Any Good Greek Restaurants Around?

Recommended Posts

I really enjoy Greek food and would love to hear any recommendations for places to eat in Bangkok. Not too pricey but I am willing to pay for quality.

there is "olive" at the emporium, the zaziki is ok, the souvlaki as well - but still far away from the original ;/

there was a quite good greek (athen´s?) a few years ago, wonder where he´s disappeared to...

Yes I agree...no Greek restaurants at all in Thailand ! Strange isn't it ?

The guy who will have the idea opening one in Pattaya or Bangkok will have a lot of succes ! And I sure will be one of his customers . :o:D

Really? No good greek restaurants at all? That's surprising for such a big city. There is such an abundance of everything else, why not Greek?

I remember I had a number in my phone of a Greek somewhere on Suk, I believe.

Sorry don't know the name but remember the food was good.

Here it is: 023927644

Not that strange. There is not one Ethiopian restaurant in Thailand either.

You might try these two links, register if you want, sit back and enjoy at home!

www.foodbyphone.com

www.ChefsXP.com

Both have Greek and mediterranean offerings, similar delivery times (or you could just use their sites to Google the restaurants of course!)

Enjoy!

The Orangery in Paragon has some "Greek" dishes that they label as Turkish. Dolmades, Zatziki, etc.. They used to have a passable Taramosalata, but now it's off the menu. :o

There are some good explanations.

1. Thais do not like Greek food. Took my wife to Greece for 2 weeks and she nearly died of starvation!!!!!!!!

2. Farangs visiting Thailand, would prefer to taste the local food.

3. Farangs living in Thailand are mostly looking for a good steak and chips or lamb chops..........

4. Not many Greeks in Thailand and the ones there are not interested to open restaurants......at the moment they are enjoying their retirement after they sold their restaurant in England or USA.

If i think of any more, I will let you know.

Costas has a point up to a point. Expats and even regular tourists flock to places that serve their home country food. What else can explain all the British restaurants in Pattaya. But there aren't that many Greeks here to provide a customer base here.

Well, yes but if you are an expat for any length of time then eating both Thai food and one's native food becomes quite boring.

Well, I will try the Lebanese restaurant then. Thanks everyone even if it seems fruitless!

There is a nice little gyro restaurant called GYRO right in Silom Soi 4, it is a small family style place run by a Greek woman who is a delight and is there each evening. The prices are very reasonable and the chicken gyro i had was quite tasty.
