Satisfy your Greek food cravings without having to cross oceans

This post will send your taste palette on an ethnic adventure around London’s very own #Richmondrow. Your bank account is probably stopping you from packing your bags and hopping on a plane, but the good news is that you can still enjoy delicious ethnic food that is conveniently close, while settling for the mediocre views that London has to offer.

Dimi’s Greek House 

This restaurant is truly a gem in our city that actually transports you to Greece. They created a wonderful ambience in a relatively small space with clean and colourful tiled walls, bright lights hanging from wooden beams and couch like seating along the walls with beautiful cushions.

They serve up authentic Greek food and large portions, while the friendly staff create a very welcoming vibe.

When it comes to the food, you can taste the exceptional flavours of Greece coming through all the dishes. My favourite appetizers include the flaming saganaki cheese, (totally instastory material) as well as greek fries and beef short ribs.

The chicken souvlaki dish comes with a skewer of chicken, rice or fries, potatoes and broccolini along with a side of in house made tzatziki dip. They also offer a complimentary basket of fresh soft bread with virgin olive oil and balsamic for dippingand warmed pita with most dishes.

The space may be small, but the environment is fun, loud and full of laughter. I would love to hear about your experience here and what dishes really hit home for you!

  1. I’ve been dying to try out Dimi’s since I first saw it while walking down Richmond Row in the summer, though I’ve been waiting to see a couple reviews before heading in. You had me hooked from the first paragraph with your recommendation of the food. Thanks for adding pictures of the dishes! It’s really helpful for understand portion sizes and ratios. I think I’ll go check Dimi’s out (finally).
