Square Meal Review of Ishtar ?

With its smart staff, white napery & curved copper ‘ceiling’ dotted with lights, Ishtar makes a statement of intent: this is no ordinary Turkish restaurant. It rams home the point with rich flavours, slightly fussy presentation & a menu that runs from borek & kofte to goats’ cheese, walnut & beetroot salad or a surprise rendering of asparagus with Italian garnishes. The charcoal grill is a significant player, bestowing a smoky flavour on marinated aubergines or skewered chicken (which arrives with a tomato butter sauce). Set lunch & express menus are a big draw, & the drinks list includes a couple of Turkish wines; there’s also a handy selection of virgin cocktails. The gussying-up of a normally down-to-earth style can feel awkward, although things would improve if staff dropped their snooty attitude.
