The vibrant menu includes influences and flavours inspired by the wider Mediterranean as well as an array of traditional Greek dishes, including the much loved Gyro, be that chicken, pork, lamb, meatball, king prawn or a plant based alternative. There’s something for all food lovers with fresh from the grill Souvlaki, chargrilled lamb Kofta, Falafel, and their famous Skepasti (Greek pizza).

The Halloumi Loaded Fries are a favourite for those who want to share, but the new menu also includes sharing dishes like Keftedes, Feta Tempura, and Donner Loaded Fries, as well as plenty of traditional side dishes like Pittas and Dips for a big hit of taste and flavour, showcasing the vibrant and modern Greek food scene that has emerged over the last decade.

General manager Andrew Kangulu said: “We are thrilled to open Gyros in Glasgow’s West End. Our sister brand, Halloumi has proven to be a huge success, with three locations, and has established a demand for Greek cuisine in Glasgow. Customers at Gyros can expect a casual dining experience full of traditional Greek flavours cooked lovingly while they wait using time-honored methods and long-established recipes."
