Consistently good Turkish food. The adna kofte (spiced meat skewers) are by far my favorite. The mixed cold platters are also a great way to start. The freshly baked Turkish bread is complimentary and worth a meal unto itself.

I frequent the place as I live near by. I will be moving soon though, and promised myself I will make the journey to return, I hope I keep my promise. Disclosure - I often eat there with friends who are meat eaters ( I am a vegan! ) and they say it's best for meat. I can only give... More

We've been to Meze Mangal several times and the food has always been consistently good and the service attentive if a little rushed. Was looking forward to going back last night. Booked a table for the early slot on a Saturday evening. Were shown to a table right at the back as four very large parties were in. Waited ages... More

Went as a party of 8. Got there about 8pm and this fairly recently expanded eat house was totally buzzing. By 9:15 it had started to clear out a bit. Had a brilliant time. All had starters the standout of which was a fried liver dish. If you don' t like offal then this is the one to experiment with.... More

Having visited this true gem of a restaurant on 5 or 6 occasions over the past 2 years, it is hard for me to comprehend the few negative reviews on this site. In a world of soulless chain restaurants, this truly authentic family run establishment stands head and shoulders above ANY restaurant in the local area. The welcome is warm... More

The meat was very bland and compared to the other Turkish restaurants I visited this is way below par, no rice comes with any meals. And 4 lamb chops on its own will set you back £15 of your hard earned money. Would not go back there, would recommend anyone to visit Devran or Kervan or Gozuku if they want... More

This is not the first time I have been at this restaurant. it is always busy but this should not make you think that you will have a slow or bad service. From the owner (Sahin) down to the Waiters they are all very hospitable and show great care to detail. The portions of Starters and the Main course of... More
