Beautiful restaurant hidden away on Brick Lane and a wonderful spot for a delicious tapas dining experience. We were warmly welcomed and accommodated for despite bringing one additional member of our party to join. Furthermore, the team there made the 21st birthday occasion we were there for even more special. Will be back!

Food was yummy... much better than expected. One dish, a main for one person, took ages to arrive which was a surprise as the sharing plates were served very promptly. When reminded, our waitress wasn't particularly apologetic, in fact slightly defensive. Apart from that it was great!

Quite pricey for what it is. Food is ok, nothing extraordinary. The concept is around sharing small dishes. You end up paying a lot for very small portions.

Excellent food & customer service every time. We've been to Suvlaki 3 or 4 times now - it is a perfect spot to go with friends or for a cozy date. The staff is very friendly and attentive and the food is always perfectly cooked and really flavourful. Would recommend the wild boar skewers among other smaller dishes. Highly recommended and great value.

LOVED THE WILD BOAR, i ordered the skewer but can't wait to go back and try the wrap too! all the dishes were very tasty, the meat moussaka definitely got a thumbs up from my partner. we sat at the 'naughty corner' and it was a very sweet spot, perfect for a date night. also recommend the desserts, especially the orange and almond cake, sweet and juicy, tiramisu was one of the best one i've had in London. the only downside was the service was not the fastest, but that's because we were sitting in a hideaway corner where they couldn't see us clearly at all times. Overall, the best Greek restaurant in London.

Simply stunning Greek tapas! We are definitely come back here to try the rest of the menu. Every single one of the 10 plates we shared was stunning, that included veggie, meat and fish dishes. The courgette fritters and lamb cutlets are just some of our new faves. Capped it all off with an Ouzo and a Greek black coffee. This is probably the best Greek we've both ever had.

Food was nice and staff great, but the restaurant is small and over crowded. We were sat in the door with a freezing breeze coming in every few seconds. A lot of people who had booked had to stand by the door for over half an hour to wait. Crowding round watching us eat. Wouldn’t go back because of this

Very high prices for very smell portions, yes, I understand it is meant to be tapas style, but even for that - very disappointing. Food tasted fresh however, and you could tell was mostly home made. Wild boar sausage was very disappointing, tasted like a hot dog on a New York street corner, not what I would expect from the description on the menu. When I told the server, or two servers in fact, they shrugged their shoulders and walked off, didn’t offer to take it away. The Mousaka tasted purely off cinnamon, and seemed like it was a desert, it was so sweet. If I hadn’t paid 12 pound for it I would’ve sent it back., although after the wild boar sausage I didn’t think it was worth even trying. Wouldn’t recommend, as it is quite expensive for what you get, and there are much better places to eat in London

Great fresh food , I like the decor and the friendly staff. Portions sizes could be improved and Greek salad should be improved. Lettuce does not belong in it and serving it in a ashtray sized plate is a bit over the top and those olives are not from Greece.

This is a typically Shoreditch venue - cool, buzzy atmosphere, good food but incredibly expensive for what you get. At first glance it looks reasonably priced but then you're advised to order 3-5 dishes per person! The house wine was also nearly £30 a bottle. The food was nice, but I've definitely had better Greek food in London and without the price tag. With so many other choices nearby I don't think I'd go back.

Greek salad had a lot of variety. Pork was cooked well, we ordered the skewers instead of the wraps. The taramasalata was a very different typical Greek/Cypriot dish, it tasted a bit cheesy and doesn't come as a dip as you might expect.
