Best Cop Sis in South London

It's all about the lamb at Meze Mangal - if you're going for the first time and don't know what to have, just get the Cop Sis right at the top of the mains list - I seriously doubt you'll be disappointed. Huge pieces of lamb just melt away in your mouth. I've tried a lot of the other dishes... read more

We visited Meze Mangal for lunch yesterday, as a family. The food was good - we ordered a Beyti and Adana Kofte, with bread and humus. The only thing I was slightly disappointed by was the yoghurt drink, which I felt lacked the mint etc flavours, we have had in other Turkish restaurants. All in all, not bad for something... More

After reading the good reviews, I thought it might be worth to try as I am a fan of Turkish, Mediterranean food, myself being one. I didn't take a table but had some take away, a pide with 3 starters cost me 17 pounds, outrageous when I saw the poor quality, They assured me that everything was homemade but the... More

I visited Meze Mangal with my partner, it was a very enjoyable evening and the food was delicious. My partner had been before a while back and said that previously it had been one small restaurant and now it is twice the size, if not bigger! This must be due to popularity which is only a good thing for them,... More

An unplanned sojourn into Lewisham looking for lunch wound up here. I thought the menu could be explained in print better for those of us not overly familiar with the range of delicious Turkish food, but the friendly and charming staff are happy to oblige, even my off piste veggie companion. I had really tasty grilled lamb with the freshest... More

Went for a bday lunch, the restaurant was quite quiet, not a problem at all. But when asked where to sit we went to choose a table but then the waiter said "not that one" hmm so why ask? Food was freshly cooked and delicious, however service was friendly to start with and by the end the waiter wasn't so,... More

We went as a large group and ate in their private function room downstairs. Given it was a Saturday night (so I presume they were busy upstairs), I have no complaints about the service or the temperature of the food. Everyone we spoke with was very cheery and attentive. As a Coeliac, I did have a little problem trying to... More

Went again recently for a gorgeous take away. The place was packed and with good reason. Refurb is lovely and the food hasn't suffered at all. Gorgeous lamb shish, a massive mezze for two with gorgeous fried liver and fresh bread . I mean, people who moan on here must be going to a different place! I have never ahd... More

Had a celebratory meal here over Easter bank holiday. Fell far short of the quality of the food and service at Reyna just down the road on New Cross Rd. The service was particularly concerning and despite questioning the waiter's attitude towards us it didn't change or improve. Food was okay but all rather over cooked and on dry side.... More
