Everything was fantastic, we had the 7 course tasting menu, all so good except the Loukoumades, very disappointing they were hard and dry, not much flavour at all.

I book Gazi every time I’m in Melbourne because it never disappoints! This time I brought a couple of Danish and Italian friends and they absolutely loved it too.
Gary is a very modern Greek menu that pushes the boundaries and soars beyond expectations.
The atmosphere is quite loud but exciting and we go to the late seating so you can have more chill time although the food comes out quite quickly.

It was very easy to book and make changes to that booking, even last minute.

The waitstaff are incredible. They read the subtle signs, they’re on top of the menu, they’re quick to respond, extremely polite and helpful. Their synergy with each other creates a great experience. To me, staff balances the food when it comes places like this and I’ve never been disappointed. Thank you to our fantastic waitress.

Loved it!

I have eaten here several times amd loved it, but Friday night was very mediocre. Service was scarce with drinks forgotten, when our mains were served we were informed one of our dishes were no longer available. The desserts were too large, the tart in particular and it was also too dry and even when vermouth was poured over. Very disappointed especially as I chose this place to celebrate the end of my comp prep and 20 weeks of dieting.

Overall food was good but service slow. We ordered restaurant express as part of MFWF but for a table of 5 we got the same quantity of food as the table for 2 next to us. For everything we needed, we needed to attract the attention of the service staff (drinks, order, coffee, water).

We have been to Gazi on numerous occasions over a few years and we have always found it very very good we keep going back because it is all.

The location is also very convenient for a night out via public transport tams & trains.

Thanks John......

Food was ok but everything was a bit salty for my liking. I also would have liked to have more vegetarian options. Although the food was nice I thought it was a bit overpriced.

Thanks we were having a business dinner and thought the food supplied was of a very high standard. we however found the restaurant very noisy and could not discuss business at all.
We will certainly be back for another evening meal where business discussions do not need to take place. Cheers and thanks

Such a cool vibe with impressive pots on the ceiling. The food was very generous and tasty. Good for a very special occasion as the prices are quite steep. But a wonderful treat of an experience.

I’ve been going for years & this time the place looked tiered, the waiters disinterested & food was edible. Left feeling disappointed & certain I won’t be going back any time soon. I mean even my chair was filthy & I had to put my napkin over it before sitting!!! Poor form

Understand that restaurants need to move people on to clear tables for new customers. However we were seated at a late seating 8.15 and felt rushed out the door within 30 minutes. Waitress was very annoying and pushy and made for a poor restaurant experience. Food was overpriced but tasty. Not good value for money. Overall experience was disappointing

Good for a team lunch but quite noisy and service very average. Not very accomodating to vegan dietary requirements which was surprising for such a high end restaurant in Melbourne. A bit expensive but good quality food with decent portion size.

The food was ok, but expensive and not really interesting. For the price I thought it wasn't good value. Very noisy and lots of tables. Hard even to move around the table. 2 hours sitting but it wasn't even full. will not be coming back or recommending to anyone.

Food was very tasty with amazing flavours! Portion size in terms of price, was on the small size. Place was extremely busy and I think because of that, the service wasn’t great. One of our party was served their food after everyone else had finished their dishes, which was annoying. I would go back for the food though.

It was meant to be a special night.
We accidentally got more food that wasn’t ordered, none of them were cooked well. Pork was dry and the lamb had more fat then meat.
We then got Greek coffee that wasn’t even done properly and we just got a sorry. Nothing at all was offered to us. Overall really disappointing. We had to cut our night short, due to the coffee making my husband very ill.
