We walked in at 7.30pm on a Saturday evening with no reservation and little hope of getting a table - however, we were told just a 15 minute wait and they could squeeze us in. Brilliant service from the moment we walked in the door, very attentive staff who were polite and friendly - particularly Stavros. But the star of... More

We visited at 6pm on a Sat evening which was obviously a really busy time with pre theatre goers, luckily I'd booked but still needed to wait 15mins. However, the staff were apologetic and friendly and showed us to our table as soon as they could. The menu is great and food delicious and all the staff were smiling despite... More

While in London recently and visiting the Royal Opera House to see the opera “The Meister Singers”, which, with intervals, spans a period of more than five and a half hours, we found it necessary to have a late lunch as opposed to an early dinner just before the start of the performance. Having enjoyed Greek food on many occasions,... More

Came here back in December with a friend when we were visiting London. Restaurant was packed but staff found us a table. Can't remember the name of what we ordered but it was absolutely delicious!! Both my friend and I agreed that it was the best Greek we'd had in ages and enjoyed every second of our meal. Can't wait... More

Very friendly and professional service, when the place is full it gets more than cozy - one could say crowded with limited space. The food is adapted to British taste, standard nothing special. The food is tasty and well cooked, yet if the place is called "Real Greek" one would expect the food is alike.

What a lovely friendly place to eat - we were served by a jovial, jocular man called Stavros and the food was incredibly excellent

Searching for a spot to eat dinner prior to 7:30pm show at the New London Theater, we found The Real Greek via TripAdvisor. And we are so glad we did. We took a chance on "showing up" between the lunch & dinner crush as we didn't have a reservation & couldn't one find available. Stavros greeted us warmly & told... More

We had a lovely meal here on a busy Saturday night. For all those rating low due to lack of tables- what do you expect in busy Covent Garden restaurants? We easily booked a table online the night before visiting. The food was delicious and there were lots of authentic Greek options. We had the souvlaki for two which was... More
