We really enjoyed our meal here on a night when we couldn't get into any of Chester's better known places. We were glad we didn't. This place was superb and fully deserving of it's high ranking on TA.

Go to Chester every December for a Christmas shopping weekend, looked on trip adviser for somewhere different to eat and stumbled across Istanbul BBQ, thought we would give it a try, we were so glad we did, the food was delicious, very fresh tasty and plentiful, the prices are very good for the size of the portions, we shared the hot mixed starter and then shared the meat platter with rice and salad and the lovely fresh bread it was more than enough, just enough room to share a portion of warm Baklava and ice cream, They serve traditional Turkish beer and have a nice selection of wines, The staff are all very welcoming and friendly, we will return on our next trip to Chester.

7pm Monday evening, pre booked a table for 2 ...
FOOD- Turkish grill. We shared the cold platter & mini lahmacun as starters. For mains, Heavens half kebab ( skewer of chicken & skewer of lamb ) and the Guvec (tender lamb stew ). Both served with rice & salad. The food was very tasty and good portion sizes. We had a couple of Effes beers with the meal.
SERVICE- Food served promptly by the pleasant waitress.
ATMOSPHERE- It was quiet when we arrived but gradually filled up with other diners.
DECOR- Kebab house style with an open kitchen. Tables & chairs. Clean.
OVERALL- A "top notch" Turkish grill house. Worth a visit....

Very traditional Turkish food- plenty of choice.Pide, lahmacun, stews, kebabs (not processed meat) grilled cheese and they have a real charcoal grill. Not really expensive when you consider the fab fresh tasty bread and salads included yum yum. So relaxed.Very clean too.
Ordered the cheese and 2 lahmacuns - they are only £3.50 each, tasty and with a kick.Was very full..couldn`t manage the 2nd.Husband managed it though ha ha

Going back to somewhere which has more than pleased the first time can be dangerous. So the return trip to Istanbul BBQ was tentative. We need not have worried. On a cold Tuesday night, ( I had booked but it wasn't necessary) we were subsumed by a warm welcome and the rich, but not overpowering delights of the kitchen. My Partner ordered the Chicken Kebab and remembering that last time she was unable to make much headway into the rice or very generous mixed salad, cut out the first and asked for a small portion of the second, I ordered the Iskender - Lamb Kofti, Chicken Kebab and Savory mince balls. I was beaten into submission before I could finish everything. My "full-upness" was helped by a portion of the leg of lamb which the owner removed from the oven after eight hours of cooking and brought over to me to try. Next time.........
