An absolute gem caught in-between the gnashers of Soho’s steadily more samey streets; Suvlaki cheerily offers Modern Greek dining at its best.
The 34 seat grill house is seemingly set up for dates or for dinners with your nearest and dearest, as the chairs and walk-ways are all in close radius, encouraging closeness but with no slush or cringe-factor.
The unique concept serves up lunch-times bites through to dinners and even has the take away option… if you like to enjoy Greek delights Al Desko that is.
The menu was built by Greek celebrity chef Elias Mamalakis who has brought the authenticity of Greece to Soho. Taking on the baton from Elias Mamalakis, Alfred Prasad has joined the team as Consultant Chef and in tow has added a multitude of dishes to an already wonderful menu.
We were invited to sample the new items on the menu which spanned across Ouzo Snacks, Sides, Main Dishes and Desserts.
We started the proceedings with a couple of interesting small plates including the Grilled Mastelo cheese with fig marmalade as well as Pulled Pork Crostini with succulent pork collar and red wine which was served with toasted pita.
For the main course we were delighted to be recommend the Suvlaki Exuberance which let us pretty much sample a little bit of everything including some very juicy meat skewers.
On the side we tried the Chickpea Salad with cucumber and Kalamata olives, which was decorated with pomegranate seeds as well as an extremely gorgeous baked feta dish will come with cherry tomatoes and red onions.
Rounding things off pretty sensationally we tried Suvlakis new dessert aptly named “Samos to Soho” which is a delicious Cheesecake which concludes the menu with the taste of Greece.
A real pocket of joy in the heart of Soho, the grill house’s new menu is an addition Soho had been longing for.
