Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We visited Mangal Meze on Saturday 11 of January for a dinner and had a great time! Service was excellent and attentive, waiters were smiling and pleasant as well as informative and helpful. We had sharing platter for starters and a main each. All of the food was delicious and prepared to a very high standard! King prawns were cooked to perfection and lamb chops still pink in the middle. Our waitress Sarah was very attentive and friendly. We we pups recommend this restaurant and can’t wait to visit again soon.

I've been coming to this restaurant for years and yesterday I decided to order the calamari. Well it came out and I got three small ring sized calamari for £6.25. I can only describe that a baby bangle is bigger sized than the calamari I got. Definitely will not be ordering that again. Also they've started adding 12.5% service charge which I thought was bit cheeky as there was only two if us. Food was ok on this occasion and excellent service. I think I'll only go here again if I was really craving Turkish food and in the area.

Came twice this month with my 4 year old daughter. Mangal Meze never fails when it comes to customer service or food, it’s has always been consistent and exceptional. The restaurant is very smoothly run and even during extremely busy times they manage it with ease. A special mention for the owner Remzi who is very lovely and does ensure his customers have enjoyed their time at Mangal. My 4 year old daughter is always very excited to see him as he is extremely welcoming and very friendly. He always takes a few minutes out of his own time and makes sure she is ok and enjoying her food. I would highly recommend Mangal Meze to everyone as they do not disappoint. I cannot find a single fault. Will be returning soon.

Really disappointed with my most recent and unfortunately my last visit to Mangal Meze. The service was surprisingly poor - especially during a pretty quiet evening. The food lacked flavour and when we asked for more bread the staff looked so offended. Our second batch of bread was cold and had no seasoning like our first batch. Overall a disappointing experience. Staff also don't wear their masks properly, most walked around with it round their necks.

I will write the events that occurred factually! My date and I arrived without a booking, they agreed to get us a table but we would have to wait half an hour, which we were happy to do so. So far so good. After half an hour, we were seated and our drinks and food order taken. Drinks arrived, and we waited for our order of food. Great! Half an later.... no food arrived Forty five mins later... no food arrived A gentleman came over with the bill for food and drink... we refused to pay as we hadn't even eaten yet. He then called his manager over, we explained what happened and he went to the kitchen to find out, our food hadn't even been placed! Now I was a little angry about the situation but I assumed they would arrange something for us to eat. A few moments later the council walked in due to them being open after 10PM. It was 10.03PM. While this occurred another gentleman came over and said we needed to leave now and go! By this time I was very angry. Waited over an hour and nothing. No food. Plus no where else to eat after 10PM. My first time visiting here and I would never go back. The only thing they allowed was gave us free drinks which we only ordered two. I hope whoever else goes here doesnt get forgotten.

I attended this restaurant who mentioned over the phone they can make my food gluten free and said they are aware of food allergens. Upon arrival I asked the waiter to adapt my meal to gluten free option which they swapped the rice for salad. When the salad arrived I noticed the cabbage was pickled so I asked my mum to taste and double check which she confirmed. I told the manager who confirmed yes there is vinegar and explained that it is not therefore gluten free. He came back with a "new plate" which I then found was just the same meal but the salad was moved onto a seperate plate and STILL had some cabbage which he tried to tell me was a chilli. Then I found even more of the cabbage, called him over again to show him. He was visibly annoyed,said he will have a fresh one made in 5 minutes and said aghhh under his breath but we heard. Once my whole family had finished their meals and easily another 15-20 minutes later my food arrived. It was nice in the end, but I ate alone and had to eat it quickly as everyone had finished. They did not take my allergy serious, I also stated infront of a waitress that I am not gluten free for a lifestyle choice but it can cause serious damage if I consume. The manager appeared unfased by any of this and made it seem like I was being difficult but then they shouldnt post this restaurant as having gluten free options, nor tell me this or say they are aware what gluten is. I would never go back, and id stay well away if you have any sort of allergy, you'll be at risk.

We were in town for a wedding and pre-booked. One of our party has a dairy allergy and we phoned ahead and they gave us confidence all would be well and it was. There were a good number of non-dairy options and the manager went to great lengths to take us through all the allergens on the menu. All the staff were attentive and we never had to wait for anything even though the restaurant was full. I should also mention the food as it was excellent. A definite repeater.

