RDM Eats: Platia Greek Taverna, Top Ryde City Shopping Centre

posted in: Cafes & Restaurants, Life | 0


For authentic Greek food straight out of Yia Yia’s recipe book, look no further than Platia at Top Ryde Shopping Centre. Located on the ground floor in the Piazza, it’s an easy option for lunch or dinner, with plenty of centre parking and quick access to all the other good stuff Top Ryde has to offer. PLUS we’ve scored an exclusive RDM kids-eat-free offer! See below for all the details.

If you haven’t yet experienced their $39 ALL-YOU-CAN-EAT GREEK YUM CHA, it’s definitely one to try – but make sure you come hungry! From dolmades to dips, to pita and halloumi, and of course souvlaki, it covers all the greek favourites. We tried something like 18 greek dishes and that didn’t include dessert! Our favourites were the zucchini fritters and chicken and pork skewers.



For dessert we ordered Galaktoboureko purely for the fun of trying to pronounce it, but also because it’s delish and as traditional as greek desserts come.

As for the kids, they enjoyed calamari and chips, spaghetti Napolitana and chicken souvlaki. If you can forgive the low res photo, you’ll see the kids had a great time playing on the famous (infamous?) green oversized outdoor chairs in the Piazza in between courses, and we parents were most grateful that we had that safe area the kids could play in, without concerns of a main road or disturbing other diners.



During our dinner, we had the pleasure of meeting Platia owner Steve, who shared with us his passion and ensured we had a great time at his lovely establishment. We learned some greek words like Yiassou (hello) and went home very satisfied indeed (but not before swinging by Kmart on the way out)!

Platia would love to host your family for an authentic Greek meal. They’re open every day for lunch and dinner, and their greek yum cha offer is available all the time. You can book a table here!
