During lockdown Taka Taka (via Deliveroo) has been one of our "go to" delivery companies. You can't fault them on speed (normally about 20 mins) and the quality and temperature of the food.
So, when they got in touch and invited us to visit and try out some of the new items on their recently revamped menu, we jumped at the chance.
Social distancing measures in place and being adhered to, the staff were upbeat, polite and efficient despite it being one of the hottest days of the year.
The new illuminated menu screens are really eye catching, everything clearly laid out and explained, it makes choosing your food easier although it's a tough choice as everything looks so good.
We opted to try the new Magic Rolls, (£5.50 small, £6.70 large) we chose the Jaadu Khana which consists of pulled chicken, halloumi, tabbouleh, red onion, mango and pineapple salsa, cabbage, hot chilli and mint and yoghurt dressing and the O'Piratka - Lamb, hummus, spinach, cabbage, halloumi, feta, mushrooms, hot chilli and peppered mayonnaise.
The flavour combinations were a taste sensation, we shared half of each, my personal favourite being the O'Piratka as I love feta and halloumi, and my husband loved the Jaadu Khana as it was so spicy and the chicken was so tender.
We also ordered the new Halloumi Super Salad Bowl. Totally delicious chargrilled halloumi, with toasted pita bread, tomatoes, cucumber, spinach, cabbage, red onion, couscous and a gorgeous balsamic dressing. The chargrilled flavour on the halloumi was utterly gorgeous. We snuck in a portion of fries, crispy, tasty, lots of them, and a sprinkling of oregano.
In store there is also a lovely deli area where you can pick up authentic Greek delights such as olives, Lays crisps and olive oil. There is a small seating area, but it's currently closed and will be reopening soon. The great thing about the deli is that you can order these items on Deliveroo as well, so you can stock up on your favourites whilst getting a delivery.
In summary, we highly recommend Taka Taka. We always order the Chicken Gyros, so it was great to try something different. The Magic Rolls are action packed, brimming with fillings, and are a meal in themselves. The salad was so tasty, fresh and light, and a real taste of Greece. We will definitely be adding these to our next order, which will probably next week!
