It was an excellent experience. We have tried many plates, and all are great. We as a family like to share, and was worth it. I was getting my self ready for a big bill, but it was as expected and within our budget. Definitely I will come again.

I went with friends last night for dinner but to another branch located in alseef mall Amuharaq. Average service, food, taste far from what i experienced in Turkey, fair prices. Not recommended.

Kosebasi opened a new branch at Muharraq Seef Mall in addition to their restaurant in City Centre in Manama. I have not dine in the restaurant. As a matter of fact the decoration is very good and they have out door tables with good views and it seems the services are good base on the treatment I received. These are... More

I rated this restaurant poorly because of the following: 1. The food was cold. Although to be fair, they served an excellent mushroom soup. 2. You have to ask for everything. For example, sauce (ketchup, mayo, garlic, hot, etc.). You need to ask for it. 3. The waiter (Younes) mislead me, I specifically told him that I want rice. After... More

Although this restaurant is based in City Centre Mall in close proximity to TFI', Chilli's and alike, do not think for one second that this chain has succumbed to US influences on food. The food here is traditional and fantastic, we have dined here now on numerous occasions and from the succulent meats to the fresh hot bread, all visits... More

My colleagues and I had a dinner here last week ago and we come quite early so its not that crowded because this place is always crowded especially during weekend. Food is really great! I may say superb, I like their beef grill so much. I really enjoy our dinner. The ambiance is so cozy. Service wise is excellent, staff... More

It's my second time at Kosebasi, first at City Centre and second at Seef Muharraq. Must admit keep getting disappointed everytime I visit the place once with family, and this time with friends. At $27 per head for a kebab outing thought it was quite on the high side. Average service; somewhat tasteless meat as Kebab or put on a... More

My friend & I went there in the middle of week so it was less crowded. The food overall was very good and what you'd expect from an authentic Turkish Restaurant 🍴 but I was surprised of how nice the waiters were specially the one serving our table
