We visited here one Saturday lunchtime after being recommended by a good friend of ours. It was our first Mezze experience and have to say we were a bit apprehensive as although our kids will eat almost anything, my husband and I are about as fussy as you can get.
The menu is huge - even if you don't want the tapas there was a lunch menu, and a Xmas special menu aswell. So much choice. Anyway I insisted my husband and I do tapas and we ordered 3 each for £12 each. We both like very different foods. I had garlic king prawns, whitebait and hoisin duck something or other. My husband had more meaty choices - chicken casserole and beef stew etc. The kids had sesame chicken and a burger.
I always slate restaurants that give the kids 'cheap, crap food' and I was not disappointed with their meals here. Proper chicken pieces and proper beef burger and delicious chips were served to them - delicious. Our meals were great too. Don't think my husband would have tapas choice again as he likes to have potatoes or veg with the choices he had but didn't realise until they were in front of him. And for £12 each it wasn't a cheap choice so we wouldn't have wanted to add chips or veg on top.
All in all, a lovely atmosphere and lovely food. Pricy for lunchtime with the family but we would definitely consider returning and there are lots of other food choices to try.
