The Tsindos serves great traditional Greek fare in a warm and relaxed setting. We had the grilled calamari and spicy sausages as mains, and they were delightful, as was the Greek wine. The restaurant had live music, which was most enjoyable and played at a volume that allowed folk to listen and appreciate or to continue a conversation without shouting.... More

We decided to eat during the Greek Festival. We stood in line to get in. The staff was not very friendly. And we were placed at a table we did not like, but we got no choice. We decided only to have the main course. Lamb Kleftiko The meal arrived within minutes and the lamb was barily warm. But it... More

Everything went perfectly! The service was second to none, food exquisite and venue somewhat quaint. My partner and I both very much enjoyed our experience.

A lovely meal we had, even though we were short of time. Lovely Greek lady served us, very friendly and the food was lovely. The melitzanosalata was the best I have ever had and I have had a few ... Worth going back to!

Of the several Greek restaurants on this block, this seemed the nicest and most popular as we walked by. We ordered the slow cooked lamb, and Makedonikos Tsantali wine. Soooo good!

We used my Trip Advisor app on my mobile to find somewhere to eat in Melbourne - aren't we glad we did! This restaurant was busy (good sign when others are nearly empty) with live music downstairs and a typical Greek feel to the décor, both upstairs and downstairs. We had a friendly waitress who was very helpful with the... More

This was our second visit to Tsindos and the food was just as good as the first meal we had there. The meal sizes are generous and the food is simply sensational. Live entertainnment topped off a great night.

We had decided to dine at a Greek restaurant as we were staying near the Greek Precinct. We chose this one since it seemed busy, we liked the menu and the restaurant interior was light and bright. The food we ordered was good and reminded me of sunny days in Greece. The menu is as one might expect, with the... More

We decided to eat here during the Greek Festival last weekend. The service was poor right from the start. When we arrived, the server asked how long we would be and would we be in and out within the hour!! Should have know then to walk out and try another restaurant. Once we sat down, we were handed the "Festival... More
