We had a group booking for 15 people. Only 13 turned up due to last minute sickness. Before we started eating the restaurant insisted we pay for a banquet for all 15 people. They said they had already cooked the food. So we asked for them to take the price of corkage off the bill as a sign of good... More

We have been to Meet the Greek at least 8-10 times so I consider myself quite a regular. This place is always busy and I think that is the root of their problems.Service here has always been variable with a bit of an arrogant streak but the manager is in a class of his own. First though let's talk food.... More

This is another restaurant mass producing now-generic, over salted, garlic intense food with little creativity. Sydney is over the Greek tavern scene - much before gourmet Mediterranean meals. Of Greek descent we expected more than we got. The customer service was much better than described on Trip Advisor and the atmosphere really reminiscent of busy indoor taverns in the Peloponeise....

We went there with a group of friends on a Saturday night. The place was full with tables of 6-10 people, between 60-70 people in an area that should safely seat 40-50 at the most. There were so many people packed in the waiters had trouble maneuvering around the place. If we had a drink for every time one of... More

Enjoyed the food and the decor of this restaurant. Would return again if the chance arose. We had the 7 hour lamb shoulder and it fell of the bone and melted in the mouth. Great greek food.

Only 1 turned up thought they must have doubled the order as this one did appear to look like a lot. Ate the prawns and chips the rest of the seafood was tough was like eating... More

A great fitout with an authentic Greek buzz. Loud, noisy, a bustling diner not really suitable for a romantic night out but great to enjoy with friends. Service was quick with dishes coming out in very quick sucession, in fact a little too quick as our table was jammed with all the dishes we had ordered. never the less the... More

This would have to be the best food out Greece. I was immediately transported back to beautiful Greece with the hospitable service and the amazing food. I will defiantly be coming back time and time again.
