Came over for the Olympics from the states. Wow! Lucky to find this place. just walked past and smelt the food, so went for it. Had the plain cheeseburger with the hand cut fries and a cider drink (can't remember the name). Enjoyed it so much that I came back every day that I was in the city. Still moving around the UK and not found anything as good yet. Great service and very welcoming. Will get back there one day for sure!

This relatively new addition to Mile End limited range of eateries is proving popular with students. On our Sunday afternoon visit, the half-dozen couples – who nestled next to the fairy lights, bare brick walls and imposing black-and-white wallpaper – didn’t look much beyond 20 years of age. Burgers form a large part of an international menu, which otherwise offers such choices as ‘eastern spice’-marinated lamb chops, and salmon with spicy lime and soy dressing. The focus is on building your own burger by adding a range of toppings and sauces to a fish, chicken, beef, lamb or veg patty. From the standard options, a mexican burger came piled high with jalapeño peppers, guacamole and salsa. Jerk chicken burger contained a disappointingly thin fillet that looked like it had been malleted into an escalope, but the pineapple salsa garnish was pleasingly tangy. Both dishes came artfully presented next to a construction of chicory, tomato and rocket splashed with dijon dressing, but chips and potato wedges tasted as if they’d come out of a plastic bag. Overall, the Greedy Cow could do with paying as much attention to ingredient quality as it does to presentation.

Read great reveiws about this place, so thought I must give it a try.Very disappointed, food was served warm not hot, Ordered onion rings with meal, they were so greasy, complained to waiter who said he would speak to chef, that was the last I heard about it,. If you want a meal to remember, go to the Greedy Cow, you wil certainly be remined of your meal there because it repeated on me all night.
Nice cosy place to eat. Food was fresh and there were good veggie options available. Prices were cheap for the very filling portions. Waitresses were great with the kids. Plenty of space upstairs for the kids to move around and they loved the blue ice cream! Would definitely recommend.
Fantastic restaurant - HUGE range of food and such GENEROUS portions. All food brought in fresh every day - you can see through a window whilst sitting at the tables, the chefs preparing the food in the kitchen. The staff are great - very willing to see to all needs of the diners - they are cheerful and friendly too. I was in a group of 15 people and we all were served quickly, despite it being lunchtime and full of other diners. We, as a group, have been going out together for many years and dine in many different restaurants, but we all agreed that the food at the Greedy Cow was the best we had tasted. I do hope other people make the effort to travel to Mile End instead of staying in central London for meals and eat at the Greedy Cow, as it is well worth the effort as the food is so delicious.
I popped into Greedy Cow for a lunchtime visit for the first time - and I will be going back! With exotic meat dishes to simple burgers I felt spoil for choice so I was recommended trying the Wagyu burger which I had medium/rare (my mouth is watering again as I write this!) which was juicy and ordered a side of wedges which came with a salsa and mayo dip - perfect combination! I also tried one of their new organic red wines and if I didn't have to go back to work that afternoon I would of had another as it was one of the best Cabernet Sauvignons I've tasted. Great value for money, such friendly staff who I got chatting to about the local area and a great location - pretty much across the road from Mile End tube station. I highly recommend Greedy Cow and on my return I may try the pan seared Kangaroo!
im nearly there every week because the Restaurant is AMAZING!!!!!!! I love the burgers there so lovely
Popped in here after a session at the Mile End Climbing Wall on a Sunday afternoon and were spoiled for choice. Service was excellent, friendly and funny and keen to ensure we enjoyed our visit. My brother had the Wagyu burger medium rare and it was gone in seconds he liked it so much! I had a truly giant salad that was super tasty and not drenched in fatty dressing as so many places serve it these days. Onion rings were epic in size and quality. Great ambiance and I loved the funky jazz playing in the ladies' loos. Only negative comments would be that you have to pay extra for chips with a burger and on the day we went the restaurant was a little too warm. But really minor details. This place serves food far far better than most fancy pubs I've been to recently and I would definitely recommend it to anyone in the area.
