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

Great service and great food. We had giro lamb and it came with lemon baked potato. The salad was fresh with feta and greek olives. This is Greek food at its best. Highly recommend.

Had lunch here tidy whilst visiting the city. The menu and prices were appealing. The beetroot and feta salad was very refreshing and of course the Greek style yogurt with honey and nuts is a must at a Greek restaurant. Lovely lady who serves us, definitely worth a visit.

Oh YES. Family style Greek food straight from a family kitchen. We ate until we could barely walk. Our toddler made a mess and they were completely fine about it, loved him. Go - it's fantastic.

Ate at Tsindos with 2 friends, on a whim, on Friday night. Service was warm but somewhat unprofessional (telling us mistakes that other waiters and chef were making etc) though efficient. We ordered a banquet which had SO much food, we couldn't finish it! I had been looking forward to dessert but couldn't squeeze it in, I was so full!... More

When entered the restaurant I was pleased to be taken up to the second level - nice quite relaxing atmosphere, compared to the ground floor/ entry. We were then greeted by. Rovena and her colleague with a (beautiful smile). We ordered eggplant dip with enough garlic and onion (yum) Seafood Saganski, pan fried seafood and a nice homemade tomato sauce.... More

Having tickets to a play in hand, we had time before the play to search for a nice looking restaurant---something that would finish off the evening just right. We chose Tsindos because of their menu and the size of the restaurant. They do present themselves well. Not to be. My husband had a dish consisting of three different items, and... More
