Beautiful food, friendly staff WE WILL RETURN We were welcomed by extremely friendly staff, seated at our table. You have to book as this is an extremely popular restaurant with few tables, if moved to a larger property would still be fully booked! The food was truly amazing thank you so much.

Just visited this reataurant/cafe again. Had another great meal and a chilled out time. The bread is wonderfully light. The meat tender and well seasoned. The veg and rice are great too. A hidden gem of a place.

Meze is a small casual cafe/restaurant near to Darlington station serving superb Turkish food at very reasonable prices. It's a great place to take a family group as there's so much variety, including great vegetarian and vegan dishes. We recommend the mixed starter, served with warm fluffy Turkish bread, but don't over-order as it is huge - 11 different items!... More

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
