According to a recent Tripadvisor review, this is the best Greek restaurant in Sydney. If so, the rest must be somewhere below abysmal. We were a group of seven who had booked for a significant birthday, a 60th. On arrival, we were shown to a rear room, well away from any entertainment. We were seated in what the manager said...

I'd never heard of Steki until a friend recommended it, so went in a group of 4 last night. 2 I'd our group are Greek (recently here from Greece. Both agreed the food was the best and most authentic they have had in Sydney. The bread with the tzatziki was hot and delicious, the calamari was cooked to perfection, so... More

I've been to Steki a couple of times now and really enjoyed it both times. The atmosphere is what it's all about. It seems like everyone who eats and works in there knows each other but when you visit you don't feel like and intruder, you feel like you're invited to the party. Both times I went for the set...

Went there for our work Xmas party. After arranging with management the set price per person (which we got from their website) they tried to charge us $6 a head more. They said their website wasn't current....whose fault is that!! We paid the price we were quoted....most of the food was good but a little salty! Had to wait a... More

OMG, I loved this place! I went recently with a group of approx 10 people. We order lots of entrees and wine to share amoungst the table. The food was absolutely mouth watering and the greek wine was so refreshing! The service was also very friendly and helpful (explaining the dishes) and food was quick to the table. There was... More

My family and friends took me to Steki taverna for my birthday as it is one of my favourite restaurants in Sydney. It is definitely the best Greek experience outside of Greece. The food and atmosphere are both authentic and plentiful topped off by the live music. I have been dining at Stekis since my university days many years ago... More

Went to Steki mid-week. I think a Greek restaurant needs a big crowd, music and some spare plates (for throwing). The servings were large but in the end it is the taste that is important and on this measure the restaurant failed. Doubt whether I would go again.

On entering on a Saturday night I thought "nice buzz with live music". But within a short time all positive vibes dissipated. Firstly the food was really awful in my opinion. My dish, a sort of escalope reminded me of a seeping wound. Sorry to be so graphic but it was probably the most unappealing dish I have ever been... More
