We are Efthymios and Neofytos, two Londoners born and raised in Athens and Cyprus. We launched The Athenian at the end of 2014, as a small street food venture offering freshly made souvlaki prepared in the healthiest, most authentic way possible.
What is souvlaki?
Ask any Greek and they will be sure to tell you that souvlaki is our nation’s favourite food to eat on the go. A quick, healthier alternative to fast food, it consists of a pita wrap filled with delicious Greek ingredients. The name souvlaki comes from a medieval word, meaning ‘little skewer’, after the cooking method. At The Athenian you will find a variety of Souvlaki and Gyros options from grilled meats to vegetarian as well as our signature vegan Gyros too! We look forward to serving you!”
