The Leon restaurant chain was designed to offer something a bit different to other fast food establishments...good, healthy food with Mediterranean flavour.
"...we asked ourselves: why can't fast food be good food? We opened Leon because we wanted to prove that it was possible to serve food that both tastes good and does you good. We want to make it easy for people to eat well on the high street. When we looked around for inspiration, we were drawn to the richness, flavours and natural healthiness of Mediterranean cooking. We base our food around the Mediterranean diet, meaning our menu focuses on fruits and vegetables, whole grains, seeds and unrefined cereals."
Within a few minutes of ordering, our food was ready. Mine was presented in an attractive box and Miss K's was wrapped in foil. My falafel were topped with grilled red peppers, served on a bed of rice and accompanied by a fresh, herby salad. Miss K's wrap was packed full of grilled halloumi and tasty salad with aioli dressing. We also tried some baked lattice 'fries' and had a bottle of zingy, still lemonade to drink.
Service was polite, friendly and efficient and the restaurant was very bright and clean. The only negative was that the door was left propped open the whole time we were there, which made it quite chilly on a cold, wet day in February!
I was offered two free meals at Leon, in consideration for a review . All views expressed are genuine.
