The agora was the meeting place in Ancient Greece, the focal point for public life. Another vital part of Greek life has always been, and is to this day, the act of getting together to indulge in good food and drink, pursuing what the venerable Greek philosopher Epicurus called ataraxia, a tranquility best enjoyed in the company of friends and family. With the addition of Ahgora’s Greek restaurant and cocktail bar to the cluster of eateries down Glebe Point Road, Sydney has an opportunity to experience what the citizens gathered on the ancient agora always knew was the key to the good life.

Glebe’s Ahgora opens for breakfast over the weekend, with a smattering of traditional Greek morning dishes like the moussaka omelette dotted between European staples. But it’s when the long lunches and indulgent dinners roll around that This Greek restaurant really shifts gear into something unique down Glebe Point Road. Ahgora’s mezze plates, a highlight on the menu, offer Mediteranean favourites like tarama, tzatziki, olives, smoked paprika and pitta bread, chicken souvlaki, charred octopus, beef keftedes with tomato and ouzo sauce, and a delectable house-smoked salmon with pickled cauliflower, cucumber, and puffed wild rice. Another signature dish is Ahgora’s slow-roasted lamb – unmissable among the dishes on offer at this stylish Sydney restaurant.
Indeed, Ahgora is a gorgeously appointed spot, making the most of its long, narrow Glebe Point Road premises with an innovative interior that comes into its own with nightfall. Dinner amplifies the lunch offering, with Ahgora urging that modestly-sized dishes like grilled haloumi with puffed quinoa and salted cod croquettes be shared across the table. Ahgora really distinguishes itself from other Sydney Greek restaurants with its two banquet menus, giving guests the the chance to choose three or four of Ahgora’s signature dishes with entrees, sides and desserts included. Ahgora is perfect for both romantic dates or classically Epicurean get togethers with friends.
Exceptional food, and anlovely intimate atmosphere. The haloumi is outstanding. Nice wine selection. Friendly staff. I am a coeliac, and the chef was very accommodating. Overall, a great restaurant.
Great food, pleasant atmosphere and good service. A lovely dining experience to celebrate a special occasion. Couldn't fault this restaurant - would strongly recommend it!
beautifully presented tasty food in a very friendly environment. No BYO is it's only drawback but the wine we had was great and not over the top pricing. Generous serves and lively place to celebrate.
Restaurant has a very avant-garde feel. We had a 6-course banquet so food was plentiful and superb. The service very friendly and efficient. Will recommend to others!
The restaurant is so beautiful inside and the service and food is amazing however for this booking we ordered a range of share plates for mains to share with 4 people that were staggered over to long a period of time. First main share plate came out, we finished this then another came out we finished this plate, then another single plate came out by itself. We had ordered salad and potato's to have with the share meat plates which didn't come out until the last meat plate was delivered so we were quite full and couldn't eat all the food as food was staggered over to long a time. Would definitely go again but just ask that all share mains are brought out at the same time.
The food and service was great, the only drawback was it was a very busy Friday night (which is understandable) and as a result lots of noise. As we were a small group catching up after a while, we would have liked a quieter space. That aside, it is still one of my favourite restaurants. I will definitely be back.
The wait staff were lovely and very attentive but it helps being one of the few people in the place at the time so we had a lot of attention. The food was beautiful, however more modern australian with a flourish of greek, rather than strictly greek which was slightly disappointing. However what was on offer was beautifully cooked, and the portions for sharing were just right.
A group of us (6 people) met to do our semi annual catch-up, the ambiance was good, the attention from the wait staff was excellent and the food was very tasty and more than enough (we had the banquet menu) - definitely not something that one could rustle up at home - making it a very special occasion!
We had a good experience at Ahgora. Nice atmosphere, interesting menu, good food and good service. Lots of gluten free options on the menu too.
The banquet is super value and all choices are yummy! The octopus was a stand-out and all accompanied by low key but attentive service. The dessert platter is sensational with the banquet - we wished we had more room for it!
Overall the food was delicious. Our favourite was the haloumi ravioli, it was different. The combination of the salty cheese and the sweet dressing was excellent. As with many restaurants the drawback was the noise level, making it difficult to hear each other at our table of four.
We had the banquet menu. Entree was good but mains came one by one and we would have liked the mains & sides to come all together. We were 4 of us and the portions were quite small to fill 4 adults. Price was $55pp but not worth it. Included wine but I noticed my bill included a glass of Pinot Noir -???
Excellent, friendly service. Good food. A pleasant change from the "standard" Greek Feast. We had a six course feast and found it was too much food for the two of us.
We shared the haloumi ravioli and the prawns with corn purée, with a size of the cauliflower. Just had room to share a baklava. Beautiful food, great service. Nothing to fault.
Beautiful food. MThe $55 banquet can't be beaten. Highlight was the slow cooked lamb. Service is efficient, attentive but not overbearing. Room can be a bit noisy on busy nights.
Even though is a bit of a small place they were able to accommodate our large group with no problem. Superb service and amazing food! I would definitely recommend it.
The food was delicious - had the ravioli, octopus and the lamb - would recommend all three dishes. Staff were friendly and the a lovely atmosphere in the restaurant.
Great food and atmosphere. Have been there as a couple and with a group of friends and it is ideal for both. Friendly service. Recommend the chargrilled octopus with the lentils. Absolutely delicious.
Good restaurant, haloumi ravioli and moussaka both great. Pricing good for area - the $55 meal deal with snacks, three mains, 2 sides and shared dessert is a bargain. Service well intentioned.

We booked a table for eight. The food was fantastic and service was excellent as usual. Everyone enjoyed the experience and would go to Aghora again.
Fantastic food and excellent service. The quality and innovative way the food was cooked and presented- the ravioli in particular- was exceptional. Will definitely be back.
Very pleasant experience,great ambience, staff really nice , food was fantastic! We had the six course set menu. Highly recommend the food, and experience of AHGORA!!!
Great looking food and even better tasting. Host was personable and incredibly inviting, even when we were late to our booking. Family had a great time!
Been there many times and each time is excellent, from the food to the staff. Highly recommended. . . . . . . . .
Fantastic food, great service, decor and delicious wine. The cauliflower side dish was so tasty, as were the prawns. Would go back in a heartbeat.
Overall the food was great. The service was good. Friendly people. Good destination. Easy to find. Excellent environment. This is the best Greek restaurant in sydney.
Excellent service ambiance and food Great location in inner west Sydney Greek traditional food finely tuned into a subtle sphere of taste, aroma and flavour
Great food. Lovely decor. Lacked a bit of a vibe but otherwise would recommend. Portion sizes were good and pricing was competitive. Would return again
Great food, but unimpressed with the staff. Service was poor and there was a lack of interaction between the servers and the customers. Definitely recommend the octopus.
