Crafting nutritious Grecian cuisine, The Real Greek Bankside blends an authentic taste of the Mediterranean with edgy interior design. A sweeping bar and high tables indoors offset the tranquil al fresco area.

Showcasing robust flavours, The Real Greek menu presents an array of wholesome specialities. Ideal for sharing, tasty hot and cold mezes sit alongside souvlaki served straight from the grill. Favourites from the wide selection include juicy tiger prawns with chilli and garlic butter, or handmade British lamb patties with tahini sauce.

Extending tradition through to the dessert menu, The Real Greek restaurant offers a tantalisingly sweet selection, from Greek lemon cake drizzled with honey-infused syrup, to luxurious homemade baklava. Family-friendly The Real Greek London offers a fun meze and skewer selection, just for kids.

In the cultured South Bank area, The Real Greek Bankside offers a fashionable haunt. The iconic Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre sits 4 minutes’ walk away.

    The food was good, but the dining experience was horrible. They had live Greek music that was so loud it was uncomfortable, we were a table of 12 and could not hear the person next to us, we politely asked to have the music a bit quieter, which they did for only a few minutes. We couldn't wait to get out of there.

    The Real Greek is a gem of a place in a great location close to the Tate Modern and The Globe Theatre. The dishes were all very authentic and the service was fantastic, speedy but not rushed. There's a great choice of meze dishes for meat lovers to vegetarians and the desert list is mouth-wateringly good too!! Despite being in prime London location the prices are good too, won't break the bank. The only down side is the acoustics in some areas of the building, it can be quite loud and difficult to have a chat, however there is outside covered seating which would solve this problem. Definitely recommend.

    This was the first time a group of four of us had eaten at the Real Greek and we really enjoyed it. We weren't sure what to order but our waiter was really helpful and gave us a great selection of food. The plates are quite small so you need to order a selection of items but by the same token I think it would be easy to order too much, our waiter was spot on with the quantity. The lamb chops were delicious as was the pecan and caramel cheesecake. The only criticism I would mention is that some areas in the restaurant need updating, ie damaged / worn seat covers. Overall we had a very enjoyable meal and experience and will happily return.
