Thomas' Shack

Η καλύβα του Θωμά - Cypriot Taverna

Choose your own sides!

Fancy fish but don't feel like chips? Want to crunch into a crispy fresh salad with your pork chop? Maybe you'd prefer rice? Or a jacket potato? Or a pepper sauce with your grill? At Thomas' Shack the choice is yours! Mix and match the freshly prepared salads and side dishes to accompany your choice of fish or meat. Our grills are cooked to order on a real charcoal grill, ensuring quality, flavour and freshness.

In our friendly traditional-style taverna you can also enjoy Cypriot favorites made from great quality fresh local produce like beef stifado, dolmades, mousakka, or kleftiko - slow-cooked lamb which needs to be ordered 24 hours in advance, and of course Thomas' famous ribs to name but a few.

There is also the Thomas' Travel menu featuring a choice of international dishes and some great curries.

In any case, sit back and relax Cypriot-style, Thomas will look after you as if you were guests in his home, let that stress slip away and enjoy your meal!

About Thomas - "The Mad African"!

Thomas was born and brought up in the Congo where he lived until he was 16 years old. His passion for cooking was born there as he watched his mother prepare meals for the family. He moved to England aged 16 where he would spend 13 years working in a variety of jobs, mostly restaurants, including 1 year in an Indian restaurant. His great pleasure was, and is, to invite friends round and cook traditional Cypriot dishes for them. He came back to Cyprus and started up his own taverna where he can combine the pleasure of cooking and meeting people - new and returning guests. He always takes to time to come and chat at your table; he has some fascinating stories to tell about his travels and his dishes!
