For the past few years, co-owners of Oasis Takeaway (and siblings) Matina Strathie and Leo Economos have concentrated on the weekday daytime hours that also suits their customers.

Leo says "we've really tried to concentrate on our clientelle which is workers in the CBD, workers in the streets, so we've really oriented the catering for them."

The menu is also more lunchtime orientated, with the kinds of salads and other meals that suit individuals rather than whole family packs.

There are a few ways people utilise Oasis Takeaway to fulfil their needs.

Since they open from 8am, some will stop by on their way to work so they don't need to leave their site on their lunch break.

Others will perhaps send in the apprentice or other junior in to collect everybody's order at lunch (with loading zone parking right out the front for commercial vehicles to use appropriately).

Then there are those who order what they want when they want it, and it is convenient for them too.

"We're also orientated towards quick, fast service," Leo says.

"A lot of people are time-poor, and they don't want to be waiting in a takeaway for a hamburger to cook, so we try to get our customers in and out in under ten minutes."

The team also rates food hygiene a top priority, and always has. As seen in a story that ran on the South Coast Register on October 1, 2015, Oasis Takeaway received the Excellent rating in Shoalhaven City Council's Scores on Doors program.

Leo said he believed it was a worthwhile program. "It's important for customers because they deserve to know the cleanliness and hygiene status of the restaurants and cafes they're eating at," he told the South Coast Register at the time.

So when it comes to the current health situation, it's pretty much business as usual at Oasis Takeaway because they already had your safety front of mind.

With Matina and Leo raising their own offspring now (Matina with two and Leo with three), Leo says they also remain very family-focussed themselves.

In closing, Matina and Leo wish to say a heartfelt thanks to all the staff that work at Oasis Takeaway now, as well as those who worked there in the past to help build such a strong reputation for their family-owned business.

They are also grateful to the Donato family who own Morison's Arcade, and all the suppliers and other businesses that have supported them in the past and especially those whom they work with now.

And finally, as their old leather-clad cash register always did, they want to say thank you to you, the customers who have made the continuation of their business possible for the past four decades.
