“FANTASTIC”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

Very traditional Turkish food- plenty of choice.Pide, lahmacun, stews, kebabs (not processed meat) grilled cheese and they have a real charcoal grill. Not really expensive when you consider the fab fresh tasty bread and salads included yum yum. So relaxed.Very clean too.
Ordered the cheese and 2 lahmacuns - they are only £3.50 each, tasty and with a kick.Was very full..couldn`t manage the 2nd.Husband managed it though ha ha

“A Satisfactory Return”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

Going back to somewhere which has more than pleased the first time can be dangerous. So the return trip to Istanbul BBQ was tentative. We need not have worried. On a cold Tuesday night, ( I had booked but it wasn't necessary) we were subsumed by a warm welcome and the rich, but not overpowering delights of the kitchen. My Partner ordered the Chicken Kebab and remembering that last time she was unable to make much headway into the rice or very generous mixed salad, cut out the first and asked for a small portion of the second, I ordered the Iskender - Lamb Kofti, Chicken Kebab and Savory mince balls. I was beaten into submission before I could finish everything. My "full-upness" was helped by a portion of the leg of lamb which the owner removed from the oven after eight hours of cooking and brought over to me to try. Next time.........

“yummy”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

went at the weekend with friends, and it was fab. the staff very friendly and helpful. food was really nice, very fresh. Everything about this place is fab. It is a must go to place, you might think it a bit expensive, but worth every penny. I can't think of anything bad to say, they didn't huff and puff because you couldn't decide what to have, like you get at other places.
