We went in 2pm  Bank holiday Monday 5 May.  We got seated, but were then ignored even though it was very quiet.  As they didn't seem interested in serving us (waiter was busy clearing out a cupboard) we left and had a lovely meal at 19 Numara Boş Cirrik instead.  A shame really as I had had fond memories of this place.

Should be 0 stars as I didn't get anything, but I have to give 1 star.....


Terrible service. It took more than 40 minutes for average food. I wouldn't recommend.


After a bad experience at the nearby Viva, we decided to explore this restaurant, with the grill in the back catching our attention. Notice, if you are sensitive to smoke, don't go near. THey have a charcoal barbeque in the back and when cooking lamb (which is most of the mains) it gets quite smokey all over the place. That said, one of the best middle eastern restaurantes I've been to. We ordered 2 starters each which were so plentiful that we didn't order any mains! Service can be slowish at times, but it's worth the wait. Lively enviroment, and quite a show to see the grill guys take care of your food. Definetely worth a try!


I have always gone to Cirrik down the road but wanted to try out this one for a comparison. It fell short. The starters were small and not worth the money. Bread had not been slathered in meat juice like they do at Cirrik. Then the main course - there are no extras. At Cirrik you get two onion dishes and salad. This was just very basic and my partner got served up the wrong dish. It was also quite pricey. Service was slow and by the time condiments reached us we had finished our meal. I think they could work on a few things. Not awful but no where near as good as Cirrik.


Well, I'm a regular here and for good reason. The meat is always succulent, flavoursome and in very generous portions. The staff are often friendly and attentive, though admittedly during the weekends it does become heavily packed. I have tried many other local places and Mangal 2 seems to have the right consistency going. I strongly recommend the reasonable Set Meal which has a bit of everything.
