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.

Customer reviews for The Real Greek - St Martins Lane
((((* 19 June 2017 by Julie from Lichfield
Pleasant restaurant with friendly staff. Good place for a pre theatre lunch. Went for a set meal option and as there were 4 of us and 2 vegetarians, we were able to have a nice variety. Only negative was the new potatoes. Avoid this option. I think they had been pre cooked then blasted in a microwave. Rubbery and really not nice. On the plus side, the red greek house wine was light, fruity and very pleasnt indeed. Great for a hot summers day.

An excellent pre-theatre venue.

Overall a good experience. Friendly efficient service despite being really busy. Restaurant seemed a bit stuffy but we got a seat near the front door which made things a pleasant temperature. Clean and tidy. Reasonable choice of food but portions are small (as others have said). We made the mistake of thinking the set menu for £11.95 included a main meal - it didn't! The portion sizes are ALL tapas sizes so we did leave a little bit hungry still. The food we had was tasty and was served quickly. Had the cheapest wine (which wasn't cheap) but it was very drinkable. Great location if you're going to London Coliseum as we were, but book ahead - people were being turned away.

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 !

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.

Have dined here many times and everything was excellent, as always. Great service, food, ambiance and we were offered the window table so we could watch the world go by.
