Went with a party of four & chose the $45 banquet which gave us the option to try a good selection of dishes. The food was excellent from start to finish, salad was very fresh, bread & dips tasty, calamari cooked to perfection & the slow cooked lamb was absolutely delicious. Plenty of food & we were very full but... More

We visited Newtown last night to see a comedy performance and afterwards went for a walk to find somewhere for dinner. We stumbled across Steki Taverna by accident; it was down a lane way off the main street. When we opened the door it was a cosy, dimly lit, lively restaurant. We asked for a table for two and the...

Went here for a friend's birthday. Numbers were limited, as the venue was at capacity. I'd say maybe 80 people in total. We had the $50 banquet, which was the most expensive of the banquet options. Food was nice, though the chicken souvlaki seemed less than 100% fresh, and the marinated octopus was a touch overcooked. Staff were fine, though... More

Went with a group of 10. Had a great time. Authentic food. Great service. Great atmosphere. Only criticism was that the men bathroom was revolting.

Had our annual Christmas catch-up of old mates at Steki last night. Opted for the premium banquet and what a feast! Everything was fresh and delicious, each subsequent dish presented with perfect timing by our friendly and attentive waitress. A great night was then capped off with complimentary desserts and dessert wine. It had been many years since any of... More

In July the family spent two weeks in Greece, in Corfu and Crete in addition to the odd day or so in Athens. Months later, for a birthday, we trawled through Sydney restaurants to find a menu that at least approximated the menus of the tavernas where we had eaten every night while in Greece So glad we choose Steki...

Listen, the food wasn't too bad, but it definitely wasn't excellent. This place needs a bit of a revamp, it's old and dated and not in a good way. I love how they keep the authentic theme with the dining but it's far between what the potential is. The best thing I ate was the house greek salad. I won't... More

We arrived to a warm welcome on a rainy Sunday night recently. When the orders were taken, the waitress was distracted and had to have orders repeated constantly. As it turns out, one of our entrees didn't arrive and had to be requested. The entrees were excellent, delicious and appreciated by everyone. Now to the mains: the Lamb Souvlaki although... More
