For a reasonable, hearty evening meal, this place is a nice contrast to all the Euro gastro pubs dotted around Liverpool Street. The food looks pretty ordinary, but was actually pretty damned good. Flat breads and humus, slaw, Greek salads, charred octopus and aubergine dip - lovely. I really enjoyed it, and would do it again for a family meal.... More

For the size portions you get, it is overpriced. We popped in probably an hour or so before their last orders and had one of their meze type menus for two. Wasn't quite sure whether some of it was meant to be cold meze or hot, as at least two of the dishes were simply Luke warm. Bean dish was... More

First visit to Old Spitalfields Market. So many tempting aromas from the stalls, but after a long morning we were desperate for a civilised lunch in the warm. The Real Greek hit the mark perfectly! Excellent food, expertly prepared and presented, great house wine, good atmosphere with friendly, helpful service.

One of my favorite places for lunch break. This Real Greek has a streetfood deli as well, and a full box is only £5.50. The meat is super good. I also visited for early drinks and dinner with colleagues recently; we sat at one if the cozy booths. Service was great, and the food was perfect, although I think their... More

Last Friday, my friend and I took away a lunch box from The Real Greek in Spitafields. Every dish looked very good and very tasty. Unfortunately, the pleasure was short lived, I have been sick the whole following night. On Saturday morning, I received a text from my friend telling me she had also been sick the whole night. So...

As we were going to the Opera in the evening, we needed a filling lunch. Where better than the Real Greek? Really good, tasty food which left us full (but not stuffed!). There were a number of options that gave us great value - it's really nice to feel there are a real range of options on offer. We opted... More

We had the octopus, the lamb cutlets, tzaziki, the Aegean prawns and the olives. Everything was amazing! The house wine is very bad, so try to avoid it. The rest is amazing, the staff is very nice and has nice atmosphere. We highly recommended!

Staying in Spitalfields

Neighbourhood Profile
Spitalfields
For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the next big global trend, the hipster zone of Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting some of London's most popular bars and clubs.

 Wedged between the business-minded City of London, expressly trendy Shoreditch, and zestful Whitechapel, the lines between traditional and contemporary beautifully blur in this historic East End nexus.
