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.

    Excellent selection of meze- we tried a few new ones. They bring the cold ones first with the hot to follow. The service was good although it was mid- afternoon and it wasn't too busy. We had a couple of Greek beers and a pudding and coffee. Not bad on price - each dish is priced separately although you can get a fixed menu with a bit more of a limited choice of dishes. We would go back again as there were several other dishes we would like to try. It is in The Oracle centre (riverside by Debenhams) Worth a visit.

    Wonderful, authentic Greek food! I came hoping for something other to excite than just Moussaka (wonderful dish, of course) and was not at all disappointed. A fantastic variety of tasty food and the Taramasalata was the best I've ever tried.

    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!
