Wedding is Berlin’s second major Turkish area after Kreuzberg. Touted for years as the next happening spot, signs of gentrification are beginning to be visible. Volta opened to much fanfare, especially as it is part-owned by the chef behind Cookies and Cream, the not-so-secret vegan restaurant above the long-running Mitte nightclub. The space ticks the hipster boxes: exposed concrete walls, low-hanging industrial lamps and a make-shift long wooden bar. The place buzzes at night with a young crowd supping on cocktails or the flavoursome unfiltered beer from the nearby Eschenbräu brewery. The menu serves up familiar booze foods such as Caesar salad or Currywurst, as well as some fusion dishes like braised pork belly with five spice dip and raita. Everyone raves about the Volta burger, a solid wodge of rare mince, stacked with the usual trimmings, then doused in a spicy BBQ sauce and a sesame-brioche bun. The burger comes crowned with a couple of onion rings, a local Spreewald gherkin and hand-cut fries on the side.

Interesting menu/food (not sarcastic), quality ingredients, good atmosphere, easy to get to - definitely go (book a table on busier nights)
I'm not really a burger person but was staying across the road and feeling hungry. What a great surprise! Delicious food, excellent beer and wine, and really friendly, helpful service. Couldn't have been better, I thought. Strongly recommended.
Just back from Berlin and had to review this great little restaurant. Run by young talented and enthusiastic staff and offering a small but tasty menu. I had the burger ( lovely) but had food envy for the spicy prawns. Starters of beetroot with a sour cream dressing and salty toasted Sunflower seeds and a beansprout salad with beans and nuts and a lime dressing so good we ordered twice !
We were brought a soft sweet cake based pud with the most delicious delicate topping of cream and nuts. None of this does the food justice it was just delicious!
Atmosphere great- full of young cool locals - we are all 50 something but we were warmly welcomed and they even moved a few diners mid meal so we could have a table - the diners did not complain either. Probably best to book by text or online
