I came here for a large (>20) Christmas party in early December. We bought our own wine and had the set menu. Plenty of good quality food. We were on two long tables which did feel a little cramped , but otherwise all was well and a venue I recommend for such a function.

I went there with a group of fourteen people. I liked the food and the atmosphere, but my biggest disappointment was the drinks service. I had to order three times before finally getting for my second beer and a further four times for my third beer, the waitress just didn't seem to care. I ended up going to the bar... More

Taverna Steki has been going strong for longer than me. It was a great night out when I was a student living in North Newtown, and I recently took my young family back there. Nothing's changed but the prices.

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

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
