I've been visiting Bus Grill for four years. It's a family owned Turkish steakhouse that serves some of the best Turkish dishes you'll find in this part of the world. High-quality ingredients for a taste and experience you won't soon forget.

Chinese Valentines Day arrived and my wife and I arrived at Bus Grill for their Valentines Days special meal. Bus Grill is already one of our favorites, if not our favorite restaurant in Shenzhen, but they outdid themselves this night! It wasn't cheap, mind you,...2299 rmb (Bear in mind, our costs were for a special meal, there are menu options that is good for any budget!) for salad, seafood platter, a choice of one of three steaks, dessert and wine pairing with two bottles, and WoW! Wow! and WOW1 The Biral Salad was mescaline greens, kale cheese, walnuts green apple, avacdo and some other items and was full of flavor, and was one of the better salads I have had in a long time. But when the sea food platter arrived my eyes popped! A sizable lobster cut in half to share, two fo the largest prawns I have ever seen, and a decent pile of lump crab meat. The lobster was perfectly done and nicely sized. The prawns when larger tend to not be so good texture wise but these two were delicious and no texture problems, but the lump crab meat was the star of the show. We think it was sauteed lightly in butter but we weren't sure, but it was so tasty we were sad to see it disappear. I stated that the crab was the star of the show, but it was about to be upended by a tomahawk steak. My wife and I had been commenting about how delicious the meal was so far and how it was "next level" with the taste and quality of ingredients. The tomahawks steak delivery was a presentation with the owner and young son presenting it to us and cutting it with a flourish and adding extra seasoning at the table. There was enough steak that what we took home gave us two additional meals. This steak was so tender so flavorful and so perfectly cooked that my wife and I became silly caricatures 'ooooing" and "aaahhhing" over each bite. Deciding the description of "next level" food was the only way to represent this meal, and we pondered how we could go back to regular food after this heavenly meal. The mushrooms my wife loved, as well as the asparagus. The baby carrots were tender and tasty, but it was the truffle mashed potatoes that was a perfect compliment to the steak. While I bemoaned the fact that the potatoes were in such a small dish, as we had to ask for s second one. I fear if they put a bucket of those potatoes down I would have just dove headfirst into them. They were certainly next level potatoes. The desert was a special house cake. Turkish yoghurt, fresh strawberries, whipped cream......lets just say, I don't know what else to say. It can sound like I hav run out of words to give this meal a proper explanation because it doesn't get much better than this if you are looking for a steak. Don't get me wrong, this isn't only a steak place, and everything we have had is delicious. My wife and I cook and use to work in the food industry and one meal she ordered the beef and lamb meatballs and after biting into one she looked at me and stated " I have made a lot of food. I have made a lot of delicious food, but I don't know if I ever made anything that tastes this good" and that is high praise from a former personal chef and restaurant owner. If you haven't been, you need to go. That is, if you love food,More

One bite of any of the meats on the extensive "Bus Platter" and I was transported back to my travels in Turkey. The food is fresh, authentic, and absolutely delicious. I also loved the atmosphere of the restaurant: in an old subway car, tucked inside...a metro stop. Brilliant! It's been open four years but has the character of a long-time favorite. The chef-owner and his wife are warm and welcoming - what a unique spot in Shenzhen! Don't miss the desserts! Semolina cake and the pudding with pistachios were my favorites.More

Best to make reservations if possible. It not large and they are a popular place for good reason. The hostess, Arzu, also the co-owner and married to the head chef and driving force behind Bus Grill was in non stop motion, (as were the other...cooks and floor staff) when I arrived with 7 other guests. The place didn't have an open seat. She said 45 minutes-1 hour before we could be seated. Off we went to have a drink in a block that is chock full of wonderful places to eat and drink. When we returned the seats were still not vacated and as we pondered to leave of not we were offered complimentary soda, wine, or beer....nice touch and it was just enough time to have another large group leave. I got the lamb shashlik and it was tender and the way lamb should be prepared. I honestly can't tell you what others got, but each one gave it a huge thumbs up. My wife was disappointed that the hummus was sold out. We started our meal around 9 and its made fresh each day we were told. So we just had to return a day later. The hummus was a delight. My wife makes great hummus and we are hummus snobs and this was awesome. I like how my wife hummus is super garlicky, but this was top notch hummus. It was a small disappointment that pita wasn't served with the hummus but the rolls they have a really tasty and soft. The bread is served with a meal and with tzatziki, oil and vinegar and red pepper mash of some sort that was a great starter. The first night we just split the bill between 7 (there were 8 but one was a teenager) and it was 128 RMB per person. Not too shabby for the quality of meal. The Buss Grill Yoghurt Kebabs was juicy lamb over bread and cooked so the bread got crispy in spots and a drizzle of tomato sauce. Even though we were already family full. (we had nachos a bit earlier) we couldn't stop eating until it was gone. Be waned its a frenetic environment. There is so much food being produced and its loud with people, music, and the hustle and bustle of an active kitchen. A kitchen you can see into, with its glorious slabs of meat. You know the old saying, "done in sight, done right" holds true here. It may be too much of a sensory overload for some, but for meat lovers, particularly lamb, it shouldn't be missed.More

Simply the best Turkish food I’ve ever had (and I’ve been to Istanbul). I ordered a Kebap and the lamb/beef mix so so incredibly tender. Very friendly, attentive and English speaking staff also.

Being somewhat of a veteran expat in China, I’m always on the lookout for “western” restaurants. I stumbled upon this place and couldn’t be more satisfied. The service was fantastic, the food was perfect, they were quick and efficient. The only thing I’m upset about...was my stomach not being bigger so I could try more of their dishes!More

Turkish restaurants here are usually average at best but this place is a revelation. Can't fault any of the food, the mezze delightful (smoked aubergine superb) and the meats high quality. We had the mixed grill so we could try everything, the steak was outstanding...(best cuts imported from Australia) and the kebab succulent (no chewy cheap meat in there!). The wine was reasonably priced, we were recommended one and it was great. Service was efficient, friendly and knowledgeable, they really try hard to please (we had a job finding it so they came out looking for us!!!). We'll be back for more soon and bring our friends!More

Tried the Angus Beef Shashlik, the beef was barbecued just right, best enjoyed with coarse salt, with optional chili pepper. Shall try other signature Turkish dishes and steaks next time with friends!

I ordered their burger and was very delighted by its flavor and juiciness. If you're looking for a great burger in Shenzhen, you can't go wrong by trying this place. The place is warm and welcoming but be aware that it may be a little...hard to find, it's inside the building, in a long hallway. Just use your instinct and go for it, you won't regret it.More
