Terrific to be welcomed warmly by staff who love to have returning guests. The Greek Rose was a great accompaniment to the Black Angus steak which was cooked to perfection and the Mousaka which was a most generous serving accompanied by vegetables and chips. Greek salad is always refreshing and was served to compliment the meal. Classic Greek Baklava, served... More

Wonderful Greek food, we all ate different plates and each of us enjoyed the food. My husband had the seafood plate and he was sorry he could not eat every last mouthful as it was superb. My son had the mixed grill and also loved it. The tastes and were traditional Greek flavours so we were not disappointed.

Walked in off the street early and got a table but the place got full very quickly. The service was friendly and quick,we had the banquet for two which was fresh and very enjoyable which we finished but left the restaurant very full.

My sister and I decided to have dinner before the New Years celebrations. We had a banquet for two and the food was incredible. The amount was perfect for two and we finished off every course! Amazing front of house service and all the waiters/services were so polite and friendly. I recommend this restaurant to everyone! 11/10 :)

Following a friends recommendation I booked for a large family gathering. Excellent communication confirming booking with a reminder the day before in case our plans had changed. Met at the door by the manager and attentively looked after by the manager and our hostess Georgina throughout the evening. Orders taken by memory and served accurately, nothing was too much. Food...

Having walked for ages trying to find a restaurant that did something different than steak, pizza etc we found this little restaurant in the Greek quarter. The food was delicious (Lamb Kleftiko and Mixed Souvlaki with side salads and complentary warm bread and olive oil plus wine AUD 74.50) and came quickly, served by friendly staff. There are a few...

Just had dinner here tonight and had a lovely meal. The atmosphere was wonderful and relaxed with the owner greeting us and waiting on the tables. We had the dips and bread for entree. The dips were authentic and filled with taste and flavour. The bread was straight out of the oven and tasty just on its own let alone... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
