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

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.
