Reputedly the first restaurant in Glasgow to specialise in Turkish char-grills and Anatolian cuisine, this aptly named eatery is tricked out with ethnic artefacts (check out the Ottoman corner) – although most attention focuses on the smoky output on the open kitchen, where skewered meats are shown the flames. Hand-baked ‘cushion’ breads start things off nicely, before the menu trawls its way through an extensive selection of hot and cold mezze – from tarama and tabbouleh to cigeri (diced lamb’s liver with parsley, tomatoes and onions). Main-course grills take in everything from the ubiquitous lamb and chicken in various forms to marinated veal, wings and ribs. Also check out the various pide (boat-shaped Turkish ‘pizzas’), as well as the steaks and seafood specials. Raki, Efes beer and Middle Eastern wines add to the vibe, and there’s belly dancing every Saturday night.
