I've been going to Maria's since I was a kid, 19 years later and it's still by far my favourite greek food anywhere! the tzatziki is AMAZING & you can definitely tell they make it from scratch. I can't say enough about the high standard of quality & hard work the entire family puts into everything they serve. i'll definitely... More

The food here is consistently excellent. A family business where you quite often can see both generations working together in a fun and welcoming atmosphere. Never turn down the Greek Salad.... authentic and the most delicious tomatoes anywhere. Relaxed atmosphere... a great place to spend some time over a meal with family or friends.

Dropped in with friends on a Sunday evening and was pleased as always with the food. The contents of the universal Greek salad were crisp and flavourful with the light dusting of feta as a topping. As others have commented the lamb is moist with an accent of the Greek yoghurt. It is a school cafeteria style place so prepare... More

I really love Greek food and I had heard this was a good place in Sidney. The food itself was average, and they didn't have the variety I hoped they would have. I love Greek rice and Greek potatoes, which is pretty standard fare at a Greek restaurant, but I didn't see either on the menu. Perhaps this is why... More

I've been to Maria's many times and the food is of a consistently average standard. The Greek salad tastes vinegary and there is very little flavour to the feta cheese sprinkled on top. . If real block feta in brine was used, it would boost the flavour of the salads immensely. The tzatziki was of a bland consistency and obviously... More

We go to Maria's at least a couple times a month and the food is consistently good. You go up and order your meal and, when it's ready, they bring it to the table. Can't say a lot about most of the food on the menu as I almost always order the Chicken Souvlaki wrap, it's very good and I... More

After reading all the reviews we went in with perhaps too high of expectations. We found the food average and over priced for the quality. We had souvlaki, greek salad, and dolomades. The flavor wasn't as good as we have had at other Greek restaurants. Staff very friendly.

Relatively quick service, though you have to order and pay at the counter, and superb souvlaki - the best we've ever had (even in Greece). Highest recommendation.

We went here with a group of 6, so we tried a little of everything, first of all it is very casual you order off the board on the wall and pay at the same time. We loved the tzatziki, hummus and pita. Greek Salad is fresh and they are not cheap on the feta. The guys had the gyros... More

We have been coming to this restaurant for years and we are never disappointed. They make the best fresh Greek salad. You can taste every fresh vegetable and the great feta cheese. The staff is friendly, the restaurant is always clean and affordable. We live an hour away but come to this restaurant at least once a month. I love... More
