Always really enjoy dining at Gazi. We were greeted as soon as we entered the restaurant by a friendly attendant who then gave us a table option of by the window or not. We also ordered some drinks at the bar while we waited for the table and just overall all the staff we spoke to were very friendly and just made the experience really good. The food was so good my boyfriend and I loved every dish!! We will be back again

My friend recommended Gazi to me. I was in Melbourne for a special weekend away with my mum. We both have an appreciation for simple food done well and I think Gazi is just that!

The service was beyond amazing... the waiters were very proactive in describing the menu and even suggested to get half servings of some dishes which was clever.

We ordered the hero dish - The a roast lamb. My god, it was bloody amazing. And those chips! Yum.

I’ll be back!

We went as a family. Extremely loud and dark for kids. More appropriate for after work drinks. Food was ok. I went about a year ago and food was out of this world, so was disappointed this time. No kombucha anymore?! 😭

I have a friend going to Melbourne for the long weekend and I have already recommended that she go to Gazi as she will not be disappointed.

The service was outstanding as was the food. Our waitress assisted us with how much we needed for 5 ladies to share and she was spot on. The lamb fell off the bone and the chips are the best.

Thank you Gazi will definitely be back!

I was not very happy with the 4 tiny pieces of squid that we received, much too expensive for what appeared on our table. The pork belly skin was chewy and only 'crackly' on the very edges which made it inedible. I was very disappointed considering I was a returning customer after a fantastic experience the first time around. I lashed out to take my mum for her birthday so was a bit sad. The service was great though.

We had one of the set menus and it was spectacular. Every dish was exceptional and the sheer quantity of the food was more than ample for two hungry people. I would particularly single out the dips and the lamb shoulder. The young waitress really knew her hospitality and was friendly and very helpful. We will certainly go again

From walking through the doors the staff were absolutely amazing. Very attentive without overdoing it. The food was great - it was a great fusion between the street food I've experienced in Greece with sprinkle of class on top. The venue is amazing and I really couldn't fault our experience. Thank you again to all the staff.

Great venue, great food & great service. Went before a game at the "G". Much more pleasant than the local pub options & food much more delicious and comparatively not that expensive given the quality all round. A great place to meet friends before a footy game and be able to talk!!!!

We ordered chicken from the spit so anticipated a sizzling hot dish - it was cold and over cooked, obviously sitting for some time.
Service was chaotic and novice
Overpriced

We visited twice. First time it was so full and the tables were so close together and it was super noisey. Hard to hear the waitress but the second time we went a bit earlier it was so quiet and lovely. Both times were amazing and I will be back!
