Mouthwatering Mediterranean cuisine in historical broadway market..you will enjoy
mediterranean breakfast, steak, angus burger and more...

Really surprised by these reviews. I love a good plate of menemen after a heavy night. Maybe its best to stick with the Greek classics here?

Baked beans was spoilt for breakfast tasted very nasty I gave them a chance again to buy risotto there it tasted like it had been cooked for a week tasted nasty nothing I bought there ever been fresh its a shame cause the place is nice but the workers are rude and the food always has something wrong with it

Went in on a Saturday as there was plenty of seating space and looked like a good spot. What a mistake. We ordered 3 slices of carrot cake and teas. The waitress said the carrot cake was freshly brought in that morning. Our order came along fast enough and all was going fine until I came across a big long hair in my cake & it put me off and I flagged it with the waitress who didn’t apologise or suggest another slice. We thought that they wouldn’t charge us for that slice out of common courtesy but we were wrong… When the waiter came up to take our bill, I pointed out that there was a hair in my cake and if we could not pay for the slice (£3.75). He immediately got aggressive, raising his voice and said we had to pay for it all. Then he suggested the hair was mine as ‘the barman makes the cakes look how short his hair is, so that can’t be hair then can it??’ Luckily I’m pretty goddamn ginger and the hair being blond, it could hardly have been mine. He was forced to admit he was lying about the barman as the waitress had told us a supplier delivered their cakes. He admitted this and reverted to his original aggressive tone telling me to pay for everything like a scratched record. Twice he went off to get the manager whom we never saw, but we could hear the loud muttering of the waiters making fun of us loudly enough so we could hear them across the room. The third time the charming waiter came up, he told me my 2 choices were to buy an extra slice or pay for the hairy one. By that point, he had been so aggressive and that I turned down his generous offer, which I might have accepted had the waitress suggested it in the first place. I had to explain to him that hair in food just isn’t normal or hygienic or what people pay for in restaurants and and that his attitude was completely messed up and that I wasn’t going to pay and that was final. Eventually a new bill was printed and we paid for the rest, and left to the sound of the smart waiters bitching about us across the room. It’s a shame that such a hole of a restaurant full of rude staff is in such a good location.
