    So good! Wasn’t sure we were at the right place when we got there to be top 10 in London just from the outside view . The food was outstanding and the service was great. The hot and cold appetizers was great to try things . The meatballs were some of the best I’ve had and I’ve had them in Greece.

    I’m not sure why this restaurant is listed so highly. We traveled out of our way to get there. The neighborhood is working class and quite unattractive. We ate outdoors on a very busy street with dozens of buses constantly passing by. I thought the restaurant was Lebanese, but it was actually Greek. We started with hummus , just okay, and baba gannoush, not very good, so I left most of it over. Then I had the moussaka, which was just ordinary. Unfortunately I won’t return.

    Modest selection of starters and mains but all the classics are available. The food is well cooked and presented and the prices are reasonable. Service was very good. This was my second outing to this restaurant and I'd certainly be happy to continue going back.

    I had the moussaka, which was nice, although a little lukewarm in the middle. The wine list was very limited for wine by the glass - only a house wine available unless you wanted a whole bottle.

    Lovely staff really took care of my Mum, who is in a wheelchair. Even gave us extra baklava to take home. Dolmades and spanikopita were both...as expected, but the mains (kleftiko and pan fried sole) were really special. Both recommendations from the staff, who consistently provided useful guidance, including on the crisp,dry-ish wine. We'll be back

    A fulsome welcome. A prawn cocktail filled to the brim with crustaceans and lettuce; a hearty chunk of lamb shank with potatoes; half a large tub of yoghurt with honey, then a complimentary brandy. What’s not to like?

    This was my second time visiting Alexander the Great and, just like the first time, it was a great time. I booked a large table for a birthday celebration and we were seated in the lower level in a private area for all of the guests. The decor and music was very authentic, just like being at a seaside restaurant in Greece. Starting with the service, our waiter, Vasilis, was amazing. He kept checking on us and had no issue with our party coming in staggered over 30 minutes after the start of the reservation. He also made sure to ask me my name and referred to me by name for the entire night. The appetizers were phenomenal. We ordered pretty much every dip and several of the meat and cheese options. All plates were cleared and even the vegetarian guests commented on how delicious everything was. There are not a lot of restaurants outside of Indian cuisine that offer up so many options for non-meat eaters. I especially recommend the Taramosalata, Hummus, Tirokafteri, Loukanika, and Keftedes. After the apps, we ordered main dishes of all types. Everyone was very satisfied but the winners here were the Stiffado, Fish Kebab, and Sea Bream. The fish especially seemed to be very fresh and the garnishes were perfectly accenting they food. After finishing our mains and polishing off the bottle of Ouzo for the table, the waiters brought down cake and a bottle of champagne, compliments of the house. The cake was delicious and a perfectly sweet way to end our time. Perhaps the biggest delight was the bill; for such a large group, the final price was more than reasonable. For London, it was pretty much a steal. This is one of my favorite London spots now, and I highly recommend it for anyone looking for an authentic, delicious, and reasonably priced experience for parties both big and small. I know I will be making a return very soon!

    Went out to Camden to this Greek restaurant based on Trip advisor reports. We enjoyed a lovely meal and we were looked after very well. Had drinks outside afterwards following by a complimentary shot before we left. Would recommend a trip out to this little gem.

    Eileen made the experience at this fabulous greek restaurant a great night. The food was truly amazing and beautifully presented- we were able to take our time and dined on superbly cooked baby squid, salad, chicken souvlaki and a stunning baklava and ice cream. We were able to take our time and the food, ambiance, wine, authentic greek music and free drinks at the end of the night made for a brilliant dining experience all round. We loved it. Thank you to all the staff.

    I booked this restaurant for a second date, it was great. We initially sat inside but it was a little noisy so moved outside to a cute terrace. It felt quite Mediterranean, we even had warmth from a pretend sun (outdoor heater). We order grilled haloumi, hummus and pita starters followed by sea bass and were not at all disappointed, the food was really tasty. There was a lovely ambiance with greek music in background. It was quiet enough to easily converse and we had a lovely banter with the waiter who told us little stories about his visits to Greece. I would happily recommend the place, the food and the service
