Holy cow, yum! This place was great!
I ordered the Falafel and also a portion of bulgar rice. I was blown away by how flavourful and delicious everything on my plate was. I got to try a bite of my boyfriend's dish, which was Chicken Beyti, and I had major food envy!
You have to try this place! It was so yummy, fresh and delicious!
I loved this place! I cannot stress enough how much I don't usually like Greek and Turkish food and how I have to have my arm twisted to go in anywhere that focuses on bread, oil and chickpeas. I was feeling more flexible than usual and decided that I would be able to find something I liked on the menu, since my friend was so set on going here.
Well, it was a revelation! First, the service was lovely - it was a very quiet lunchtime, so we had quite a lot of attention from the very friendly guy who was serving. We were also starving, so ordered hummus and some yoghurt and cucumber/mint thing with flat bread to start with. It was LOVELY! Also, my friend ordered fried cheese, (equivalent of haloumi) which made me physically recoil at the thought of it, but to be brave, I tried it. And it was really nice - really firm, salty and a lovely deep flavour. I never thought I'd write that about cooked cheese!
We chose main courses from the lunchtime special menu - I had the chicken, and my friend had the lamb. I only eat lamb when I don't know I'm eating it (since I had a pet lamb when I was young). But, again, I was brave and tried it and wow, it was delicious! The chicken was also fantastic - really nicely cooked, wrapped in bread with a very light yoghurt and chilli sauce and a lovely large salad.
I had to admit to having completely changed my mind about several things - Turkish food, fried cheese and lamb. Can't wait to go back!
If you're looking for a great Turkish restaurant then this is the place to go. The food is delicious! The lamb beyti with bulgar wheat is one of the best items on the menu!
The wait staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The wine list contains a lot of Turkish bottles which are very nice indeed.
Definitely a great place to go for a relaxed meal.
They also have a take away place next door for late night eating or on the go food!
This is a nice restaurant where they cook the food in front of you on a huge barbeque. The portions are huge and the food is really tasty.
Staff are friendly. The tables are a bit too close together but other than that its a nice different place to eat on Lordship Lane.
This place is a real gem; no nonsense Turkish food to eat in or takeaway. Truely some of the best Turkish food I've had outside Turkey; for takeaway, the lamb shish with "rice" ( actually bulgar wheat) is stellar. If you're eating in, consider the quail if it's still on the menu. You won't leave here hungry, but rather with the warm glow of Anatolian soul food inside you.
very good food, felt like being i turkey again, nice fresh meat, with friendly turkey customer service! :) so good ive been twice and plan to go again!
Lovely Turkish food! I had the mixed grill with chips, a beautifully prepared salad and a wicked tasting garlic sauce. The meat was juicy, tender and plenty full. Very well priced and the service was top notch!! Its my local restaurant so I go as often as possible. I would highly recommend to anyone who enjoys a quailty mixed grill. Well done Hisar!! Keep it up ;)
