25+ Best Souvlaki in Oakleigh

Oakleigh is a suburb in Melbourne, Australia with a population of about 34,000 people. It's known for its iconic oak trees and cafes and restaurants. Recently, we went to Souvlaki and ordered some yummy Greek food! We had the lamb souvlaki wrap which was delicious! I think you should try it too if you're ever in Oakleigh.

Souvlaki is also well-known for its chicken souvlaki wrap. They offer pita bread or rice wraps. The rice wraps are vegan so they'll be good for those who don't eat meat. And don't forget to order a side of tzatziki sauce (a yogurt-based sauce) because it complements the taste of the

Oakleigh is filled with people who are enjoying the beautiful weather and being close to the beaches. With such an eclectic mix of cultures, there is no end to what you can find for food here! Souvlaki is one of my favourite things on the menu as it has been made in Greece for centuries, but has taken off all over Melbourne because it tastes so good.

Kalimera Souvlaki Art Souvlaki 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 a very special 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 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 traditional and progressive, where the best, carefully selected meat and quality fresh vegetables with just the right spice are wrapped in delicious pitta bread, KALIMERA SOUVLAKI ART is a restaurant will WRAP you around.

Hunky Dory Souvlaki Oakleigh

hunky dory



A family of fishermen since 1927.

At Hunky Dory, family is at the heart of everything we do.

Our man behind the Hunky magic, Greg, was raised on the water, standing proudly beside his Greek Dad & Grandfather on their commercial fishing boat. When school holidays rolled around, you could find Greg behind the counter at his family’s fish & chip shop. As a seafood-lover, Greg’s Dad was well known as one of the friendly faces at the Melbourne Fish Market for years. When Hunky Dory opened its doors in 2004, Greg’s family were by his side. They have all proudly worn a Hunkys t-shirt along the way; Greg’s Grandfather was still rocking one in-store until he was 91!

We are blessed to see our Hunky family grow over the years & are so grateful for our beautiful family in-store who spread the Hunky Love every day.

Our mission at Hunky Dory has always been the same – to shake up the Fish & Chip game & give it a healthy spin. Whether you’re craving a succulent piece of grilled salmon or a crispy potato cake, at Hunkys, everyone has a seat at the table to be as healthy (or as naughty) as you like.

Pull up a seat, relax & soak in the Hunky Love.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Souvlaki?

Souvlaki is the Greek version of the Middle Eastern kebab, made of meat – or sometimes fish – marinated in lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper and grilled on skewers. Unlike a kebab, which is traditionally lamb, souvlaki tradition calls for pork, especially in Greece and Cyprus. However, since souvlaki has become a popular fast food made with customers in mind, chicken, lamb, swordfish and vegetarian versions are not that hard to find.

Tomatoes, onions, cucumbers and peppers are traditionally served as part of the dish, either fresh on the side, grilled on the side, or threaded onto the skewers and grilled with the meat. Tzatziki, a cold sauce of yogurt, cucumber, garlic, dill and lemon juice is also a traditional accompaniment. Souvlaki is almost always served with grilled pita, and often all the ingredients above are served in a fold of pita. Though sometimes this sandwich is referred to as a gyro or souvlaki gyro, “gyro” actually refers to a massive roast cooked on a slowly-turning vertical spit, then thinly sliced and served in pita.

Souvlaki History

Souvlaki is considered a Greek food, and historians cite references to the dish in the writings of Aristotle (384-322 BC), Aristophanes (446-386 BC), and Homer, their senior by 400 or more years. The fact is, souvlaki was over a millennium old by the time Homer came along.

From 1450 to 1100 BC, Minoan culture, based on Crete, dominated the southeast Aegean Sea and was the most advanced civilization in the Mediterranean. A major outpost was Akrotiri on Santorini, some 90 miles north. Somewhere between 1645 BC and 1500 BC, a massive volcanic eruption sent the center of the island into the sea and buried Akrotiri under layers of ash and debris.

Minoan civilization went into decline and was gradually absorbed into what eventually became Greek culture. It’s now thought that Plato, writing about Atlantis a millennium later, was referring to legends that grew out of the Santorini explosion. Akrotiri was unknown until 1867, and modern excavation did not begin until 1967. Among the numerous artifacts found there were racks clearly intended for grilling skewers of meat over heated coals, proving that souvlaki dates back at least 2,500 years and is probably much older.

Souvlaki shops began appearing in Greece in the early 1950s and quickly became the reigning fast food of the region. The dish was introduced to America by immigrants who arrived in the early 20th century, many of whom were restauranteurs who settled in New York, Chicago and other urban areas. Souvlaki and all things kebab got another popularity boost when suburbs, patios and backyard barbecuing reshaped American culture and cuisine in the postwar years.

How to Make Souvlaki Indoors

To make souvlaki indoors, I immediately ruled out the broiler as too smoky. I also dispensed with the idea of skewers, which would be an awkward fit for my frying pan. What I did use, and what I highly recommend is a gas stove, a cast iron frying pan, and a cast iron griddle large enough to set on top of the pan like a lid.

First I mixed a marinade of oil, lots of lemon juice, dried oregano, minced garlic, salt, and pepper. I cut skinless, boneless chicken breasts into 1.5-inch cubes, tossed them in the marinade and put them in the fridge for about five hours. When I was ready to cook, I cut chunky slices of onion and did the same with red bell peppers. Then I heated the skillet until it was hot and threw the onions, and grape tomatoes, then covered the skillet with the griddle. I opened the skillet just once to give the veg a stir, and made some quick tzatziki while the onions finished charring.

After I pulled out the vegetables, I used the same method on the drained chunks of chicken. Again, I only took the griddle lid off to turn the chicken pieces, then slammed it on again. Creating this sealed heat chamber and keeping it closed as much as possible was the secret of getting a charred taste with no smoke.
