Pide Hut – Lyneham

We got take away from here – it is not the usual place we go to for Turkish food, but we were really looking for pizza, and the pizza place was closed. We ordered dips – humous, tzaziki and carrot and bread. The humous was like paste and had a strange flavour – too much tahini I think. The bread and other dips were ok, but nothing special. We ordered two large pides – a super vegetarian and a mantarli (mushroom) with a bit of chilli. They were ok – certainly nothing to rave about, but I couldn’t eat any more after finding something very hard in one of the pieces I was eating. I spat it out and it appeared to be a small rock. I figured that was a bit of bad luck, but the next bite I took also had something hard in it, so I decided not to bother. Given that and the fact that they were nothing to rave about, we felt that it certainly wasn’t worth keeping the leftovers for a later lunch as we would normally do. I do like to try new places, but sometimes, it is good to stick with what you know is good – I’ll certainly be doing that with regard to Turkish food in the future…
