Great food as ever at Halloumi South side. Helpful waiting staff for friend with allergies. Had to ask a couple of times for things that belonged together (no veg sticks for dip) and I think the tables are small if you do end up with 3 dishes each as they recommend, but food is so good that these points are minor.

Great food. Staff were very friendly however need more folk working as no one came back to take our coffee order and we had to chase the bill. Would return despite this as overall a great experience and despite being busy staff couldn’t have been nicer!

Good food although slightly over priced. The atmosphere was good and everything about the place was very welcoming and I will definitely be back. I think they have to have a look at the prices for some of their prices. Overall very good and enjoyable.

Had heard about this from reading a review from a prominent restaurant reviewer. Restaurant is very nice inside with a good feel about it. Service friendly and efficient. Food was good but not spectacular. Meatballs very tasty but not hot enough. Calamari a little greasy and a little chewy. Gyros good but a little hard to eat. Sea bream not seasoned well enough. Halloumi salad ok but lacked a dressing. Coffee very good. Was expecting more given the very positive review I had read. It's a nice restaurant but for me it wasn't spectacular.

Food was nice but waiter was clearly wanting home... after the meal when we asked for cocktail menu his face fell! We had another cocktail then he brought bill over, saying ‘you’s won’t be wanting another cocktail so I’ve brought bill over so we can cash up!’ Not, would you like another cocktail! There was still another party in and it was only about 10pm on a Thursday night... the food was fine but this particular experience would put me off returning. Very rude and put a dampener on the evening... a waiter who started the evening to be very helpful and personable to being unprofessional, rude and had clearly lost interest!

We booked for midday but the restaurant was closed due to a problem with the door lock and us and all the staff were outside unable to gain access. Not anyone’s fault but we eventually got in to the restaurant. It was obviously cold, not set up, ovens not on etc. We were ignored while they got organised, eventually someone took our drinks order and it was 1pm before they could serve us any food. The management did not acknowledge us and not even an offer of a complimentary drink or a bowl of olives to keep us happy until they could serve our hot food. Not anyone’s fault, these things happen but keep your customers happy Halloumi! Food was good but manager was not very gracious regarding the incident. Probably won’t be back.

First time in Halloumi. We enjoyed the food, some of which was excellent, some just good. The service was good and waitress seemed very friendly, but we actually couldn't make out a lot of what she was saying due to the noise level. She did have a fairly soft voice, but even so, she would have had to actually shout at us to make herself heard. So I'm not entirely sure what she was telling us when we first arrived. We were lucky and got a 4 person table, even though it was just the 2 of us. Halloumi serves small plates and they recommend 3 per person (which we found to be just about right). But had there been 4 of us at that table, there's no way it could have fitted more than the 6 dishes we shared. Main complaint is the level the music is played at, though. We didn't find it conducive to enjoying a meal out. It definitely felt more like eating in a noisy bar, rather than a restaurant. Which is a shame, because some of the food was exceptional- the lamb chops and the swordfish were particularly good.

We really like Halloumi a great addition to the Southdide. The food is excellent and a good atmosphere. Our only wish was that we could stay at the table longer. We had a 2 hour slot but would have ordered desert and more drinks given more time. I know this happens in all busy restaurants , I just wish it didn’t . Isn’t an issue during the week.Still a great place to go, looking forward to our next visit.

One waiting staff for the whole restaurant at lunchtime I think. I did see a girl milling about but didn’t seem to be doing much! We ordered from the 3 dishes for under £10 menu. The big problem is that the dishes don’t come altogether so by the time my 3rd dish turned up cold, I had finished the other 2 dishes! I could see my dish sitting on the kitchen counter getting cold and that is because the place was understaffed!

Excellent food, friendly staff, nice decor, and on good bus route. Kebabs were outstanding. Halloumi fries are lovely, but steep £7? Big portion, but unless there’s 4 of you, only half are eaten. Suggest £4, for smaller portion, they’re also not nice/hard, once they’ve cooled. Back soon!
