In a city like London where restuarants operate on a pile-’em-high basis, Dom’s Place is bucking the trend with their micro-approach to food and eating. With just eight tables, this Clapham restaurant knows a thing of two about keeping dining out intimate. Dom’s place serves up fragrant dishes of Turkish classics, old and contemporary to diners in search of something a little different on Lower Clapham Road in east London.
Famous among Clapham locals for their uncompromising promotion of great Turkish food, Dom’s Place, and its enormously popular takeaway service, is a leading light in London’s Turkish food scene. From light bites of halloumi and couscous to full On the Plate specials like kofte, hamsi (whitebait), and classic Turkish mix grills, there’s enough choice on this thankfully short menu to garner the team a legion of devoted fans at their Lower Clapham Road eatery.
While Dom’s Place is resolutely home to some of Clapham’s finest Turkish food, there are hints of London in evidence if diners care to look closely – most notably in their coffee. Coffee enjoys a special status in Turkish dining, so it can come as no surprise that the Lower Clapham Road favourite chooses its roasts wisely. Favouring Broadway Market’s Climpson & Sons to provide Dom’s Place with the finest beans in the capital means that those heading over to east London’s best spot for Turkish food can look forward to an excellent brew to round off their meal.
Food was superb and nice friendly service. I've been a few times now and it's always been decent. Will no doubt be heading there again soon
