Enjoy appetising Turkish cuisine in Newcastle upon Tyne restaurants. Turkish restaurants in the UK used to be limited to simple kebab bars or grills. In recent years British diners, many after holidays in Turkey, have come to appreciate that this cuisine goes way beyond the shish or doner to offer a diverse range of menu options, from mezze to gozleme. Turkish restaurants in Newcastle upon Tyne include the familiar and the new, with traditional grill places now joined by contemporary cafes and informal diners offering cuisine from Istanbul, Anatolia and coastal Turkey. Turkish restaurants have established themselves as a popular aspect of Newcastle's nightlife.
