An impromptu pit stop and unexpectedly grabbed a souvlaki to share, Greek salad and chips. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience with virgin olive oil on every table, the layered meze others had looked amazing, plenty of choice to share. The service was relaxed and unhurried, we were checked on but not intrusive, we'll definitely be back.

For the size dishes we got i think it is over priced. We had the grumpiest waiter who was not interested or helpful, as this was our first time we wanted to make sure we were ordering enough food, but he just made us feel like we were wasting his time. But he had more then enough time to not rush us through an order the place was dead and most staff were standing around waiting for the evening rush. The food was nice, cooked from fresh from what i could tell but tiny portions for the price paid for each dish. Have been put off returning was not a good experience.

We pre booked and glad we did as it's very busy , we were served very promptly with our drinks then ordered our food again very promptly ,we ordered a selection of mixed dishes four of us we had about 9 dishes all served on plates on a tier it's not a lot for the money to be honest it's tasty but not really Greek if you know what I mean ! and it was served so quick it all
Felt rushed , we were in and out in under 50 mins ! All in all it's ok I like the atmosphere decor etc , but far to rushed not exactly what I had expected not good not bad

I like the idea of this place - great concept. Good location too. Not many Greeks working here though! I was told there was only one on the staff. They need more! I think it is what they think Greek food is - but there is so much more to mezze. I liked the cake stand idea for serving the dishes. The giant beans were not bad at all. Chicken was fine as was the lamb kofta. The hummus was good but didn't seem home made which is a pity. The Greek Salad had no dressing at all and was disappointing. Just because you pop a piece of feta cheese in with some olives and tomatoes doesn't make it a Greek Salad. £32 for the sharing menu was quite steep for what we got but that's the UK these days. Staff were pleasant enough. With a little more care and attention to recipes this place could do very well. At present the adjective 'Real' does not really apply in the title. I hope they get it right soon.
