We were a bit of a nuisance arriving into this rather small Rose Street space hotfoot from Waverley Station with suitcases and rucksacks. But the management not only found us a table but also storage space for our luggage. At lunchtime pricing is a bit confusing. Each person can choose a minimum of three meze from a list for £11.95. Or for the same price for a minimum of two people the management will choose five cold and five hot meze. Presumably for more people the portions get larger. Two of us shared the meze cold including hummus tzatziki dolmades (stuffed vineleaves) and salads coming first, followed by hot sausage slices, chickpea falafel, soggy calamari, thin pencils of borek with feta cheese and oregano as well as crisp patatas bravado. My wife shared chicken skewers as a main with our daughter complaining the meat was a bit dry but this could have been compensated by the yoghurt dressing. A trio of deserts including crime brûlée baklava and a chocolate mousse as a substitute for profiteroles proved the highlight of the meal. Espressos were better than most. Posters ornamenting the walls hailed from much further north, in fact, Parisian nightclubs.

I did book a table about an hour or so before arriving as I thought it might be busy, it's not the biggest of places so I would recommend booking ( although there were a few walk ins who got tables easily).

We chose 5 dishes between two people and that was plenty along with the free bread and Hummus. If you're unfamiliar with the cuisine the meze feast would be a good way to try different dishes ( albeit smaller portions). Dishes were around the £5 mark but were pretty sizeable.
Service was quick and the staff friendly.
Definitely recommend

We turned up on bank holiday with 11 hungry mouths to feed including gluten free, dairy free and a nut allergy! Meze meze went out of their way to accommodate us and met all our dietary requirements. The food was fantastic and well priced. The tzatziki in particular was mint

Some nice dishes -loved the Babaganoush, hummus. Great drumsticks and turkish sausage. Not so keen on vine leaves -served chilled. Helpful, friendly staff.
