Kalimera Souvlaki ArtRestaurants Oakleigh

Kalimera Souvlaki Art


Welcome to Kalimera Souvlaki Art

Handmade Souvlaki using the leanest meats, most refined olive oil, locally produced salads and authentic ingredients from Greece.

What we do & why we do it.

The only way to transmit the voice of truth to someone is to have heard it yourself and let this truth become part of your life. Thomas Deliopoulos listened to this voice from a loving couple of deaf-mute, who happened to be his parents. Their physical disability, instead of a curse, turned into a blessing as they developed an extraordinary bond with the land and the cattle.

Raised by an agricultural family, which was also involved in stock-breeding, young Thomas realized from his early childhood the gift of being in contact with mother nature. He learned how to collect, in full respect, the best of the products it had to offer. Young Thomas very soon developed a passion for cooking; it was something more than a simple hobby. He learnt from his family background the importance of selecting the best raw materials and that authentic good taste lies in simplicity and excellent quality…this often beats sophistication which sometimes covers taste instead of enhancing it

From humble beginnings.

At the age of 17, he joined the army, where he was chosen as a cook. He serviced for 16 years in officers’ clubs, based in Greece and overseas, in NATO. At the same time, he worked in the free market, collaborating with restaurants, bars etc. He reached one point when he felt that this circle was over and that it was about time to quit the army; it had never been a field of expression for him anyway.

But every end leads to a new beginning. Tom decided to take the next big step. A real challenge was His wife and son are Australian citizens, so the whole family moved to Melbourne for a brand new start. Once settled, they realized that despite the numerous souvlaki restaurants, something was missing. One with authentic taste, AUTHENTIC is for Thomas the keyword for tasty cooking (Authentic is the keyword for almost everything)

Making a difference through Souvlaki Art.

So they decided to make it happen. With hard work, inspiration and the desire to share all that Thomas had learnt throughout his valuable experience

Thus, in the very heart of the greek community in Oakleigh, SOUVLAKI ART made the difference…. A unique combination of both traditional and progressive, where the best, carefully selected meat and quality fresh vegetables with just the right spice are wrapped in delicious pitta

Just Italy



In 2015 Tonino Amadio, who hails from Le Marche, a region in Italy that hugs the Adriatic Sea, created Just Italy. A small Italian pasta shop nestled in the heart of Oakleigh. The philosophy was very simple; to offer authentic Italian food, house-made products and uncompromising hospitality.

Three years later, Tonino met Sam Colosimo. A general conversation about business and their love of Italian food commenced, as did a new chapter at Just Italy as Sam joined the business. 

Although the business continues to grow with new locations opening around Melbourne, Tonino and Sam’s core value remains the same; re-creating Italy in Australia. It’s about no-frills, good, authentic food…just like Nonna’s.

Lazy MoesRestaurants Oakleigh

Lazy Moes


Those of you who have been on another planet may even know me as “Joe” for a while. Well, I have a news flash. I am now Moe! For everyone else that’s just dying to know how I went from Joe to Moe, here is a short story about how Lazy Moe’s all began starting even further back before Joe or Moe existed.

I am the creation of a gentleman by the name of Michael Guida. Michael was born in 1967 and ironically did not have a lazy bone in his body. He was a hard-working young man who started his first business in a panel shop called M n N Panel Works in East Keilor in 1984.

Michael’s business ventures went from spraying cars to serving pizza and pasta in the food industry and opening up Leo’s Dial a Pizza in Tullamarine in 1986. After opening up Leo’s, Michael and his wife Lucy had decided to go from suburb to suburb opening new and different pizza and pasta shops. So just in case you’re wondering, Moe has most likely been in your suburb, only he was in disguise. Soon after Leo’s Dial a pizza, Michael tried another business called Pasta by Florentine, which opened up in Tullamarine in 1989. Three years later, in 1993, Michael and Lucy moved a few suburbs down to Broadmeadows and opened up the first of many businesses to be in one building, Spag’s Pizza and Pasta. In 1995 Michael and Lucy were up for another change. Carlito’s Pizza and Pasta in North Balwyn were opened, and there they lived on top of the pizza shop. You see, Michael and Lucy’s lifestyle revolved around their thirst for success and passion for working. The living arrangement where just apart of the experience.

It had come to a point in Michael’s Business ventures that he decided to move back to Tullamarine and step into another side of hospitality. A side that was just a little dirtier… Yes, you have heard it all. While Lucy took a break to raise their two children, Michael decided he was going to clean some of Melbourne’s grubby kitchens after a very busy day cooking! At all hours of the morning, Michael would hop into his van, and off he would go to sanitise, sterilise and get rid of all kinds of kitchen grime he could find! In 1996 after cleaning kitchens for not very long, Michael had come to a conclusion. This was not for him. So off he went, back into the same shop that was originally called Spag’s. This was where he opened up another pizza shop called Woggie’s Pizza and, not too long after, Carlito’s Pizza.

