$10.90 for a huge portion of souvlaki. Opted for a takeaway this time and the souvlaki seems to be cheaper for takeaway? Definitely will come back! Came here several times and souvlakis here are consistently good and has a much bigger portion unlike some famous brand at Emporium.

We went there at a friends recommendation and were pleased to do so.The energy level there is quiet high as it a family run institution.The food was absolutely amazing and the portion sizes were large in accordance with Greek hospitality. Highly recommended!

This is an amazing place to eat. The food is amazing, the atmosphere is warm and the staff are fantastic. My husband and I had dinner there and were sad to have not been able to fit all of the food in that we ordered. I have eaten here before and it is still a lovely place to go. It... More

Huge line out the door and we were still seated in less than 10mins. Incredibly popular and a must visit if you're from out of town. Staff are great and food is incredible!

Authentic Greek food with a fair number of options for those who need gluten free. The mixed gyros platter (chicken & lamb) was huge but all meat. Need to order extras for sauce or veg. Best deal if you're not Celiac is the huge souvlaki in pita bread for only $12.50. Stuffed with sauce and veggies. The restaurant is very... More

I'm a boring eater when I go there as I believe the best thing on their menu is the mixed kabab. I've been with work colleagues for lunch, I been with a friend for early dinner before a show and I've met family there for dinner. My tip is to go early even for lunch if you want to avoid... More

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...
