The restaurant has nice environment. The staffs are friendly. When I was there, a table of customers were celebrating, the staffs were very helpful giving surprise. I ordered Piatela Kreatika, cost $30, it taste good but just a bit over priced.

The place was almost empty when we got there it filled fast. I ordered slow cooked lamb husband seafood. The lamb was a shank tender with no flavour at all. Husbands food looked like most was from a box of frozen , the felliow was nice but the food was basic. I wouldn't go back

This restaurant was close to our hotel and it was definately a high light to our trip. The slow roast lamb was unforgettable. This is a family style greek restaurant. Moderate price, understated from the street view, and over delivers on the good honest flavours. This restaurant is added to my list of trusty "go to" restaurants.

We went for dinner here last night and we were very disappointed. We waited for an hour for our meal even though the restaurant wasn't full. The table wasn't set and we had to ask for cutlery. When the meals did arrive they were very small and basic. We won't be back.

For authentic traditional Greek fare, you can't go past Tsindos. We always dine here at least once when in Melbourne and never fail to be pleased that we did. Excellent wine list too.

Dined here on my own on a Friday night. The food wand service was fantastic. Typical greek fare as you'd expect, with the meat platter being the highlight. I found the calamari to be a little bland, but still delicately cooked. My only criticism would be the seating arrangements. I was located right at the front window with the menu... More

The service was very friendly and really helpful. The prawns saganaki were fantastic - a big hit with everyone. The favourites of the night were the garlic prawns, the moussaka and the... More

Simply Mediteranean. Nice pita, dips with cheese. Lamb though nice still has lamb smell. Not too soft, roasted . Lots of olive oil. Mostly grilled.

Our favorite restaurant in Melbourne!!! Each trip to Melbourne we dine here more than once.
