While we enjoyed most of the food, the restaurant was extremely noisy even though it was half full. We had to shout to be heard on a table of four people. The wine was overpriced also. The noise issue needs to be addressed as it was often mentioned in previous reviews.

Always enjoyed the fabulously tasty food here - tender lamb falls gently off the bone, zucchini flowers, dip and pita and fries with feta. Our tomato salad was forgotten but we were too full anyway! Noise level is too loud, thumping music is unbearable! Nice cocktail, glass of wine and generally good, cheerful service helped allay the annoyance of the noise!

Fantastic evening with friends enjoying superb Greek food in a lively buzzing atmosphere
We arrived at 5.30pm and the place was already lively, the couple ahead of us were just told that it was at least an hours wait for a table. Thankfully we had booked a week in advance and had a table waiting. Service was friendly and relaxed, and excellent. The food was all sensational, from start to finish. The chicken skewers were unbelievably delicious, and the pavlova was beautifully presented.
I can highly recommend Gazi, but book ahead to avoid disappointment.

Amazing, great food, even better service, there was a mix up with our table and they waiter was extremely apologetic but made sure we had a great experience. Waiters were professional, my husband and I still can’t stop talking about the food! Highly recommended

Gazi was fun, if noisy. The food was simple, but done brilliantly. The South Korean waitperson was fantastic, very friendly and knowledgeable - and happy to engage. Wr had the Beta menu, and mistakenly ordered extra bread - we didn't need it.

We ordered the $69 “feed me” menu and after receiving the first few courses nothing arrived for around 30minutes. We had to inform staff that we had a concert to attend and then had to eat our food extremely fast after it arrived. Our dessert was put into boxes for us to take away but 2 out of the 6 were missing.

Hugely underwhelming food. Good dips to start, but totally dry and tasteless chicken, an arancini allegedly filled with moussaka, but only contained cloying bechamel. Second time I've been, second time very disappointed. There won't be a third chance.

We took our friends who were in Melbourne for the tennis who had travelled from Narrabri in northern NSW, I feel so proud to be able to showcase such a superb establishment

Had the Gazi Greek yum cha. Good food, not great, and just not enough to be value for money. Some dishes were great others a bit weird and kinda bland. VERY noisy too so be warned. Not in a rush to return to be honest.

Having had Gazi on our radar for lunch/dinner on many a trip to Melbourne from Sydney .. at last we made it. And all i can say is it will be on our itinerary on all future visits.
The service snd anbirnce were great .. and the food ... OMG !
Make this a MUST on any inter-staters visit

Make sure you plan early if you want to book ... else it’s a walk-up and wait

In awe of thexteam at Gazi

Very busy lunch. Tasty food. Cuttlefish was very tender. Calamari a tad challenging to cut being in such a big piece. Object to surcharge on debit card.. surely reflected in cost of food.
Lovely lunch

We had a 2 hour booking. But we were constantly pestered so decided not to buy more rounds and to move on.

New menu is very expensive ($17 for a small souvlaki that previously cost $12). $29.90 Bend over box no longer available and the replacement $29.90pp option is not flexible to our groups needs (We really want an option with a souva).

Probably won't be back unfortunately.

Food, as expected, was great. Nothing fancy here, just great flavors excuted through simple cooking.

Standouts had to be the chargrilled cuttlefish and grilled chicken. Overall, great meal with a great atmosphere.

Service level was cordial and average. Nothing to shout out about.

Lovely food in a nice environment. The lamb was so good we ordered a second serving. The only thing I didn’t like was the addition of a credit card charge to the bill when they didn’t know or didn’t ask how I was going to pay.....which was cash

The food is always delicious, and we were incredibly appreciative of the lovely gesture recognizing our anniversary on the night.

The only area where perhaps an improvement in service could be achieved would be in relation to staff's knowledge of the wine list. Our waitress was unable to assist me in choosing a suitable wine with the only contribution when I asked if there was a wine option that wasn't too dry being 'everything is dry'.

Thank you again for a delicious experience. We'll be back for our anniversary again next year.

Gazi is just too noisy. Our table of 7 could not all join in one conversation as it just too hard to hear each other. We tried to discuss food options with the waitress but we really could not understand or hear well. Our meals were then totally confusing when they arrived. Be it, the food is lovely, except the food really needs to be shared. Our Group wanted to have individual meals and this did not work so well.
We would not return.

Once you get used to the noise levels in the room, it is great. Food - especially dips are to die for. Beetroot falafel was overwhelmed by the wrap (too much dough or not enough falafel. Chicken was a little bland and tuna fish grilled not great
