Takis disappointed on consistency
Submitted Monday, August 28, 2017 - 6:18pm [Dine in]

This is an update of a third visit for consistency checking, and for a new meal of calamari.

Updating an earlier review here and on my private food blog (don't give the address to restaurants...but currently 5, 923 followers).

Initially, I had given them a great review. Really great. But I always suprise with another visit and check for consistency.

In the interest of hoping the feedback is helpful, and not unreasonable.

Very disappointed.

1. The grilled calamari which was highly recommended was such a small portion I really couldn't believe. Plus too salty. Maybe the latter is personal preference, but my husband found it very salty. Haven't tried the fried calamari but he won't go back.

2. THe lamb. I thought it was oddly oily (a huge pool of oil again, dripped outside of the bag and I still had a quarter inch of it sitting in the take-out container. And I weighed it...the bone and the fat were 65% of the meat. The only edible meat, which was delicious, was approximately 1/3 of the what I paid for! This was a seriously horrible piece of lamb.

Felt really bad and hope my initial review is not misleading complementary.

I don't know if I can try it again but we are definitely back to Stephos one more time to compare and I should definitely give Takis another chance.

One positive note, they were very generous in offering an ouzo while we waited for the takeout (which is always quite speedy...but they're not that busy so speed is not surprising).
