This restaurant makes great play of its Turkish heritage and its Turkish food. It was difficult to spot either. If you want fairly plain, but satisfying, food then it is okay. But that seems to be all there is. It is just a long table of hot plate buffet dishes, primarily of Asian-style dishes. The staff were friendly and attentive.... More

I had a buffet lunch at the Topkapi Restaurant which is near the Westin Hotel. The selection of foods is reasonable - although they could easily add some more dishes. Most of the food is chilli spicy - and this could limit the choices available to you if you do not eat very spicy food. The price is about GBP... More

They were just arranging the buffet, but as we asked for the price, it was more expensive than the buffet-dinner we had... More

The quality and pricing was always good, later they were selling sheesha and became very famous. Now, the restaurant is there but not a place that people would... More

My only complaint would be that they were unable to refill items quickly.....especially cuz it was really busy that day and we had to wait quite a while for some items to be replaced as they were finishing quickly......staff were also not so attentive towards us....i had to get up and go and tell a waiter to bring our drinks....overall...

Can become crowded, but good value for money. Very popular with Bangladeshis. But not for a romantic tete-a-tete.