Sometime in 1997, Michael had reached the stage where he was over owning a business and decided for the first time in his life that he would go job hunting! Well, I’ll leave it as short as this. There was no way that Michael was going to be told how to make a pizza, and he certainly wasn’t going to tolerate being told he wasn’t good enough for the job! So low and behold, in 1998, Michael opened up Smoken Joe’s Café Moonee Ponds. That day, something Melbourne knows and grew to love was founded. The biggest meals and best fun-loving service in town were introduced to the hospitality industry! Michael had found his feet and opened up Cousin Joe’s two doors down. Not long after, in 2000, it was time to say goodbye to Smoken Joe’s and Cousin Joe’s. However, it was time for Michael and Lucy to say HELLO to Melbourne and expand their idea of big meals and fun-loving services. So in 2003, Michael and Lucy decided that “Joe” would become a rather Lazy fellow called “Moe”, and here Lazy Moe is to stay. For now, you can find Moe in Tullamarine, Maribyrnong, Oakleigh, Bendigo, Caroline springs, melton, Ballarat, and Moe could be in your suburb very soon!

There is one philosophy I’d like to leave you with… “Lazy Moe’s is about an empire built with a thirst for success and a love for people and food. We are a team of hard-working colleagues that are like a family, and we want to share our inspiration with you, and that is… “LET EM EAT!!”

5 Tricks for Ordering Online Food Delivery

As technology continues to integrate into our everyday activities, businesses have found more ways to make our lives as consumers easier. One such growing trend is food delivery. It’s become common to order food online and have it delivered instead of going into a restaurant and sitting down for a traditional meal.

This growth is mostly driven by millennials and younger generations, relying on apps and gig economy services. 

Getting food delivered is easier than ever, thanks to third-party ordering systems and apps like Menufy. Below are some of our best tips to ensure you have the best experience possible when ordering food.

Order Food Online Early so It’s Ready When You Get Home

Many people use food delivery as a backup option when they don’t want to cook or are tired after work. However, if you plan, you and your family won’t be stuck hungry and waiting around for your meal.

Order your food before you leave work for the day or while you’re waiting to pick up your kids from school or after extracurricular activities. Most food delivery services provide estimated delivery times. While these aren’t always accurate, they give you a good rough idea of when you can expect your food to arrive. If you know you’ll get home around 6:00, start looking for food to order around 4:45 or 5:00.

If you are worried about missing the delivery if it comes before you get home, you can prepare for that too. Leave a note instructing the driver to drop the delivery off on the porch if no one answers the door, or call or text your delivery driver to let them know where you are. Of course, no one likes waiting for someone to arrive, so make sure you agree to a delivery time that’s after you’re likely to be home.

Order Healthy Before You’re Starving

Planning food delivery can also benefit your health. If you are trying to eat healthier or lose weight, schedule your delivery in advance by ordering before you are starving. The less hungry you are, the more likely it is that you’ll make a better food choice, like a salad or other lower-calorie option.

Ordering ahead of time also allows you to adapt to how long restaurants take to fulfil your order. If you know of a specific restaurant with healthy options but usually takes longer than a fast-food business, you can plan accordingly by ordering earlier.

Leave Clear Delivery Directions

It’s crucial to make delivery as easy as possible for the drivers delivering your food. Leave clear directions during the ordering process in case the driver isn’t familiar with your neighbourhood. Include cross streets or details on how to identify your home quickly (e.g., “on the corner with a red door”).

Delivery preferences are essential to list as well. For example, if you have children sleeping and don’t want to wake them, leave instructions for the driver to knock instead of ringing the doorbell.

Prep Your House

It’s also essential to make things easy for your driver once they get to your house. Ensure there aren’t any obstacles preventing them from coming to the door (like pets, snow, trash, or other debris) and that the outside of your house is adequately lighted and easy to see. This helps the drivers find the correct address and make it to your front door quickly.

Drivers also want to feel safe when delivering, so proper lighting will ensure they know where to go and can see who is answering the door.

Always Tip

Most delivery drivers rely on tips to ensure they are making a decent hourly wage. Most food delivery services and apps allow you to tip when ordering or online after completing the order. Drivers will also happily take cash, as this is an instant payment, instead of waiting to be paid by the ordering service. According to Glamour Magazine, tipping 15-20% is standard for large food orders, such as several pizzas or food bags for multiple people. It’s also polite to list more if it takes more effort than usual to complete a delivery, such as during severe weather. For smaller orders, such as dinner for one or two people, Glamour says $2-4 is a good range.
