I go to this restaurant quite often, it used to be great but these days it is gone down a bit. We still love the great atmosphere but hope they improve the quality of food and service soon.

Been going to grand bazaar for over 8 years now. I don't go there because the food is great... I go there because the location is great and it serves halaal food. Staff aren't the friendliest. Tables are small and space is tight. If you have a toddler (s) you will notice how uncomfortable the staff become. Not at all... More

This is quite good value for money. The portions are not too small and the atmosphere is good. It is a very busy place.The inside area is a little squashed but otherwise, it's a good night out for couples or groups of friends and you can sit outside if you like.

I have been here a couple of times with friends for lunch and it is an ideal central London location. We are always able to get a table outside which is very pleasant and has a very relaxed atmosphere. Also inside is very pretty with lots of colourful hanging lamps which give it an exotic feel. The staff are very... More

Well-priced Turkish restaurant on James Street in London. With dozens of tables right on the sidewalk, this is prime people watching in good weather. The service is relaxed and attentive. Their specialty is balloon bread, a type of pita that puffs in the oven. It's perfect on its own, or dipped in mint yogurt sauce or hummos.

We found this place as we were looking for somewhere to eat late at night. I ordered the grilled chicken and it was SOOO good. The service was good, and they gave us turkish delights when we got the bill and OMG they were delicious. I've never tasted anything like that before. I would go back again just to get... More

We ate a this restaurant in December and there was a hair in our food. We were still made for our food IN FULL and not even an apology from the manager. Would never return.

The location was the main reason we went here as in this area there is about 15-20 restaurants all with seats outside. The Turkish bloom bread was really good and a must when coming! They have a mixture of the menu from Turkish pizzas, pasta, vegetarian and usual grilled meats. One of our table had the spinach and mozzarella pasta... More

Visited this lively restaurant recently with a friend and we ordered the mixed maze starter with special Turkish balloon bread. We both ordered main courses, which we struggled to finish after eating the mere dish. If I visited again I think I would order a starter and dessert. We had opted for the set meal which comprised of a starter,... More

I have done two visits of this restaurant. The food is authentic and excellent. Friendly staff. Good service. Very cosy inside, outdoor seating with a good vibe of the street full of other restaurant, in the hearth of city. I would definitely recommend with no doubts.
