We booked for 3.30 so it was very quiet. The food was delicious and the waitress friendly and helpful. We felt the hot Meze came out a little quickly after the cold. We were hoping to take our time and worked at not feeling rushed! Other than that not complaints and will definitely return.

Combining Greek dining tradition with a chic, contemporary interior design, The Real Greek St Martin's Lane always boasts a bustling, inviting ambience. Serving tastes from across the eastern Mediterranean, the restaurant sits right between the hubs of Leicester Square and Covent Garden, making it a perfect refuelling spot for days out in these areas.

The Real Greek menu showcases traditional Greek cuisine, rich in flavour and perfect for sharing. There is a great selection of hot and cold meze, as well as wholesome grill items including dukkah chicken wings, tender pork belly, grilled octopus and lamb meatballs. Souvlaki wraps come made with soft flatbread, homemade tzatziki, sweet paprika, and fillings ranging from Loukaniko sausage, through to falafel with tahini.

Tempting sweet treats on the Real Greek Covent Garden menu feature more Greek traditions, such as lemon cake with honey-infused syrup, to baklava and Greek sundaes. There are wines and beers from Greece, as well as the famous ouzo spirit to finish.

Offering a great selection of Greek delicacies, and full of Mediterranean welcome, The Real Greek London is 2 minutes' walk from Leicester Square Tube Station.

    A perfect location for pre theatre food and service friendly and ( almost too ) efficient. As noted in a previous review the hot dishes for our meze arrived too soon. The clever trick of serving small dishes stacked ' afternoon tea style ' works quite well and allows a large number of small tables in a relatively small space. My ( not small ) husband and I had to plan our departure strategically so as not to disturb fellow dinners !

    The set lunch is very good value with good selection of food and variety of tastes. The house wine good but a little pricey.

    Great hidden gem in the Heart of Leicester Square. Excellent food, good value for money and nice atmosphere.

    This was a real find, I had asked for a nice table as it was a special birthday treat, and found a celebratory banner up, we declined a pudding....only to be presented with a portion of cheesecake with pyrotechnics...and a complimentary glass of something really rather special. Lovely staff, who sang happy birthday and the whole restaurant joined in, food was excellent and served on tiered stands... if you are going to see Half a Sixpence, this is close and a great find. We shall return and have no hesitation of recommending this restaurant to others, they made us feel so very welcome....
