Great food, and genereous portions. The owner and staff are very friendly. You can even see the meat cooked in front of you on a charcoal grill. Strongly recommended!

All the meat is cooked on charcoal in the restaurant so you can see the love and care that goes into the food. The bread is baked on site this gives it to be the freshest possible. I was invited to go downstairs to the preparation rooms and shown how salad,and meats are stored in various fridges with strict control... More

We have lived up the road from Meze for 6 years and my sister before us for 8 years. Sahin and the boys never fail to deliver perfectly authentic, tasty, quality food at great value for money......we'd pay more!!! (we always leave a good tip, they deserve it!!) They have always got time to say hi and Sahin is without... More

Saturday night is never the best night to go to a crowded restaurant. Food was good, tastes, well presented, hot....... but it was so loud in there. Sound proofing would be good. I understand they want to fit as many in as possible, but I did feel like we were out did dinner with the table next to us. Under... More

We've been coming here for years and never had a bad meal. Have to admit, it can be difficult to get a table at times - which is a good sign that restaurant is doing something right. The men in the family particularly like the half and half (chicken and lamb). The portions are huge and we often have doggy... More

Meze Mangal used to be a regular eatery for me, however recently their prices have gone through the roof with increases of up to 50% for the same food. This is/was too much for the area this restaurant is in (i.e. SE4) and the waiters can be a bit "funny", too. As a white, european customer I sometimes feel they... More

I was with a large group of people for a business dinner and our meal was pre-arranged - meze platters and main dishes. We were brought drinks and bread fairly quickly, and the meze platters came quickly, but that's when the service went off rails. It took us well over an hour to get our main dishes and no one...
