Housed within the railway arches just minutes from Southwark tube, this Turkish hideout is a veritable cave of treasures & mosaics. Part of the Tas group, it’s one of the better branches if you want to indulge in mezze & grills; heaped platefuls keep diners satisfied, as do the all-smiling waiters. Bread, olives & dips arrive unbidden, & a sizeable contingent of veggie-friendly options is a plus, with patlican dolmasi (sun-dried aubergines stuffed with couscous & served with yoghurt) coming highly recommended. Desserts are exciting, too, with sütlaç (a rosewater-scented rice pudding) topping the bill; if you can’t manage pud, you can always buy some baklava from the adjoining shop for nibbling later. Turkish house wines are good value, & the flower-filled terrace is gorgeous in fair weather.
