Fez Mangal
© Jael Marschner

This compact, no-frills Turkish BYO on Ladbroke Groveis dominated by a huge charcoal grill. Deft hands move a line of hefty meat skewers (the main draw) hypnotically across its blistering surface, while billows of smoke disappear up into the cavernous copper hood.

A spotless glass fridge, displays the daily variety of seasoned lamb and chicken, as well as whole sea bass or bream, and own-made doner kebabs make slow revolutions behind the counter.

Scoop up simple vegetable dishes and dips, with heated slabs of flat bread while your meats sizzle. The succulent skewers come served on rice with a colourful trio of raw veg – carrots, purple cabbage and wild rocket (this is Notting Hill), or on bread, smothered in tomato sauce and sharp yoghurt. Turkish tea and baklava round off the meal.

Tables turn fast with a friendly efficiency here. Though it can get busy even on a weekday evening, waits to be seated rarely last long, and a black board highlights an occasionally enforced table share policy.

Since discovering this place, my husband and I go at least once a month for a reasonably-priced, tasty and quick meal. Everything we've had from their menu is excellent and fresh - we especially like the kebab sharing platter, chicken wings and lamb chops. Really like that you can bring your own wine with no corkage charged.

What a wonderful fabulous restaurant with great food and lovely atmosphere :-)

The best Kebabs and Turkish in London! Always made fresh, the staff are quick and pleasant. One of my favorites!

A real gem. There are often queues but the staff move at lightening speed ensuring the wait is never too long. And it's always worth the wait. Tender meat, delicious salads, BYO for eating in and takeaway also available.


The best restaurant I ever have been too, enjoying our meal very much, the staff are very welcoming and helpful. :) I will be recommending this place to all my mates and family ;)

Delicious food, lovely people. Packed every night... There's a good reason why!
