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

What a lovely restaurant. Run with a personal touch. Food was scrumptious, and the coffee on the house made it taste even better! Thank you.

Went there this Sunday for a family meal and have been going there ever since they first opened as a small restaurant. It's just not the same anymore. Poor service. Warm drinks. Boring food. No atmosphere.

Lived in SE London for over 30 years. Heard a lot of good things about this place, but never been here in all the time it has been open. Kicking myself now. What a great place. Good friendly hospitality of the old school, honest food made with good ingredients, cooked in front of you in the open kitchen by chefs... More

Meze Mangal is a victim of its own success. It's still packed on most nights, but the last two times I've visited the service has been a bit slow, reactive and distracted. You know the kind of experience that starts well but ends up with you asking for the bill because the finished main course plates have been sitting in... More

My partner and I had dinner there just yesterday. The service was polite, chicken sis and lamb chops were succulent. Only flaw the cheap house wine... we have had better ones. All in all, a dining experience worth trying at a reasonable price. There is also (some) parking outside.

Very bad service, and the food is not as nice as it used to be + not good value for money based on portion size. Usually at Turkish restaurants, you get bread with a starter, but with this restaurant you have to pay. It has definitely gone downhill. We spoke to the manager about the service, but he didn't seem... More

Very over priced for what you get. Most Turkish restaurants you get pitta bread rice/ chips with your kebabs not this one just meat and salad. Lamb shish was tasteless would not recommend save your money family of four £50 and went home hungry.
