Reviewed March 15, 2013

Starting plates are their best dishes but pittas were delicious too. I eaten a lot and I was totally satisfied. Service is really friendly. Of course the next time I'll go to London I'll come back.

“Real Greek my backside!”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

To call this restaurant "real greek" is an insult to all greek meals I've ever had, and the greek people that made them! The positives were the cool interior of the place, and the price for its location. Also, I had some mini greek burgers that were really nice, freshly made.
However, the waitress was so incredibly rude that my wife and I just looked at each other in shock! The humus was really poor and my wife's lamb looked disgusting, and didn't taste nice either. Also, they put dill on EVERYTHING which really ruined our lunch as I hate dill, it was so over-powering. The fact that they claim to use "fresh" ingredients is a bit of a joke. However, this could have just been a one-off bad experience, but I won't give them another chance to prove otherwise!

“Good Greek food for a reasonable price”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

We' ve visited the Real Greek Spitalfields with 4 adults for dinner. The restaurant was clean and the atmosphere was nice and relaxing. Even if it was busy, the service was attentive, friendly and fast without beeing hectic. The full menu was offering a wide range of greek dishes. The ordered food was very tasty and good. Good value for money.

“Good Greek Food”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

Personally Greek food is my favourite food so was really happy to find this restaurant on my trip to London.
Their concept is that you order around 4/5 small dishes each which you can then share or eat yourself. They have some really good typical Greek dishes like Souvlaki and Tzaziki and some nice Greek wines.
The restaurant looks great, best thing is if you make a reservation so you can sit in one of the booths. The service is good, we had a nice lady helping us choose and she could give us some good recommendations.

“Amazing food for a reasonable price.”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

One of my favourite restaurants in London!!! I have also visit their chains in Covent Garden and Hoxtor (which was the nicest one).

I love the food, the ambience, the staff is friendly but usually quite busy and the price is very reasonable for two people sharing.

I have been to The Real Greek for more than 5 times, since my first visit (2011) and I even held my birthday dinner party last year there. That's how much I love this place.
