Great Greek food in Ormond

With electric blue tint and warm oak hues visible from inside as you walk on by, Jimmy Grant's puts forward a very 'neo-retro' feel to it, that's an affectionate homage to the bygones eras of diners and drive-in cinemas. Yet, while the decor may be deliberately fun and cheeky, make no mistake: this is a restaurant with much substance. The detailing across the wall 'There's a little bit of Jimmy in everyone' may seem humorous at first - but actually is a giveaway of something deeper about this restaurant. The second clue is the name itself, when said slow Jimmy Grants sounds just like immigrants. That is deliberate.

This restaurant has a famous owner in George Calombaris and locations elsewhere; some may be deterred by this. Yet, this is a restaurant - and franchise - that pays tribute to Australia's great immigrant tradition both its its decor and across its menu.

Whatever your background, this is something that makes for a compelling undercurrent; and if not for that: is a great place to get some quality Slouvaki.

True this part of town has no shortage of places to eat like Thai Ormond or Sip N' Bite Kebabs that may catch your eye. May this review affirm - that as distinct from needing to chose between the new and old favourites - Jimmy Grant's is another excellent stop on the Ormond strip, and well worth a try if yet to visit and keen to add some great Greek food into your regular takeout rotation.

Your Comment
Well I bought food from jimmys today on dec the 28th and the chips were lovely with a little bit of feta chese and a sprinkling of oregano and salt the Greek salad was nice but shoululd be a little fresher . Made to order not made the day before or on the morning it was slightly sloppy. But the blue grenadeer was dry and a little tough the batter was burned. I would try their other food which sounds great on the menu. But don't expect the staff to know what's on the menu at this time they are all training on the job. But that's fine because everyone has to learn. But I'll give it another go for sure.
