I have been here a few times. Excellent service and great food. The lamb shoulder is a house specialty and shouldn’t be missed. Reliably good food and value for money.

The staff were amazing and the food exceeded all expectations. The saganaki with prawns was exceptional and the souvlaki did not disappoint!

It was a nice greek restaurant. Didn't have the main traditional Greek food that I expected. A little bit overpriced for their souvlaki plate. Their grilled octopus was a bit chew but good flavour. Would come again to try other dishes. Service was friendly

Perhaps I may give 9/10 if this is an option. For food, I have seen better. I was somewhat confused if it were traditional Greek food or a 'fusion'. For service, it was typical of its category. Ambience is perhaps limited by its floor design,...More

Very disappointed as this Greek restaurant has lost its direction: Had a mousaka with an Italian sauce; had a souvlaki with all spice. That is not Greek! Whilst eating staff were lifting tables and chairs away. Girls behind large counter were rude and not welcoming....More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens

Certainly not a speciality but then as the previous comment says that's just not a Greek speciality. This is traditional Greek and man it is good. I'm sure the lads would accommodate a request though
