Further Information

Lokkanta Meze & Barbecue, located along Westbourne Grove in Bayswater, invites diners into a universe of Turkish cuisine, especially that of Middle Eastern-style grilled meat and vegetable dishes. Guests should consider an entrée before they dare to try a succulent piece of meat, and Lokkanta is well-equipped with meze platters for sharing around the table. Choose between vine leaves filled with rice or borek – pastries filled with cheese or spinach. If you can’t decide in favour of one appetizer or another, order up a mixed platter and try the full variety of Turkish food offered by Lokkanta’s West London kitchen.

When it comes to main courses at Lokkanta Meze & Barbecue, the traditional charcoal grill or Turkish mangal takes centre stage. A special kind of barbecue, the mangal adds a distinctive smoky taste to premium cuts of British meat sourced from trusted local London butchers. Choose either lamb from the skewer or minced chicken kebabs, all prepared with care and served with rice and salad. A sweet finish at this Bayswater hotspot is guaranteed with a sweet and satisfying filo pastry baklava or a Turkish rice pudding. Book now!

Excellent! We booked for dinner but changed it to lunch. Lovely waitress, so pleasant and helpful. The starter was terrific. The main was delicious, freshly cooked tender kebabs, faultless! We were given baklava and Turkish delight which was a lovely. Very reasonable price as well. Authentic Turkish music too! Great atmosphere and ambiance! We will definitely go there again. Thanks Lokkanta Meze & Barbeque...great!!!

We had a fabulous meal at Lokkanta Meze & Barbeque. Staff were really friendly and it had a great atmosphere. I love the bread and dips they gave us and the lamb chops were amazing I can't wait to go back! With BYO it's a great value night out and I highly recommend

Delicious food and friendly and helpful staff. We had the cold meze selection, which was excellent, and a couple of dishes from the mangal, which again were delicious. After the main course we were given a couple of pieces of baklava and a cup of Turkish coffee on the house, which we thought was really generous. The person who served us could not have been more friendly or helpful. We will certainly go back there.

The meal started very well with a nice Efes beer and the free appetizers they give you to begin your meal. It kept going with the most tender chicken I ever had. We finished the meal with an excellent tea accompanied with a raki, the national Turkish drink. And, oh they also give you a complementary dessert. Don't miss that chance !

Every single thing we ate was amazing! Lots of complimentary appetisers and bread meant that we thought we had ordered too much food! We had a starter and a main each and were stuffed by the end, but the food was far too good to waste, so we made sure and cleared our plates! Very reasonably priced too!

Good Turkish food in generous portions at a low price. The service is polite and fast. A little too fast, actually, as you do feel rushed by the servers hovering around you to clear plates and dishes all the time. I recommend this place wholeheartedly if it is a quick meal you are after.

It's not plush here but the food is delicious and the waiting staff are so kind and accommodating. It's great value for money and it's BYO too, with supermarkets in 1 min to make those purchases. I can only say one thing; GO THERE!

First visit here and it won't be our last! Special offer gave us four taster-size meze starters and lavash bread free when ordering any main course. We had the special mixed grill which was perfectly cooked and succulent. Great staff, prices and location.

Sehr leckerer Grillteller! Super freundliches Personal! Kleines Lokal mit ca 10 Tischen - nicht besonders schick aber sehr lecker und faire Preise! Das beste türkische Restaurant in London! - Einzige Kritik: Der Nachtisch wurde in einer Alufolienschale serviert - sehr unschön!

Great service. Very informal and simple setting. Food generally very good. Some of the kebabs were too salty for my taste. Appetiser portions are modest. The platter (3-4 people) was generous and very well presented. Lovely coffee accompanied with some complimentary baklava. Will go again for sure!

Delicious food! Good service and a very friendly atmosphere. No wine, but we bought a bottle across the road, which was then served to us during the meal, so that wasn't a problem. We'll definitely return!

Faultless food, complementary mini appetiser and dessert, very helpful waitress, Barbara. Would definitely go again if in the area. Interior is quite basic, more like a cafe than a restaurant if that matters.

We were truly satisfied by the meze we tasted (hot meze platter, spicy salad, aubergine meze). The food is very tasty and the staff extremly friendly. Although simple, the interior is cosy.

Great food and attentive staff, with very reasonable prices. Love that it's not licensed so you can bring your own wine and loads of places to buy wine nearby.

As the waiter said, "small place, big flavor" one of the best meals I had in London. Come hungry and order a lot. Can't recommend enough.
