I went back to London last weekend and one of the places I had dinner at was Leon. I've now been to two of their branches, one at Bluewater and one near the Tate Modern but neither of their offerings worked for me. This time I ordered the dinner £9.95 deal which included a starter, two dishes and brown rice to top it off. I chose the hummus and flatbread starter and chose Morrocan meatballs and garlic and chilli broccoli. I also ordered a lemonade for £1.75 which tasted rather average. The flatbread with hummus was the best part of the meal in my opinion, though for the amount of hummus given I would have liked more flatbread. The broccoli was interesting though a little too uncooked for me whilst the Meatballs were quite average when supposedly it's their most famous dish. The brown rice was horrible, dry and tasteless.

Overall I do not have fond memories of Leon and don't plan on going back any time soon. If I'm around there next time I'll try Del'Aziz or Tsuru.
