We found this restaurant on TA and nearly didn't get a table as a walk-up because they were so busy. However, the manager found a table outside and helped us wait until we could move in doors. The food is traditional Greek and wonderfully prepared and served. We started with the mixed dips and my 10 year old fell in... More

We found this place by reading the reviews on trip advisor and going for a walk up Lonsdale street. The staff we super friendly and the food was amazing. Very fresh products cooked to perfection. I would recommend this to anyone wanting a Greek meal that tastes home cooked and simply superb!!

We discovered Tsindos last week on our way to see Strictly Ballroom on stage and we were warmly welcomed altho' we were new customers with no reservation. I had the melinzanosalata -- similar to baba ganoush, but chunkier and absolutely delicious! -- and the beet root salad, which was also superb and enough to fill me up. My husband and... More

The food was fantastic! One of those meals to long remember. Prices were reasonable as well. Service was excellent....until the end when the waiter was very forward about asking for a tip. I do not believe tipping is customary in Australia and this made us both uncomfortable. My apologies if tipping has become the norm since my last time in... More

This Greek restaurant is found in the Greek district of Melbourne. The decor is pleasing and the welcome was genuine and warm. Lots of daily offerings but I choose the beet salad and the kleftiko - a very old Greek lamb dish. The beet salad was delicious and the lamb was very tender and flavourful. Enjoyed a very good bottle... More

We were tired and hungry and a group of 6 with teenagers and all, not very easy to accommodate fast and this little Greek place did it ! The service was friendly and the food was really good and fresh for a down town place also it was incredibly fast so everybody was happy. So if you are visiting Melbourne... More

We were pleasantly surprised at this find. The food was delicious - we had heaps of the small dishes so we could try everything. Enjoyed chatting to the waitress about how she came to Australia & her life since. Super friendly & good experience for us

There are numerous Greek restaurants in Lonsdale St, which was our backyard when we lived in Melbourne. We tried several but Tsindos became our favourite. The staff knew us so well they would get our drinks without even asking what we wanted. The food is simple, tasty and real. You must try the capsicum saganaki for entree. I love the... More

The food was mostly quite good with decent portions, the moussaka was definitely bigger than I'd ever seen it before! Service want great, though - for example, our main course arrived while we were still working through our starters. Also, we went there on a Monday and the are definitely some items on the menu that are only available on... More
