Athens Kouzzina in Atlanta Review

Updated on September 8, 2010

Athens Kouzzina A Greek Kitchen

If you're in Atlanta and near the Discover Mills Mall, this is the place to go. Although, my meal wasn't as fantastic as others on the menu or the table, I am definitely willing to go to the restaurant again.

Athens Kouzzina has two locations, but this review is all about the Discover Mills Mall location. The Greek kitchen is next to the AMC theater, within the mall.

At first, when the place was suggested, my first though was, "I want to go to a restaurant not the mall cafe," as I didn't realize that the mall had an actual restaurant within it. When we walked into the restaurant, we were given the option to sit inside or outside on the veranda, which wasn't outside at all but actually within the mall. We sat there, so that we could watch the people walking throughout the mall (even though the mall was closing).

The waiter was great at explaining the menu and helping us decide what we wanted to eat. He made great suggestions that the others opted to choose, but I had to be stubborn and order old-faithful. The service was nothing to complain about and better than most. 

The food... It was good too...

The Food

The menu contains appetizers, soups, salads, dips, sandwiches, wraps, omelets, pastas, seafood, pizza, desserts, and various specialties. When first looking at the menu, it may be hard to decide what you want especially if you're not used to Greek foods or if you've never been to the restaurant before.

I've had Italian food many, many times before, and I'll say Greek is similar, unless it was what I ordered.

We started the meal with appetizers. Cheap was good considering we weren't sure what the food was going to be like. We ordered one Tyropita ($3.75), which is phyllo dough filled with cheeses and fresh dill; you get two small biscuits, so to speak, which were wonderful. My only complaint was that you only get two. I was hoping for a basket or a larger biscuit. We also ordered the Htipita and pita bread dip ($3.95), which is feta cheese, roasted red peppers, hot peppers, and olive oil. In a way, it tasted like melted piminto cheese.

I wasn't sure where to start with the menu, so I went with old faithful, which was cheese ravioli, ($9.95) which read from the menu as handmade ravioli noodles with Romano, Parmesian, Ricota, and Mozzerella cheeses, topped with fresh tomatoes, mushrooms, garlic, spinach, and basil. I was expecting something different and truly handmade, but what I got was the exact same ravioli as Olive Garden with a little fancier sauce. It wasn't bad by any means, but it wasn't anything special or different. 

My boyfriend decided to get the special, which was stuffed fillet with crab. He wanted something different and he got it. He loved the meal, as well as the Greek salad that came with it. He had never had a Greek salad and was pleasantly surprised (he's actually asked for the salad at other restaurants, but hasn't been able to find one where we've gone). Anyway, as for the meal itself, it was price, but it was the special, so we couldn't ask for anything less. 

Another meal that was ordered at the table is the meal that I will probably order next time (yes, I'm willing to go again). The penne me kota ($12.95) consisted of penne noodles with artichoke hearts, roasted red peppers, kalamata olives, fresh garlic, capers, fresh tomatoes, and basil. The pasta and vegetables were topped with feta cheese pesti and olive oil. The olive oil brought all of the flavors of the vegetables together and made the pasta great.
