I love this place. I have been three times and even though there is plenty of choice on the menu I have the lamb kleftico every time. Sometimes it's the only thing that will save the day after an often dismal performance next door at St James'. However I'm looking forward to trying something else on the menu one day... More

Called in during graduation week on a Wednesday and thought we were onto a good thing straight away as it was so busy. Five of us shared a hot and cold mezze platter plus an extra portion of spicy Turkish sausage which set us up nicely for the mains. The Tandir Kebab was so tender and moist, I have no... More

Visited late afternoon Saturday, so beat the evening rush as this does get busy, the food was very tasty, mixture between Turkish and Greek. The staff were delightful , always smiling and the value for money for a city centre was excellent. Will visit again.

Popped in early doors for a bite to eat. Between 2 of us we shared a mixed hot mezze for 1 (believe me it's enough to share) and 2 mains washed down with 2 Efes for £31. The iskander my boyfriend had was amazing and my guvec was tasty-my only complaint was the chicken was a little dry. Very nice!!

I love this restaurant. I live locally and have eaten at Red Mezze about a dozen times, with friends, family and work colleagues, including my birthday meal. It's always great Turkish food, great atmosphere, great service, great prices. Always worth booking for evening meals as it's very popular. They do a good lunchtime deal as well. I highly recommend it.

Only eaten here once and got food poisoning. Food was average and cold and the service was bad. Would not recommend.

Went here on a Friday night with friends. Very small inside which made it very warm! Friendly staff but had to ask multiple times for drinks because they kept forgetting to bring some over. Food amazing and tasty.

We came here as a group, the good was lovely and the service was okay, it's a lovely little place but very on the small side! But based on the food alone I would definitely return & recommend to friends

I've been coming here for the best part of 4 years now, its never a disappointment, a great selection of Turkish food, the barbecued meats are super tasty and are a must for a big meat eater. They also offer a good mix of more sauce based mains, with some rich with yogurt others more fruity with lots of veg.... More
