It's the second Meza opened in Tooting by Hikmat Antippa, aged 31, who comes from Tyre in the Lebanon; He began his career working for Caprice Holdings at their flagship fish restaurant J Sheekey in London's West End, before leaving to start his first Meza next door to Tooting Bec Tube station.

It's a cheerful, family-friendly place, whose décor is rather thrown together – woven baskets on the wall, Lebanon-souk ruggery on the benches – but the food is very focused.

The menu offers cold meze, hot meze and eight main courses, and you soon discover nicely original touches in familiar dishes. Moutabal, a Lebanese version of baba ganoush, combined lovely smoked aubergine with tahini. Hummus Awarma introduced walnuts and diced bits of lamb to the nation's favourite dip.

    Great Middle Eastern alternative to 'tapas' in Tooting.

    We went at lunchtime and it was packed - a mix of ladies who lunch, local office/hospital workers and plenty of people popping in to collect their great deal lunchbox 'takeaways' (£6 per person).

    Great food and loved that you could see the chefs cooking the food in the kitchen.

    My only criticism is that it's quite a small dining area an you are rather 'up close and personal' with fellow diners. Not somewhere you would necessarily choose for a romantic or 'strictly confidential' conversation!

    Otherwise, couldn't fault it, the food or the staff!
