Zeus Street Greek city limits
April 2017 – Zeus Street Greek, a family owned group of fresh-casual eateries, will open in Australia Square’s dining precinct on Wednesday 19th April.
The launch marks the second foray for the brand in the CBD of Sydney, the first at Westfield Pitt Street opened in July 2016 as an Express Concept Store with Zeus Australia Square to follow the same format. The store will be located at Shop 404 in the burgeoning Australia Square dining precinct catering to the corporate lunch crowd of the area.
Zeus Australia Square will offer a compact menu but will still serve up all the classic pitas, including The Uncle Tzimmy family of three featuring succulent meat (chicken, pork or lamb) from the souvla cooked traditionally on long skewers over hot charcoal; wrapped in fluffy pita bread with tomato, tzatziki, onion, paprika and Zeus’ famous chips. Uncle Tzimmy will be joined by the new range of pitas from Zeus’ recently launched menu along with Spartan Boxes, the perfect al-desko lunch packs, plus a compact selection of sides, salads and ice cream sandwiches.
The store design pays tribute to the authenticity of the Greek kitchen within a bespoke street consumer experience. Clean lines, a subtle pop of colour via Zeus’ hero signage and an old meets new blend of silver corrugated and perforated metal positioned side by side a bespoke wooden etched façade which comes together to bring the space to life.
Co-founder of Zeus, Costa Anastasiadis, says, “After the success of our Zeus Westfield Pitt Street store, we jumped at the chance of setting up shop at Australia Square.”
“Australia Square is an iconic Sydney CBD landmark and we’re looking forward to introducing our brand of Greek street food to the working community around the precinct.”
To celebrate the opening, Zeus Australia Square will be hosting an I LOVE FREE SOUVLA powered by Take Give charity launch event on Friday 21 April. This event is in support of Hello Sunday Morning, a movement towards a better drinking culture, their vision is a world where drinking in an individual choice, not a cultural expectation. Zeus will serve up free pitas between 12-2pm and will donate $2 to Hello Sunday Morning for every pita given away.
“These events are a way for us to thank the community for welcoming us, and an opportunity for us to give back to our community, said Costa.

About Hello Sunday Morning
Hello Sunday Morning is a movement towards a better drinking culture. Our purpose is to build technology that supports people to change their relationship with alcohol, whatever that relationship looks like – it could be taking a break from drinking or simply cutting back. Our vision is a world where drinking is an individual choice, not a cultural expectation. A world where confidence and identity aren’t measured in standard servings. A world of better choices, fewer hangovers and unforgettable Sunday mornings.
