Centrally located in Romford, close to the station and the line running down to London, Mangal Meze is a popular Turkish restaurant for locals and hungry people doing the long commute. This South Street restaurant’s menu is packed with Anatolian classics, many made according to secret recipes. The chef makes a daily stew and there’s a host of other house specials that are a must for fans of Turkish and Middle Eastern cuisine.
Kleftiko, meat or vegetable moussaka, stuffed peppers, chicken or lamb beyti as is or wrapped in flatbread and given a quick grill on the charcoal, the chargrilled eggplant puree mixed with yoghurt and served with lamb stew known as ali nazik, the herby halep kebab and the classic chicken or lamb Iskender – all of these are Turkish culinary specialties of the house that come highly recommended when you choose to dine at Mangal Meze in Greater London’s Romford, easily found up South Street from the main station.
Other great ways to get stuck into Mangal Meze’s comprehensive list of Turkish delights are the family specials, great value packs for 2 or 3 to 6 to 7 people. With the most lavish of these including a cold mixed meze platter (this restaurant has made a name for itself in Romford for its fantastic shareable platters), lamb and chicken doner, chicken wings, lamb ribs, Adana kofte, chicken shish, lamb liver, rice and salad. A standout among the many Turkish restaurants that pepper the unbroken urban conglomeration that is Greater London, Mangal Meze deserves a booking.
This was a family mid-week night out with delicious food and a bustling environment. The staff were fun and helpful. We will visit again soon.

Great little restaurant. Gives you the opportunity to eat in, take away and order online but collection only. Food is amazing, staff are great. To avoid disappointment book a table, other wise they will turn you away.

Mangal Mezze in Romford is amazing. The staff are really friendly. Such generosity and kindness. The food is delicious. We have been going since they opened a few years back. Make sure to book your table in advance as it is a very popular restaurant. From regular kebabs to casserols and beytis. Great variety of delicious fish too and a kleftico to die for. Plus great desserts and complimentary turkish tea. This is the only place we go to eat out.
When we arrived I explained we had a reservation. I showed them my reservation number and explained that I had booked online but they didn't seem to have us down. That said it was resolved and we was seated within 10 mins. Staff were friendly/attentive and professional, food was amazing, couldn't fault the rest of evening and would definitely recommend.
Superb service, very friendly staff who were attentive and helpful. We chose the family meal deal 3 and the mountain of food served was delicious and they had no problem boxing up the leftovers. Highly recommended.
