Restaurant description

With outdoor seating overlooking the canal, The Real Greek Reading gives diners an authentic taste of laidback, inviting Mediterranean dining. Set inside The Oracle centre with its shopping and cinema attractions, this is a perfect spot to unwind after a day at the shops. The kids' menus makes this a versatile spot for families too.

Showcasing robust flavours, The Real Greek menu presents an array of wholesome specialities. Ideal for sharing, tasty hot and cold mezes sit alongside souvlaki wraps, served straight from the grill. Favourites from the wide selection include juicy tiger prawns in a rich tomato sauce, with spinach, pickled peppers and sprinkled with feta, or handmade British lamb patties with Greek yoghurt.

Extending tradition through to the dessert menu, The Real Greek Reading offers a tantalisingly sweet selection, from Greek filo custard pie, to luxurious homemade baklava. Family-friendly The Real Greek offers a fun meze and skewer selection for everyone.

Filled with traditional Greek styling and with a warm Mediterranean ambience all through the day, The Real Greek in Reading is just a 9-minute walk from Reading Rail Station.

    We enjoyed the decor, afternoon tea style service, friendly staff. Food was delicious - best haloumi fries we’ve had (and we have them everywhere we go)

    Excellent food as usual. Was concerned though about somebody being seated directly behind me even though the restaurant was fairly empty whilst we were there. The manager said that all other the tables were booked for later and they didn't want to put people under pressure to get out by a certain time. They also said that the Company 'rules' permitted people to be sitting close to each other (within 1 m), but back to back. We weren't very happy about this policy which we think should be reviewed.

    The food is great, but so are the staff. Been back a few times as the combo is really good. It's a chain of restaurants, but the staff make it feel like you're visiting a family owned place. On this occasion we were there to celebrate a 70th birthday and I the staff helped with candles and a sparkler on a cake for the birthday boy.

    Favourite lunchtime venue. Service and food the best in Reading. Have the trio, humous, Tzakizeki with Flatbread, chicken skewers and chips. Fantastic.

    I’ve been here a few times and every time the quality of food has been amazing! The staff are so friendly and welcoming and the service is very fast. My favourite dish is the chicken skewers and I recommend getting the flatbread with hummus! I will definitely be going back again soon

    Lovely friendly service, good tasting food. Small portions for the price charged, surprised we needed to order bread separately with our £5 Tzatziki - not something you would experience at a traditional Greek restaurant...

    The staff were friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. The outdoor tables were well sheltered and comfortable. The food was delicious - we had forgotten how good it is, it'[s been so long! Many vegan options and all well labelled. The Real Greek is a real treat.
