I have been here before, probably around 4 weeks prior to when this blog is dated.

I went with my girlfriend and best friend, that night I wasn’t too hungry but they really enjoyed the food so I was hungry tonight and decided to take a visit.

On entering here you have to go upstairs, this visit and last nobody was downstairs to say “just go up” which is ok if you know this if not you feel a little out of place just heading up.

Last visit we were seated to the right (where the booths are), tonight to the left where the little tables are….this is where tonight took a little bad turn.

Sitting down it was nice but not as nice as the booths area, and this is where my overall score drops instantly by 1 point.

The walls to my side look like someone threw their dinner on it, and the stains have been left for a very long time. It wasn’t loads, but it was enough that it really should have been painted!! This wasn’t good as a quick paint, would have fixed this (-1 point).

The Food…

Tonight I wanted to order a starter and a main, as last visit my best friend said his was really nice.

I saw they did a pre-theatre menu, so I opted for that £12.95

Drink

Mango Lassi

Unfortunately I didn’t catch the price of this, but I am guessing £3 or £4 (will fix once I find out). I am a big Mango Lassi fan, so I always try it wherever I go and tonight I did just that.

I have to say this was probably the best one I have had, so I am looking forward to having it again.

Portion Size : 5

Value for Money : 5

Starter

Chicken Pakora
Breast of chicken in spicy pakora batter.

On arrival this smelled and looked good, so it was time to dig in.

This was really nice, the flavour was good, the chicken was tender and the batter was just crispy.

I really enjoyed this and would have again.

Main

Chicken Rogan Josh

On arrival again this was another dish that smelled really good.

This was really really good, there was enough chicken, the sauce and flavour just perfect.

I would have this again.

Side

Pashwari Naan

On arrival it looked ok, and now it was time to taste as Pashwari is my fav naan.

Oh, this was not good! basically it was just a plain naan with the coconut etc lightly sprinkled on top.

There was no sweet filling, not even a little….I was very disappointed.

I wouldn’t order this again, not good guys!!

Overall

Overall it was a really mixed night, to starter and curry was very nice but the dirty walls and the naan was really bad.

I was really disappointed tonight, as the last visit my friends had a really nice meal and were seated in the booth area which was clean unlike tonight.

Will go back? not sure….

Sorry guys.

Tonight I needed a little walk first before dinner, as I wasn’t super hungry so I took a wee walk along Argyle Street.

I had heard of a place called Meze Meze opening in the West End and followed them on Instagram, but I didn’t pay attention to where and when…..and guess what I found it and it was just recently opened.

Looking Around

Inside its very nice, on the right side as you enter that is where the food is prepared and cooked and on the left is the tables.

I had no idea what to have tonight, so I thought randomly select something and see what its like.

Main Dish

Yaprak Donner £9.50
A famous Turkish dish 100% pure lamb donner served with fresh green salad

I took my first bite and WOW this was very tasty, perfectly cooked and could be super addictive.

This is all I had this night as I wasn’t mega hungry, but I could have easily had a second one.

Visit Overall :

I was very impressed with tonights food, and the staff were very friendly.

I didnt feel too full, or bloated after this I felt full enough which is good as I hate walking out of places feeling too stuffed.

I am aiming to return to try a few more dishes, so watch this space.

Tonight I wanted to take another place off my list, and try somewhere new and here is where I chose.

I have passed here a few times when taking a walk around this area…now it was time to go in.

Looking Around

IMG_7707

Inside has a very cool look, and vibe to it. Tonight was very busy, so it was a little loud with everyone talking over everyone, but I sat over at the window and enjoyed people watching.

The Food…

I really wanted to try something other than a burger and here I spotted did hot dogs, so I looked for one that sounded really good and ordered it.

Main

Jamaican Hot Dog £7.95
Slow cooked pulled pork, bbq sauce, house slaw & Mango Mayo

IMG_7712

As soon as it arrived this looked and smelled really good, so it was time to dig in…but where do I start?

I resorted to using a knife and fork, and ohhh this was very good every bite of the hot dog was very very good.

The chips were just ok, needed some salt but thats my opinion.

Overall

Tonight I am glad I visited another new place, as I really liked the look inside and enjoyed my meal.

I really enjoyed my hotdog tonight, and I will aim to go back to try some of the other ones on the menu.
