5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2014

Stumbled across this restaurant and saves having to go over to Liverpool for a Turkish meal.
Service excellent, quality of food superb, portion size more than ample. Pleasant , clean and reasonably priced. Very friendly and helpful in staff, with a lesson in bread making in the huge oven, thrown in as well. we will definitely be going back

“I love meat again!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014

The food was absolutely amazing! I haven't ever liked lamb, however I tried some of my partner's and it tasted nothing like wet sheep and I would definitely have it again! The chicken I had was so succulent and tasty - we will definitely be going back!

The only down side was the staff weren't that attentive

“lived up to the hype :)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014

friendly staff and a clean inviting restraunt. from initial booking to arrival to leaving the staff were courteous, helpful, made the kids and grown ups smile and without being intrusive. this can be a hard balance but was achieved well

food was simple (e.g. rice salad and meat) but well cooked and beautifully presented with a variety that suited two families grandparents down to kiddies.

a wide variety of starters and mains with not a single grumble which is almost unheard of and do a decent Turkish coffee.

I'll b e back........etc

thoroughly recommended

“Great place to eat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2014

Good quality delicious food, excellent service and good atmosphere. I booked this after reading on trip advisor on top restaurants in Chester. I rang and booked the week before which I was glad I did as it was very busy with others calling in and asking for tables. They did their best to accommodate everyone. Highly recommend.

“From the moment the door opened”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014 via mobile

I knew that I'd chosen the best place for dinner as soon as the door opened to the warmest of welcome's from the owner of Istanbul BBQ.

The atmosphere, food & service were all second to none. I can definately recommend the Turkish Lamb Shank (dish of the day) which was the biggest & best ever tasted.

We will be back for seconds the next time that we're in Chester.
