    This was my favourite restaurant but has gone downhill since February with new management. Took a party of 15 to celebrate the 3rd anniversary of my kidney transplant. I was looking forward to the meze and a pina or colada or two. The service was very slow and once the food order had been taken, about 15 minutes later another waiter came round to take the order again. Another wait but when the food arrive the calamari was not cooked, just soggy and one of the meze first course resembled raw mince in the inside. My food has to be well cooked to stop food poisoning. I was told they no longer did pina coladas and couldn't make me one specially as they had no coconut. The final straw was the £30 added to the bill for service, we didn't pay it.

    Have eaten at Meze Meze on a number of occasions and it never disappoints. Went with a large family group and the waiters were so friendly and attentive. The food was great and the meal was very relaxed. The place is so big that you never feel as though you are being listened to by the next table! Would definitely recommend.

    Where Meze Meze may not be an outstanding culinary experience, what it does it does well. Service was good, a bit slow with the coffees. Food was very good and the staff were very helpful. Enjoy what they do because they do it well.

    We went on Valentines evening, and were very pleased about both the setting and the food. The restaurant was busy but not overcrowded, and we weren't pushes at all so we had some extra time to enjoy the ambience. Simple but great decoration, and the live music definitely added to the valentine atmosphere. Well done!

    really like going to meze meze, however, it has changed quite considerably recently! The menu has changed slightly and also the take away menu doesn't have as much on it as it used to such as sautee which i loved!!! And on the takeaway menu you now have to pay extra for rice which personally i think is a joke! eating in is always good but where Meze Meze used to be quite competitive, i think they are now bordering on the expensive side especially for comparable local restaurants!

    We have been here a few times before on a fri or Saturday night, went last Saturday and service was seriously lacking. We were sat for ages waiting to be served, 3 tables who arrived after us were brought their drinks before our drinks order was even taken. Meat was very fatty, left most of it. Starters brought 5 mins apart, how hard is it to bring two plates at the same Time? Usually I would recommend, based on this visit I wouldn't return but Might give them another chance because previously been ok.

  • Meze Meze, Finchley - I booked

    Dined on 16/11/2013
    Meze Meze, Finchley - I booked this for my family who were over from Australia. For a Saturday evening it wasn't as busy as I would have expected. I ordered the Samra Beyti which is marinated minced in a special flat bread which the mince is wrapped in. I really enjoyed it and my cousin ordered the same and loved it, very flavoursome. The portions were a good size and we also ordered a few starters. Overall a good experience, good place for a quiet meal. Waiters are not over bearing. Nothing really special, also they close by 11pm which I am surprised at for a Saturday.

    My starters were cold! its a turkish resturant and they do not have turkish bread......pitta served. Small portions and high prices. The manager did not want to do anything when we complained the starters were cold. The waiters did not want to help and do anything about the poor service. sorry, will not recommend this resturant to anyone.

    I have been to meze meze on several occasions for dinner and have always been pleased with the quality of food/service I have received. The staff are friendly, the food is tasty, and the portions are very generous. I went most recently on a Thursday evening and there was a live jazz singer who was really good! I have also ordered takeaway for collection from the restaurant and it is always very good. I am so pleased to have such a nice restaurant nearby and I would definitely recommend it to friends and family.

    Food was OK, had a good time (down to the company) and it was good value. 4 of us ate starters and mains and had 3 bottle of wine for under £100. Service slow and had to ask for drinks 10 minutes after we first sat down and remind waitress for olives twice! The place was virtually empty so I dread to think what it would have been like if it was busy!

    Lovely place to have a big group. Not too busy on the Friday night. A bit noisy but this is expected. We got 25% the food bill which justified the portions. Have had larger portions for the price elsewhere. We didn't know until the end but if it is a birthday then tell them in advance any everyone in the party gets free coffee and a chocolate cake.

    We've been several times to this restaurant and we know what to expect and have never been disappointed by the quality Menu offers a good selection of dishes, well prepared and served with a smile. The piped background music is not obtrusive and they offer a well-stocked bar, albeit slightly over-priced when compared to general menu prices. Can get very busy on Friday and Saturday and although they always have extra staff to compensate, we prefer to go at quieter times for a more relaxed and leisurely dining experience. Excellent take-away service!

    Arrived on time,very busy,the table they had reserved for us theyd given to someone else so we were seated right at the back tucked in the corner between 2 large group bookings,and then left for half an hour,before I finally could get their attention and order our drinks(too long to wait for a drink! We were gasping) I think they then realised they had forgot us because the food arrived very quickly,before our drinks infact,the food is lovely but slightly pricey,Our bill for the 5 of us,including 9 drinks,4 being alcoholic,and no dessert or coffee came to £103.00,they had automatically put a service charge of 10%,which we asked to have removed.

    This is a very nice local restaurant. I have eaten there several times. The food is excellent, and the service was also very good. Nice friendly staff. The portions of food are extremely generous. I did not like the loud music and it was a little noisy, but younger people might appreciate that. It might be to do with the fact that the restaurant has very high ceilings and the sound travels, making it more noisy with everyone talking. We had a voucher this time so got 25% off on the deal of that particular day. We went mid-week, early evening. On the whole, a nice place to eat in.

    Good meal as usual at Meze Meze. We all ordered salmon kebabs. I substituted rice or chips with salad. My salad was tasty as well as colourful and crunchy. The service is very fast, there's no waiting around time for the food to arrive. The restaurant is huge and the staff really run around. They provide a good meal, which to me means it tastes fresh and is full of flavour. It's reasonably priced, tasty, and plenty of healthy choices on the wide menu. The atmosphere is good but I gave a star down as maybe a bit too big but then again, it would make a good venue for a party. .
