About Us

Established in 1970, with a warm family atmosphere serving Traditional Greek Cuisine

Destination Greece: There’s plenty of good food to be found on Lonsdale Street in Melbourne, and Tsindos Greek Restaurant is no exception.

Tsindos has been serving traditional Greek food for decades. The laid back atmosphere of Tsindos makes it the perfect place to catch up with friends over a bottle of Greek wine. If you order the banquet, make sure you bring your A-game.

The Banquets are huge – a lot of food. A lot! Traditional inclusions such as mixed dips, saganaki, grilled octopus, dolmades, whitebait, Greek salad, a seafood platter, meat platter, dessert and coffee or tea. For those slightly less ambitious, order one of the traditional chargrilled meats like the lamb souvlaki.

There are seafood options and a tempting array of salads to start with, plus all the appetisers you’d expect in a traditional Greek joint: halloumi, grilled artichoke and feta, fried zucchini and more. So many great options… How will you choose? A must-try: our marinated lamb cutlets.

Open 7 nights for dinner and Monday to Friday for Lunch.

Call (03) 9663 3194 to book your table!
