Stalactites is not your average Souvlaki take-away joint.

People Queue outside Stalactites for a meal after a show nearby had finished.

Open 24 hours, the ever-popular Stalactites serves traditional Greek cuisine.

Melbourne has the largest number of Greek-speaking people outside of Greece. It is where the language, culture and people mix to become a part of this patchwork nation of cultures; Australia. No wonder the food tastes so good here.

In 1984, Thessaloniki became Melbourne's sister city.
