Food for thought: Tazikis is Greek to everyone

If your mouth is watering for tender strips of roasted lamb, mixed with grilled onions and roasted red peppers then Taziki&8217;s Greek Fare at The Village at Lee Branch is the place to go.

This Greek inspired restaurant, tucked away between boutiques, offers a fresh menu at reasonable prices.


This restaurant provides delicious options in a laid-back and relaxing setting.

You can sit at high-top tables lining the front windows or at more intimate booths. There are also a few tables for larger groups.

When you&8217;ve spent a day of shopping at the Village at Lee Branch it would also make for a nice lunch spot with friends.


Every day a special dish greets you as you enter Taziki&8217;s.

On Wednesdays enjoy a Spanakopita roll-up stuffed with grilled chicken, fresh spinach and feta cheese or on a Friday night out the grilled chicken penne pasta, drizzled with a homemade balsamic vinaigrette, might make for a perfect date dish.

If you are really hungry try one of the various Greek Feasts. These meals come with a traditional Greek salad and your choice of basmati rice or roasted potatoes and pita bread on the side.

For $1.50 extra you can also enjoy some fresh asparagus for the perfect side dish.

The highlight of the meal is the meat, which you choose from grilled chicken, sliced roasted leg of lamb, grilled Tiger shrimp or marinated roasted pork loin.

Most importantly don&8217;t forget the desert. A piece of Baklava tops off any Greek meal just perfectly.


When you walk into the restaurant, expect to order at the counter and make your own drinks.

It&8217;s not fast food but its not sit down service either.

Just know the food is worth the extra effort on your part.
