Mangal means: Fresh ingredients grilled to perfection over an open charcoal fire. Mangal is an Anatolian term for an open charcoal fire used for cooking and around which family and friends gather to eat, drink and socialize. Best Mangal on North End Road uses the freshest ingredients and char-grills them to perfection, providing you with an unforgettable Turkish experience along the way.
QUALITY at Best Mangal: All the meat used at Best Mangal is Halal and bought direct by our specialist meat buyer, from Smithfield market, London’s largest meat market.
He goes himself to pick and choose the highest quality cuts of meat on that particular day of the market.
The lamb doner at all the Best Mangal restaurants are “yaprak”, this means layered. We use lamb fillet from the shoulder and then marinated over night. In the morning the fillets are placed one on top of the other on the spit and pressed down so that it can be cooked and sliced downwards in the well known style of the doner. They are prepared daily for each restaurant by our hard working butchers and if not finished at the end of the night anything remaining is disposed of. So apologies if near the latter part of the night this particular item runs out!!
The meat dishes were good and well cooked! Starters were lovely too
My experience is very good and the food is very delightful
Thoughts and feelings about this.... It is a very good experience
Excellent service, friendly staff, great food! Always a pleasure eating here! Must make a booking, it is always busy :) Family friendly restaurant 👍🏻 Thank you!
We were a table of 4 plus a child and we felt looked after. The child broke a plate and service was very prompt to clean, provide a new one and show kindness to the baby which started crying for the shock. One of us required gluten free meals and the waiter was very helpful to find a suitable option. Among all of us we had a couple of appetizers, a sharing meat platter for 2, a pide (turkish pizza), and a main of fish. Were all very pleased with both quality, quantity, and price which made us feel happy to leave a tip.
My husband and I chose this restaurant as it was near to Nell's jazz club that we were visiting later. We agreed that we we would actually make a journey to West Kensington in future just to visit the Mangal 11. The food was cooked to perfection, we enjoyed our chicken main courses, salads were good and their bread with the humous was so good that we had to stop ourselves finishing it off as we would not have finished our main course. The staff were efficient and very friendly and the restaurant surroundings are spotlessly clean. We will definitely return.
Service was good. Food was OK - we had mixed platter, lamb v good, everything fine, nothing special. Loos down quite a steep staircase so not for those with any mobility problems. Restaurant floor v crowded and table v close together but it was Valentine's day - restaurant must have a good reputation as it was fully booked despite not v romantic venue (white tiled floor, takeaway at front of shop, but nice to see prep area with good meat on display). Maybe nicer in summer with rear doors open but dark when we were there and I couldn't tell. However pleasant atmosphere because staff were so nice.
Great food, better atmosphere. Full of families and other groups. We had the mixed platters and the shared main between four of us. Fabulous way to spend a Saturday evening. Waiting staff all very friendly so all in all a great night. This was our second visit and will definitely go back.
It was such a pleasant surprise! Lovely food and service. The valentines decor and friendly waiter who gave me a rose made my night! superb food and I would recommend it as the best turkish restaurant in West London!
Amazing food and really helpful and friendly staff. The second time there now and can't wait to go there again. Love the Turkish Mint Tea they give you at the end of the meal.
