Dining in Greece is not just about Greek cuisine. We recently tried the authentic Thai restaurant Andaman and we highly recommend it if you want to have ethnic dishes while in Athens.

Excellent service that bring delicious plates on your table, always happy to help customers. The menu is short but surely will please you. Start with a Tom Yum Goong soup, an excellent  soup with prawns, lemongrass and lime leaves. We tried the Pad See Ew noodles and the Fish Curry with ginger sauce. Both very aromatic and beautifully spiced.
