I went there with my significant other for his birthday. It was a surprise dinner and I asked to be seated at the naughty corner (for a lil more intimacy). They accepted my request so it started well. Then the food was really great: small portions to be shared, tasty, stunning flavours mix as well. The wine was good too (and as a French person I can be severe). At the end, we were too full to have a proper dessert but the staff brought a piece of cake with ice cream on side and a candle on top while singing happy birthday. That was adorable and, finally this sweet note was perfect (lemon / almond cake I believe).

Not overpriced and overall highly recommanded!

The food was very good at reasonable prices (more fine-dining portions than chain-restaurant). The octopus was delicious. A bit let down by the fact that our group of 8 had to squeeze into the space for 6 people (a row of three small tables) despite booking in advance.

I honestly think that Suvlaki is the best restaurant in Shoreditch right now. Superb small dishes, super-friendly team and a lovely ambience. Everyone we take there loves it too - people from all over the globe!

Go now while you can still get a table...

The place is very small and was absolutely packed. The food was very good and came quickly. There was a group of rather drunk men at a table near us who were being incredibly loud which slightly spoilt our experience but you can't blame the restaurant for that. Worth checking out if you're in the area.

Suvlaki has quickly become our favourite place to eat on Brick Lane. Great small dishes packed with wonderful flavours and at good prices. Fantastic staff and a lively ambience. It is cosy but still has nice cool Shoreditch vibe. Go now before the secret gets out...

I had been to Suvlaki in Soho and had a good experience with both food and service.
Unfortunately, I was really disappointed by my experience in Suvlaki shoreditch. We were given a table where we could’t fit in. Then another table in the way leading to the waiters banging against my chair when serving clients.
We waited our food for more than 30mn. Then got one plate and had to wait another 20mn to get the rest of our order. One of the plates was not what we had ordered.
In short, terrible service and really disappointing experience, which is the shame given the food is tasty and the sharing experience nice.
I won’t come back.

Came here with a group of four for an impromptu dinner out. The food was delicious - we shared the majority of the dishes. My personal favourites were the baked feta (a must have) and the vegetarian moussaka - love aubergine! Fun and trendy atmosphere, but not too loud as the place is quite small.

Lovely little restaurant. Nice decor and super friendly service. the menu is nice. With lots of interesting dishes. We don't have many greek restaurants to speak off in London. And this is a nice addition to the scene!

Like the local greek beer and wines. It's a nice touch!

I was missing some specials, totally expected some larger or seasonal dished to be presented with the normal menu.

Food was priced well. Drinks, not so much, I would suggest to re-balance the prices a little for the drinks.

Great meal again in Suvlaki. The courgette fritters never fail to impress our guests and the mixed mushrooms were exceptional. Friendly attentive service and a buzzy atmosphere make this place a real highlight of Shoreditch at the moment. And don't miss the orange and almond cake!

I had a really good evening with a colleague, amazing food and friendly service, it is rather dark in the restaurant but that makes it very cosy and the decoration overall is elegant but not intimidating. Perfectly cooked food, amazing products! If you are about to visit try the orange and almond cake for dessert!

Booked a table for a special occasion through CODE app, were seated quickly and welcomed well. On our initiative asked to change the table to a lovely so called “naughty corner” (great idea), which was lovely, very comfortable sofa in a tiny elevated space, but felt so private and romantic. Service was ran by two guys - very good. Food - amazing - baked feta was out of the world and lamb chops were perfectly cooked and spicy. Overall place exceeded our expectations, as would not have chosen if not for the CODE app. Only one of the waiters was not aware of it and didn’t apply the discount even though was mentioned in the booking, however was sorted out quickly.

If you like greek food, but wish it were spicier, this could become your favourite restaurant. I have been twice in the space of a few weeks, and not one dish has been a let down. Unusual combinations galore, and all work. Fantastic wine list and well priced. The only let down was the service on our most recent visit. They missed a couple of things off our order, it was difficult to get their attention (they were hardly understaffed, the restaurant was not busy), and they did not return any change when we settled the bill in cash (my pet hate) and grunted when we complained about this and appeared to purposely return the change in small denominations...

Absolutely gorgeous food, unbeatable as far as anything else I've found in London for Greek food. The service is wonderful, such friendly waiters who genuinely care about you having a good time and are happy to advise you without just wanting to up-sell to you. Been here twice now within a month for special occasions and will definitely be back again.

Really authentic Greek food on brick lane - very authentic ingredients and flavoursome Greek tapas, the wines and the ingredients are sourced from Greece - the Santorini tomatoes were yum! Reminded us of our Greek holiday where they were served in abundance as part of meals - so fresh and juicy! We tried the prawn saganaki, wild boar sausage skewers, baked feta (fantastic), Cretan salad with olive rusk (fantastic again), tzatziki, pita bread (could just have this by itself), the pulled pork small plate - everything was fantastic. Service was also very welcoming and with a smile! Was pretty quiet for a Sunday lunch - probably because of the very busy brick lane market on! Highly recommended - personally would rate it slightly above the hungry donkey for Greek food, also very good and in the neighbourhood.

Had a really delicious meal here recently with some friends. The food was very good, nice Greek food with a London twist. Worth noting though that the small plates are very small, we had a fair few between us and then had to order the big wraps afterwards. If you're on a budget then stick to the big wrap for approx £7 each and don't get the small plates because it soon adds up!

It was fantastic. Had a small group for a hen do and in the hot weather they let us sit on the terrace which felt like a private area. The food was great, felt non-greasy and non-stodgy, but hit the spot and packed a punch flavour wise. Great service, we’ve all said we’ll be back! Highly recommend.
