Xenia Food Store
The food was great , the staff well informed and very pleasant.
Will be back
We enjoyed the vegan option - although we are not vegan. Plenty of food for two at a reasonably priced $30. Each.
We attended on a horrible rainy night to celebrate a birthday. Unfortunately we were disappointed with the food on the night. The saganaki was not overly hot and as a result was chewy, the moussaka was likewise only luke warm which was incredibly disappointing. Good service and ambience. Maybe we went there on a bad night.....
Food was amazing! Highly recommend the banquet. All dishes were delicious and servings plentiful. We went for lunch so the restaurant was a little quieter but overall a lovely experience.
Amazing vegan feast! Incredibly generous & authentic fare full of delicious flavours
Food was lovely and fantastic value, my entire family were really impressed by the quality of food.
My only point was that the menu advertises YAY vegan feta and an alternative brand was used on Sunday that was good but not as pleasant. Not sure if this was done due to my Walnut allergy but YAY feta contained almonds. But otherwise amazing lunch.
I loved the vegan banquet option! It was so filling and satisfying and tasty and wholesome, I hope it’s kept on the menu permanently.
Lovely food, beautiful service and lots of vegan and gluten free options.
Exceptionally good food & service! Great value for money!
Had a great time, great service and the food was delicious.
Would highly recommend.
We always enjoy a night at Xenia Food Store. The staff are always so welcoming and friendly, the space casual and relaxed, and the food the perfect balance of traditional Greek with a contemporary bent. It's always great if we allow room for a dessert, although with the generous serves, this is often a challenge!
The food was yummy and definitely of good value. Waitresses were attentive.
Lovely, genuine staff. Comfortable atmosphere. Beautiful, nourishing food that is excellent value for money. Thank you for catering to vegans!
Great food, great service, very helpful and understanding staff. Made a reservation for a party of 10 for my fiancee's birthday. Staff were very gracious and helpful with the cake. We also had two people from the party leave (a couple and one partner started feeling sick) and the staff simply cancelled their meals and did not charge me--this was very much appreciated.
Thank you to the staff at Xenia!
The Vegan Banquet was amazing! Such great value for money and the service was fantastic!
The host seemed annoyed that she had customers. She put the food and bill down on the table like she was a tired, annoyed mum and we’d been playing up all day. It was uncomfortable.
The food wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t good. They made the Cypriot salad boring - which is hard to do.
The ‘crunchy fat potatoes’ that I was so excited about were neither crunchy nor fat. They were actually badly roasted and covered in so much lemon zest (or something similar?) that I didn’t want to eat them. Also I just don’t understand why you’d lie like that on a menu.
The bill was only $30 each, which was actually pretty fairly priced when you balance the quality and quantity of food - but we would be happier with less food that was actually good.
The best meal that we have had at a Greek restaurant in a long time. We selected a variety of options from the menu and couldn’t fault any of the food. It was delicious. What we couldn’t eat, we took home in a container supplied by the restaurant.
The service was quick and the waiter and waitresses were polite and efficient.
The tables were spaced out and we never felt cramped.
We will be back!
Great food with care and attention paid to delicate flavour matching. Reasonable prices considering quality. Excellent vegan options.
Delicious food with great options for both vegans and meat lovers.
The food was good but service but great. We had the vegan banquet. The waitress never explained any of the food we received. We had to guess what it was. The time between courses was so long we got up to pay to be told s dessert was coming. As the waitress had not explained nthe menu we didn't know if we would receive a dessert. The food was good but service not. Overall I am not sure it I would recommend to a friend.
Fresh tasty Greek food. Pleasant ambience and friendly staff. Have been for both lunch and dinner. Will definitely be going again.
Very basic, with very little atmosphere.
All dishes apart from the slow cooked lamb was tasty.
Lamb was too dry.
Delicious food and great service. We went for dinner and had lots of things to share. While the menu is not as unique and seasonal as its sister restaurant, Philhellene, it's still exceptional by doing what it offers very well. Convenient location and sumptuous starters, mains and desserts.
Excellent food, relaxed and enjoyable. Leave room for dessert...really nice!
Great find, delicious Greek food. Recommend to all for an authentic taste of the Mediterranean, the special of the night broadbeans and artichokes were amazing with fresh crusty bread. Get in there before everyone finds out about this place.
We had the vegan banquet and all the food was filling and delicious. Our 3 year old companion really enjoyed their chips too.
Great homely greek food that is cooked and served perfectly...could eat all day everyday!!
The vegan banquet is absolutely amazing! I cannot recommend more! I have been there a few times and it's always great and the staff are always lovely.
The food was great and i couldn't fault any of what we ordered. The servicing size was quite generous, after the Meze plate for 2 - we struggled with the mains. For the Meze, the dips were great, the koupes was tasty. Then came the mains - the calamri was fresh, tenter and tasty; the traditional mousaka was mouth watering, but the leg of lamb was a bit boring - It's tender and all, but I was expecting something a bit more rustic - the warm broad bean was good, but the dish needs something more uplifting rather than roasted potatoes.
The service could have been better - when we arrived, we were shown to the table, and that's it. No menu, no drinks offered, we had to help ourselves to the menus and wave to get our foods ordered. Yes it's a Sat night, but a little bit more attentive will leave a good impression, plus at the time, the restaurant wasn't that busy.
The $30 vegan banquet was exceptional value. The portions were generous and all of the dishes were fresh and tasty. Delicious authentic Greek flavors. Staff were very friendly and helpful and the service was exceptional. Will definitely back!
Service good, food fresh and very tasty. Just noisy
The vegan banquet was sensational - so much food, and tasty quality food!
Had a ball plenty of food too much alcohol! Catching up with friends after a long time we were welcomed by the best quality food and friendliest staff. Do yourselves a favour and get the banquet.
Amazing! Go on a Tuesday or Wednesday for the best value feed in Melbourne! My mouth is watering thinking about those 3 courses.
My partner and I pushed ourselves to finish mostly everything but couldn't, then the staff were happy to give us an ecofriendly takeaway container! Most authentic Greek I've tasted, service was in classic Greek style (great vibe, hospitable and clean). The waitress with the dark curly hair deserves a pay rise! She went above and beyond. Will definitely be going again, the only thing I wish is that the chefs could make me those dolmades every day....yum.
Lovely staff, AMAZING vegan feta - so good. The meal was good and tasty, the falafel was not the best though. Overall a good feed. It was freezing inside though so we did not take off our jackets or bennies. The service was lovely and friendly but very slow and we had to wait at least 15-20 minutes in between each dish which was just too long. But a great affordable vegan feast.
So good! We had the vegan banquet and not only was the food amazing, it was also great value — we were so deliciously full by the end of the night. Servers were nice and attentive too.
