“Tasty food, great atmosphere, book a table”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

We were visiting Chester for the weekend and were recommended to try this restaurant. So glad we did, it was amazing, the food was delicious. It;s always a good sign when the locals eat in too. It's just a short walk from the Railway Station (towards the Cathedral & City Centre)

We had the Hot Mezze Starter, Fried Halloumi Cheese, Turkish Sausage, Lamb Meat Balls and Hot Chicken Wings. I then had Lamb Meatballs with rice for my main course and my partner had the Lamb Stew with rice. Service was good, attentive but not over the top. We were amazed when we got the bill, great value for money. We couldn't eat another thing!

“Excellent service, friendly and easy going staff, nice food”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

The food was good...not 5 star cuisine but something different and really big portions. The thing that most impressed was the staff. They were friendly and had a really good chat with them. They actually knew what they were talking about when it came to the food and didnt seem forced or rehearsed.

Highly reccomend here for eating out with friends or family. Dont let the location put you off!

“Enjoyable Visit”
Reviewed 20 April 2014 via mobile

After checking out reviews on Trip Advisor for where to go for dinner we decided to go to Istanbul BBQ and it didn't disappoint. We had a hot mezze platter with the most moist and flavoursome halloumi I have ever had! For main course my partner had a mixed grill which he enjoyed and I ordered Iskande which was a mixture of kofta, lamb and chicken kebab covered in a garlic white sauce, topped with a tomato sauce- it was gorgeous!!
Both of these were served along with salad and rice, our plates were massive and for £15.95 each they are great value for money!!! Neither of us had room for dessert so enjoyed the rest of our bottle of wine and we weren't rushed from our table. The staff were very knowledgable and helpful and were cracking jokes with the couple next to us. Lovely atmosphere and lovely food, would definitely return. Would recommend to anyone who fancies something a little different!
