AstoriaAstoria is probably the best-known Greek restaurant on the Danforth. And while the decor could use an update, the restaurant always offers solid takes on Greek classics. The secret to the great souvlaki here comes down to their blend of spices, large portions and fresh ingredients. A souvlaki dinner served with salad, rice and roast potatoes sets me back between $10 -$15 depending on what size you order.

great food, very shabby service--I ordered the grilled shrimp and greek salad and it was to die for. My date ordered chicken souvlaki on a pita and greek fries and he was extremely pleased too. However; to get a drink was harder than pulling teeth, much less a refill--he would've had a second Caesar if he could've gotten a hold of the waitstaff. We never found out who our server was...

This place is way too over priced for the awfully bland and tasteless food they serve. I paid $15 for one chicken skewer and some rice that tasted like nothing. I could have made a better meal at home. Definitely not going back there again.

Astoria? Are you kidding me!!! What about Mezes and Pantheon? Astoria is by far the worst on the D for food and service. What kind of picture is that anyways?

Went for dinner last Friday. The service can only be qualified as extremely rude and unattentive, and the food is overpriced. While my salmon was perfect and tasty, the $18 pricetag was ridiculous. The "greek" salad was some tasteless iceberg with unripe tomatoes and a teaspoon of feta.

Horrible. Do not go there.

Astoria is without a doubt the best souvlaki on the Danforth and in the city. Pantheon and Mezes are good, however cannot touch the souvlaki at Astoria. I'd recommend Pantheon and Mezes for other menu items, but if you want skewered Pork, chicken, lamb or beef, go to Astoria.

BTW the picture above is brutal.

The service is terrible. The old man waiters are so rude and unfriendly. They are so greedy they would'nt even give you a lemon wedge for your water without charging you. Love the food, hate the old grumpy waiters.

Ever since the indians bought this place I noticed a slight curry taste to the souvlaki and the rice. If they want to see their cuastomers leave and never come back...please don't f*** with the menu!

Astoria used to be a great place to eat. in the 80s it was known for good souvlaki and Rude waiters. Food quality has gone down a little but overall still not a bad place to take the family. Kayvia has better food than they do but the long time nostalgia of Astoria still rules.

Who wrote this? Obviously they haven't set foot in this place in the last decade. From 1975-2002 it was the best greek restaurant and the food was to die for. People lined up around the block. Now it's a pathetic shell of its former self. They're even charging for Tzakiki and the garlic bread that was free. The taste of food is worse than a mall food court. I can't understand how they were able to expand to 4 locations. How about making 1 location on the Danforth decent again. The people who own it now ruined a good thing and haven't a clue. Astoria in name only.

I used to love hitting the location in Mississauga at lunch when I worked there. Expected the same quality [if not better] from the original location. Was very disappointed. Meat (pork) was VERY tough and dry. All accoutrements (salad, rice, etc) were mediocre. Won't be returning until they advertise NEW MENU, NEW RECIPES or NEW MANAGEMENT.
