’t regret , since I could have the authentic greek food , right here in Dubai,any time I want , from the very own family owned eatery named Grecian grill
The ambiance and interior decor of Grecian Grill will not transport you to your dreamy and filmy kind of turquoise blue islands , but rather takes you to the ancient Greece with their rustic look and bright textured painted walls and gold framed pictures of places in Greece. The entry needs a special mention – a cute walkway with inviting phrases on the side walls lead you to the restaurant. The outdoor seating area is equally beautiful and well shaded against the sun.
The moment you enter you feel like a family member being welcomed home. The owners itself take personal care of you while the rest of the staff do an excellent job by being attentive, friendly and helpful. Grecian Grill’s service was top notch, one attender was fully available for our table throughout the time we spent there .They were not at all in a hurry to sent us home. They even explained us the way they select Fresh and hand-selected ingredients creating a style that is pure, light and healthy
The menu is unquestionably Greek. We started with some of their cold starters which looked a bit similar to Arabic ones, but are quite different. One of these was the Tirokafteri which is a blend of feta cheese, yoghurt, and chili peppers. Even if you aren’t a fan of this rather tangy cheese, trust me you’ll change your mind once u do ! It is immensely fresh with some fragrant herbs sprinkled over.
Fava, Zucchini sticks with yoghurt sauce and the Baked Feta Cheese are other popular dishes among the starters. As obvious as it may seem, Greek salad stands out from the salad section, like eggplant salad , Grecian hammoos and the Dakos salad while the stars from the mains are the Grecian Grill’s Garlic Bread ,which was kind of Pizza , topped with fresh cheese is a bite of heaven, period
We were served with their special Grill Platter which consists of five kind of meat in different type of marination with 18 herbs and spices. The lamb chops was so delectable that I just didn’t want to share it with my friends.
Souvlaki and Gyros (a highly mis-pronounced word I must say) are also available, eventhough we couldn’t try (keeping it for next time, since we were so full)
The chicken Souvlaki/skewers served with homemade pita and fries is a good choice for someone who isn’t familiar with the cuisine. Tzatziki is a yoghurt dip that is best paired with any grilled meat. You could order it separately or satisfy yourself with a smaller portion as a side for most dishes.
End you meal with Galaktomboureko ,an ample amount of mixed nuts is placed between layers of flaky filo pastry and smothered in Greek honey.
. The pricing is very reasonable considering the authenticity of every item that is served.
It still feels like I went on a short vacation to Greece !! I highly recommend it if you are looking to try some genuine Greek food in Dubai.
