Having read my “previous review”:http://www.silvertraveladvisor.com/review/restaurant/160918-review-the-real-greek of The Real Greek (Covent Garden), events were so similar I could have submitted the review again and changed the venue.
This time, instead of Kinky Boots, we’d been to the highly acclaimed Jesus Christ Superstar at Regents Park Open Air Theatre (there is little point in reviewing this as it’s a sell out and only lasts for one more week).
We’d had a glass of champagne in Coco Momo on Marylebone High Street and decided to avoid the crowds by heading down a side street. We were delighted to find “The Real Greek”:http://www.therealgreek.com/marylebone/ and even more pleased to find one of the two tables on a balcony free.
Having checked what we’d eaten previously at the Covent Garden branch, I realise we’re very predictable because, from the extensive range of hot and cold mezze dishes on the “menu”:http://www.therealgreek.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/TRG-MainMenu.pdf, we chose many similar dishes: flat bread, houmous, taramasalata and grilled haloumi but this time adding a different dish of melitzanosalata (smoked aubergine blended with garlic, shallot and lemon).
All were delicious and perfect for a light nibble bearing in mind we’d had a picnic in the park pre-theatre.
Having checked out the pudding “menu”:http://www.therealgreek.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/TRG-Dessert.pdf, we decided that the Greek filo custard pie at a whopping 959 calories was too indulgent (yes, the calorie count is shown for each dish). However, the baklava at a more modest 289 calories was a winner especially as it was big enough to share and was half price in August.
We had a bottle of Greek white wine, great value at £16. and our total bill came to £40.
Service from a young man was excellent and his mum should be very proud of him.
Another successful meal from a chain which consistently delivers great food at reasonable prices.
