The Puyallup Real Estate landscape has changed once again . . . Hunan Gardens on Puyallup's South Hill has been replaced by Mr. Greek. My wife Teri and I and a couple of friends visiting from Canada headed there last night for dinner to see what Mr. Greek was all about. When we arrived, the restaurant was fairly busy, but we were seated right away. The bar that was present with Hunan Gardens has been replaced by additional seating. When we learned Mr. Greek was a chain, I was a little disappointed and my expectations dropped a bit.
We ordered a few of the appetizers including the Medeterranian spinach dip, hummus, and tzatziki all accompanied with pita bread. The appetizers were VERY good! I especially liked the Medeterranian spinach dip! Of course I love feta cheese and the dip was sprinkled with crumbled feta cheese. Our guests ordered Souvlaki, one lamb and the other beef. Teri ordered the stuffed chicken breast and I had my standby of a classic Gyro.
The service was a tad slow and the waitress forgot a few items, but that's to be expected with a new restaurant I think. Hopefully they'll get the service issues worked out by the next time we visit. The food arrived in fairly short order and was presented very nicely. We're used to Johnny's Greek in Lakewood that's generally presented in baskets. My Gyro was tasty, but a bit on the dry side. The meat wasn't nearly as juicy and flavorful as Johnny's. The sides of Potatos and Green beans were excellent however. Teri commented that her chicken was excellent as did our guests about their Soulvaki.
We'll definitely make another trip to Mr. Greek. I think the minor issues were temporary and they'll get everything sorted out in short order. I'd give it 3.5 of 5 stars with hopes that will improve to 4 or better.
