This is the 3rd time my wife and I have been to YASSAS since about Aug 2021 (which was in between lockdowns in Melbourne). On two of those occasions we've had a guest with us. On this occasion we were pleased to see the city vibrancy return to both the restaurant and the surrounding area. The food is great and I like the fact there are sufficient attractive meals available for vegetarians. The location at Southbank right on the Yarra River is a bonus.

Have dined here several times both of which were yummy. My fellow diners thoroughly enjoyed dishes of various Mezes, the Dine-In Gyro & the Mussels. The band was excellent & created a lovely atmosphere, still allowing for conversation. Thank you for a great night

Not only is this restaurant in a great location on Southbank but parking under the building after hours (when you book online) is only $8! There is then a lift that takes you straight up to the restaurant's level. I always say that you know you have been to a good Greek restaurant when you leave feeling full and there is still food left on the table! We had the banquet which was not only good quality and a broad selection but plentiful as well. My guests were also impressed so that's great as well. The time taken to bring out the meals was quick and the service staff who were very friendly were always enquiring to see if everything was ok. A nice touch to add (to make it similar to restaurants in Greece) would be something at the end of the meal "on the house". Sometimes they bring you some fruit, other times a liqueur. Overall, would definitely be going back.

Fantastic restaurant but very noisy. We could not hear what the waitress was saying to us nor our conversation. Also we asked for more drinks but the waitress could not serve us alcohol but requested another person to take our order. After waiting for about 15 minutes we gave up and left. But food is great

Food was nice, one meal didn’t present so that was disappointing , been there twice now, would go again, very busy, waiting staff should’ve noticed 3 were eating and one was looking like a sad dog with nothing in front of her, had to remind staff twice the meal hadn’t arrived, then took another 15 minutes for it to arrive, by then politely declined the meal and was given a 10% discount , one mistake will not deter us from reattending.

Yassas restaurant was a great choice for a pre theatre dinner, the food was excellent. Superbly cooked and portion sizes are ample, plenty to share around for tasting. The waiting staff were very busy but we didnt feel ignored or left out, they did very well. My only complaint is that it was extremely noisy and hard to hear close conversations. A must visit again venue.

We ordered the ultimate feast. The entree was out fairly quickly, however we had to ask when the mains would arrive as it had been over an hour since the entree.
The food was cooked perfectly and the prawns were absolutely delicious - best thing in the menu.
The desserts were not adequate for the price. 1 piece of baclava, and 2 pieces of the same cake. There were 3 of us dining.
We did not receive any cheese platter and only realised this after we left.
The wine was very, very expensive for a bottle. One of our guests also asked for an extra glass of pinot and was delivered a glass of sauvignon blanc - she told the waitress immediately and the wine was taken away and a new glass of what she ordered was delivered. Both glasses were on the bill and we had to argue with the manager to get him to understand the error and take the price off the final bill.
We left quite full and happy but do feel $85pp for food without a drink and then missing out on the cheese platter, was a steep price.

Although we (party of four) enjoyed the food, the service was shocking. We didn’t get our drinks until we’d finished the meal, despite asking four times for staff to follow up. We also asked for additional pita bread several times, but by the time it arrived we no longer wanted it.

When we asked for a discount the pita breads and two non-alcoholic drinks were taken off the bill but we were told by the staff member at the till he couldn’t take the alcoholic drinks off. We should probably have asked to speak with the manager. We were also offered a discount at a future time but two of us are from the Mornington Peninsula, and frankly, we wouldn’t go there again.

Service was terrible, we had $85 p/p feast and feast it was not! Entree's were reasonable, fish/prawns/calamari were good, muscles were small and dry and all meat was horribly dry, did not finish. Complained and best offer was 10% off, still spent over $200. Disgusting!!

I really loved the location, I've been to the same restaurant with the previous owner but now I was more happy than ever. The food was very tasteful ,very well cooked and very fresh but I would prefer if they had some of the meat options unmarinated especially without pepper cause my wife is allergic but still 1 of the best pork I ever had and the salmon was awesome ! Great service and I will definitely go back

Once again, our table for three cannot fault this restaurant. Not only are the staff, friendly, professional and courteous, they were particularly helpful in assisting with the menu.
The service was constant without being overbearing and the food was absolutely delicious. We have been to this restaurant three times over the past 12 months and each time has been an absolute pleasure.
We cannot fault Yassas and will definitely be visiting again.
