“Do yourself a favour - go here and have the lamb !”
Reviewed 23 January 2012

We'd walked past this restaurant several times before we decided to go in and give it a try ... and we're so glad we did. The food is delicious and the service friendly and attentive. They have an indoor barbecue so the grilled dished are really tasty - the lamb chops in particular are outstanding. The kleftico is also delicious and the meat falls off the bone. The Turkish red wine is also v good. It's our new favourite place to go for a quick, tasty supper. If you're really hungry, the mixed hot starters are lovely, but make sure you leave room for a main course.

“Delicious food with attentive service”
Reviewed 7 December 2011

Had a really delicious meal with an authentic and varied menu to choose from (including vegetarians). The service was excellent, but not too much that you felt uncomfortable and they were accommodating for any requests or variations to meals. Would recommend trying the turkish wine. Good prices for a London restaurant.

“A wonderful meal”
Reviewed 29 November 2011

We had never stayed in the Earls Court area and we were amazed at the number of restaurants, of all types, in the area. We enjoy ethnic food while in London, primarily for the value, but also for the experience. This was our first Turkish meal and we will return. The starter sausages (sucuk) were amazing. But the Yogurtlu Tavuk Şiş (marinated chicken in yogurt) was unbelievable. We had booked online and they offered 50% off food - it was a Sunday night and that might not always be the case, but the menu is quite affordable even at full price. Friendly staff, willing to explain the menu.

“Istanbul in London”
Reviewed 23 November 2011

Found this Turkish gem by accident, walking past one evening. We went about 100 yards past talking about how inviting it looked in the evening light and how much we missed Turkish food; so we turned back and went in. The Turkish hospitality was immediately evident, all waiters well presented and helpful. Especially loved watching the guy making the breads and barbecuing the fish behind his glass screen while we waited for our meal. The food is really excellent, portions good and the restaurant is well kept and clean so you feel secure about eating here! Atmosphere is good with low background music that doesn't do your head in or interrupt conversation. Well worth a visit - we went twice in one week and will definitely return next time we're in London. Well done Marmara Mangal - great food!!
