The food and everything else was very good except for the environment. Too much noise I could not even talk to the person sitting next to me.

They were lovely and the staff accomodating when we wanted to move inside away from the hot sun. Their computer system failed to register part of our order and wasn’t noticed by staff as they didn’t do the usual follow up. That could have been because of being busy that night. But they apologised and gave us a voucher for our next visit

Tbh we went here once before and visited other venues they have. Must say night was absolutely pathetic!!

Food was lacklustre, overcooked and just nothing like we’d had on previous occasions. Dips were bland and flavourless you can’t say your tzatziki is traditional as practically one baby strand of cucumber and just some cheap grainy yogurt. Gyros over cooked and again serving have been covidised with charging more but skimping more on product as well a dish filled with more overcooked beyond golden brown chips. Halloumi chips were actually putrid and spanakopita far from traditional coming out like an escargot and just being inedible as well.

Service so slow and practically non existent unless they were flagged down, soft drinks warm and serviced with ice which just was completely odd, don’t you have fridge space or maybe invest in an esky. Spirits flat and either filled 3/4’s or warm. Staff experience was a joke waits for drinks, drinks not processed no apologies, staff walking to the table with there fingers around the rims of glassware. Heads up bottom 1/3 of any glass is for the worked other 2/3’s for the customer.

Don’t get me wrong some places shut because covid caused them financial strain, this business should shut because it was honestly a really pathetic experience. Way to ruin birthday celebration for wife and I.

I suggest to anyone think twice before you look to dine here.

Great service very prompt, we ordered the meat platter for two which was generous in size and plenty for 2 people it lacked taste, lamb cutlets bland, chicken skewers were fine meat skewers dry overcooked sausage ok plenty of pita bread but only one dip taziki . Chips were nice with good seasoning and salad nothing special only 1 piece of feta in whole salad. the overall experience was not what i expected from a recommendation of family whom had been there before very disappointed

Good food but way too much. Couldn't get through half of it therefore a lot of waste.

I would definitely recommend as the majority of food was beautiful however $200 a head with only one drink included was probably a bit extreme even for New Years Eve!

My experience at the restaurant was quite average. The food was decent and portions were enough. However service wasn’t very great, I could tell staff weren’t equipped to make the environment accomodating. The view advertised was obstructed by the plastic rollers

Food was nice but service wasn't great, had to ask multiple times for tomato sauce for with chips and was disappointed to find they charged our group extra for a single tomato sauce. Other than that it was fine but Oakleigh has much better Greek food and service.

Absolutely beautiful tender meat, all of it, Lamb, Chicken, Pork. The soft drinks were served warm with a glass of ice (not ideal) . The clear blinds that were lowered for I’m not sure what reason as it was a delightful night were pretty dirty. Go here for some of the best meat you will ever eat and the garlic pita bread was very nice as well.

Had a booking made for 7.30pm on sat 4th Dec. it had been for approx 4 weeks. Arrived on time. Had to wait 10 mins to be taken to a table. The lady took us to a table she thought was no 19, however wen we got to it, table was for 4 people when our booking was for 6.
Taken to a different table & there was no cutlery, serviettes & water/glasses.
We order 4 coke zeros & wen they arrived none of the cans were cold. They were room temperature. we were given glasses with ice in them, however the ice blocks were already melting. Disappointing in the service given & time for food to be delivered.

Very bad experience, we booked a table that has a nice view, but they reserved us a table with obsructed view and they refused to change the table that has nice view. Also those tables were empty too..? Bad people to deal with.

The food was nice and plenty of it, we had the large banquet for 2 and we couldn't finish it. The food is a little expensive though for what it is and the wine is way over priced. $40 for a wine that retails for $8.

Overall a great mid week dinner location. The food tasted good but the chips and the meat could’ve been seasoned a little bit more however I know that some people like to moderate their salt intake.

The seafood platter is amazing, the lamb gyros is amazing, the pita bread, chips and tzaziki is amazing. They know what they’re doing. Never disappointed! They also made covid safe decisions well by checking vaccination certificate, all staff wore masks, it felt well ventilated. Thumbs up for safe dining!
