Visited Antep kitchen with my partner for lunch. We had an excellent hot meze for starter, vegetarian mussaka for the main and grilled king prawns for the other main. The food was hot, fresh and delicious. The waiters were efficient and very attentive. Particular thanks...to Uzunn Who took very good care of us. Another satisfied customer, thank you Antep.More

The best restaurant in Oxford. The food is incredible and the service is just above and beyond. I will always come back here when I’m in Oxford. This last time I brought my family and Uzunn gave us the best service!

Antep is definitely one of the best restaurants in Oxford. The quality and the freshness of the food is always exceptional, and it never disappoints. The staff are very attentive and friendly. Especially, Uzun, is a wonderful waiter who ensures excellent service and always has...a smiley face. This place is much recommended for Turkish and Mediterranean food lovers.More

Recommended as one of the top ten places to eat in Oxford and it did not disappoint. Lively, but not so that you cannot conduct a conversation. We chose from the 'house specials' and both were delicious. The highlight for me was the Turkish coffee...in a tiny silver, lidded cup. I want one. Service, by Uzu, was swift and friendly, despite the restaurant being very busy, and nothing was too much trouble - not requests for ice or yogurt 'on the side' from Mr Z. We were even able to park just along the road.More

I was really looking forward to visiting with my friend after work. We ordered and food arrived quickly it is pricy but worth every penny it was delicious. We had finished food and suddenly the table next to us started to be really rude to...the waiter we looked over which the customer obviously didn’t like. She then started being verbally abusive to us calling us all sorts of horrible names and threatening us apparently we were staring, which was due to how rude she was being to the staff. Whilst she was verbally abusing us all the waiters who were stood within a couple of metres of our table just stood and watched. In the end after the women had reduced my friend to tears after being so horrible we got up to leave I went to pay, not one waiter/waitress checked we were ok, no one came to calm the situation I was appalled it was very clear we were upset my friend had walked out in tears! Thankfully a couple who had heard everything came to reassure us we had done nothing wrong and checked we were ok, they too couldn’t believe none of the waiters intervened or even checked we were ok. Our meal was totally ruined and although this wasn’t down to the restaurant itself the dealing of the situation was appalling. I will never be returning to this restaurant again.More

Easily the best food in Oxford. All the staff are lovely, especially Mr Goksel (aka Uzun). They take care of people so well, and the service is always very quick. Antep Kitchen makes me feel like I’m back home in Istanbul ❤️

Went for a lunch and it's amazing how you can get a main, a drink, bread, tea and sweets for 10 pound. Also, Uzun's service was just professional!
