What we loved: What’s not to love about Mezza? To start with, we loved their hummus they say it’s the best in town, and we sure do agree with them on that! Shrimp Provencale was full of flavor and very tasty. Coming to the mains, we LOVED both the white taok platter, which was perfectly cooked chicken taok that comes with bread & garlic, and then the grilled jumbo shrimp which was the absolute BEST we have eaten in a long time. The quantity of food is perfect. Moreover, as we have heard such great things about the homemade kunafa with akkawi cheese we thought of giving it a try and oh my, it just melts in your mouth and you cannot stop eating it. We were super filled after our mains but we had to finish this dessert, it was so delicious. We actually ordered the molten chocolate too (for desserts) and that was good too but nothing beats the Homemade Kunafa with Akkawi Cheese.

What we didn’t like as much: We didn’t really enjoy the fried calamari as it wasn’t like the usual crispy ones we have eaten, it’s more saucy as it’s made with their own spice(s) and maybe that’s why we didn’t like it as much but it really depends on personal taste. Another thing we didn’t like was the fact that every table was a bit too close to each other, this can get a bit too annoying at times.

What we recommend:

  • Hummus
  • Shrimp Provencale
  • Grilled Jumbo Shrimp
  • White Taok Plattor
  • Homemade Kunafa with Akkawi Cheese

 Ambiance: Full house.
