Amazing food.
Worst service i've ever received from a restraunt in a long time.
Everytime we need a waiter we literally had to get up from our seat and find someone.
And when we did have a waiter come over they kept apologising for never come over.
Its not very hard.
We didn't get given menus or offered drinks or anything!
Terrible terrible service for such an amazing restaurant with amazing food.

We had the 8 dish sharing menu. Everything that came out was incredible and you definitely got your money's worth. We were rolling out the door. Definitely recommend.

Had the 2 share menu as we didnt know what to order. The details wernt written in the menu. The tapas food was a fun fresh tasty start unfortunately then we were let down when an unexpected chicken suvlaki came out loaded inside with frys . Also a plate of chips. The rest of the tapas order was great. Just wernt expecting the fry factor.

Got in earlier than had booked and was seated immediately. Staff were friendly. Got a beef souvlaki that was burnt to a crisp, didn't complain as I thought it was the style of cooking.

Very different, this is the second time we go there and I consolidated my first experience as there is so much into each dish.
I recommend Gazi Greek for an experience if you like Tappas with a diference.
Great to go there with a nice group (we were 9) so that you have a lot to taste!
Very well managed. So busy but still comfortable, still received the service with a smile and those pots on the ceiling seem to muffle all that noise...we could still hear one another talk.
Well done Gazi Greek!

We had been to Gazi before and had a great experience. This time, not so much. The food was average and were small servings (even for large sharing plates). Given the menu had changed, the options weren't so diverse, no lamb mains? At a Greek restaurant? Also, the waitress was less than happy to serve us and assist in menu choices. It felt like we were almost annoying her. The staff make or break your experience, a smile goes a long way.

Gazi did not disappoint. We had a lovely window table so the view was great. The chips were amazing and the other dishes were really tasty too. As a vegetarian there was plenty to choose from.

Our table was a table for 2. The tables were so close together I could barely fit between them. We heard every word of the conversation at the table next to us, which was a little uncomfortable. The lady was also very loud to the point we couldn't hear each other speaking. Other than that, brilliant food & service as usual.

Food was very bland and average. The steak was dry and had no sauce. The fish was cooked well but also came with no sauce and was very bland so it was very hard to eat.

Advised at booking I was a coeliac. Told the waiter, who gave me their gluten free options. Ordered the gluten free options, specifying gluten free. Yet the food delivered by the kitchen staff was not gluten free. It was supposed to be dip and gluten free bread. I called the waiter back to check, as the bread did not look like GF bread, and she whisked it away. I received the gluten free bread with my meal. Double check before eating any bread if you are a coeliac as the message can be lost between the waiter and the kitchen.

The food, service and interior was fantastic. What didn't work was the acoustics. I couldn't hear anyone speak. Don't go if you're hoping to have a conversation without shouting.

8 Course Lunch

As always Gazi delivered on the food front!! Everything was delicious cooked to perfection and just down right tasty. The only disspointment was being served a rather boring vanilla soft serve for dessert . When they have Loukoumades and other amazing desserts on the menu it was disspointing to receive a 'McDonalds' soft serve for dessert. Service was faultless and the value is great. Such a shame to end an otherwise excellent experience with the dessert we were given.

Nice food but not as good as a previous visit. Felt a bit let down on the overall experience but my expectations may have been too high. As a group of 5 we were seated at a 4 seat table with a chair added to the end so was a bit cramped and dark in the back corner, not the atmosphere I was hoping for. I was taking my family as a treat and had talked it up form my previous experience, we left without dessert straight after eating as my family did not enjoy. Food was yummy though although the chips with feta and rosemary were over oily like they had sat at the bottom of the fryer basket too long, not enjoyable at all.

I took my mum to GAZZI as a surprise!
The service was amazing as I was able to trust the staff with leaving the balloons, flowers and gifts during the day, so for when my mum came for dinner, she would see everything set up on the table ! they were able to help me with everything I asked and made my mum and I feel very comfortable. The environment had such good vibes where I could see my mum was just glowing with happiness. The food tasted immaculate ! Mum and I were very impressed ! The birthday cake was just to die for ! Overall, the service and food was amazing and we will highly recommend this to our family and friends! Can’t wait to come back.
