Visited this establishment last night. Service was available as soon as we sat down by Georgina a wonderful waitress. We had a five year old with us who she absolutely spoilt with a wonderful bowl of the best crispy chips ever. We had the $48 banquet every dish presented was mouth watering. Will definitely visit again.

Truly authentic Greek food with awesome flavors. The service was exceptional (efficient and friendly staff). The menu is quite extensive and the prices reasonable. The wine list... More

There were 7 of us so we decided to order some mains & share. We had the friend calamari, moussaka, cabbage rolls, vegetarian hot mixed platter & the... More

We had many selections from the entree section to be shared between us, the food came out promptly, was delicious and reasonable value. While we didn't have any... More

We had lunch here today and I can honestly say it was the worst greek meal I have ever eaten. The food was bland and sloppy and looked worse than school dinners. Everything was tasteless with no seasoning whatsoever. Moussaka had no flavour , vegetables were undercooked and the rice that came with it was hard and crunched when chewed.... More

We opted for the banquet, about 8 courses in all. Great food, very tasty with all the Greek crowd pleasers there, tsatsiki, saganaki, spanakopita, prawns, calamari, lamb cutlets and gyros, and to die for baklava! Very good dinner!

Really nice and cosy and suitable for couples or families/ kids. Staff are fabulous - very friendly and was welcoming. Shared a vegetarian platter with my daughter which was delicious - plenty of food (but also had pita bread and stuffed vine leaves on the side). Husband had slouvaki but was dissatisfied - complained that the whole serving was too... 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.
