Located just off Chinatown on Pitt street, Diethnes is an absolute must for lovers of home style food and old school service. The decor is a mishmash of Greek style decoration and we absolutely love it. Service is always exceptional and reminds me of eating out when I was a child. The waiters are brilliant, loads of fun and serious... More

I went here for a work dinner and the service was friendly but the food wasn't as good as I've had elsewhere. We were a group of about 20 or more and there was space in the restaurant so I think they should have been able to cope with our numbers. Décor was ok, and I don't know about the... More

My husband and I took our two sons here for dinner to celebrate our oldest son's 21st. It was our first dining experience at Diethnes and it did not disappoint. The food was delicious and plentiful. We ordered the Dinner Banquet # 2 and despite being big eaters, had trouble finishing everything that was served. The food was delicious, freshly... More

I was in Sydney for work and took a work mate for dinner late on a Tuesday. Not a lot of restaurants are open on Tuesdays, and we got to the restaurant approximately 8:15pm. Apparently this restaurant is the oldest Greek restaurant in Sydney, tucked away downstairs on Pitt St in town. Very glad it was open. There were quite... More

Attended on the evening of 6 May with my wife for her birthday. Seated promptly and our waiter for the Evening Thannos, explained some food selections etc, and left us to peruse the menues. A wonderful experience with culinary delights, good wine, great ambiance and attending but not intrusive service. This is the third time I have been to Diethnes,... More

It's been a few years but nothing changed here. Good Greek food reasonable prices friendly Greek staff what else do you need? The dips were great then some octopus ( yum) halumi grilled cheese and amazing desert. Easy to find in Pitt St just follow the Greek music ...

Booked dinner with a group of friends and ordered the banquet - again this place takes a lot to beat for ambiance, freindliness and good Greek food !! It had been a while since my previous visit and I again, was not dissapointed. We all (6) had a lovely time and the wait staff were great and so professional. Food... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
