The venue looks impressive enough with white table cloth and very sanitized decor. Very few tables were occupied on a Thurs nite. We were a table of 10 and so we ordered the banquet. It was priced quite reasonable but the food was so average....More

I have been going to Athenian Greek Restaurant for many years now with both family and friends. The food is consistently good and you never leave there hungry. I would highly recommend this restaurant. Also well located in the Sydney CBD.

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
