A searing-hot grill at this unpretentious Turkish ocakbasi restaurant sends out barbecue aromas across West Kensington, attracting locals in droves – many bent on a takeaway. At the back, Best Mangal’s dining room is decorated in low-key Middle Eastern style, with simple but comfy furniture joined by TV screens showing Turkish football. Start with mixed hot or cold mezze & big baskets of chewy homemade bread, before moving on to the star attraction: grilled meat kebabs. Whether it’s lamb cis, chicken kofta or even spatchcocked quail, everything has been marinated in tangy spices & flavoured by the charcoal grill. Mains cost around £10, so you’re likely to leave sated & with minimal damage to your wallet, even with a few Efes beers & baklava thrown in.
