We had a special offer of 2 courses and a glass of prosecco for £15 each, it was great! Really good value. The food was delicious and the portions were really big. The staff were very friendly and efficient. I would definitely recommend the Real Greek.

Lovely meal with really nice touches it was my 50th Birthday meal with my daughter. They gave us a desert wine on arrival, the food was superb could have been in Greece! Then to top it all they came out with a cake and sparklers and sang happy birthday. I will definitely return when I am in London again- Excellent service

We had the early evening Athenian at £9.95 pp. Perfect early evening meal before 7.30 theatre. Each person chooses 4 items (from 4 categories) - it was plenty, and you can, of course, share, as we did. Friendly service and good location for the Coliseum. Timings worked perfectly - 6pm for 7.40 ballet. Not the absolute very best mezze but still very nice, no complaints at all. We will do the same again.

There was a happy ambience when we arrived: staff were friendly and were welcoming even though we were over 10 minutes late for our booking. As it was, we had to wait a while for our table as the place was very busy. Drinks were served promptly and we made our order immediately. Unfortunately, it was over half-an-hour before any food arrived - and it was difficult to get the attention of the people serving. They were generally clustered in the bar area, looking at the screen or cleaning tables, so I have a feeling that the main hold-up was in the kitchen. When the food arrived, it was a real disappointment: certainly not freshly prepared, as everything was overcooked. I have eaten in The Real Greek (Covent Garden) before and the meal was delicious. The best part of THIS meal was the spinach terapitakioa, and the main reason that I am giving a 2 for the food overall is that the filling was superb, even though you had to bite through a hard filo pastry to get there. The rest of the meal was terribly hard to eat: we could not get the lamb off its skewer - nibbled around and then gave up. Halloumi skewer was almost as bad with very rubbery halloumi. Apparently, the falafel was hardest of all (my companion warned me against it), while the Chicken Monastraki was the toughest and driest chicken I have had in a long time (even worse than my own culinary attempts - and that is saying something). I can't understand it: it might have been a temporary blip or a temporary chef - or maybe they were just overstretched that evening. Very disappointed.
