Right in the heart of Sunderland’s City Centre, you can experience a taste of Turkey at Grand Didyma on John Street. With its warm and cosy decor and authentic Turkish cuisine cooked from scratch, you’ll feel right at home. Start off by sharing some meze like the halloumi or calamari rings before tucking into some mouthwatering meats cooked to perfection on the charcoal grill, some fresh fish or seafood, or another Turkish favourite like the vegetable moussaka or the kleftiko (lamb shank slowly cooked in the oven with the chef's special sauce, served with mashed potato). To guarantee a table at this Turkish gem, making a reservation in advance is recommended.
We booked a table for two for 6:30. We arrived at 6:20. The restaurant was in darkness. We went to a different restaurant. Very, very disappointed.
A great restaurant. We have visited Grand Didyma about 6 times now and always been great service and gorgeous food. Highly recommend this place to anyone
Lovely food and reasonably priced, would happily return for another meal. Staff were polite and offered recommendations when unsure what to order. All in all another nice restaurant in Sunderland
