great food, and a great history. 

here’s our story…

Our family emigrated from Greece in the late 60’s and like many other Greek families at the time we started our own mixed business take away shop – serving both charcoal chicken and fish and chips. Dad would go to the markets most mornings, looking for the freshest ingredients, whilst Mum would be busy preparing the shop for the day ahead. Both Mum and Dad were very proud and felt that the cleanliness of the shop and quality of the food was a reflection of them personally.

That’s when us kids got involved. From a young age, we too were called upon to do our bit for the family business. Although we didn’t appreciate it at the time, we learnt so much at such a young age. Customers shopped knowing that the food they were bringing home to their families was fresh and healthy, the shop was clean and the owners were very proud and every time you would walk into the shop, the staff would remember your name and even your order!

Now the next generation has made a leap to greatness with Alexandra the Great!

Founded on our family philosophy we offer the Templestowe local community a taste of traditional Charcoal Roasted Chicken and classic Greek souvlaki in a modern and welcoming environment. After all, food tastes best when enjoyed with family!

 We aim to keep it simple, with fresh and wholesome food all of which is made daily is our kitchen.

So for a great taste & a great time, drop on by you’ll find us at Templestowe Village!