Last week after Christmas shopping with my son and my friend in Romford town centre, we decided to grab a bite to eat, and I had a hankering for some Turkish food. We found a lovely little Turkish restaurant on the high street. We first noticed the nice outdoor area at the front, but the interior was nicely decorated as well (the ‘wine wall’ in particular took my fancy). They have an open kitchen so you can see the food on offer and watch it being cooked; the delicious smells hit us as soon as we walked in. Luckily they weren’t busy, as we had not made a reservation. We all had mixed kebabs, and we all enjoyed them a great deal. It is not the best Turkish restaurant in Romford, but it is certainly in my top three! They offer two for one cocktails, but be sure to make it clear that you only want two (we ended up with four as they thought we wanted two each). My Pina Colada was lovely and my friend definitely enjoyed his Daiquiri. They have a range of large milkshakes, so my son ordered the Oreo one for his dessert. Overall this restaurant offers great food at a reasonable price, with great service, in a nice setting. We are highly likely to visit again in the near future!

So disappointed with Mangal Meze after being a loyal customer for years. Food arrived cold, barely cooked and without any sauces or dips. When I phoned the restaurant directly, at first they just kept saying it wasn’t them! I then got passed around to different people and finally spoke to the owner and said how disappointed we were and how bad the food was. All he kept saying was it was the driver’s fault. Yet I pointed out, the driver didn’t cook the food. He wouldn’t take any responsibility at all. He wouldn’t send us a new order, all he suggested was calling Uber eats and getting a refund, so I said we wouldn’t be coming there again. Such a shame, as we’d eaten there before and had deliveries that were lovely! This was worst than a cold McDonald’s. Do not recommend.

This place was recommended. So on arrival first impressions were good. Girls served us fairly quickly with drinks. Later a gentleman came over and took our order. Unfortunately from there on it went down hill. Another 3 tables arrived after us and was served their food. We then approached a lady and asked where our starter was, as we'd been there an hour. Nobody seemed to have any idea. We decided to leave as this was unbelievable. The man said we didn't need to pay for our drink but we did anyway as we didn't want him to think he'd done a good thing! They made us late for an event we'd booked and also delayed the process of us eating something beforehand and ruined out evening out. Been to many Turkish restaurants and service has always been quick and efficient. Being Turkish ourselves we expected a little better as we are aware of how a service should be done. We will not be visiting this place again unfortunately the owner wasn't there to witness the mess as I'm sure it would have been running more efficiently.

The most rudest of waiters, didn't catch his name unfortunately. My friend and I sat down and ordered the platter for 2 people. Asked him if we could change one of the cold Mezze's to a different one. No was the answer. I told him I was allergic to fish so if we could change that particular one that would be great. He then said no fish don't worry. My friend said but the menu states cod which is fish. No, no fish he replied again, ok?! So we were like okkk.... he took the menus and went off. We were confused so then went online to Google the restaurants menu. It stated quite clearly stated Tarama which underneath it says cod paste! So we called him back and said what we've ordered IS fish so him saying it's not was wrong. His attitude was just rude and he said I told you no fish. He then brought the menu over and pointed to it so we said yes that's cod paste which is fish. He then said "I told you no fish, I've ordered olives instead". We then said you never said that!! We don't even like olives so that's not even a good enough substitute! He said he told us this but he quite clearly didn't as we wouldn't have agreed to something we didn't like! His whole demeanour was rude, the way he stood there with his arms crossed then saying what do you want and looked rather intimidating. At this point I then said nothing, we're going forget it. He still stood there over us, hardly moved out the way as we left either. Was just rude. We went on to Shish Legends about a 15 min walk where we were greeted by friendly staff, able to change a mezze with no problem and a lot cheaper too!!!

This restaurant is always friendly and welcoming. Even if you don't book they try their hardest to find you a table. The food is well cooked and well presented, served in a timely manner by staff who know what they are doing. I would recommend this place to eat over any other in Romford . They are also willing to accommodate large parties.

We'd requested to remove all pomegranate due to allergies, but the starters arrived covered in it. Although it was quickly replaced. If you ask to takeaway leftovers, you have to scrape it at the table yourself, rather than discreetly boxing it up for you.

Me and my daughters visit that restaurant for girls only lunch . I’m very very fussy but this time I have to say I have no reason for any complaints. Service was top , the manager and the waitress look after us but without disturbing or pushing. One of my girls had cigar burek and I have to say that was the best I ever try. When the main was served I was surprised not only from the quality but the also tge size of the portions My soup was generous portion too and probably 60% of it was meat . Sadly we had no room for dessert but we will be back soon to enjoy great food and amazing service. Thank you
