I have heard/read good opinions of Yalla Yalla, Peckham Bazaar (menu changes), Andy's Taverna, Vrisaki, Konaki for restaurants, or you could try Phoenica Mediterranean Food Hall or Green Valley for takeaway.

For restaurants, I would recommend Konaki too but if you want to enjoy it at home, you'd better order at Delices & Gourmandises, or Donald Russell, they both have good reputation for quality mail order.

I've been hearing good remarks about Yalla Yalla but it is always busy people said. is it really the case?  My daughter and her husband will be back from New York next saturday, we use to go to the restaurant once they come in the Uk,maybe we will give a first try at Konaki. I didn't expect there are companies who are still working on mail order, my wife was addicted to this kind of process at her time unfortunately she is not there.I'd be grateful if you can remember me the process Jennifer.

Especially as you are in London, go with Donald Russell, which is local, and has a solid reputation. In addition to being based in Belgium (think shipping costs), Delices & Gourmandises has a history of some rather troubling accusations.

I can also prepare it instead of ordering food from unknown brand, thanks a lot Jennifer. Anyway, I found interesting recipes on Delices Gourmandises blog,  this one for example http://delicesandgou...carne-18983262/ I love that spicy dish.

I was looking for Lamb Moussaka recipe but didn't find any. I should have prepare it myself, don't you think Mjx?

Making the moussaka yourself would guarantee that it is fresh and of the quality you want, but your question in the OP, 'any recommendations of the best supplier in London?', suggested that you were looking for it ready-made. . . don't you think, Léo? ;)

 

If you make that recipe, do report on the results. I find the amount of ground hot chili recommended quite interesting.

Good grief! You want to order moussaka via mail order? Just get yourself a nice leg of lamb, spike it with garlic and rosemary and baste with a bit of olive oil - cook long and slow and enjoy a slap-up Greek style roast with roast potatoes and roast vegetables.

Refrigerate the leftover leg and mince the stripped-off meat for your moussaka when you are ready. It really is a simple dish that the Greeks traditionally made with the leftover roast. Just need some eggplant, spices and a few tomatoes to add to the minced lamb. Top off with a white cheese sauce with egg and bake until hot and the sauce is set and browned. Somewhere I have a recipe from a Greek lady who gave it to me in the 70's and which I have made many times. If you want a copy, I will dig it out and type it up for you. John.
