Food is delicious, truly Turkish and served with great attitude. We visit MezeMangal very often and it is great to be appreciated as a loyal customer. You should try the shish kebab, it is possibly the best main course on the menu. You will not find so generous portions everywhere else!

We went to the newly refurbished Meze Mangal and the food was as delicious as before. The food is true Turkish, freshly cooked and very generous portions. The staff were so welcoming and our waiter extremely helpful. We look forward to our next visit. Only downside is that you are limited to a 90 minute slot.

Went to Mezze Mangal for an early Mothers Day lunch treat for my mother-in-law yesterday. Really impressed. Understand the place had recently been refurbished, and the decor was understated but very nice. Food was excellent, and the portions very good. Thoroughly recommend this restaurant.

My family and I live within close proximity so we visit often. The staff are always friendly however always make a fuss regarding making a reservation even when their empty and always say what time they'd like us out by, however we take no notice and have turned into a joke between us all. The food has always been outstanding... More

We have been customers of Meze Mangal for many years now and have enjoyed eating in and take aways. Sadly our last take away was so disappointing it will probably be our last visit. The meat, particularly the chicken, tasted of the cooking gas or charcoal that is used (not a natural chargrilled flavour) and was inedible. The salad was... More

This place is popular and has been well-reviewed but I can't see what all the fuss is about. Perhaps we chose the wrong dishes. One thing that it does have to take credit for is the ample servings. A couple of starters shared between four and a main course was more than enough in quality. The aubergine and liver starters... More

I have visited this restaurant a number of times over the years. What made it work so well was the fact that it was unpretentious. It was what it was. An ordinary Turkish restaurant, served good food, no hidden extras, slightly down trodden but value for money and a good service. Visited yesterday for the first time since the new... More

Meze Mangal is an amazing Turkish restaurant. It is a really busy place and it is advisable to book if you are going to eat here. You can't fault the food here. It is always freshly cooked and tasty and you won't be disappointed. The bread which is baked onsite is lovely. The manager and waiters are always welcoming and... More

Revisit after 6 months or more during which has grown somewhat! Food still amazingly clean and fresh. Service friendly although waitress made several strange mistakes eg offering and serving tea and coffee and then asking if we wanted a dessert (none on main menu so presumed not offered)! Still didn't detract from wonderful atmospheric and rewarding meal
