Edamame Sushi + Grill is a unique and new restaurant environment designed around an upscale cafeteria style experience. Intimate Dining Pods at various levels frame the open Kitchen complimenting the active environment within the exterior green enclosure.

The hair salon is located inside the Golden Hall shopping center in Maroussi. It is a long and narrow space with a particularly high ceiling and limited forefront.
