Great service, with nice olives and bread to start and then baklava to finish. I had Iskender, which was really nice and very filling, the food is all cooked on an open grill and is very authentic.

Freshly prepared food. All extras given from marinated bread through to home made Baklava. A regular Friday night treat for myself and my girlfriend. Good value for money, great service. A firm favorite!

Just been to Makara as have been going past on the bike/bus for a while and it always looks full.
Well I wasn't disappointed! My wife loves Turkey and their food so had a lot to live up to.
We were greeted with a smile and shown to our table. We immediately were given bread and olives which were yumm! We had Efes beers, which went down very well!
We both had starters of calamari and fasolia which were both very tasty ( my wife said oh it's normally made with cannellini bean, these we green beans)
We both had lamb Kofta with garlic, it was served with rice,salad and a grilled tomato and chilli. we ordered ezme. All very delicious.
We were given a biscuit afterwards coated in 'pure alcohol' my wife said as she ate both!!


Lovely meal, lovely people.

We're students from Switzerland (both Turkish) and were in Hove for a week.
We searched a good Restaurant to enjoy our last evening in Brighton and heard about "Makara".

This was the right choice!

It's the perfect place to drink Raki and enjoy with it the delicious assortment of different Mezze- delicacy!

The owner's of this Restaurant and the staff are friendly and amusing!

This was our best evening in our trip!
Be sure, that we attend you again in Brighton and thank you for everything, if the owner will read this!

Regards, Yeliz
