Great chips with fetta on top. The only problem is the wait. It is always very busy and they need to implement the buzzer things so you can go and sit down and then it alerts you when your order is ready. We go to...More

I actually tried this at Chadstone Shopping Centre. It is a great bite, all wrapped up in its Greek flat bread. The beef one I had was scrumptious. Bring it to NZ George. The pickles were just right and it definitely had a fresh taste.

A top pick for your food court food needs, we have been to the restaurant venue and this was just as good, the food tastes fresh and comes out fast. There is usually a line but it moves fast

Beautiful example of delicious Greek Street Food. Owned by George Columbaris. Can get quite busy & servings are on the smaller side (as it is in Greece). Saganaki soldiers & chips are soooo yummy

We did not like it at all. The meat tastes like its been steamed and has a jelly like texture. A bit of steamed meat and soggy chips, a bit of a rip off for the price. We felt sick towards the end of the...More

We grabbed a couple of souvlakis whilst in the Emporium and couldn't have been more disappointed, we waited a good 15 mins and paid about $12 each for three bits of meat and two chips on each one. Take your $12 and visit one of...More

The service was very slow but once at the counter the guy who took my order was very friendly and polite. Waited a while for my order (a Mr Papadopoulos) but didn't mind that so much as they were very busy but overall I was...More

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
