“We keep coming back!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2012

This is a little gem. Rough at the edges perhaps, but with great food and service coupled with unbeatable value this is somewhere that you will return to again and again.

We holiday in Turkey regularly and this is pretty close to what we would eat there. With Efes beer at £2.75 a bottle and good, inexpensive house wine you can afford to push the boat out.

Well done Red Mezze, see you soon!

“Just the job”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2012

Whilst up here on business, I'd done a search on my phone to see what restaurants were in the area and this one came up nearby along with umpteen others.
By chance as I was walking back from the Leazes Park that evening, there it was, so I went in on spec after scanning the menu outside and seeing something that sounded nice (Seafood Guvec - swordfish, prawns, mussels etc).
Prompt, friendly service and an excellent house red made for a good start. When the grub arrived it looked and tasted even better than it had read on the menu, so I scoffed the lot along with some pitta bread and some turkish delight to round it off.
Would definitely go again.

“Great food, great atmosphere, great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

We visited this restaurant on a busy Friday night after reading good reviews on TA. We were not disappointed. The food was delicious (in particular the vegetarian options), despite being busy the service was faultless and the price of the meal very reasonable. We will be going back.

“Traditional Turkish Food and Modern Decoration”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2012

Modern décor, traditional food and best of all it was delicious! My partner and I shared the goats cheese and dill filo parcels to start, I had the Lamb Mousakka and my partner the vegetable Mousakka and then we shared the Baklava for desert. Not too badly priced for the location and the staff were very nice.
