About Koza Restaurant & Bar

You can’t miss Koza Restaurant & Bar’s diner-style outlet on the corner of Lambeth Road and Kennington Road, opposite London’s Imperial War Museum in Lambeth. It might look like an American diner styled by a UFO-mad entrepreneur, but this gem is 100% a Turkish charcoal grill restaurant, serving all manner of dishes and drinks to a loyal group of locals. You should join in, too: the menu is extensive and the atmosphere inviting. Some go so far as to say that Koza serve up London’s best Turkish cuisine.

More about Koza Restaurant & Bar, London

Koza Restaurant & Bar is all about the table menu at its Kennington Road premises in Lambeth, and this is one seriously extensive offering we’re talking about. Cold and hot mezeler (starter platters) are the obligatory way to kick things off, if only because the hummus, imam bayaldi (stuffed and roasted aubergines, whose name roughly translates to fainting imam), and succulent sucuk izgara (skewered grilled Turkish sausages) come with a side of Koza’s fresh and homemade Turkish bread. This is how a feast at one of London’s best Turkish restaurants should begin.

Ever popular, Koza Restaurant & Bar’s grill dishes are properly Turkish. There are items that would be familiar to any Londoner here – shish kebab, chicken and lamb kofte – but Koza really gets its grill on with less well-known specialties: kaburga (lamb spare ribs marinated with oregano and olive oil), pirzola (seasoned and grilled lamb chops), and the ultimate Koza Mixed Grill. Seafood dishes, and a truly unmissable selection of house specials, vegetarian options and more join the long, long list at this Kennington Road Turkish restaurant down Lambeth’s Kennington Road.

The restaurant was friendly with a great atmosphere. The service and the food were excellent and it wasn't overpriced. I would recommend it to anyone.

We had an excellent lunch here. Very nice place, lots of space, air conditioned, friendly welcome, fabulous food, nice wine, good service. We were not hassled to move once we finished our meal. Would recommend this place. Very convenient for the Imperial War Museum, being directly across the road from it, but if you are not visiting the IWM, it is certainly worth walking 10 mins from Waterloo to get to it.

I booked this restaurant for its location. When I reached it I was worried by the rather scruff entrance but I have to say that once inside I found much I liked. The service and especially the food at lunchtime were excellent. There were three of us and we all had the two course menu for less than £9.00. This place is very good value.

Very welcoming, great food, lots of it, great wine and excellent service! Would definitely go back! Can't wait to see once it has been refurbished!

Do not open bottles of wine before the customer ask you to and place your menus on the tables before the customers arrive NOT until they are asked for as had been our experience at Koza on 15th December.

Great food all through; well worth the money. The service was good too. However the environment wasn't that cozy or nice and the live music wasn't either.
