Although the food was great, we were let down by a grumpy waitress. We were also disappointed to arrive and find the bend over boxes unavailable for December - we were most looking forward to this.

Couldn't understand staff well, they didn't get our order right. The food that did arrive was okay except the mains were over cooked/dry. Was a little embarrassing as I had brought a team for a special event. Disappointing.

Food was fantastic. The restaurant was packed but the waiter was still able to be attentive, friendly and had a smile on his face. The noise level was very high so hard to each other speak at the table.

Great vib and food
Couple of down points . Had a booking and had to wait a couple of minutes while a walk in was questioning why he can’t get a table, yet there were 3 staff members dealing with him while I waited
Second point we ordered garlic pita and only received plain and reordered garlic pita again but no luck . Maybe the noise may have something to do with that 😂

The food has deteriorated in quality. The selection from the grill was one kofta on a stick, the selection of seafood was a piece of tuna. That was not adequate. There was no fresh salad and the Souvlakis make no sense, with frozen French fries replacing the traditional hand cut chips inside. The Loukoumathes were dense and nothing like the real thing. Melbourne street vendors make a better product. The menu is in need of some review in my opinion. Not good enough for Melbourne

Loved it, so glad we went! The vibe was energetic and service was superb. We were very well looked after and the waiter did not hesitate to stop us from ordering too much food. The food was delicious and wine list (by the bottle) was so reasonably priced. Will definitely be back.

The food was outstanding and the service was excellent.
The restaurant was a little loud for my taste, but it was lively and absolutely a place to be.
George's take on the pavlova is fun, interesting, and yum.
The shrimp was a such a hit we ordered a second plate.

What else can I say that has not been said yet? Nigella said they have the best chips in the world and they certainly do not disappoint, on the contrary - you just can’t stop wanting to go back for more! Superb selection of dishes on their menu. Authentic, mouthwatering, filling... fantastic! Gazi is my go to place for special nights, because Gazi itself is special too.
