Great staff - attentive, helpful and very professional. Food and drinks came quickly which was great given we had a concert to go to. Would definitely return.

The service was very mediocre. it would be nice to have them there when you are about to order because i nearly waited 20 minutes for them to serve. experienced the waiting before ordering twice. we only really came back because of the food.

My wife ordered fish. Came cold and not cooked properly. She returned it and we were not charged BUT THIS IS NOT THE POINT. I ordered lamb roast shoulder and was good quality. I asked with what accompaniment was the dishes served but I was told with nothing. You need salad You have to order separate. In short it proves the point that eating at Big Chefs restaurant does not guarantee quality but only high price. I short I would not be going again and I will not recommended it to any of my friends.

Felt relaxed and welcome as soon as we walked in. Service was fast, polite and non intrusive. Food was delicious, best wagyu beef I’ve ever tasted!

This was my second time with Garzi, the first time blew me away, couldn’t believe what I ate! The second time I was very disappointed, the flavours were not there, the service was great and quick, but I though the food lacked punch! My wife and I were very disappointed! Which was a shame! It may have been what we ordered but it was nothing that couldn’t of been achieved at home, homus and pita bread, come on George step up your game!!

I would only recommend people to eat at Gazi only once for the experience and to taste their food . I thought the doughnuts dessert was fantastic. I enjoyed the spanakopita gyozas and the calamari. My beef souvlaki was a bit dry and I had to ask for extra sauce. But given that this restaurant is top of the range, you should never have to add any extra sauce to your food.

Food was amazingly tasty, and the service was prompt and attentive. I only had an issue with the limited portions for the money spent. $33 for a glass of wine and small souva...

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!

Very average food, woeful service and poor acoustics. Won’t be going back nor recommending it to others. Particularly disappointing that the meat on the menu wasn’t from free range producers.

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.

Generally a very enjoyable experience. Had to ask for the bill twice and we didn't get our "mothers day" gift as promoted. Apart from that the food was really nice as per the norm.

The entree prawns was delicious but it was not devein and it was Abit put off to eat. The barramundi fish was oily but and not flavourful enough. Other than that it was good.

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!!!!
