Popped in for a drink and can't believe how above and beyond the staff went for us. They instantly brought over complimentary snacks to share which was a lovely touch! We then ordered a bottle of Prosecco and they made a make shift ice bucket...More

I’ll keep it short and simple. Very slow service. Unhappy staff. Was told there was no rice for the family meal that we ordered after we finished our starters, chips were over cooked and the meat was bland. I wouldn’t go there again.

The food was delicious. Staff were friendly but couldn't find them when you needed to ask for something. Food was fresh. We ordered thr platter. Price was decent and compared to other platters this one was a bit small but we were still full.

Mangal serves good Turkish food in a friendly atmosphere. The staff is very well behaved and the menu is well planned.

I live close by and tried this for the first time last week. What a shame, uninterested staff, just getting through their shift. There were 6 other people in at the same time and it was a struggle to get attention. The free bread was...More

Found via Trip Advisor... a friendly atmosphere and fresh cooked food. Bread, salad , dips and a wide range of meat dishes! It's "bring your own Beer/Wine" but there is a Sainsbury next door with a good selection. Will definitely be back !!
