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.

I have been to Mezze before see HERE and HERE for my previous reviews.

I have enjoyed the past few visits here, so I was looking forward to going back.

For me this is a very nice restaurant, that has a very relaxing feel to it plus if you get to sit near the window it add that little extra to your visit.

The Food :

Tonights visit I used a recent purchase from Itison, it was 4 tapas and a glass of wine for two and it was only £19 which is really good.

IMG_0577.jpg

To start with we ordered some Rose wine, which was very nice and very moreish.

Turkish Style Kofta Kebab £n/a

IMG_0578.jpg

I have recently stared liking kebabs more, so when I saw this dish I thought lets try it as I’ve never tried it here yet.

Presentation wise this looked very nice, and the smell from it wow!

This was very nice, I really liked all the flavours and it didn’t get boring with every mouthful.

Portion Size : 5
Value for Money :  N/A
Flavour : 4

Seafood Saganaki £N/A (but this was with a little extra charge as wasn’t in the deal options)

IMG_0583 

This dish sounded amazing so I didn’t mind paying a little extra for it, since it wasn’t part of the deal.

WOW WOW WOW amazing!!

The fish taste was there, but not in a strong way and the sauce was really good. Normally with dishes like this the sauce smell and taste, overpowers the fish taste but this was perfect.

If I wasn’t getting full, I would have had another one.

In one word “amazing”

Portion Size : 5

Overall :

Just like my past 2 visits everything was perfect, the service, atmosphere and especially the food.

Guys and gals if your reading this, please do take a visit to Mezze I promise you that you won’t be disappointed.

Visit Date : 17th March 2017

So the previous bloggers night, I decided to book for tonight as I was seeing a show at the SECC and I liked the food so it was a win win situation.

Tonight I arrived and were seated in the same seats as last nights blogger event, so another evening with a nice view. Again just like last night, the atmosphere was very relaxing and I was looking forward to trying some there dishes Mezze has to offer.

Starter :

Lamb Keftedes £5.40
meatballs – tomato sauce

IMG_6203

I never had this at the blogger event, so night I wanted to order different dishes so I could see if the others were just as nice as last nights.

This was a nice portion, though I am not sure if this was for two or just for one as we ordered two and only got the one dish. If this was for one, then it was very good value for money.

The flavour was nice, the meatballs were nice on their own but adding the sauce helped bring out the flavour.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 4
Presentation : 4

Main :

Calamari with Tarator Dip £5.90

IMG_6205

I love Calamari and get very disappointed by a restaurant if they don’t do it right, some places are nice but the taste is bland where others its too chewy but they have the taste.

On arrival I liked the presentation, it looked very nice and appealing to the eyes.

To taste, this was very nice. The calamari was not chewy and the batter was perfect, the dip added to the flavour very nicely and I really enjoyed this.

Overall :

I did order a sweet, but what it arrived I noticed it contained nuts. The menu description didn’t mention this which was a shame as if did I would have ordered something else.

This day and age with some many allergies I think it would have been better to mention this, even if the waitress or waiter that night asked “are you ok with nuts as it contains it”.
