Authentic Turkish cuisine right on St. Kathrine Docks: Kilikya’s means you’ll never ever run out of first-rate Turkish treats or amazing coffee again. Ali Eren Balikel pays a culinary tribute to his home in the Kilikya region in Turkey, meaning we get to enjoy glimpses of succulent food on a regular basis. The many wonderful Mezes and home made Turkish pastries are lovingly made from organic produce and offer a light and healthy choice. Located at Ivory House, you get to experience sophisticated food and a warm and friendly, very personal service. Oh, and have we mentioned the coffee?
You won’t find anybody that’s more immersed in the London restaurant business than Ali Eren Balikel. The manager and founder of Kilikya’s Turkish Deli even wrote his master’s thesis on ‘Mediterranean Cuisine in London’, leading him to start his own place on St. Kathrine Docks. Good for us. Because his lovingly prepared authentic Turkish food and simply amazing coffee is as unique as it is light and healthy. Eren is proud to offer a wide range of homemade dishes containing organic produce and regionally sourced ingredients.
Try Kilikya’s wonderful hot or cold Meze, succulent treats that contain the flavour of the Mediterranean. Gor for some traditional Turkish pastries, and do stay for the home made cakes. In a hurry? Grab a freshly squeezed juice or frozen yoghurt, smoothie or just some fresh fruit. Kilikya’s at Ivory House offer a selection of daily made dishes, and we recommend stopping by regularly to experience the wide range of taste and flavour of authentic Turkish cuisine first-hand. By the way, Kilikya’s is happy to cater their great healthy and light selections to your event or company gathering.
Group of four of us, table by the window overlooking the dock. Excellent food (had the set 3 course dinner menu), very friendly staff, will definitely be back.
Great food, great staff, great view :) Can't wait to go there again!
Really good quality food with excellent service. Expect to pay around £6 for a starter, £18 main meal and £18 bottle of wine
This restaurant is a little gem hidden away at St. Katherine's Dock. Nestled in the shadow of The Tower Of London & Tower Bridge. This far exceeds dining in a chain restaurant. Individual service and superb food, character and charisma. Ali & Andy will be pleased to attend your needs
Good....Restaurant accepted reservation using Tastecard and helpful when switching to earlier time at short notice. Food quality 3.5/6 Service 4/6 Location 5/6 Wine list value 4.5/6 Not so good.....Had looked at website which detailed discounted daily set menus but on arrival these were not mentioned. Accept Tastecard bookings usually don't get set menus on reduced basis but would have been nice to have option. Al la Carte menu quite pricey for some courses. E.g 4 pieces if Baklava as a dessert £8.95 .. Most expensive I have ever had ! Value 3/6 Summary ... Pricey without any discounts but eating in area is generally expensive. Nice location particularly on a Sunny day when can eat Al Fresco. Overall 4/6
THE FOOD WAS VERY GOOD. IT WAS PACKED BUT WE DIDN'T HAVE TO WAIT FOR A TABLE AS WE RESERVED EARLIER. IT TOOK SOME TIME FOR US TO EVEN GET MENUS BUT IT WAS A SATURDAY AND THERE WERE THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE OVER AT THE TOWER OF LONDON NEARBY. OUR GUESTS FROM AMERICA LOVED IT NONETHELESS.
Good - helpful & pleasant staff- good food. Disappointed pre-set menu as experienced earlier in year not available on a Saturday so ended up paying a lot more for the same dish experienced ealier in the year.
Excellent service, friendly staff good food with extensive menu to choose from. There is a relaxed friendly family atmosphere suitable for all ages whether it be a celebration or a cost dinner for two
Fabulous food and fabulous location, sat outside in the sun facing the marina. Glad I booked a table as very busy. Only negative, keep an eye on the service charge!
great food, nice restaurant, the starter meze for 4 people was a bit small and they didn't have a children's option but overall nice food and nice place to meet for lunch or dinner
