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.

    It was average - the food was OK but the staff were clearly having some issues as they were arguing. Also some of the dishes we ordered initially didn't arrive so we were offered free desserts which was generous, however despite being told the missing dishes would be taken off the bill, they had not been and we had to ask for them to be removed (good job we checked)! It was a shame about the issues as last time we dined there it was actually quite good!

    I love The Real Greek! Whatever people's preferences there is plenty on the menu for everyone, whether vegan like me or fussy like my children! I love the hummus, jackfruit stifado, and gigandes with some flatbreads, but there is so much choice it's hard to decide. Most recently I went there for a Christmas meal with colleagues and it was great to share dishes and try new things. I especially love that they come on stands as if you're having afternoon tea! The staff are really friendly and helpful, and we enjoyed some live music the night we were there which made it feel like we were on holiday. Highly recommend.

    Food was excellent, however seemed to be forgotten about after we had finished our main meal. Dessert took longer to come out than the main dishes! Restaurant wasnt busy either so maybe be more on top of your paying customers who are openly looking to spend more money. Cannot fault the food though, was incredible and incredible value for money.

    Great Food: Dips were superb, especially the tarama. tzatziki could have done with more garlic. Lamb kefte probably best of hot meze, though the moussaka was excellent - not heavy at all. lovely wine and good service.
