Zeus Street Greek, Sydney

When Zeus Street Greek opened in Drummoyne it caused quite the buzz. I can recall countless Instagram posts and check-ins by satisfied patrons. When a place is so heavily talked about and documented on social network it’s hard to resist a visit – and the photos of the food looked delicious.

I met Lex one Friday after work and we waited a while before snagging a shared table in the bustling joint. Fun fact: the other couple we shared a table with just so happened to be a work colleague of mine!

Since our visit to Zeus there have been a few more establishments that have popped up around town, proving how popular it has become.

Locations:

  • Drummoyne
  • Kotara
  • Cronulla
  • Dulwich Hill
  • Roseberry

 The idea of Zeus is to create and serve fresh dishes that derive from time-old methods of cooking and family recipes, whilst creating a family vibe in their restaurants. I think they manage to accomplish that philosophy with their welcoming staff and lively atmosphere. The dishes are served hot and fresh in a timely manner.

 What we ordered:

 Lex and I ordered the ‘Uncle Tzimmy Classic’, which comes in both a pork or chicken variety. I think for first timers to Zeus this is the most obvious option on the menu. If we were to go back I would be a little wilder with my choice perhaps! The ‘Uncle Tzimmy Classic’ is a pita with pork or chicken, tzatziki, onion and paprika – all very definitively Greek flavours and ingredients. The wrap was full of flavour and gave a sophisticated element to ‘street food’. The portion was also generous. It is also affordable too – at just $10.50, making Zeus the perfect spot for a quick but delicious meal. The best bit about this dish however was the chips. I should have mentioned earlier than I liken myself to a ‘Hot chip connoisseur’ – they really are my guilty pleasure and as soon as I see a bowl carried past me by a waiter in a restaurant I simply can’t help but order them. There are two variety of chips at Zeus – the standard chips as I call them, and the extraordinary – Feta and Oregano chips. These really are a must, and I’d go back to Zeus and just order three bowls of these next time! You can also order alcoholic beverages as they are fully licensed. This adds more of a restaurant vibe to the establishment. You can also take-away and order online if you didn’t feel like dining in.

 Whilst definitely not a ‘special occasion’ restaurant, Zeus Street Greek is a fun, casual place that I think is perfect for a quick meal and unwind after work. It is a busy place so do allocate some wait time.
