Yassou, and hello! I’m Yiannis Malindretos, and I’m the owner of Zeus Street Greek in Moonee Ponds. You know that delicious smell that wafts throughout Moonee Ponds Central Shopping Centre that makes you need baklava and need it right now? Yep, that’s me! 

I have a huge passion for food as well as a knack for connecting with customers. So, I thought, why not combine them and earn a living at the same time? Before I knew it, my store was up and running, providing snack packs, salads, halloumi chips, spartan bowls, and more to our hungry and bustling community.  

I’ve been behind Zeus Street Greek here in Moonee Ponds for two years now, and I couldn’t be happier to be doing so. Our community is close-knit and provides amazing local support, and so many people are as passionate about delicious Greek food as I am. I grew up on the island of Crete, so anything and everything Greek runs in my veins. Mythology included, which is how I named Zeus Street, after the God of all mythological Gods, Zeus himself. 

While today I have a regular customer base of families, singles, kids, and people in different age groups, it hasn’t always been smooth sailing. In the beginning, I quickly learnt how much work was involved and the sacrifices I needed to make to make Zeus Street Greek a success, but with these plus consistency in our products and services, I’m proud to say I can make people happy with our authentic Greek fare. Sharing our favourite family recipes brings so much joy to me and all those who walk through our doors, making our food feel like home. 

I find that Moonee Ponds has everything we could ever want or need at our fingertips, and it’s on track to become one of the nicest suburbs in Melbourne to live in. The Council plans for the future look exciting, and I can’t wait to see what happens next!
