Tried this place for the first time as it had good reviews. Unfortunately I was disappointed with my experience. Whilst finishing my order at the checkout it said that I will receive free dessert as I have spent over £20. I was excited to see what dessert would be given to me. On arrival the dessert was not placed in... More

I was having a few friends round for my birthday and decided to order Lebanese takeaway. I was worried about the size of the order and the fact that it was to be delivered at their busiest time on a Saturday night. But they were amazing from start to finish. Joseph, the manager, made sure that we had everything we... More

I ran out of battery on my phone - Joseph let me charge it and went out his way to get a new charger when the old one broke! He was great with customers and a friendly chap. Thank you Joseph!

My wife and I were taking my niece and her husband out to celebrate her 30th birthday. We were doing an evening at London Zoo (adults only) which is well worth doing, lots of entertainment, animals, bars and food stalls of all types. Anyway, back to Mezza Depress. We wanted a late lunch i.e 2.30pm so my wife rang the... More

This restaurant is absolutely lovely, the staff leave you in peace to eat and don't try to rush you out of the door the second you're finished but are around if you need them. Polite hosts, nice atmosphere and the food is gorgeous and very reasonably priced for what you get. I've read some bad reviews about here but we've... More

Avoid this place at all costs! We booked it as we were going to a show in Camden roundhouse at 10pm and lebanese is usually quick service and suitable for vegetarians. Horrenous decor when we walked in- the bathrooms are gross. I was embarassed to have booked it. We arrived at 8pm and had to wait until 8.20 before anyone... More

Popped in here 2 weeks as we like Lebanese food and were in the area. The décor and ambiance should have told us everything. The humus must have been from a container, not home made, the main course of chicken and my mixed grill was dry, looked unappealing and the portion size was small. All that for £30 a head,... More

Description
When Mezza Express & Grill first opened in 2006, the owners had one guiding idea: to create a restaurant which brought all the traditions of Lebanese hospitality, ambiance and cuisine to Camden Town. Head chef crafted a menu which uses only the freshest and best quality ingredients to reproduce the dishes his grandmother cooked for him as a child. He wanted to recapture the warmth and atmosphere of his family kitchen, bring it to London, and share with new friends and old what authentic Lebanese dining means to him. It is one of his principles that the food he creates should be shared and enjoyed, and it is for this reason that Mezza Express & Grill operates on a principle of affordability, without compromising on quality.Meanwhile, there was designed a welcoming dining area inspired by Lebanese art and architecture, using simple stone arrangements embedded into the walls of the dining area to recreate the idea of the Lebanese landscape. Owner found himself reminiscing with customers and friends about the chawarmas (pita meat wraps) and grilled meat or fish dishes his grandmother would make for his family when he was a child. [Head chef] attempted to recreate the dishes using English cooking equipment, but the results were never quite the same as the tasty, aromatic food he recalled, so the owner arranged for a traditional, charcoal Lebanese indoor grill to be shipped to Britain so he could re-create and share the dishes of his youth. Now the grill has arrived and been installed and we all look forward to finally being able to pay homage to their grandmother's recipes by sharing with you the food they love.

Staying in Camden

Neighbourhood Profile
Camden
Famous for its sprawling cluster of markets and shops as well as for an embrace of all things counter culture, Camden offers a concentrated version of London street life. From bargain shopping and people watching to rubbing elbows in its abundance of pubs and bars, Camden is the place to be for many a Londoner. It is also home to some of the hottest live music venues in Europe. As packed as Camden High Street and its tributaries can get during the weekends, this neighbourhood is right next to some of the city's most beloved outdoor spaces, namely Regent's Park and Primrose Hill.
