Delicious grilled meat specialties designed to satisfy the Middle Eastern and Turkish cuisine cravings of hungry customers are chiefly what’s on offer at Bayswater’s Lokkanta Meze & Barbecue. Easily competing with the local Brazilian BBQ fare in the neighbourhood, Lokkanta makes use of a special grill or mangal to cook up locally-sourced chicken and lamb shish and kebabs Accompanied by tasty side dishes and finished by sweet desserts, a meal here is memorable. If you’re vegetarian, you should still pay a visit – some of London’s best grilled vegetable and aubergine-based dishes are on the cards.
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!
Awesome service and even better food. My wife and I had a great time and the staff were really friendly. Would recommend others to visit this restaurant
A wonderful evening! Great food and terrific service. We enjoyed the meal from delicious meze (hummus, eggplant salad, olives and artichokes) included with our entrees, plus the outstanding red pepper dip...,warm, delicious bread. We had salmon ( crisp and perfectly cooked) with tabbouleh and grilled veggies... lamb shish with salad and rice. Outstanding food and service! Thank you Serhat for excellent service and conversation. A perfect evening. We look forward to returning.
Great value food, cooked fresh. I had chicken skewer cooked over a barbecue grill and it was so tender and tasty. Staff were attentive and friendly and we even got some complimentary dips with our starters, tea and turkish delight afterwards. Would definitely recommend.
