All good for a Christmas Party

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.

We went here for a family dinner for our son's 21st and had a fantastic evening. Felt transported into Athens, which we didnt expect after driving through Newtown! We had a selection of dips and chose from the a la carte menu, with all of us saying how much they enjoyed it. I had the Greek lamb (to be recommended).... More

Tucked away in the vibrant and trendy suburb of Newtown, lies the authentic Greek Taverna called Steki. I have been to Steki on numerous occasions and it has always been an absolute delight. The food is incredible! My favourite dish is the baked lamb with potatoes and the Saganaki. There are no words to describe how tasty the Saganaki dish... More

We were very excited to visit Steki's again as it was so good when we went two years ago however, this time was very different. We had the banquet for two and it took over two hours to be served up. The dolmadas were not fresh at all; in fact we believe they were canned, the food lacked flavour and... More

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...
