Just had the best night with best food and great staff. The eggplant dip with pita bread superb. Waiter attentive. Service quick. Perhaps a bit to quick if you are not in a hurry. Certainly can recommend this lovely Greek icon.

Delicious dinner at this local Melbourne spot in the Greek area of town. Ordered the lamb cutlets, a house specialty, which were perfectly prepared. This place has a family and home type of atmosphere. Very warm and welcoming. Service was excellent. I'll eat here again when I return to Melbourne.

Most are good, some are very good and we try to find a new one whenever in Melbourne. Tsindos, conveniently located in the "Greek Precinct" on Lonsdale Street is particularly good and a very happy find.... More

We tried this Greek restaurant and we were really satisfied. The place is very nice and cosy, food fresh and delicious. My souvlaki of lamb was the end of the world! A bit expensive but truly worthy.

We went here for dinner on a Friday night and the food was very good and service attentive and fast. Would happily go back if looking Greek in the city.

Delicious , authentic Greek food, friendly service and fantastic Greek band playing and singing Greek music(apparently only on Wednesday nights!)
