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 Greek tapas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013 via mobile

We've had a voucher for a 2 course meal for £10 and decided to try something relatively new to us - Greek food. We were so glad we did! The food was varied and came in massive amounts - it'd have easily fed at least 3, if not 4 people! The service was friendly and very quick. Loved the whole experience and can't wait to return.

“Great food, but music too loud”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

The food was incredible. And not just meat for a change, but also plenty of vegetable and other dishes.
Dj played good music, though way too loud. This made every conversation a yelling contest.

“Excellent Authentic Greek Food on the South-bank of the Thames”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

A lovely restaurant serving authentic and excellent Greek food in a delightful way - in tiered serving dishes similar to tea-sandwich plates stacked in a holder five or six plates high. A wonderful way to sample all the various Meze and dishes offered - wonderful for both vegetarians and avid carnivores. The baklava is traditional and excellent, and the live music on the weekends perfect - in character and just loud enough but not too loud. Worth a visit - but they get crowded - best to make a reservation and ask for a table in the window.

“Taste of Greece”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Stopped by for dinner this weekend here have seen ad advert for them so thought would give it a try.
Location is great on Bankside, with great views of the thames and St. Pauls especially if you get a seat outside!
Ordered the souvlaki, tasted just like they do in Greece which was great, however the paper they wrap it up in was like glue and got stuck to the bread and ended up very messy to eat.
Maybe a little pricey for what you get, and lacking presentation skills here - food is literally chucked on plate.
Very quick service, in and out with in 45 minutes.
