Greek in Flushing.

Gastronomos Aug 3, 2013 08:36 AM

I am looking for a casual and moderately priced Greek restaurant for a group of 8 in Flushing.

I was last at Gyro Corner a few months ago and haven't visited Mythos or Kati Alo in years.

I don't want a bouzouki place, just a restaurant that serves Greek food.

Not against gyros, but no place that serves only grilled fish either.

Thanks for your help :-)

    Mediterranean Grill on Willets Point Blvd (technically Whitestone) is our go to place for a couple of years now. Fresh food, great value, nice people. Folks also like Avli in Bayside.

      I suggest going to Astoria for good Greek Food. Either Telly's Taverna or Kyclades

            I ask because I've been twice, and nothing I ordered was good, so I'm very leery of the place. Especially since on one visit I ordered a recommended special of baby shark and it was so overcooked it became tough and dry. Still trying to evaluate if it's just bad luck considering how popular the place is.

        Go east on Norhern Blvd, Right on 31st Street, left on Astoria Blvd & 28th street for BZ Grill for the most fabulous gyro you will ever have.

          thanks. I tried BZ grill a few years ago and was disappointed. I tried it again and found the house made Gyro they sell worth the trip. If only they had traditional Gyro seasoning I would also recommend it to others.
