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.

    Had a lovely evening meal with friends. Food was good and even on a Friday there was no pressure to order as we caught up with our friend.

    Evening started off well as it seemed the waitress was well aware of our allergy (had included this in my booking notes). By she then went on to make several blunders and kept coming back to our table to tell us some of the dishes we ordered did contain egg, when she first told us they didn’t. Made me feel very anxious and untrusting of the food

    Food is great, very tasty and quick to come out. However unfortunately the service was very slow and we felt a bit ‘forgotten’ about.

    Nice spot for a summer evening eith outdoor tables. Yummy food well presented. Good service throughout but they were slow bringing the bill which meant a couple of us missed our trains.

    Selection of food was great, but it was a real shame the 'hot' meze came out cold..... the staff were clearly busy as we didn't have a visit after the food was brought out so that we could air our concerns. When we had finished (didn't east most of it as it was cold) - we expressed our concerns then and were given a free dessert.

    Service was slow and they forgot one of our dishes. I have been to a lot of Greek restaurants and was the worst

    The staff were really friendly and made us very welcome. They took the time to explain what the dishes were and how and what to order. It was a most enjoyable experience and we will definitely go again.
