40 Greek Wood Green

SquareMeal Review of Vrisaki

Head into the backstreets of Wood Green, squeeze through a narrow kebab takeaway entrance & you emerge into the windowless dining room of this no-nonsense Greek-Cypriot taverna. Though you can order à la carte, most evening diners skip lunch in preparation for the enormous ‘special Greek mezdes à la Vrisaki’, which for £36 delivers enough dishes to cover your white paper tablecloth & necessitate some double-decker balancing. Cold mezze (hoummos, taramasalata, tabouleh) is accompanied by warm pitta & followed by hot dishes (grilled halloumi, calamari), seafood (prawns, sea bass) & meat (spicy sausage, chicken). There’s crispy, sticky baklava for afters. Service can be gruff, especially at busy times, but boisterous groups of faithful regulars (knocking back the ouzo & inexpensive wines from the largely Greek list) are having too much fun to let this bother them.

The food is very good with a wide range of dishes to suit all tastes and I have been to the restaurant for a number of occasions and have always been happy with the food that has been served. The service however is appalling, with mainly older stroppy Greek men who are less then helpful and most unfriendly. I think they would really benefit from some customer service training!

A terrible experience at Vrisaki. An astonishingly aloof greeting from the many Greek male staff on a quiet and fairly empty Thursday evening. As a group of four, we ordered a mezes for two and one main dish, but we were commanded to order a fourth dish by our incredibly dismissive waiter, who also refused to tell us what was included in the mezes. We were encouraged by the barman to take this minimum order policy up with the boss, as he had witnessed the way we were spoken to. To our horror, the owner had an equally disgusting attitude – to the point of aggression. We left in a state of shock and disbelief (I have never been treated so appallingly at any restaurant in my life). These rude and arrogant owners and their morose staff deserve no business at all.
