    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.

    Tsindos Greek Restaurant is a Melbourne institution for a reason. It's a place where food, service, and ambience come together to create an unforgettable dining experience. Whether you're a lover of Greek cuisine or just looking for a delightful meal in a cozy setting, Tsindos Greek Restaurant delivers on all fronts. A perfect 10 out of 10 and a must-visit for anyone in Melbourne.

    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.

    A pleasing surprise! Getting the bang on the buck to explore different Greek dishes. Greek drinks were delicious, too. Definitely a memorable dining experience.

    Food divine. Great service. Authentic and really really nice people. Dinner for 6 with drinks and full stomachs, result = empty plates + good value...

    This was a last minute decision to go Greek - a group of 7 from regional Vic where genuine, good quality Greek food is a rarity so we were delighted with our choice. Excellent feeling in the restaurant, great food and well priced.

    That the owner Mr. Tsindos personally attended to us speaks volumes of the excellent service, food and ambience. A repeat visit will certainly follow.

    Tsindos is one of my favourite restaurants for meeting up with friends, and enjoying great Greek cuisine. Always reliable and the service is ever welcoming. The menu has all the favourites and the Daily Specials board highlights the chef's delicious and unique dishes. It's always such a pleasure to visit here.

    I have been to Tsindos many times over the years and I have never been disappointed. The food is delicious and has a homely feel to it. The staff's service is second to none. Definitely one of my favourite Greek restaurants.

    Staff were fabulous, so lovely and attentive. My husband had the "Combination" which he highly recommended, my son had the Cutlets, that has 4 cutlets, only half potato and a tiny side salad (he was hungry and ended up ordering the trio of dips with pita bread afterward). I had the "amazing" mixed meat grill for one, which was underwhelming and quite hard, chewy and way too salty. I have been to Tsindos before and had the banquet which is BEAUTIFUL. Will go back again, and get that next time. Overall though a lovely time.

    I have been eating at Tsindos for over 15 years, first introducing my 3 year old then over the years various friends whenever we’ve been in Melbourne. This time, another group were introduced to this amazing place and they were certainly impressed and vow to go back. The food was amazing, the service out of this world and the beautiful Georgie was as attentive and knowledgeable as ever. If you haven’t been, do yourself a favour and make a booking!

    We had the banquet menu and it was absolutely phenomenal! Seafood cooked perfectly, the most delicious coating on the calamari and the saganaki was to die for! Highly recommended for everything from a family dinner to a corporate event!
