My friends wanted to go back here for the octopus salad - grilled fresh, soft octopus, served with garlic sauce on the side, £16 for a large portion as a main. It is indeed a very nice dish and I would reccomend it. I had the slow roast lamb leg, melt in the mouth, delicious and quite big as a... More

My son's favorite London restaurant was a clear choice when we found ourselves right down the street from Halepi. Olives and veggies arrived as soon as we sat down. Hummus followed with a nice basket of warm pita bread. It was just a warmup for a tender lamb kabob with golden chips. No room for dessert. Not cheap but the... More

Four of us shared both the meat and seafood meze in Halepi and it could have fed six! It is a great place to tucked away just off the Bayswater road. excellent food, atmosphere and service!

We travelled with a group to London and were staying just north of Hyde Park when we found this little gem. Everyone liked it so much that several in the group went back multiple times over the course of our two weeks. The restaurant is, well, cozy, with 4-5 rows of tables occupying most of the space. The staff was... More

The Halepi Restaurant in Leinster Terrace is cosily tucked around the corner from the busy Bayswater Road. It is a quaint, Greek Cypriot restaurant that has been established for decades. The low-ceiled interior, decked with rustic decorations makes the slightly crammed place rather charming. Most of the food is simply delicious like the very special fried Greek cheese starter called... More

My mom and stepfather have been an avid fan of Halepi for years. I ate there last about 3 years prior to my most recent trip to London. Luckily, this trip I was staying very close by so my friend and I went for lunch. As usual, we were not disappointed in the least. The food was flavorful and filling,... More

Went here last night with a pal. We immediately felt like part of the family. Our waitress, a blonde Russian lady, was relaxed and helpful and really made our evening enjoy able. The food is first class, so tasty. We shared various dips and starters and then had a lamb dish and beef stifado. Just delicious. Recommend 100% for excellent... More

I'm always nervous of returning to a restaurant we have enjoyed after a long absence, often time improves your memory and reality is that the chef or owner has changed and your cherished memories are tarnished. Not the case with Halepi, this was one of our favorites when we visited London on a regular basis nine years ago and it... More

I liked this restaurant so much that I ended up eating lunch here twice during a one-week stay. The first time I ordered souvla, which was a generous portion of charcoal-grilled lamb. Their tabouli was excellent, too. The second time I asked the waitress about which fresh fish she would recommend. I’m glad I did. I was served one of... More

Just back from Cyprus where I didn't manage to find a decent Stifado on offer. The one I had here was excellent and my colleagues also enjoyed the Kleftico, souvlaki and mixed grill washed down with a couple of keos and followed by decent Cyprus coffees. Busy village taverna atmosphere. A very enjoyable experience.
