Meze Mangal is a diamond in the rough on not the nicest stretch of Lewisham Way (or maybe it is the nicest stretch of Lewisham Way...). It's on our walk home from the station, so we end up here almost once a week. The chicken kebabs (pilic sis) are great. The hummus is the best I've ever had. The Patlican... More

A true taste of Turkey in busy Lewisham! This restaurant had been recommended to us by the manager of the nearby pub The Talbot, and we were certainly not disappointed. We loved watching the chefs cooking in the open kitchen and traditional oven. The place was packed but we didn't wait, food was fresh and tasty and the staff was... More

Our son in law and daughter took us out for dinner last night. We had an amazing meal at Meze Manga. Everyone was very helpful, kind and welcoming. The food was delicious, highly recommended this restaurant and the Turkish champagne. Enjoy!

since he has decorated the place he put up his prices quite a lot for what you get and the quality has gone down hill , personally i would suggest to go else where as they would offer you some added extras like some rice or fries on your plate near your meal instead of just a boring salad and...

Was quite full on a friday night, still managed to get a table. Houmous was quite good. Great options for vegetarians available. Nice place to dine.

As a Turkish living in London for years, this restaurant is terrible on Turkish mezes. They are tasteless and most importantly as the ingredients and cooking way, all the mezes here are not real Turkish mezes. They are bad imitation of Turkish food. Moreover, the staff are rude and do not give enough importance to their customers. Definitely not recommend!

We have been visiting the Meze Mangal for several years and have enjoyed every meal; the food is of the highest quality, we usually have a mixed meze starter followed by one of the meat dishes cooked over the open wood-burning range, always perfectly cooked and very tasty. The prices represent very good value for money, as do the wines.... More

First time I went there 2 years ago and I promised myself that I will definitely come back one day. Went there again and my experience was not so good. I mean this place is not bad...it's just boring. Oh and dirty, sticky old menu cards are not acceptable. Time for a change. Food is okay.

Always a good experience. Friendly staff, good service, tasty food, a lovely place to eat. Do book in advance though as it can be too busy to just drop in, and the meze is the best thing on the menu - if there's a group of you just splash out on the meze for 4 and order some other items,... More
