Tucked away behind Bond St in the West End is where you'll find Grand Bazaar, and you could even be forgiven for walking past it. My friend and I were greeted warmly and shown to our table. Whilst it wasn't particularly busy service was a bit slow, but we didn't mind as the decor provided much interest and fascination. We... More

We stumbled across this cafe/restaurant when taking a walk around London. As soon as you enter it has a fantastic atmosphere, with its many lamps and lanterns adorning the ceiling, in addition to Turkish artwork on the walls and good seating areas. The staff were incredibly friendly and the service was good. The food is really authentic - particularly the... More

From the moment we stepped inside this little eating joint just off Oxford Street we had a amazing experience. The ambience, artefacts, the decor all reminded us of a trip to Turkey in the recent past. The food is amazing with good options for Vegetarians too. The Grand Mezze must be tried.

A friend of mine had been to this restaurant before and loved it so I was really keen to give it a try myself. I went at lunchtime and it was busy but I soon found out why. The food is fantastic and the decor, reminiscent of a Turkish souk, is charming without being over the top. There is a... More

This restaurant is on a side street next to Suffridge's on Oxford Street. The decor is very middle eastern to Turkish. We ordered the sampler menu which gives you many small plates so you can sample a variety of dishes. Next time I'd order a kabob or something more predictable. Nevertheless, it was a fun place to eat after shopping.

We always look forward to The Grand Bazaar when we go to London. The place itself is quite small but the ceiling is hung with traditional looking multicoloured lanterns which set a wonderful ambience. The choice of food is great, the lunch time menu is especially good value - it only finishes at 5.30pm. I had aubergine starter -sasuka I... More

Thank you very much! Fabulous meal and very good value for central London. The staff were excellent and our food was yummy! The only comment I have concerns the toilets. Please don't feel you have to compete with Istanbul toilets - they are in a league of their own so it's ok to clean yours!

We had a lovely meal here; we had been shopping and the weather in London was quite warm for this time of year, people eating both in and out. We ate inside, thoroughly enjoying the liveliness and décor. The house wine, Turkish, was very good, we had one of their two sampler meals, one vegan and one with meat, which... More

Just had a meal at the Grand Bazaar. They market themselves as a Turkish and Italian restaurant. We were attracted to the Turkish aspect of it. We had soup of the day which was chicken soup. It was delicious. For the entre I had grand bazaar special kebab and my husband had Iskener. The food was delicious, the portions were... More
