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!
Great food at affordable prices, was served quickly and service was good. Will definitely be back, although I felt that there should be more choices for vegetarians.
Lovely Cold Mezze - the bread was very good, as was the aubergine. The star of the show was the hot platter - lots of meat and rice. The lamb was outstanding.
Delicious food. Great service- my favourite Turkish place for take out or dine in. Casual atmosphere. Food is fresh as cooked perfectly. Bulgar is so tasty!
Charming restaurant. Great food and ample servings. The service by the owner, who was most gracious, and staff was friendly and efficient. Definitely a must visit.
Loads of freebies combined with great flavours, for a ridiculously low price made this an incredible find. Everyone in the party said they will be back!
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.
