London is a bustling city, chock full of many diverse cuisines, and while Greek food may be well represented in the capital, there’s one delicacy that has street food fans raving. Using a top-secret recipe and quality ingredients, Neofytos and Efthymios have delivered authentic souvlaki to the masses since they launched in 2014. Today, their efforts have paid off, making them known as one of the top spots for casual dining out in London, with restaurants across London.
The vibrant multipurpose venue, White City Place is where hungry Greek food lovers will find The Athenian. Commuters will find it’s one of the most conveniently-located restaurants in London, just steps away from White City, Wood Lane and Shepherd’s Bush tube stations. While visitors will find it on the way to attractions such as the O2 Empire, Shepherd’s Bush Market and Westfield Shopping Centre.
Tailor-made for eating on the go and informal meals, The Athenian would make a wise choice for families looking to eat out in London with the kids after a trip to Westfield Shopping Centre. The trendy eatery is decorated simply, with a minimalist, warehouse theme and outdoor seating. There are also many bench seats, giving it a communal dining feel, which adds to its buzzing atmosphere.
Like many Greek restaurants, meat is well represented with tasty souvlaki skewer options such as pork souvlaki, ground lamb and beef and juicy chicken. Fans of doner kebabs will also love their gyros, which are created with homemade pita. Veggies haven’t been left out either, and can nosh on grilled halloumi, seitan, vegan burgers and courgette fritters. And to make it a proper meal, their oregano fries will surely satisfy.
Whether diners are tucking into a hearty gyro or classic pork souvlaki, The Athenian is guaranteed to hit the spot. Any occasion will be even more of a treat for tastecard members who can enjoy exclusive restaurant savings when they call to book ahead and present their cards upon arrival. It’s a good chance to treat themselves to another round of drinks, extra halloumi in their wraps or some of their sweet potato fries.
