This was the 4th restaurant completed for the owners of The Real Greek chain and was designed to offer Greek street food to the busy tourist trade and growing business community on the south bank with a170 cover Souvlaki restaurant and Bar.

 

The central bar is a key part of the concept, separating the space into three distinct areas: the bar, a ‘formal’ restaurant area and a series of high tables alongside the open kitchen for snacking and drinking. Tables radiate from the centre to allow guests a direct view of the ‘kitchen theatre’ and also of the River Thames through the full height glass windows, and actually extend through the glass frontage to furnish the external dining area on the river terrace.
