Have wanted to go to The Real Greek for sometime, but don't live near London, so this was first chance, and it didn't disappoint. Had lunch with my sister, we went for the £8.95 lunch, which we were able to order different options that we could share. Great authentic tasting food, cooked well. 3 courses plus wine £20 each, good... More

Went for Saturday lunch on my Mum's birthday. Service was very good, they even brought some cake with a sparkler in. Food was nice - maybe a little too char grilled but otherwise nice and we were happy

Our table at the Aqua Shard was booked for a much later time, so we decided to go to The Real Greek Restaurant to share some mixed mezzes. The evening was most enjoyable and we loved the setting which overlooked the beautiful London skyline.

Fine experience here on a Saturday night after Tate Mod. Glad we had reservations. Maze was great, gyros just OK. Wine decent, bathrooms disgusting with no baby changing tables. Would still give it another try because the atmosphere was happening and tapas-style dishes were tasty. Probably would leave the baby at home.

The menu is varied with lots of Greek favorites, There was live music and even a bit of Greek dancing, such a great atmosphere. I... More

Visited this restaurant in November 2014. It was chosen by our friends for a place to meet for a relaxing evening. Found that we were pleasantly welcomed by the staff and promptly shown to our seats. Being this was my first time at a Greek restaurant I had no idea what to expect. That being said the waiter was very... More
