“A Turkish delight....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013 via mobile

What a wonderful place!! I found this restaurant on the tastecard website which allows you to use the card from Sun-Thur and receive 50% of your food bill but as well as that they offer a 2 course deal for £11.99 which is also excellent value

So for my birthday me and my family decides to give it a try and let me say I was not disappointed I regularly eat out and enjoy sampling different foods

The service was prompt with a friendly polite waiter taking our order and drinks choices

We all had a starter and a main which were tasty and very moorish and left us wanting more although the portion sizes were good

We had Turkish sausage, feta cheese parcels and a prawn casserole to start followed by the marinated chicken, chicken in white wine and cream and meatballs in a rich tomato sauce all came with rice and salad

Overall I fantastic place where we will deffiently return :)

“wey hey saray”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

My first visit today with friends who are regular visitors. The owner, Duram, was very welcoming, and couldn't do enough for us. Had the 2 course special - gorgeous. The Turkish white wine was one of the best I have had.
Wish I lived nearby, but will be there again when visiting my friends.

“Fantastic Turkish food, friendly atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013 via mobile

Saray is a great addition to the Chorlton scene. The food is delicious and hearty portions, and the wine also is excellent and good value. The owner is very pleasant and friendly with imposing at all, and recommended great wines to go with our food. 4 of us all chose different dishes, and all of us were really pleased with our dinner. Will definitely be back.

“Best Turkish restaurant I have been to in Manchester”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

Went on 15th December as three generations of a family. I ordered lamb shish - It is the first time I have ever been asked, in this type of establishment, how I would like it cooked! It came beautifully rare, not dry and overcooked as can happen. Plus the portion was enormous. Accompaniments of rice and salad had more flair than usual. All other dishes, including the Mezze were really good. The Eastern European waitress was very good and the Turkish owner/chef charming. Several tables were taken but we could not understand why the place was not packed on a Saturday night in Chorlton. Possibly because the location, although on a main road, is not along the most lively and frequented strips. My only slight gripe was that the edges of the floor were not pristine and were accumulating dust, as if not thoroughly cleaned every day. This place deserves to be supported.

“delicious food, friendly and proffessional service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

I visited this restaurant with my sister and her hubby and my other half, and the four of us had the meze platter to share as a starter, which was beautifully presented and very tasty. The main courses were also delicious with very generous prortion sizes (i couldnt eat all of my lamb steak, so i took the rest home with me as it was too good to leave behind). My boyfriend (who owns his own restaurant) was very impressed with the quality of food, which is fairly unusual as he is normally very fussy. The standard of service was very good, so we will be sure to visit this lovely little restaurant next time we are in the area. Keep up the good work guys!
