Authentic Greek

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... read 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.

Well we weren't disappointed. The food was awesome. The atmosphere quite lively, nice music and the staff very friendly. Definitely looking forward to coming again next time we are... More

We were seated without a greeting, the waiter seemed really cold and bitter. He handed us a menu and didn't say anything. Browsing through the menu everything seemed really expensive. $6 for dip? Nothing really took our fancy. We ordered the $80 'Meat the Greek' a salad and a beer. The beer was warm, $8 and very disappointing. Salad came... More

Would recommend the rotisserie meat skewer, feta and green pepper pita dip, honey and feta filo parcels (OMG!) and haloumi plates! One of the tastiest meals I've had in a while. Paris was lovely, and the other staff seemed friendly enough. Would recommended upgrading their beer list. It's rare to see VB on a fine dining menu these days.

We were staying overnight in a hotel just down the street, using Sydney as an overnight stopover and flying home the next day. We are not familiar with Sydney at all so when we realised we were staying in a Greek/Lebanese community in Sydney we jumped at the chance to eat some authentic Greek food. Meet the Greek was just...

Had dips. Ordered 2 glasses of wine only one arrived. Manager comes and tells me we need to order more. I mean who the hell is he to determine what we want? Wine came late after reminding the waiter. Finally when we went to pay I was showed gratuities and asked to give tips. Absolutely worse ever place I have... More
