Had a lovely meal at this restaurant with some girlfriends. We shared an array of dishes which tasted amazing. A very simple and unpretentious family run restaurant. The baklava was to die for. A must!

We headed here on the recommendation of a friend. The same owners have had it for many years and the restaurant has a comfortable feel to it. Our food order spanned seafood, meat and vegetables - and all were delicious (especially the Cypriot potato entree)....More

We love Greek food, having lived in Greece for several years. Tsindos is Greek Cypriot which should be just a good but it was awful. We ordered Seafood Saganaki to start with; the prawns hadn't been cleaned. Then we spotted a cockroach (I'm not joking!)....More

Unpretentious, clean and welcoming resto serving delicious Greek dishes at very reasonable (for Melbourne) prices. We all had the moussaka which was ample enough to provide us with another meal. Our server kindly put our food in takeaway containers.

Thoroughly enjoyed another hearty meal at Tsindos Restaurant. Generous main course serves and very tasty wholesome food. Wine list is not long but adequate. All up, a pleasant dining experience which didn't disappoint any of the group.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
