Yanni's Greek Restaurant
Visit Yanni's website:

Read a review of Yanni's by a Japanese magazine, featuring Zaphara!

 Congratulations, Yannis restaurant was recognized in the category of "best family friendly restaurant" in Seattle by the voters of City Guides city's BEST, 2006 program.

"City's Best" Mediterranean restaurant 2007
Review highlights:
"The place is astoundingly incredible.
Their food is DELICIOUS and they have very nice employees. The building is interesting and cozy."

"Give the place a try, or a few dozen tries, you won't regret it."

"DINING OUT Fans of Greek dining spots rave about their faves." cover story by Nancy Leson, Seattle Times food writer. "Elsewhere in Greenwood, a cry goes up for Yannis. Many echo the sentiment of those who say the rotisserie chicken is excellent, but so is everything else on the menu," citing ample portions at reasonable prices and staff that "know the customers and remember you when you come back-even if it's months later."
The Seattle Times, NW TICKET, April 1, 2011.

Best of Western Washington 2012, King 5 TV
