“Not the real Greek”
Reviewed April 1, 2013 via mobile

I happen to be at Spitalfields market and wanted some food. The Real Greek was offering a spring menu for £10 for two courses. The restaurant was clean, the waitress friendly. The food portions were the right sizes but it just did not taste authentic. The butter bean soup tasted like it was out of a can, the houmous was dry, the flat breads were average. The halloumi was ok. Nothing tasted like it the real stuff. I dont think restaurants that part of a chain really offer the real deal.

“Great Greek food”

Really reasonable, tasty Greek food. Friendly staff and good Greek beer :) There is a deal for two courses at a tenner which is good value.

“Yummy Greek Lunch”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

Hungry after long travels to London, and both lovers of Greek cuisine, we decided to go here after looking at a few options within Spitalfields market. Glad we did. Although it's a chain with a few locations, we thought the food was good--appropriately Greek. We were both pleased with what we ordered; the large Greek salad was particularly good. The space was modern--a bit on the generic side, but perfectly pleasant and buzzing with activity during the lunch rush. Service was efficient and polite. Nothing remarkable, but a solid place for a nice lunch at a reasonable price.

“Very enjoyable food.”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

We had lunch here and had one of their Menus for 2. The selection was good. We only just about managed it all. It was more than it looked.
The food was hot and properly cooked.
Good atmosphere and good value.

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.
