The Real Greek Bankside

Squaremeal Review of The Real Greek Bankside ?

Most Brits’ knowledge of Greek food is limited to their holiday gyros & moussaka, washed down with copious quantities of Mythos beer. The Real Greek chain has its work cut out convincing the populace there’s more to it, but its lively contemporary eateries do a game job with an enticing menu that champions the region’s wonderful ingredients – octopus, herbs, honey, olives, pulses & suchlike. ‘Nibbles & mezze’ cover a lot of ground from dolmades & grilled haloumi to smoked aubergine salad or garlic & chilli tiger prawns, though mains are pretty much limited to souvlaki with flatbread. Meagre portion sizes are a serious grumble, so you’ll probably have ample space for pudding. Think carefully before ordering the ‘Greek sundae’, however; there are calorie counts with every dish, & that bad boy has 685.

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.

You can enjoy the buzz and flow of tourists in Borough Market on any day of the week. Saturday lunchtime – and Valentine’s Day at that – is probably not the best day to casually eye-up food stalls, sample freebies and find a table that’s not been booked for the past two months. It is London’s oldest food market, standing in its original location for two hundred and fifty years. Along the South Bank, the Thames as your backdrop, Shakespeare’s Globe your neighbour, all eating establishments have their...

Quite possibly the smallest portion of food I have seen since 1985, who'd of thought you could serve a “big” greek salad in a ramekin dish, well they do. Service lacklustre, bordering on non-existent. Over all a big dissapointment and about as “real” Greek as a pork pie.
