To be honest this was my second choice. Ideally I wanted the southbank but it was heavily booked. The restaurant and facilities at the spitafields restaurant were lovely. It is situated within the market of spitafields which I had reservations about. Truly takes away the magic the bank side restaurant offers as the market which is indoors lacks atomosphere. The...

I went to this restaurant last night with my colleagues for our Work Christmas Diner. The only good thing about this place is its location. Everything I ate was dry, bland and tasteless. The humus was bland even after I added copious amounts of salt to it. My main course was the lamb skewers. When it arrived, I could not... More

Our second visit to the Real Greek in Spitalfields both times for lunch and both have been great. The staff are welcoming and friendly, advice is forthcoming and service is quick. The food is colourful and very tasty, I'm not sure about how 'authentic ' but for some one who has been on holiday to Greece a few times it... More

Its a very good location in Spitalfields market and was very busy when I visited earlier this week. Its part of a chain which I've visited before and the menu is a standard one. I found it very noisy as it got later and left to have a coffee in a quieter location where my friend and I could chat... More

This restaurant sits in the middle of the historic Spitalfields market, which in itself is interesting but not when we went out for our evening meal. True the food was pretty standard Greek fare but it was of good quality and the portions were reasonable. The interior layout was modern and perhaps more City watering hole than Greek taverna but...

Visited with Australian friends after the typical delights of fish and chips, and British currys. Flavoursome and presented well. Ordered a meal for four (souvlaki) with added sides, all were well received, fresh and tasty. Give it a go, better than the traditional Greek styles in most cities.

If you've never tried good greek food before, you might find it good enough. If you have... Don't even think of trying it here. There's nothing greek about it. I was first surprised when I got the menu, cos I expected to find the traditional dishes you could find in any 'real greek' restaurant. There were none! The fact that... More

This restaurant is too noisy. You can't have a conversation. When we arrived 2 waitresses had a blarney about where we could sit. Had a few tapas and bread. We had a chick pea dish, which we had tried before, and it lacked flavour. Should be lemony with fresh herbs. Overall a noisy, not great meal.

I was taken here for lunch on business - we were quitre late, 3pm, and as you may expect the restaurant was fairly empty at tyhat time, post-lunch crowd. It is a nicely set out place and I imagine it has a great buzzy ambience when full. We had a comfy booth, a select5ion of various picky bits on a... More
