Cuisina is in Tualatin – The Greek Cuisina downtown closed but there is still one in Tualatin. It has great Greek food and a cool atmosphere. I love the Calamari and the Gyros.
Had a great time – My girlfriend an I went to check it out on a friday evening. I ordered the lamb and she had a greek salad. We enjoyed it and wandered upstairs after dinner to check out the night club. The Good DJ and a big dancefloor lured us in and we had a blast.
Yum!!! reveiwer is a Liar – I heard on 1190 KEX on Friday that the city finally shut the place down, how could he have dined there on Sunday.
Yum!!! – Food was terrific! I've head bad things about this place, but each time I go is better than the last!
AWFUL, AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!! – This place is AWFUL. The food is terrible. It tasted old, overcooked, and made me sick. Not to mention paying way too much for food that I would not have given to my own dog!
I wish I could give this place a zero star rating because a one star rates them better than they deserve.
Save yourself time, money, and the likely chance of illness and go somewhere else!
GREEK THIEVES tried to cater our wedding & failed miserably. – What ever you do, do not let the Greek Cuisina cater your event. They will short you items that you have already paid for, treat you like garbage, and generally do a terrible job at what they call catering an event, beware!
We just hired "Greek Cuisina" to cater our formal wedding this past weekend, July 25th on Rex Hill. We spent nearly $3000 to feed 100 guests.
First off we had done the tasting and had everything chosen 6 months ago but when it came close to event time we couldn't reach the contact person and it took jumping through numerous hoops for days to get in touch with someone who could help us out. We finally were put in touch with the owner and learned that the catering planner had changed and that he would now take our order. So we are now starting over from ground zero with our entire order. (very fun when you have every thing else to worry about when your wedding is less than a month away, thanks again!)
So we make our order once again and guess what, it's about $1000 more for less food than than we were promised previously... and this guy is a real joy to talk with especially when he is yelling at you and hanging up on your call! Yes, this really happened!
So everything gets worked out and the big day comes around, it's 4:45 pm and the wedding starts in 15 minutes and guess who knocks on the door, the idiots from Greek Cuisina wanting a payment check before they can even start to set up. We had to hold the wedding so that this class act, overpriced catering service could get their stuff down to the event area and set up. How nice for our guests on a 95 degree afternoon to have to wait an extra half hour for them to set up.... later on in the evening they actually have the audacity to argue with my wife "the bride" about not busing the tables, the badly dressed owner swears up and down that they weren't supposed to bus the tables, when its right there on the printed contract "busing service for 100 people" Very frustrating....
To make a long frustrating story short, here is a list of things we got shorted on or are unhappy with. We are in the process of recouping what the charged and shorted us on, with legal action if necessary:
-there was no rice... we paid for 100+ people worth and its on the invoice..
-there should have been plenty enough flat bread for every person with some left over, "we ordered extra packs" the guests received 1small triangle piece of flat bread per salad (about enough to feed a 2 year old kid"
-there should have been plenty of hummus leftover, we ordered a gallon and each person only got a small, "very small" cup full, where is the rest of the paid for gallon... ?
-they shorted us on meat, (they were asking guests
if they could use the meat off of the appetizer kabobs to put onto flat bread for the gyros.) very odd, where did all that paid for meat go...?
-no vegetarian kabobs to be seen what so ever, they were on the invoice...?
-they showed up at 4:45, everything was suppose to be set up by 4, we had to hold the wedding for them to get there stuff to the catering area. (only 1 entrance path to the event space.)
-they argued about busing the tables and then did a poor job busing.. (my wife and then my brother ended up busing the head table which they had forgotten about)
-everyone in their group was to wear black pants and a white dress shirt, the old man (the owner) was actually wearing an old t-shirt and looked like a soup kitchen slob.
-they didn't bring there own boxes to put the few left overs there was in, so they asked for 1 gallon baggies, used a few and stole the rest of a brand new unopened box, this after we are supplying them.... go figure.
-they rudely ignored guests when comments were made about the poor busing service.
-used poor judgment on their part for only sending 3 people to cater an even of 100+ people.
Save your money and aggravation don't even think about using these Greek thieves.
Would never eat here again – There was a stale smell in this restaurant that should have alerted me to the experience we would have at Greek Cusina..the service was amateurish. I have had much better service in a diner and better gyros from a street cart. The food was embarassingly bad. My husband had intestinal problems that I can only attribute to the food we ate at this restaurant. I was probably saved as I only ate a couple of bites of my entree. There are better places to eat in Portland than here.
Bad under cooked food – I was just there on Sunday, I ordered lamb shamks, they hard as leather and tasteless, very expensive too. Won't be going back.
good entertainment, bad service and food – I like going here for dancing and the show is entertaining, but the food was not so good and the waitress was so bad she didn't get a tip from anyone in our party.
Great Food/Service – Walked in late on a whim. The service was great with freindly staff and the food was better. Will go back again.
