My husband and I frequently had lunch at Mangal and enjoyed the totally authentic Turkish food and drinks. We were so surprised and shocked when we discovered that it had closed down!!! Such a shame.

The food was lovely .. Service was average but the belly dancing made up for it ! Expect to partake in a little dancing with the lovely belly dancer

Went here for lunch while shopping in Reading on Sunday. I had booked a table online as we have a tastecard which they will only take if a table has been booked. When we arrived there were no other customers, I said I had booked and gave my name, we were shown to a table (at this point he had... More

There was nothing special about lunch here. The food was mediocre and the service adequate. Lunch special represents ok value for what you get,

A regular haunt, good food, great service, reasonable prices. Excellent menu with a great selection of dishes, all extremely well prepared and very enjoyable. Limited but good value wine list with some nice surprises. Great service from very friendly staff. An enjoyable place for a relaxed dinner

Popped in for the first time one Saturday for lunch. We were very impressed with the food, all very fresh, authentic and really tasty. We had a small mixed meze starter between two and then a kebab dish each. The yoghurt served with the kebabs is to die for, as is the ice-cold Efes on draft! The only thing lacking... More

We had a good visit with friends. Everyone was pleased with their food. I have been use to having restaurants providing allergy menus, but there didn't appear to be one here. Our waiter didn't understand what I was asking but someone else was able to help sort out what I could eat. Atmosphere was very nice. It was enjoyable watching... More

The mixed hot and cold Mezze was delicious and more than enough for two. Our mains were equally of a high standard and very tasty - lamb ribs and slow cooked lamb. The service was prompt and the belly dancer added to the ambiance.

My partner and I have had a number of deliveries from this place and they have all been excellent. Staff have been brilliant even if they didn't have an item on the menu they organised a suitable substitute to match the order. I've seen a couple of negative reviews on here but our experience has been fantastic. Great place, great... More
