About Mangal II

Firing up the charcoal under the appetites of Dalston and Shacklewell, Mangal II is a Turkish ocakbasi restaurant whose centrepiece is a traditional charcoal grill, used to cook mouthwatering meat, seafood and vegetable dishes. Mangal II’s pedigree is assured, this being the second incarnation of entrepreneurial chef and former Istanbul resident Ali Dirik’s innovative restaurant concept. The first Mangal Ocakbasi gained a cult following in London in the early 90s, and here along Stoke Newington Road the success story continues. A huge selection of meze platters and a daily stew are good starting points for any meal here, with vegetarian and non-vegetarian salads all great options. Seafood such as grilled sea bass, marinated quail and lamb spare ribs, chicken beyti with yoghurt dressing, and vegetarian moussaka all come highly recommended.

Really reasonable and mountains of food, was delicious! Staff were lovely also. We both had hummus to start and I had veggie moussaka & my brother had a lamb shish, loads of salad and rice came with it and really tasty chilli sauce!

Great food, great portions. Staff were friendly and there honestly was nothing to complain about. Would recommend to anyone just wanting a nice low key Turkish meal.

Excellent food, good happy service. Three of us had different dishes from the extensive menu - 2 meat eaters and a vegetarian - and were each delighted with our choices.

We went to Mangal II for a work lunch. The food was delicious - we had meze and kebabs. There was lots left over which we took home for a later snack! The service was attentive and friendly - we can't wait to go back.

Excellent food and charming staff, a very pleasant experience and one of our party had gone to the other Mangan in Arcola street and left a bag with phone I. It. There are obviously good links and one of their staff had so kindly brought the bag to restaurant personally. Reassuring that there are good kind people.

An excellent restaurant with good quality service and cuisine. I go out of my way in order to dine here and always try to bring as many friends with me as possible to share in the enjoyment that is Mangal 2.

Food was amazing! I highly recommend the lamb stew. And for the price you can't beat it. Staff were very grumpy, not a single smile or any helpfulness but we found it funny. Also it feels like a proper restaurant t not just a take away with tables.

We went ahead of a visit to the Arcola Theatre and wanted a relaxed space to eat and chat. We got that, with great food, excellent service and a positive vibe - and the play was good.

Possibly the best mangal in London! Epic portions of meat piled high on the most deliciously buttery rice. Set menu 1 is an absolute must!!

Great Turkish restaurant on Kingsland Road. The food was really good and the prices were very reasonable. It's a BYOB restaurant too so you can bring your own drinks.

Simply the best Turkish restaurant in London. A bit overcrowded and noisy especially at weekends but the food is definitely worth a visit. Not to be missed.

Excellent food - really fresh and delicious. It was very noisy - as expected on Saturday night - and service a bit forgetful. But otherwise great.

Very good food, can get really busy and loud. Perhaps you should go before 7 or after 8:30 if you want to eat in relative peace and quiet. Lovely humus.

Good food. Sat next to the grill so was very smoky. Portions are huge and the bread is amazing. Would come back again for sure.

Very slow service, could be excusable as it was a party of 14, but it took 2 1/2 hours to get one course served. Would avoid for large parties.

Our food was nice when it eventually came, two hours.later, when asking the staff where the food was, they were very rude. They said it was busy and it wasn't their fault. We didn't eat until 10 30.
