What a find ! Went on Friday night, not knowing where or what to expect, a real mystery tour! All four of us had mixed meze starter, lovely! Then all had kebabs which were delicious, succulent and well seasoned. It seemed quite quiet so had a good natter to the owners who were very friendly as were all the staff,... More

Lovely atmosphere. We ordered three starters and a main course to all come together and everything was spot on. Bread was fresh and delicious, hummus, Turkish salad with halloumi and fried aubergines were all to die for. The yoghurt-amazing! My kebab was served with bulgur rice, a nice fresh salad and potatoes. Baklava to finish it all off! We really... More

The Meze lounge was a no fuss friendly service and good atmosphere restaurant and very reasonably priced. Surroundings were basic but the food spoke for itself. We had a mixed starter for 4 which was a pure delight, eight different hot and cold dishes and then a couple of extras. The warm homemade bread assortment which accompanied it just completed...

The food here is delicious. My husband eats in Turkish restaurants in London which he says just don't compare. We always look forward to trips here, kebabs and the mixed mere starter are fab. We also enjoyed the Turkish wine this time. Such a friendly little place... so much nicer than the boring chain restaurants popping up in town. My... More

Just a quick but great review for Meze. We've eaten here a few times and cannot fault the food. The restaurant is small so the service is intimate. Please seek out this hidden gem and get your tastebuds opened up. Want to go back every week

My husband and I went with another couple this evening, and I have to say it was an unexpectedly good evening. Don't be put off by the outside of the restaurant, The food was excellent and the service very friendly. It was rather like going to a slightly disorganised friends for a meal and being served an excellent meal. Probably... More

Visited Meze recently with friends. We'd heard mostly good reports from people we know so decided to give it a go. The food was tasty but lacked that special something that makes OK food great. The hot bread was delicious though. Sadly the service was a bit patchy. The older hostess is very friendly but there was a young girl... More
