I love the real Greek!

I love this restaurant, and go to the Westfield branch quite often. I went here for lunch and all was amazing as usual. There was one small problem with my partner's meal- he found an elastic band in it, however this was resolved quickly and professionally. I recommend the bread oil and dukkah!

Went along on Sunday evening for dinner having checked the restaurant out earlier in the day. On arrival at 7:30 we were greeted with the statement that 'We close at 8' a drinks order promptly taken then the bar closed. We placed our order and in the hurry to close small errors were made and the service became non existent... More

We had dinner here and really enjoyed it. We had crudités, Greek flat bread (served warm) and Tirokafteri (yummy spicy cheese dip) for starters which was incredibly filling. It was followed by lamb meatballs, bifteki and a refreshing watermelon salad with feta crumbled over the top. The portions of meatballs and bifteki are small (4 for each dish) but given... More

Had a nice relaxed lunch here for 2. The atmosphere was very nice, kind waiters. The food was, okay, not more than that. Lamb was a bit overdone, hummus and melitzano salata could've done with more seasoning, bread was a little on the harder side. Still an okay meal though, but you've got better choices at Old Spitalfields Market :)

Not particularly Greek and poor quality food. Soggy new potatoes were particularly unpleasant. I would look elsewhere for decent Greek food.

Visited with a friend for lunch one day and wasn't that impressed. Food was pretty average and a little overdone on the salt. Wouldn't visit again.

We had the two to share lunch during a visit to Spitalfields. Lovely restaurant, great staff, nice atmosphere and even better food. If you like Greek food then look no further. £40 with drinks is also pretty reasonable for London. Keep up the good work, we will be back.

If you want a kebab go to a kebab shop. Was slightly disappointed I do like Greek and Mediterranean cuisine but for the overpriced food we got you have gotten the same food in a kebab shop a lot cheaper. However the service was very good. Don't eat outside when they are packing the market away it gets very noisy.

Staying in Spitalfields

Neighborhood Profile
Spitalfields
For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the next big global trend, the hipster zone of Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting some of London's most popular bars and clubs.

 Wedged between the business-minded City of London, expressly trendy Shoreditch, and zestful Whitechapel, the lines between traditional and contemporary beautifully blur in this historic East End nexus.
