First time to a Greek restaurant, would go back again!

Never been to a Greek restaurant before and this was a spur of the moment decision with friends. All I can say is that this was an immensely enjoyable experience. We went for the banquet which gave a variety of different plates. The food was delicious, it's hard to pick out a favourite. The staff... read more

I have been eating at Tsindos restaurant at least ten times in the last three decades. I have enjoyed all the food and in particular the fish and other seafood is great. The wine are always exceptional. GK

If you want real Greek food, this is a must try in Melbourne! The place looks small but there is an upstairs which might not be so obvious from the street. As soon as we stepped through the door, we got greeted by the manager and offered a table upstairs as downstairs was packed! We orderred the Grilled Pita Bread... More

I've been hear once before and enjoyed the food so I took a few friends the other night before seeing a show. Unfortunately, it turned out to be a very disappointing meal and not a great way to start the night. We sat upstairs which wasn't as cosy and comfortable as the downstairs restaurant. We started with the dips which... More

A really great Greek experience. The food was excellent, not fine dining but good tasty home cooked Greek cuisine. It is obviously a family owned restaurant, and our group were treated as part of the family, with the staff friendly and chatty, which added to the experience. We will be back.

Well well well. All I can say is that our group of 7 had an entertaining and deliciously fabulous eating experience!!!! Alex our waiter was fantastic and made our evening brilliant. We ordered the sharing meal which was so yum. If I lived in Melbourne I know we would be regulars. I loved the seafood. Family styled food made with... More

We are not regular Greek food diners but we enjoyed the matronly attention. The food was convincingly authentic. I was not convinced when the sweet Greek red wine was offered but I enjoyed it. Service was quick although we were early and it was not busy.

Had dinner here over Easter. Most of the food was flavourless. The fried cheese was excellent. The lentil soup was devoid of flavour - I had to ask for salt and lemon to make it edible. The lamb, supposedly the speciality of the house was again tasteless and dry. Perhaps they don't use salt in their cooking here? It was... More

Every time we go to Melbourne we make sure we never miss out on a dinner here. Everyone is made to feel welcome and the food is good honest Mediterranean cuisine. Love it and can't wait to go to back again when next we are in Melbourne 😊

We would have liked to give 4.5 stars to this restaurant. Our table that we had booked, was waiting for us despite the huge Saturday night crowd with people being turned away. Food was great. Starters were calamari and haloumi cheese which arrived quickly. Mains were Kleftiko and the fish special, both excellent. Service was outstanding, such a nice waitress.... More
