“Superb Restaurant”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

Food is outstanding, and you wouldn't expect it seeing it from outside. Great atmosphere and the service is great as it feels family run. Value is amazing, as they even talk you out of buying too much food.

“Don't be put off by the exterior!”
Reviewed November 10, 2012 via mobile

Although this doesn't look very glamorous outside, inside there is plenty of atmosphere from the numbers of people eating there and the very long metal grill which cooks lots of kebabs all at once over what looks like a wood fire. Despite the fact that the restaurant was full, the service was good (once we managed to get some menus) and the food came quickly. The plate of mixed cold starters was excellent and we enjoyed the main courses too - kleftiko, which was huge, the meat falling off the bone, sea bass and minced lamb kebabs with salad. We had arrived with one extra person and the staff were accommodating, laying an extra place for us. We would happily return.

“By far the best kebab restaurant in London!”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

Meze Mangal is the best Turkish kebab restaurant in London. There is no doubt that the meat here is fantastic.

It's very high quality ingredients and exceptional cooking.

“Excellent Turkish grill”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

Although Meze Mangal may not look like much from outside (thanks in no small part to the neverending building work of their neighbour) but stepping through the door is like stepping into an evening in Istanbul. The atmosphere is always buzzing, and the smell of the grill lets you know that you are in for a treat. The portions are hugely generous, particularly given how reasonable the prices are, and we always manage to overorder. Booking for dinner is essential, even during the week, as this place is always busy. Highy recommended...
