Tasty Greek food with a Great Neighborhood Vibe

Kiki's Greek Restaurant NYC Lower East Side

About Kikis

 & why it made the Carpe City list

  • Casual Home-Style Greek with a Hip Vibe
  • Behind the Chinese character signage, you will find one of our favorite casual Greek spots in the city.
  • Kiki’s crowd is downtown trendy, which can sometimes be the kiss of death to good food, but not so at Kiki’s.
  • The food is delicious, and the comparatively reasonable prices make it even better.
  • Great food + cool crowd + affordable = consistently crowded.
  • Expect a wait even during the week at prime dinner hours. Kiki’s does not take reservations. (They will reserve for large groups, and they have a couple of great tables for group dinners.)
  • If you are a small party, seats in the window or at the bar are always a good bet.
  • The atmosphere is warm, cozy, and friendly, and the space has a rustic wood tavern look.
  • Get: Our tasting team members are all huge Greek food fans, and we’d like to suggest “The Whole Menu.” However, if we must narrow it down…. The dips. All of the dips. Especially the eggplant. Horiatiki salad, Octopus, Saganaki, Spanakopita, Lamb Chops, & Moussaka.
  • FYI for our cocktail lovers, it’s beer and wine only.
