    We met with old friends from overseas at Tsindos Greek Restaurant to have a good meal and a chance to reconnect. The venue was perfect, the food was good (even for our fussy eating friend) and the staff were attentive. Thanks for a good night

    Food and food service were fantastic as always. Our booking service was an issue this time regarding our request for a seat next to window down stairs. We offered seats that had not been reserved. After explaining about our booking and further checks the manager found our name and offered us the seat as requested which had a reserved sign on it. We always enjoy this restaurant and will be back.

    My husband and I and two friends were disappointed to have to leave the restaurant after a glass of wine because we were too cramped and the noise level deafening. I was a Friday night. I was very sad . I had looked forward to being at this iconic restaurant again regards Chris

    A great and tasty meal. We opted for individual dishes and also envied other meals being drlivered to other tables. Such a varied menu. Out waitress was exceptional and switched on. We will be back. Only slight hiccup was appetiser arriving shortly after main course being served.

    Had such a lovely dinner here at this family owned restaurant with my parents. My mum has been raving since about how this was the best Greek food she’s ever had. Between 4 of us we had: appetizer board, Tsindos fetta special, grilled octopus, king prawns and meat platter for 2. All delicious and the perfect amount of food for us 4. Service was also excellent. The waitress in particular was so knowledgeable - about the food, drinks and Greek history. Highly recommend

    Given the other reviews, I was pleasantly surprised that the service our group of 7 had at a table upstairs was very attentive and efficient. The food we got was good, especially the crusty bread & tapenade and the banquet combination. I was surprised, though: this is the first traditional Greek restaurant I think I've ever been to that didn't have spanakopita on the menu and there weren't really any full-size vegetarian entrees. The main mezze plates that were vegetarian were both deep-fried.

    A small 60th birthday celebration with family. We don’t live in VICTORIA but seized the opportunity to be here for a special birthday celebration at Tsindos. The food was as great as ever and the service matched it. A great night out. Thank you Tsindos and in particular our waiter - he was extremely attentive, warm and welcoming ????????????????????

    The food was delicious, the service was great, and the atmosphere was convivial - just what you’d expect in a small, friendly, Greek restaurant.

    A bit expensive for what you get, but the ambience and service is wonderful. Overall food quality and taste is great.

    We booked a table for 6 people (upstairs) as we had been before. I add we booked it 3 weeks ago. When we arrived we we were shown to a table set for 4 people (downstairs) and were expected to fit around it, 6 people. We were simply disappointed at their lack of concern for our evening together. We had no room to put plates, drinks etc. When I questioned the manager he had no concerns about it all.????Very disappointing????

    We had a large group with fluctuating numbers in the lead-up, Tsindos was always flexible and prepared. Everyone enjoyed the dishes and there was definitely plenty of food, Drinks service was prompt and our group had a great night.

About the restaurant

Destination Greece There's plenty of good food to be found on Lonsdale Street in Melbourne, and Tsindos Greek Restaurant is no exception. Tsindos serves traditional Greek food, just like they've been doing for decades. The atmosphere here is laid back, the kind of place to bring a few friends for a catch-up over a bottle of Greek wine. There's often live music, and you just might feel inclined to dance off that dinner. If you order the banquet, make sure you bring you're A-game. It's a lot of food. A lot! “Banquet 2” includes mixed dips, saganaki, grilled octopus, dolmades, whitebait, Greek salad, a seafood platter, meat platter, dessert and coffee or tea. For those slightly less ambitious, order one of the traditional chargrilled meats like the lamb souvlaki. There are seafood options and a tempting array of salads to start with, plus all the appetisers you'd expect in a traditional Greek joint: haloumi, grilled artichoke and feta, fried zucchini and more. So many good options… How will you choose? Best dish: Marinated lamb cutlets
