Real Greek, E20 1GL

Greek restaurant in Westfield Stratford City, part of a small chain.

Situated outside the main shopping centre on the Chestnut Plaza (very close to Wahaca and The Cow, a large section of the seating is outdoors. However, like most of the other Chestnut Plaza restaurants, in winter this section is enclosed in weatherproof canvas/polythene (i.e. not suitable for smokers). The interior seating mostly comprises standard small tables and chairs, with a larger table/benches and three raised booths near the back.

Kat and two friends visited on a Tuesday evening in October 2014. We hadn't booked and it was fairly busy, but we were shown to a table straight away. Music was playing quietly, just loud enough for us to hear that Zorba's Dance was played at least twice. The menu suggested 3 or 4 meze dishes per person; 3 each plus a portion of chips was about the right amount for us. The highlights were Gigandes Plak (£4.25), a hearty bean stew with a lovely tomato sauce, the halloumi and vegetable skewers (£5.25) and the prawns with feta (£6.75). Tap water was provided on request. With drinks and a pudding each, the bill came to £25/head excluding tip.

Kat's verdict: the food was pretty good for the price, though the service could have been a bit more attentive. A reasonable option among the many in Westfield.

Accessibility: Like much of Westfield Stratford City, the restaurant is step-free (aside from the raised seating booths). There is an accessible toilet that doubles as a baby change unit, and the cubicle doors in the ladies' both open outwards.

Last visited by Kat and friends, October 2014. Opening hours taken from the Real Greek website, September 2017.
