The majority of London's so-called 'Greek' restaurants are run by Greek-Cypriots. This island's cooking style tends to be meatier than the cooking you find in the Greek islands or Greek mainland and has a recognisably Middle Eastern slant. As a result, souvlaki (grilled meat on skewers) are a mainstay of the cuisine. At Pomegranate, the restaurant serves no-frills souvlakia. Choose from chicken, lamb or pork and it will come to you fresh from the grill on a bed of red onion and topped with a flurry of fiercely peppery wild rocket. Supplement the meal with a signature pomegranate cocktail (a lot more potent than it tastes), top-notch range of meze, fresh-tasting taramasalata or tzatziki and delightfully chewy pita bread. Pomegranate labels itself as 'fusion' Greek food, but we saw nothing out of the ordinary; they're better off boasting of their well-rendered classics.
