SquareMeal Review of The Real Greek Bankside

The Real Greek does a grand job of reviving warm memories of holiday hospitality, although the food is better and more varied than your stereotypical tourist-trap taverna in Kos or Kalamaki. Animated staff are as welcoming as can be, so order a Mythos beer and some mezze – perhaps lightly battered salt cod with tangy lemon mayonnaise or tender octopus char-grilled with herbs and garlic, alongside decent renditions of dolmades, hummus and grilled halloumi. Also save room for some smoky grilled skewers, juicy souvlaki wraps (the pork belly is excellent) and desserts ranging from bona-fide baklava to creamy sundaes – just avert your eyes from the calorie counts next to each item. Lightning-fast two-course lunches are a steal, but The Real Greek's wide-ranging, shareable menu and “fabulous entertainment” mean it’s also a no-brainer for evening parties.

Fairly busy Sunday afternoon, but the staff seemed to be having difficulty keeping up. Some difficulty in attracting staff's attention - either two or none arrived. Food the usual high quality, with quantities more than enough. However, the temperature of hot dishes was more variable than normal - this should not happen, given the speed with which the kitchen prepares them.

A great night out. Value for money on the Aphrodite menu, we were a party of six. Great live music, very entertaining. The headchef taught a group of us how to dance traditional Greek dances. Service very warm and friendly, highly recommend this restaurant for food, a good wine list and fabulous entertainment.

I'm writing about the shepherd bush location: Absolutely disgusting. Rude and slow staff, and they essentially feed you the parts of the animal that nobody else would eat.
