Jimmy Grants

We were pondering what to have for lunch when we walked past Jimmy Grants and noticed that it was very quiet so we thought we would give it a try. Jimmy Grants has a blue and white theme and is quite small with limited seating. We studied the menu and I decided to have ‘The Patris ($9.80) - prawns, honey, mayo, cucumber, mint, and coriander’ and my dining companion picked the ‘Nonna Maria ($8.50) - chicken, mustard aioli, chips, onion, and parsley’. Other souvas include the ‘Homer ($7.50) - falafels, Greek yoghurt, and Hellenic slaw’ and the ‘Mr Papadopoulas ($9.50) lamb, mustard aioli, chips, onion, and parsley’. There are also salads and snacks such as the ‘Grain Salad ($8.50) pulses, nuts, grains, herbs, Greek yoghurt’ and the ‘Steamed Jimmy Dimmy x 3 ($7.50)’.


Once we decided what we wanted, I went over to order but the guy seemed very bored indeed. He mumbled something and took my money so I assumed that the order had been placed. We took a seat on some mini stools at a mini table and waited for our order. The girl that brought over our souvas was much more pleasant. Only one plate was provided for both souvas which resulted in things getting a little bit messy... It was difficult to fit our food on our mini table as it been taken over by vessels containing cutlery and serviettes. Not one of the most enjoyable dining experiences that I have had...

Anyway, back to the food. The Patris was pretty good. The pita was lovely and fluffy and the fresh herbs gave vibrancy to the dish. The five prawns were cooked well. However, I found it a little too sweet for my palate.

The Nonna Maria was pretty underwhelming and a bit stodgy compared with my souva. Neither of us were a big fan of this one.

We considered ending our meal with some ‘Greek doughnuts, walnuts, and honey ($6.00)’ but instead decided to head over to Gelato Messina which is just around the corner...
