Meals and Drink
The starters are the place to search for a mezze model meal. We ordered the falafel balls, tabouleh, moussaka and pulled beef to share between the 2 of us. All was correctly for a meze of this type and well-executed. The pulled beef was tender and spicy and the falafel balls mild and crispy and got here with a tahini dip.
The principle dishes we selected had been the lamb shawarma and rooster. We had been anticipating tender slices of marinated roast lamb however what arrived was a bit of dry. Then again, the rooster dish was effectively spiced and tender.
