Located on the south side of MingHua road,
between FuGuo and ZihYou 2nd roads (look out for the bright
blue sign outside), lies a restaurant that is sure to conquer
the hearts and minds of patrons seeking succulent lamb dishes
and tasty yogurt sauces. The Parthenon Mediterranean Restaurant
is the first Greek restaurant in Kaohsiung, with a 'mediterranean'
emphasis, to offer such specialties at an affordable price.
Owners John Charlesworth and Carolyn Chen know that success
in a restaurant lies in its authenticity. Therefore they have
created a spacious eatery filled with the true tastes of far-away
With fresh ingredients in mind, customers can enjoy the 'Pita
Time' special (NT$180), Mondays to Fridays from 2 - 5 p.m..
Here, any alcohol-free fruit juice or tea priced under NT$80
is included with basket of delicious Kalamari, Marides with
a creamy jalapeno/mayo sauce, a small salad, thick cut fries,
a side of tzatziki, and fresh baked pita bread. During the
same hours you can get the 'Tea Time' special, with your choice
of specialty cakes and coffees (NT$99). On weekends you can
enjoy that rich cup of coffee with a side of tzatziki and
pita bread for only NT$139.
Always striving to offer their customers
the best, The Parthenon regularly add new dishes to their
menu. Along with these new offerings, they continue with their
regular choice of main dishes starting at NT$200, and the
business lunch for NT$150 (11:30 a.m. - 2 p.m.). Truly a favorite,
don't miss the lamb souvlaki and look out for the sweet spare
rib dish coming soon. Come for a birthday celebration and
enjoy a free gift, compliments of the house. All take-away
orders are still 20 percent cheaper, and by buying a coupon
for NT$1000 you will get an extra NT$100 coupon.
On the second floor of The Parthenon, customers can see some
of the offerings from The Green Shoppe, also owned by Carolyn
