This Greek-Cypriot Primrose Hill staple has been here since I was born, so nearly three decades… The enormous restaurant is always packed full of people, from the leopard skin clad, botoxed ladies who lunch to families who enjoy the child-friendly atmosphere. I haven’t been in there since I was small and was half expecting to have my cheeks pinched by the owner accompanied by a “my hasn’t she grown!” But I guess I look a bit different now. Last night the meze starters were really tasty, from the smooth hummous to the tangy tarama salata, but the mains were overpriced for rather small portions. They did serve the largest scallops I’ve ever seen though, with fat orange coral still attached. Why anyone ever detaches that bit, I don’t know. What on earth do they do with it?
