We (couple + toddler) were here for a late sat lunch (~2pm)... ordered one afternoon tea, a 4oz smoked black cod (entree) and a clam chowder (from kids menu) for my son. First, the chowder is watery (kids menu version perhaps!)... Ok then... afternoon tea is disappointing! The tea (earl grey) was given without any cream or sugar (Do we have to ask for it?!), tea is not even might-leaf level (probably like starbucks). NOTHING special enough to mention about the sandwich, scone is good but no way it should come with a tiny can of jam! devon cream is also thick and too sweet! Dessert so-so as well. Not worth it! On the entree, the black cod is very good! We, however discover there's a tiny cooked worm on the spinach lettuce. As we show that to the waiter, he didnt seem too apologizing. Instead, we were given 2 tiny truffle, probably thinking this will not be posted. 2 months ago at Cactus, they take care of the dish when the same thing happen to a NY steak we had + dessert/drink offered. Anyway... enough said about the Fish House and it has definitely been degraded compared to the last time we were here (1+ yr ago).

We (couple and toddler) dine here recently on a friday evening. As we arrive, the parking lot is full but as we enter the restaurant, there are more servers than customers inside. After we settled and were given the menus, we were ready for ordering for 10min before our server comes to take the order. Without apologizing, she qiuckly took the order and walked away. My wife didn't get her water until the food come! The wait was so long for the food and there's no pita offered while we wait (the pita comes with the food together). I had a roast lamb and my wife had a mousaka. It was the fattest roast lamb I ever have in any Greek restaurant and it only tasted so-so. I trimmed out the fat which covered half an appe dish. The mousaka that my wife had was tastly but salty. The potato, rice and veges are decent as any other Greek rest. At the end with the leftover, the server even forgot to pack my leftover roast lamb. Overall, mediocre food, sub-par service, higher price to value. I will definitely pick Minoas any day over this...
