From the front it looks like a Greek Take-Away but there is a substantial dining area at the rear. We ordered the $58 Char-grilled platter for 2 and were very happy with it. Assorted char-grilled meats with a nicely cooked vegetable selection. Unlike some Greek restaurants, the size of the platter was perfect for 2. We were able to eat... More

Slightly off the beaten track, the Flame is a great restaurant in Surrey Hills. The owner serves home style Greek food with love. Unlike most Greek places, where the souvlaki spit is a blend of fatty meats, the lamb and chicken here were full cut, top quality and absolutely delicious. The Flame had a great meal, casual atmosphere and good... More

We look forward to our Greek take out nights. It's always a pleasure talking to Sophie, Harry and occasionally Denise- when she is around. The food is tasty, fresh and home cooked. We generally order the lamb, chicken gyros and some pita breads- and take the food home. It is something we really look forward to as it is a... More

Good Greek food. Typical fare, abundant serves and very filling. Grilled cheese and dips were delicious. Chicken slightly dry but otherwise everything was very tasty. Moussaka was especially good. This is a good, suburban, family restaurant. The take-away Souvlaki is also reported to be very good Friendly staff, quick service and nice atmosphere. Would return again.

I had attended this restaurant for years and loved the Greek cuisine, however, they suddenly upped the prices and reduced the amount of food your received. One night we received a salad for four that I thought was for one person it was that small. Not sure why they did what they did but as a result we were most... More

Briliant Greek Cypriot on Whitehorse Road Surrey Hills close to the 109 tram line and with plenty of parking nearby. The complete Greek eating experience - a family operation with friendly and attentive staff. For entree fetta and cheese was great - the BBQ Octopus was also superb. Main courses were dominated by seafood (prawns were great), top greek salad... More

We go here regularly and the food is consistently good, but the service by the waiting staff can vary widely. We have experienced excellent service at times, but next time we have gone, the great wait staff have gone and there are new people. Tonight, there were three serving staff - one very good, who was pleasantly working very hard... More
