There's a focus on authenticity at this Turkish restaurant and bar in the backstreets of Spitalfields, much of it coming from a traditional Turkish charcoal grill kept white hot and busy.
Outside of the kebabs, lamb chops, mixed grills, spicy chicken wings and chargrilled sardines, there's a solid selection of mezze. Expect tabbouleh, houmous, taramasalata, falafel and grilled haloumi served with salad. Sides are kept simple – think rice, chips, seasonal veg and suzme yoghurt.
And to drink? It's BYOB, so grab a bottle en-route. There's also Turkish coffee, and it looks as strong as it should.
Enjoy the capital's macabre past at our restaurant near to the historical hunting grounds of ‘Jack the Ripper’. We are located in a secluded alley close to Liverpool Street station, in east London.
