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.

    Good experience. Music slightly too loud to have an easy conversation. Would return

    Great atmosphere and great food. "Tapas style" dishes giving the opportunity to try lots of great dishes.

    The food was delicious. The service was slow and we had to ask multiple times before drinks were served. Would recommend for food. But maybe going at a quieter time hoping service would improve

    Overall a good dining experience. We had 2 other table's orders delivered to our table by mistake, but it did seem that perhaps the server was new and didn't have a grasp of the table numbers yet? He was very apologetic both times and we used humour to appease his embarrassment. As a Vegan chef _ I have some feedback on the Vegan items I ate .... The jackfruit slovaki was very tasty but was not balanced .... it did not include cucumber or lettuce, which would a good cooler for the spicyness of the jackfruit & it would have been nice to have some crunch too. There was not much (if any?) of the vegan aioli in the solvaki either. I also had the chickpea deep fried type of spanakopti pastry parcels ... the chickpea mix was very well seasoned & cooked, however, it would make the dish AMAZING if it was served with a wedge of lemon or lime and a dipping pot of the vegan aioli to cut through the heat of the chickpea mix and the fatty / deep fried taste of the pastry.

    The wait staff were all superb and super friendly. They had live music playing which gave it a nice touch. All the food was really lovely although we did find the chicken skewers to be dry. Everything else was wonderful though.
