The reputation of the humble kebab in the United Kingdom could be better, if we’re being honest, but at Turkish Mangal on the High Street in Hornchurch, they’re doing a good job of rehabilitating the humble meat on a stick. Their take on the Turkish classic goes far further than the average elephant’s leg, bringing the herbs and spices of Ottoman-era dishes to bear on top-notch ingredients. The meats are accompanied by a huge range of mezzes, stews, baked dishes and more, all in the grand Turkish tradition, so head on over to the centre of Hornchurch and try out Turkish Mangal.
Food was fantastic and so was the service and a great price too. Would definitely recommend it to everybody we know. My wife and I are looking forward to going back in the new year. Liz & Rino Essex
This is a really nice, traditional small restaurant, with attentive staff, great food which is reasonably priced!! 😀😀😀😀😀 recommend for a lovely Turkish meal in Hornchurch.
The food of Turkey is not the extravagance that is once was: plenty of Brits have spent a summer in Bodrum or Marmara, and more and more are choosing Istanbul – or Berlin, at a push – as a city break choice. As increasing numbers become aware of the delights on offer in Turkish restaurants, there is a demand for the cuisine back home, a slack that is being picked up in Hornchurch by Turkish Mangal on the High Street, where they offer all the best that the Bosphorus has to offer in the heart of Essex.
The classic Turkish culinary experience requires a mezze to start, and at Turkish Mangal, they do it as well as anywhere in Hornchurch. That means hot stuff – halloumi, calamari, felafel, fried lamb liver and sucuk sausage – and cold plates too, in the form of feta cheese, stuffed vine leaves, hummus and a huge selection of dips. The grill is central too, and whether you like your kebabs with lamb or chicken, minced or in cubes, or indeed, whether you eskew the skewer completely in favour of a vegetarian Turkish aubergine with tomato sauce or a moussaka – or a fish dish, such as whole sea bass or prawns – you are sure of a treat. Book a table at Turkish Mangal on the High Street in Hornchurch for a Turkish meal to remember in Essex.
