Great food with fantastic flavours and textures; reasonable prices; and a charming hostess (Irene, the owner, and a genuine Greek).

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.

I’ve been here twice and both times it was exceptional. The food is great (get the wild boar), and comes quickly! Lots of options and a good price. Authentic Greek.

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!

A little gem on brick lane. The food is amazing and authentic, the best Greek I’ve had. The staff were so lovely and very accommodating- they even surprised my husband with a birthday dessert! Would def go back and highly recommend. Book in advance as gets booked up fast.

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.

INCREDIBLE FOOD & SERVICE! My partner & I had an amazing evening at Suvlaki! The food was delicious (Greek small plates is a great shout) and we were made to feel very welcome. Nice setting & atmosphere too. Couldn’t rate the team or food more highly. DEFINITELY RECOMMEND!

Lovely place, prices far too high for their tiny platters: 5 pounds for 5 mini-shrimps covered in tomato sauce, 5 pounds for 4 pieces of bread 2cmx2cm with a bit of cheese, 5 pounds for 5 tiny pieces of bread with a 2cm cup of sauce.. :))) must be a good business !

We were a group of 4, and it was all our first time. Staff were extremely welcoming upon arrival. We were initially put on a small table for 4 but we requested that if a bigger table become available that we be moved. 5 minutes later we were moved to a bigger and comfier table. We chose a selection of dishes to share and each one was sublime.
My particular favourite was the cheese nibbles and the prawns. We finished it all off with delicious deserts, the tiramisu and the chocolate dome. Price wise, the food is cheap considering the number of dishes we ordered and how amazing it all tasted. Staff were extremely friendly and attentive!

Wonderfully looked after by Beatrice, we were treated to another excellent meal at Suvlaki. Everything is delicious. The chef was experimenting with a jacket potato and some amazing butter and herb based dressing - simple but stunning. This place is the best addition to Brick Lane for years.

What a lovely restaurant! My partner and I arrived at 7 and were worried we might have to give up our tavke because our two friends were running an hour late, but the waitress couldn't have been more accommodating. We stayed for over 3 hours in total and had the most delicious food! The spicy lamb chops, cheese nibbles and veggie moussaka were particularly delicious. Because it's tapas the bill does tend to add up pretty quickly, but the food was really tasty and the service was fab. Thank you Suvlaki!

The ambience of Souvlaki is really intimate cosy and relaxed, Thai is helped by the faint (not too strong) smell of the food and incense, the decor is dark and the lighting dim. It's the type of place where someone would walk in and say "oh this is a nice place". The food was tasty, and relatively reasonable for shoreditch. The small plates are fab and varied, the souvlaki is only 1 small skewer for 7 pounds, so get a wrap.

Very good Greek food. Starters and souvlakis come in small portions and small prices, so you can mix them up tapas style. Very tasty and quite filling, with a reasonable bill at the end. Worth a try.

Sadly despite the positive reviews , we did not have an enjoyable evening . The food was mediocre at best and hugely over priced . My husband was knocked into every time the waitresses went past and quite frankly it was a big let down . Not sure how they’ve managed to get such positive reviews before. Maybe we were there on a bad night ?
