Two majestic pillars stand guard at the entrance of GreekTown Grille, a large building painted in red with accents of soft blue and yellow, much like how ancient Greek temples are said to have been decorated. Inside, the Karamountzos family cooks a menu of Greek food that caught effusive praise in the Tampa Bay Times. Their signature octapodi skaras fans out grilled, seasoned tentacles on the plate under a drizzle of olive oil and lemon, prepping diners for
grilled chicken wrapped with tzatziki in warm pita and dishes of arni youvetsi—slow-braised lamb shank in tomato sauce. Under the high ceilings of the dining room and out on the patio, the national color of Greece infuses blue mosaic work and comfortable booths serve as secret portals to Mount Olympus.
The chefs at Tasty Thai Cafe piece together a spread of classic Thai recipes with garlic, coriander, mint, lemongrass, and other quintessential spices. Pad Thai, lad nar, and other noodle dishes share menu space with sweet and sour chicken, basil fried rice, and specialty creations, such as the Two Friends Panang curry filled with chicken and shrimp tethered by mixed vegetables and lanyard bracelets. Thai iced tea and coffee, wines, and desserts, including mango sticky rice and fried bananas, help round out each meal.

The "dhaniya" in Dhaniya Drums Indian Food's name is a Hindi word. It means "cilantro," and the culinary team delivers exactly that (the eatery was even formerly named Cilantro Indian Cuisine).
One of the signature dishes on Dhaniya's revamped menu is a choice of chicken, lamb, or goat, served in mint-and-cilantro sauce. Other authentic regional dishes from India are abound, too. The chefs mix biryanis with morsels of shrimp or egg and roast whole, spice-rubbed chickens in the tandoori oven. They also craft fusion eats, including Indo-Chinese noodles and fried rice. The kids menu also features a mix of mostly American and some Indian cuisine, ranging from pizza and fries, chicken nuggets, to chicken tikka wraps.
With a full bar, the meals pair with classic Indian drinks, such as lassis, and cocktails from around the world, such as martinis made with vodka crafted by South Pole elves.
