There is a new greek restaurant in town, and this is not the one you have at 1am after your night out despite its name.

Suvlaki opened juste next to the iconic 24h place in the Brick lane, replacing the Swedish restaurant which was there for a few years.


What to find on the menu?

Small plates to share my friend! All the iconic Greek dishes you dream of, smaller, so you can have them all!


There are 4 sections you can pick your food from, and they recommend one per section each. Everything was super good, and I am pretty sad they ran out of Octopus and roasted aubergine! They were victim of their success! It is a good excuse to go back to try those dishes!


I often heard that you know how good a chef is by checking how he cooks the lamb; well, the chef at Suvlaki is definitely amazing! The lamb from the signature dishes section was amazing! Probably the best one I had since I moved to London.


You can feel the mediterranean hospitality with the amazing staffs. The are Greek (of course! this is authentic greek place) and they are lovely, polite, warm! They were not officially opened yesterday, so they were collecting feedbacks about the food and the service; this is a 10/10 from me!


Expect to pay with a bottle of wine around 30/40 per head, but it worths it.


SO grab your friends now, to be able to try as many dishes as possible!

Right next to the famous bagel stop, Brick Lane's new addition, Suvlaki, is a classy Greek restaurant despite what you may imagine with such a name. Sleek interiors (apparently designed by the guy behind the pink room in Sketch) and an innovative take on Greek cuisine, Suvlaki surprised me for the best. Special mention to the prawns in tomato and feta starter and the wild boar wrap, both to die for! A nice selection of Greek craft beers and wines complement the menu as well. They recommend 5 dishes to share for 2 people, I'd say more 6-7 if you go for the mini wraps but at £5 each dish on average, you will end up with a sweet bill of less than £20 per head. One little improvement note, the service isn't always well paced, we got our first dishes altogether almost too quickly and waited 40 minutes for the last one, it was the soft launch night though so busy night for them. Other than that, very much recommended, go treat yourself and discover this new gem on Brick Lane!
