Hellenic Club of Canberra get innovative during lockdown with takeaway Drive-Thru


With the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) recording 16 new local cases of COVID-19 today, it looks like dining-in at the Hellenic Club of Canberra is off the cards for a little while longer.

But that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a traditional Greek dish from the Club in the meantime. In fact, if you’re after a delicious lunch or dinner, you can still pick up takeaway orders at the Club’s Drive-Thru at Woden.

This innovative idea was first introduced by the Club during the COVID-19 pandemic last year and it’s been reintroduced during the ACT’s current lockdown as a means of staying connected with the local community.

“While we’re sad we can’t welcome our members and guests through our doors during this time, we know if we all stick together and do the right thing we will be back together very soon,” the Club wrote on Facebook.

“And don’t forget you can still support our family-owned restaurants during lockdown by visiting our contactless takeaway drive-thru!”

The Hellenic Club was first opened in 1979 as a meeting place for the Greek community of Canberra and has since grown into Canberra’s largest entertainment venue.

The Woden Bistro, Fillos Taverna + Bar and Ginseng Chinese have all pitched in at the Drive-Thru by offering pared-back takeaway menus for lunch and dinner.

To ensure minimum contact and maintain safety, all orders are placed via call or text message, the restaurant advises of the pickup time and you call them from your car when you arrive.

They then bring the food to you. Really, what more could you ask for?

Take-away menus and drive-thru opening hours for The Hellenic Club of Canberra can be found here.
