A hidden gem that will rival Mangals and Cirrik of Dalston which are the two best Turkish Ockabashi in London. It is close to Bricklane and Shoreditch, staff are friendly and best of all the food is cooked to perfection. You need try their grilled ribs and chops, in my opinion the best in London and I have been a regular of the best Turkish in the last 20 years. Be warned, the food is very addictive!

London’s Bethnal Green Road is jam-packed with fantastic ethnically diverse restaurants, and among the best of them is the Azka Mediterranean Meze. A warmly welcoming family run restaurant, Azka is strongly influenced by the Turkish background of its owners, the history and tradition of the country woven with the laid back, urban style of the East End of London. In addition to its main dining space, Azka Mediterranean Meze restaurant offers shisha, making it a popular meeting point for the younger Turkish community in the area as well as others looking for that authentic experience. Priding themselves on bringing together the best of Turkey’s regional cuisine, the Azka Mediterranean Meze team use authentic herbs and spices and recipes passed down through the generations in a vibrant menu of ocakbasi cooked specialties. Serving food throughout the day and in to the night, Azka has a broad appeal, as well-suited to quick lunches with colleagues on a budget as to lavish meals later on.
