It's hard to find great tasting authentic Greek food in Central London as the large Greek community here mostly live in North London and that's where all of the best Greek restaurants are. This is a chain restaurant that offers very commercialised variations of popular Greek dishes.

The worst Greek food i have ever had.

Greek food is all about mezze and sharing, but the tables here aren't even big enough for the plates and glasses, let alone plates of food. You also have to sit on stools which doesn't really make for a relaxed dining atmosphere.
