You can take modesty too far; and 10 Greek Street in Soho needlessly hides its light under a bushel. At the less busy end of the street, the restaurant displays little signage above the door. A plain glass window reveals a narrow shop with bare wooden tables, glasses, cutlery poking from a pocket in the table top. The menus are chalked on large blackboards. But the genius of 10 Greek Street is in those dishes. A brocolli and cheese soufflé was light and flavoursome; butternut squash ravioli was buttery and melting (but some too chewy greens with it). The awesome Tamworth pig for two was astounding. Brilliant crackling, a mound of pork, moorish black pudding bubble and squeak and spring greens. The dish must be ordered for two, but, honestly, there's enough for four. Most people take some home in a doggy bag, explained our pleasant waitress. The wine list is reasonable with most bottles priced between £20 and £25. Our Austrain Zweigelt cut through the fatty pork beautifully. Service is friendly; atmosphere welcoming; a restaurant to return to.

I was in London for work and needed (I mean, needed!!) a good meal and boy am I happy I came here. I was sat at the bar in the back, and was attended to very nicely. They let me taste a few wines before choosing both a white and a red. And the view at the bar of the incredibly efficient kitchen was quite good entertainment. If I ilved nearby, I could see this restaurant as an easy go-to choice when I wanted excellent, straightforward food and service.

This neighborhood restaurant in Soho has the kind of food you'd love to eat every day at home. So delicious, and so home made but ......just so much better. I could cheerfully move in. It's bustling and noisy, and very atmospheric. Staff stressed but always friendly and super efficient. great wine list with some notable and interesting additions such as Albarino. Small plates to share as starters and a changing menu of options, usually including a slow cooked dish such as belly of pork or similar with seasonal veggie. Perfect!

Each visit exceeds expectaions

Great food always makes me smile. there isn't always a need to go to very expensive restaurants and have large tasting menus, 10 Greek Street is great and it is just my type of place!
I went there with a friend and he gave me strict instructions to not be late. We grabbed a couple of seats at the back by the bar looking in to the kitchen – brilliant!
There was a lot of action in the kitchen and the food that came out was oh so nice!
First out was fried baby squid, along with Sprouting broccoli with hazelnuts and chilli followed by smoked mackerel and delicious burrata. After that it was time for the risotto, wonderful aromas came from the truffle and it was light as a feather! I don't eat a lot of risotto but if it was all like this it would be a staple in my diet!

This is a find, great service, fun to watch the kitchen action and great food!

First, what 10 Greek Street isn't. It isn't the elegant, banquetted dining room where you'd take your wife/husband/partner (or someone you'd like to be one of those) for a quiet romantic lunch or dinner. But 10 Greek Street is everything else: great food at very acceptable prices (with the interesting notion of small or regular plate portions), brisk and pleasant service, bright and busy customers . . . The place simply buzzes with enjoyment! We had fried baby squid (£7) and potato-topped lamb pie (£15) - super value. One downside (which everybody mentions): they don't take bookings for dinner - it's first come, first served (they suggest you wait in the pub next door and they'll call you when there's a table clear).
