I've visited the venue at least 6 times over the past 10 years and the quality and flavour of the food hasn't changed. Every time I receive a warm welcome followed by a fresh, hot and tasty meal from staff who are almost always pushed due to the busy nature of this restaurant. This is fairly fast food not a... More

This restaurant was soooo bussy even at 11:00pm. Takeaway was out the door. I like a good souvlaki and this is pretty good for the price you pay though when I asked for chill sauce it was extra on top of the standard - surprise surprise. It tasted great and better value over a chicken wrap from nandos which is... More

We were wandering around Lonnsdale St after Les Mis last night looking for a dinner option. Wednesday in Melbourne, should be easy. We went past lots of eating venues and settled on this Greek restaurant which runs 24 hours because it was packed and had a short queue. We were happy we did. The food was great and the service...

was very busy when we went and we were ok with the wait for our meal. We could see how popular it was with the queues of people waiting outside. So we were a little disappointed with the meal when it did come along as we were expecting more given how popular it seemed to be. My husband found it... More

Large amounts and just fantastic food! Truly one of the best we've had. Taxi driver had recommended it and although had not planned to go there, we came across it while walking and decided to give it a shot. Highly agree with the recommendation!

I will make this brief: Food is great, they are lining up out the door to get in! Food portions are very large so make sure you go starving cause we could not finish ours! They cater for dietary issues, we had a Coeliac with us and they were brilliant and knowledgeable! Service was a tad slow but it was... More

Located right at the corner of Lonsdale & Russell Street in Melbourne CBD, this place is open 24 Hours and is almost always packed and teeming with customers and busy waiters and waitresses going about keeping the endless stream of customers pleased. Whenever I visit Melbourne, Stalactites is always a must-stop dining place! I'd strongly recommend the Lamb Souvlaki for... More

Delicious Food at a very reasonable price! We have the lamb & chicken souva's & they were AMAZING! It's open 24 hrs, we only waited approx 15 mins to be seated & that was during peak time on a Saturday night 8pm.....meals were brought out quickly! Very happy, will go back again definitely! No booking required either!

The serves are massive so you could save a bit and just get entree size. Most tables had plates with unfinished meals- just because they couldn't eat anymore. Nothing spectacular but warm and cosy food and friendly atmosphere
