Gazi has a great atmosphere. The food is tasty but a bit overpriced considering the food is very similar at Jimmy Grants.

We really enjoyed the food. So tasty. We appreciated the time spent explaining the menu to us as we’d not been there before. The restaurant was busy but not too noisy that you couldn’t hold a conversation. The share plates are a great idea.

Food was terrible, cold, tasteless and looked like a dogs breakfast. After all the media hype about this place I was expecting something at least better than the garbage we were given. Greek Street what a joke. .

We had a table of 9, 8 adults and 1 toddler. They supplied a booster seat for our toddler. The staff were friendly and the food was delicious. We tried a wide range from the menu, the lamb shoulder with garlic was definitely a favourite.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
