Delicious and authentic Greek food at Nostos in Leichhardt
Greek food has to be one of the best cuisines in the world. Its unique play on fresh vegetables, cooked meats and aromatic spices makes it stand out from all other cuisines. And for those who don't want to travel all the way to Greece to experience their mouth watering food, Nostos brings a little part of Greece to you, right here in Sydney.
Nostos is the Greek word for coming home and this traditional Greek restaurant situated in Leichhardt will transport you to Greece with it tavern style décor and relaxed yet festive ambiance.They have seating on a bottom and top level as well as a beautiful outdoor courtyard, all decorated with beautiful Greek knick-knacks.
Nostos is favourite with my husband and I and the food has constantly been fantastic. Every mouthful is pure bliss. The staff is extremely warm and friendly and the service is top notch. We have tried a number of dishes on their menu and we have never been disappointed. Every dish has a unique taste and has always been prepared to perfection. Portion sizes here do not leave one hungry and the complimentary bread with garlic olive oil makes a great accompaniment to their food. They have a huge variety of entrees, but our favourite has to be the Mushrooms, pan fried in a garlic, chive and lemon butter sauce. From the mains, I would absolutely vouch for the Yemista which is tomatoes stuffed with rice, asparagus, baby eggplant, grey zucchini, mushrooms and pine nuts topped with kaseri cheese.
To have the best experience at Nostos, I would recommend coming here on a Friday or Saturday night where you can enjoy your meal with some fantastic LIVE Greek music. But be sure to make a reservation before hand or you may find yourself waiting for a table for hours. Their Menu is quite extensive and also have quite a few vegetarian and gluten free options.
So next time you are looking for a new restaurant to try, make a reservation at this Mediterranean gem and I am sure you will not be disappointed.
