The standout on the menu is their souvlaki, a Greek specialty made with tender cuts of meat. At Icarus, a souvlaki platter consists of chicken, beef, lamb or smoky chorizo served with “Greek salad & Pilaf” or “Fries & Tzatziki.”

In addition to souvlaki, the place is getting a lot of raves for their house-made mezes and fresh salads. If you’re crazy for Greek food but do have dietary requirements, this restaurant is definitely your place because they do offer vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options.

As with a usual Greek meal, there are delicious dips to go with the pita bread. There’s their famous hummus, Tzatziki (Greek yoghurt, garlic, cucumber, and dill), kapoto (Greek carrot dip with walnuts, garlic & yoghurt), Skordalia dip (potatoes, garlic, lemon juice, walnuts & extra virgin olive oil), and Crete dip (grilled capsicums, eggplants, garlic & walnuts) among others.
