About Kalimera Souvlaki Art

When made properly, souvlaki is a thing to be admired and few follow this practice as well as Kalimera Souvlaki Art, an Oakleigh eatery that has patrons lining up from near and far. Running the length of the restaurant, the open kitchen is where the focus lies in this vibrant cafe; an upbeat ambience is partnered by colourful shutters plastered to the back wall, silver buckets of herbs and a selection of sepia-toned photos adorning the exposed brick wall. Preserving the taste from the motherland, Greek owner and operator Thomas Deliopoulos is adamant that fresh is best, dishing out tasty gyros options of lamb, chicken and pork; while succulent skewered meat can be teamed with a Cretan salad of barley rusks, feta, tomato, olives, oregano, capers, virgin olive oil, chips and pita bread.
