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.

Good meals but small portions it doesn’t seem like portions in Greece. I can’t find my favourite beer Mytos. No variation of ouzo.

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.

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!
