We literally walked off the street at 7:00pm on a Saturday evening and asked for a table, the restaurant was already very busy and didn't think we would get a table for 5. They advised they had a table but needed it back by 8:30pm so we were very pleased. The food and service was excellent and the atmosphere was... More

We only found this Resturant by chance whilst being down at the Globe. It was fantastic for lunch and really good for price with 2 courses for two people and drinks for £22!! Fantastic service today as well.

Have visited several of it's sister restaurants and always enjoyed them and this was no exception. The Meze options are good value and you can always supplement with additional dishes as you like. View of the river was good, service was good - an all round enjoyable lunch

I don't know if this food is 'real' Greek or not. All I know is it's delicious! The Souvlaki are my favourite and I will keep coming back again and again for them! The staff are always great, we've yet to have a bad experience. We always leave satisfied and with full stomachs! Great value when using a student card!

We ate here on Feb 14th and like most places it was really really busy and I was a bit worried that this extra pressure on staff & the kitchen might mean we would not experience this restaurant at its best . This was our first visit but we were not let down & the service from start to finish... More

We popped in after finding this restaurant as we walked around. And have to say so very pleased we did. The food was amazing....not fancy but just perfect for what we wanted. The staff are very friendly and very helpful. The food and wine was just perfect. A wee taste of Greece on the banks of the Thames.... Go and... More

The place was buzzing with life! Food was good, reasonably priced. This place had a surprisingly good vegetarian spread. The only disappointment was the new potatoes which were basically just boiled potatoes.

This is the second time that I had dinner in the real greek restaurant, and I really appreciate the atmosphere, the good food and location close to the river. I think that the best part of this place is the friendly people that work there, and also the mix sauce and the excellent bread that they serve with. I think... More
