Primrose Hill's favorite Greek Cypriot, vine-decked and '80s-taverna-style Lemonia is large and light, and always packed with hoards of hungry hobo-chic locals. Besides an endless supply of Hellenic small-dish meze dips, hot breads, and starters, there are rustic mains like slow-baked kleftiko lamb in lemon, classic eggplant, Greek yogurt, and potato moussaka, herb-stuffed tomatoes, grilled prawns, calamari, souvalaki, and pleasing beef on the bone stewed
in red wine. Expect friendly Greek service and hospitality, plus bags of noise, an airy glass-domed atrium out the back, and the odd fly-by from the Jude Law Primrose Hill megastar set. Weekday set lunches are a piffling £12.50.

i have never had anything but a good time at lemonia. from the beginning of the meal in the airy dining room, with lemon and garlicked olves, through to the thick greek coffee at the end, lemonia is a great place in one of the lpve;iest parts of town. very good value.
