My friend and I visited this restaurant whilst on holiday. Excellent food and service, prices to suit all from snacks to something a little special. We have been twice and will use this restaurant for the rest of our holiday it's that good.

Have been twice now. Once for lunch had the mix plates for 2 and as advised by waiter there was enough. Returned for dinner one evening the mix grill was lovely and the fish was very fresh and well cooked. Very nice homemade Greek cooking. We shall be back.

In my opinion it is one of the best restaurants in Bangkok. It is situated not far from beach and it has fast and friendly personnel. I like the variety of dishes on the menu and quite low prices.

We ate here twice and have no complaints whatsoever. Avra is very competitively priced and do some lovely traditional dishes. It's very popular with locals, which is why we stopped in the first time. Our second visit I'd been feeling a bit poorly, and it was no trouble at all to have the traditional Cretan chicken and lemon soup as... More

It was the same excellent restaurant as always which meant we had to go EVERY night. And why not? What more could you ask for? Superb food and menu choice - great prices and extremely good hosts. Lovely family run taverna with a welcoming atmosphere. Love it, love it, love it!
