Went for lunch here with a friend, and I'm now insisting we have a standing lunch date at Maria's whenever I'm visiting. Cozy, family-run place, with food my friend says is always so good. Prices are reasonable. Finally some amazing, truly lemony sauce dolmades that I'd been missing since my favourite Greek closed at home. Looking forward to popping in... More

I have been eating regularly in Sidney for the past year, and have been a regular patron to Maria's, taken friends there and have always enjoyed the friendly staff, fresh Greek specialities and speedy delivery to our table. The establishment is simple and clean, perhaps not a "Greek Taverna" but its not meant to be. Keep it coming!

This place is run by a very friendly family, has delicious food and is reasonably priced. That's a winner in my books. I love the chicken souvlaki wrap. Perfect every time. If I lived in Sidney, I would be a fixture there no doubt.

This is a a great family run place. We Love the Caesar come Greek Salad. A nice change from the norm. We have tried several dishes and have never been disappointed. We will dine here again.

When we don't feel like cooking dinner, Maria's is often our spot. The food is fresh, tasty and the kids love it! We tend to enjoy the calamari, one of the many souvlakis, or a falafel and of course greek salads all around. It's a casual atmosphere (you order similar to a cafeteria) so you don't have to be overly... More

Does the subject line (Quick and enjoyable lunch for family of 8??) Really exist? Today it did. Don't get confused with the quick part. I just mean we were on a schedule and we're able to enjoy a great meal and not miss our next appointment. The food tasted very fresh, with a sense of being made with great passion.... More

After reading numerous positive reviews, we felt we needed to give this a try. We were at best disappointed. Food was slow in being delivered after ordering and the restaurant seemed to sell more fried food than true Greek food. It seemed more like a fast food restaurant and catered to that type of clientele .

Always constantly good food. Lunch or dinner hot and fresh. Good service from the family run business. This business has been a staple place to go for many years.
