Me, my wife and a few friends were due a catch-up and Harissa had a menu that catered for all tastes. I have been meaning to visit the restaurant for a while and this was a perfect opportunity.
Me and my wife went for the Meat Mezze accompanied with the Crispy Okra and Slow Cooked Heritage Carrots. The Mezze was very well presented with the stand out elements being the lentil tabbouleh and humus, both were delicious and full of flavour. However, the kofta, falafel and spring rolls were a bit lacking in seasoning and spice compared to the other elements. This was also the same for the slow cooked carrots, not much flavour and just a texture, given how they were sourced, I thought their flavour should have been more pronounced. The Okra on the other was one of the best dishes I’ve had containing the vegetable, they had a bit of crunch and the seasoning was perfect. We finished with ‘Wor Lotty Plums’ which was a confusion of flavours comprising of a mint méringue and very acidic plums.
The service was polite, friendly and casual making it apt for the style of food. The interior is modern, cosy and an ideal space to drink and eat while chatting with friends and family. So worth considering if you don’t want a busy noisy restaurant but remember to reserve a table.
Harrisa is a great healthy restaurant but a bit pricey for what you get. For the price paid, there are better alternatives in the city. I would go back for drinks and light bites but if you are going to spend this sort of money, go to The Patricia.
