Have been here on a few occasions and all have been very enjoyable. Lovely food, good portions, although their set banquets are a great selection but too much food but then again am not used to spending 3 hours or so around a table just eating food as you would in Greece. Found the wine prices on the high side.... More

I have been here a few times and most times have enjoyed the meals but was disappointed this time round! The dips were very average and the bread was too hard. The chicken skewers didn't look very 'Greek' and tasted bland. Not sure if they've had a change of hands. Not sure I would go back.

Quiet for a Friday night, 7-8pm post New Year and while China Town is general buzzing, Kri Kri is at the top, more sedate end and maybe suffers slightly. Service was good and attentive so no problems there. Apart from the set banquets which may be good value for big appetites, the a la carte menu has a reasonable range... More

The food is excellent. Generous servings. The service wasn't great unfortunately - our order was taken quickly which was great, but then the staff were nowhere to be seen or with head down on the computer. It was difficult to order another beverage.

We arrived and were seated quickly but then no one came to our table for 25 minutes. We ordered entrees, mains and drinks all at once and after another 40 minutes we had only received our entrees. When she took our orders she didn't write any of it down and consequently forgot about our drinks order entirely and we had... More

We had the banquet number two and the food was just totally amazing. Beautiful selection of dips to start, stuffed mushrooms, haloumi cheese, calamari, chorizo, meatballs and the most tender pieces of lamb and lamb cutlets. Too much food for 2 people and the rest went home in a doggy bag. Fantastic memorable meal and very well priced. Washed down... More

The food here is pretty good. We shared the stuffed mushrooms, lamb shaslicks and beetroot salad. The mushroom dish was quite small for $25 but with the lamb and salad the quantity was about right. Although the mains were modest in size the desert was huge, and delicious. We shared the warm custard with pastry and one between two was... More

I've been to Kri Kri a few times over the years as I really enjoy this style of food and this is one of the best. I think it may have changed owners lately as the staff are all new but the quality of food and service is still first rate.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving up age-old recipes. The lighting may be unromantic, the patrons loud, and the service no-nonsense, but the food is sensational.
