It wasn't a very busy night when I was there. Friendly prompt service. Good solid Greek cuisine. It is a bit of a cavern of a restaurant.

Love this place. Go there quite a bit with work colleagues and it's always busy. In saying that though, the service is always great and the food is even better. Never had a bad meal at this place, highly recommended.

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
