About Halloumi Southside
More vegan options please.
When I arrived I was greeted quickly and shown to table. Given a la carte and 5pm menus. I waited for the rest of my party to arrive, whilst doing so I was asked if I would like a drink.
We ordered drinks and food 3 plates each for £14.95.
I expected the food to arrive together but it came in no particular order. We got our pitta and dips 1st, and a grill chicken for one of my friends. Next our chips with grated halloumi arrived. Next moussaka (veg) times 2 was brought to table, we ordered lamb. Waiter said no veg, we said no we ordered lamb, no apology, he then took them back, then came back and said we are just making them. We waited further then they arrived with 2 chicken slouvakis, we were waiting on 3! Further wait again.
Overall we enjoyed the food and drinks, the ambience was good, I would return to see if any different next time, as it is right on my doorstep.
Greek restaurant in Strathbungo
The sister restaurant to the original Halloumi restaurant in Glasgow city centre, Halloumi Southside aims to take the winning formula of Greek/Cypriot mezze served in a bright airy setting, south of the river.
Located in buzzing Pollokshaws Road, the restaurant is housed in a former bank and mimics the style of a traditional Greek taverna, with white brick walls and tiled flooring, with stylish additions like a marble bar and exposed bulb lighting.
Greek mezze dishes
The dishes at Halloumi are served in small, mezze style portions designed for sharing (equally, it’s perfectly acceptable to eat them all yourself).
All the Greek favourite can be found on the menu, including Greek salad, gyros, moussaka, dolmades, and souvlaki.
There’s also modern updates to traditional Greek food, like halloumi fries and feta tempura.
Separate sections for Greek dips, such as taramasalata and tzatziki, and seafood dishes like king prawns with chilli and garlic and swordfish steak, can also be found on the menu.
With an express lunch menu, a pre-theatre and a full a la carte, Halloumi has plenty of options designed to meet diners’ varied requirements.
