Raw Review Leads UK Greek Restaurant Owner to Fire Back

After reading a review ripping his restaurant Alexandros in the English town of Carlisle, the owner – by the same name – used the same platform on Trip Advisor to suggest it was a setup blast. 

The diner under the pseudonym Famagusta99 said the food was beyond awful but owner Aris Panthanoglou smelled a rat, noticing the customer said he traveled 120 miles to eat during the COVID-19 pandemic before eateries were closed during another lock down in the country. 

The reviewer said the trip was made in the hopes of eating delicious food from their "homeland" – but described the moussaka as "inedible" and the souvlaki as "cheap meat in a skewer with raw potatoes.” 

Panthanoglou said all the food is prepared from scratch using locally-produced goods and doubted the reviewer's intentions, suggesting the claimed location from which the drive was made wasn't real either. 

The site LancsLive said he tracked and traced every customer from July 4 on and couldn't find any customers from the area from which the reviewer alleged to have come from. 

There's another clue. Famagusta isn't in Greece, but the side of Cyprus illegally occupied by Turkey.
