Description: The Real Greek is not only a must for anyone visiting London but is also a favourite among Londoners themselves and at Bankside, we pride ourselves in providing our customers with a wide variety of the finest quality of freshly cooked Mediterranean food. Perfectly located next door to the Globe theatre and only a few steps from the Tate Modern, Bankside is in an ideal spot for any occasion. Again serving the authentic Mezedes, Souvlakis and Sharers, our venue has plenty to offer for both business and pleasure. Being situated on the banks of the River Thames, this restaurant draws anyone walking past and we do recommend you make a booking. We have live Bouzouki Music every Friday & Saturday evening from 7:30pm

“Excellent place to eat after a walk along the South Bank”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

We called in for lunch after a walk along the South Bank. The food was reasonably priced for London with plenty of choice and some cheaper lunch options. The service was polite, quick and efficient and the food was tasty and authentic - an ice cold Mythos beer made it perfect ! Yammas !!

“Excellent vegan options - just a little pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

This is a great place to come for a tasty vegan lunch. Good choice and excellent service. Really clear menu both in terms of ingredients and calories, which helped us make an informed selection for lunch. It may not be great for a vegan evening meal (just because there are limited hot vegan dishes) and it is a little pricey for some of the dishes (e.g. hummus - but that was LOVELY). However, for a treat it was very nice, and in a good location.
