Went to Liman for a pre-lockdown “last supper” and I am almost out of superlatives for how incredible the lamb shish is. It’s just miles ahead of anything else you will eat. It is unbelievably tender (I have no idea how they do it!) and...amazingly tasty. It’s like a religious experience every time. The rice is also the most buttery and delicate and delicious thing! Today also had the borek and falafel, both 10/10.More

Liman would be right at the top of my restaurant recommendations, for couples, friends, solo dining, anything really.

My partner and I came for dinner - our first meal out in a very long time and we were excited, especially seeing all of the very positive reviews. The food was great, there is no doubt about it. However, the service from the lady...waitress was abrupt and dismissive from start to finish and we actually felt rather uncomfortable around her. There was an issue around my main (the “bed of toasted bread” was just actually a handful of croutons). Her response to me asking about the bread, and if it is actually croutons then perhaps I could have some on the side instead - it was not at all accommodating, and I felt like I had been told off and then begrudgingly appeased. There was a long wait between our starters and mains, and my parter’s main came without the pitta he had asked for. The kitchen was busy and these things happen - and I think in this environment especially, it’s important to be accommodating as a customer too. The gentleman waiter brought us some baklava later, as he had noticed - which was a nice gesture from him. However, the service from the lady waitress did spoil the evening for us and is something that is difficult to accommodate for - a friendly and personable demeanour to your customers should be very simple. We heard the tables around us saying similar things. The experience last night does not seem in keeping with the general experience people have at this restaurant - a real shame.More

Quite possibly the best mix grill I've ever had. And the service was excellent. 5 stars 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟

Just off Chapel Market, this restaurant serves up gorgeous Turkish dishes packed with flavour. The falafel is some of the best I’ve ever had, the lamb shish is so tender and portions are really generous. The mezze platter on the back is a brilliant option...to try loads of dishes, and unless you’re really hungry you won’t need anything else. Would say service is a bit slow but totally expected at the moment. Really recommend.More

Hey there, I would definitely recommend the restaurant for a romantic evening. About the bread, I am not really shure. But I believe you can order it separately. Hope this helps. Best wishes.

You can park right on the street near restaurant but I think you need to pay for this.
