“just about awful”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

really as bad as it can be

I rarely complain in a restaurant- never have to but this place is just terrible

Had the meze starters - greasy undercooked potatoes - smelt like stale fat - meat just thrown onto the plate unseqsoned and dry

then had prawn - shells were left on with heads and tentilces all over the place - no effor made to prepare properly or present properly

_ complained and was ignored - didn't eat and was still charged full prive

I refused to pay and have never done this in any place before

“Give this a miss.”
Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

We had the meze type menu with 4 dishes each, the food was greasy, tasteless and the service was very poor and slow. The potato dishes were just like greasy fried spuds with unseasoned meat on top, the pastry parcels had far too much pastry and we got told the fish dishes we ordered were not available 25 minutes after we ordered. In total it took 40 minutes before we got served while 3 other tables that came in after us all got served. Very poor experience and we won't be back.

“Impressed”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

Ive eaten lunch here twice and loved it. Extraordinary flavours in Lebanese food. Lunch menu is particularly good value at e9.50 for a wide choice of mains and table service. Full bar also. 4 of us ate 2-3 courses plus coffee wine and pre lunch drinks for under e100- great value- it was valentines day- hence the booze at lunchtime! Will go back for an evening meal- lovely ambience.

“Just okay.”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

We had a 3 course meal here. The starters were tasty but the salad garnish wasnt fresh and presentation was poor. Mains were tasty but again presentation was lacking and overall it just didnt feel like it was spiced to real lebanese standards. Dessert was very good. Overall the food was decent but not worth the cost and could do with more flavour and definitely some presentation skills.Didnt feel the atmosphere or decor were anything out of the ordinary either.

“Not spicy enough”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

My personal favourite is a good kebab or shawarma, I just simply love it. But I was disappointed at Mejana. The food was same standard as street food, but in a fine dining package and at restaurant prices. The food was also too bland for my taste and not really Middle Eastern/Lebanese.
