First time I have been here since it was refurbished. Staff are very attentive and helpful, food excellent and the place had a nice buzz to it. Really enjoyed the experience and lucky for us, it is OUR local.

I was blown away by the outstanding level of service and stunning food at Meze Mangal. When the owner discovered it was our first visit he went above and beyond to ensure we understood the menu and made sure we didn't miss out on anything he rated highly. Forget the chains, Meze Mangal offers a unique experience with traditional cooking... More

Couldn't ask for better service and the food was very tasty and plentiful. Complementary coffees at the end sealed the deal. Highly recommended.

First time back since it closed for refurbishment and expansion; we had been regulars at Meze Mangal since 2009, as it was the perfect place for a leisurely post-waterpolo match or post-theatre dinner: delicious, fresh, healthy grilled specialties, in huge portions. Glad to say nothing has changed, except the decor, which is brighter; same outstanding food, same attentive and friendly... More

I loved visiting Istanbul and Turkey in general, and I love the food. I've eaten at lots of Turkish restaurants and I'm really happy to report that this place is a local gem. The food is really really good. We've eaten almost one of everything on the menu and absolutely everything is really nicely made, very good quality and delicious.... More

I have been to Meze Mangal many times over the years. The service is excellent, the food really tasty and good value for money and the manager is a fantastic character. From the outside Meze Mangal is very unimposing and you might even have been put off eating there by it but don't let that stop you as the food... More

We were recommended this restaurant for it's Turkish food and we were not disappointed. We got there around 6.00pm and no reservation was necessary. We had a taramasalata and aubergine dishes to start and spicy minced lamb dishes for mains. Quite delicious. It's a good atmosphere, air conditioned and really helpful staff to guide one through the menu. Prices are... More
