Poor service, staff looked like they didn't want to be there. No value for money. The decor is outdated, standing around in the doorway bunched up with only 6 others waiting to pick up their lunch it felt like Sloppy Joe's out of the 70's....More

Joined TripAdvisor to put my 2c in after the shock of reading some of these reviews! Live close to this place and I have to say they have some of the best damn gyros in Melbourne. The pita is thick, fluffy and freekin awesome. Not...More

The decor is out of the eighties and the service is friendly and the meat and ingredients are all tasty and what you want in a souvlaki. Given their surroundings it's a reliable place to go when you need a feed

Best souvlaki I've ever had. Great little find in King St. Fast friendly service. Just around the corner from our accomodation. We came here twice as once wasn't enough!

King Jon's is a late-night operation on the north end of the strip club sector in Melbourne's CBD. Normally, that would flash a "no-go" warning, unless you're drunk and dissolute at 2 a.m. I was sober but out of time-synch after flying back from a...More

This is what a great lamb souvlaki sandwich looks and tastes like. Stuffed full of tasty spit-roasted lamb. My favorite souvlaki sandwich. I miss this about Melbourne, because elsewhere Eastern Australia (Sydney, Brisbane) is dominated by Turkish kebab sandwiches. While kebabs and souvlaki's are similar,...More

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
