Turkish cuisine is known for its light and fresh dishes that are full of flavour and Gosht provides customers with just that, dishing up an authentic Mediterranean experience with familiar ingredients, herbs, oils and natural textures you’ll love. Open from midday, this stylish restaurant will wow you with its simple but tasty Middle Eastern dishes.
With a choice of hot or cold meze items, you have a selection of great traditional dishes to choose from. A must is the cold mixed platter featuring some of the most notable Turkish dips including hummus, tarama salata, cacik, spinach tarator and saksuka. For hot meze, the grilled octopus, a marinated tentacle with basil, oregano and olive oil, is well presented and looks impressive. The falafel and halloumi are also good options and are well liked by diners for their simplicity and freshness. For mains, the portion sizes are generous and the lamb and chicken shish were recommended by reviewers as being succulent, tender and spiced to perfection. The herb-seasoned lamb chops are also a favourite as are the beytis which are a choice of chicken shish or lamb kofta wrapped up in thin bread and covered in tomato sauce and yoghurt, and flavoured with Gosht’s butter sauce. Dessert offers even more eastern delicacies with baklava, banoffee pie and tiramisu, or you can finish your meal with a traditional Turkish coffee or tea.
Gosht also offers plenty of vegetarian choices, making sure to satisfy every vegetarian customer. On the drinks list, find a wide range of cocktails and wines to keep you going. The Oh My Gosht stands out as a signature drink and is made with vanilla vodka, passion fruit syrup, apple juice, strawberry and Prosecco.
