Authentic Turkish cuisine has arrived in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter with the opening of Konya’s Gold, named after a historic foodie town in Turkey’s Anatolia region. Small and intimate, the restaurant seats 28 people and exudes a Mediterranean vibe infused with Arabian influences. Apt, given Turkey’s unique culinary heritage at the crossroads of East and West.
The tile mosaics, ornate curtains and al fresco dining courtyard all add to the subtle air of exoticism. The chef is an expert in both Turkish and Syrian cuisine, and the menu reflects this dual heritage. Starters include baba ghanoush, tabbuleh, falafel and mixed meze.
Mains include a number of fish dishes featuring sea bass, salmon and sea bream. From the charcoal grill come all the traditional meaty options including lamb kofte, lamb chops, chicken shish and chicken kofte, as well as chicken steaks and wings. These are all part of the mega mix platter (£32.99). Guests can choose from a range of accompanying sides including salads and chips. Pizzas include chicken shawarma and lamb kofte.
The restaurant does a line in exotic mocktails, and also offers coffees and baklava - the traditional Turkish pastry and honey confection, to help diners round off their meals.
