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.

I ordered chicken skewers and there was a long black hair in the food! I raised the matter with them but they refused to give me a refund - very bad service! I was also disappointed by the portion size and the taste of the food (I ordered some additional dishes). Overall, very disappointing experience - I would not recommend... More

If you want some authentic Greek food and dine with Greek music in the back ground, then this is the place to come to. In the middle of the hustle and bustle of Spitalfields Market is this chain restaurant. The waiting staff are very helpful which is a bonus as not everyone knows what the ingredients are of the Greek... More

We had been to a different branch of The Real Greek and had a lovely meal so thought we'd try the one in Spitalfields. I have to say, unfortunately, we were disappointed. We ordered olives and crudités to start followed by three Greek salads which was in fact a tomato salad with a smidgeon of feta cheese, two grilled aubergine... More

As a Greek, I must say I really liked the place. Good and prompt service, excellent and quirky presentation of the food, and a good variety of greek dishes on the menu. Very nicely decorated restaurant, very stylish and modern, with quality greek music playing in the background (thank god not another "Zorba"-playing place!! haha). I would recommend it to... More

I've been to this place three times already, and definitely still counting. This restaurant has helpful and friendly stuff and provides a really good atmosphere. Since my first visit, I always order a Peloponnese, which is perfect if you want to share with your friend and want to try a lot of different meze. In this sharing platter you get... More

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.
