Zeus Street Greek, Drummoyne, Sydney

Zeus Street Greek is a newish eatery opened in Drummoyne offering diners delicious greek food. The restaurant is casual albeit small but with a very relaxed setting. There’s a no reservation policy so come early if you want to beat the dinner rush. The restaurant was packed when we arrived just after 7pm and after a good 35 minute wait (there were 6 of us) we were finally seated and quickly ordered our food as we were famished.

The menu is quite simple – souvla pitas, nude pitas, salad, dips and sides and everything sounded delicious. There is also a kids menu which is just as good.

We started with some house-made pita (2) (AUD 3.0) and two serving of tzatziki – greek yogurt, cucumber, roasted garlic and dill (AUD6.5) – my favourite. The tzatziki was fresh, refreshing and incredibly delicious that I wanted to lick the bowl. I love the house-made pita – it was so soft and fluffy that even Dragon couldn’t help but eat half on her own (maybe more)!

The lightly fried calamari and preserved lemon mayo (AUD12.50) was also a hit. The calamari was lightly coated, giving it a nice crunch and the lemon mayo was a wonderful addition.

From the souvla – pitas, we ordered the zeus – lamb – signature slow cooked lamb with Aegan slaw, smoked eggplant, onion and parsley. I am not a huge fan of lamb but both my parents really enjoyed it. Generous amount of lamb meat which was tender and the Aegan slaw a wonderful complement.

The papou niko – char-grilled pork from the souvla with Aegan slaw, caramelised onion, preserved lemon mayo and parsley was a favourite. The pork was tender, and who can say no to caramelised onion and lemon mayo?

Uncle ‘Tzimmy’ classic – choice of lamb, pork, or chicken with tomato, tzatziki, onion, paprika and chips was a hit. My brother, F, ordered the lamb and he absolutely loved it!

For Dragon, chicken and chips with lemon mayo wrapped in pita. The chicken was tender but she didn’t quite particularly like the lemon mayo. She absolutely loved the chips though.

We noticed everyone had a serve of the feta and oregano chips (AUD6.50) – this was good. Fries with feta – definitely a winner for everyone.

Unfortunately we were all very full for dessert but I did like the sound of the greek doughnuts! Service was quick and efficient, it does get busy so come early or later in the evening. Food was delicious and would be more than happy to go back for more of the house-made pita breads. YUM!
