“Unexpected Gem on the Bethnal Green Road”
Reviewed 28 June 2013

We bumped into the restaurant while searching for a light lunch on our way between Columbia Road market and the Tube on a cold Sunday afternoon. One of our party had a very tasty lentil soup which came with lovely flatbread, while the rest of us had various wraps - all of which were very flavoursome. The restaurant is not licenced but I think allowed BYO (you'd better check that if you plan to take booze) and had a range of non-alcoholic beers, wines and spirits including a very refreshing non-alcoholic pear cider. Apparently Meshwi is Arabic for meat on the grill, and we will definitely return to test out the grill menu. The place is decorated in a contemporary style that manages to mix in Islamic mosaics. Downstairs there is as much space again for diners as there is upstairs. The staff were very friendly and efficient. Overall a great find.
