I decided to go back to Mezze again as I was seeing a show at the SECC Hydro, and my last 3 visits to Mezze were amazing so I couldn’t wait.

I went online and placed a reservation, and after work drove here.

On arrival I was around 30 mins early, but decided to go in and see if it was OK or if I had to wait that would have been OK. I was lucky that there were a few seats available, and were seated at the tables near the booths.

I was really looking forward to this….then I saw the menu that was put out…..Street-food menu huh? where was the vast menu I had in the past? Little disappointed I thought, OK will just order a few dishes…

I kinda knew what I wanted but these options were just so so, but I thought OK lets ask what the dessert is tonight so I know how much to order or to be good and leave room. I was told tonight they only were doing one dessert, and unfortunately it contained nuts which I couldn’t take so that made my mind up.

I also asked if the Gyros came with the chips, and was told no! huh? I have had several here in the UK, Greece and Romania and chips are kinda part of it but I thought OK lets order a side of chips.

This was turning in to a hmm night….lets see how the food was.

The Food…

Pork Gyros £7.50

served with open pita, salad, tzatziki

Oh! I know its street food, but this was small and more salad than pork and definitely didn’t resemble my previous Gyros e.g here is one I had in Greece.

The Gyros I had in Greece

Nothing similar apart from the pita really. I did eat my side order of chips, which were nice, sorry no pic as I was too bummed with my Gyro.

Don’t get me wrong it was nice, but size, cost and since it didn’t fully resemble a Gyros I have had in the past it was kinda just a hmm

Overall :

Overall I was so excited to go back, what has happened to an amazing restaurant with amazing food? has it been taken over?

The Gyros was far too costly for what you got, and where were the chips in it?

My girlfriend and I both were so disappointed and both said where was the Mezze that we once knew and we both said we probably wont be returning.

This is the first restaurant in a while I will be removing from my top spot, sorry guys but what happened?

Final point, just because I had a bad experience tonight and because I was comparing it to my last visits don’t let this put you off. I was speaking to another couple, and it was their first time and they enjoyed it.
