Come and join us for authentic Turkish cuisine cooked fresh from our open kitchen, watch our chef at work creating mouthwatering dishes from our traditional charcoal grill.

Our aim is to make you feel relaxed in the cosy atmosphere we’re proud to have created.

We look forward to welcoming you to BAY Turkish Restaurant. Turks love eating and relishing food. As a result, feast like meals are not out of the ordinary in a Turkish home. If you are present in a Turkish home for breakfast, lunch or dinner, the variety and the effort put into preparing the table will be very evident. In Turkey, having people over for dinner or a tea party is a very common and frequent tradition which involves socialising. It is part of the society, the culture and tradition.

Very enjoyable, staff were friendly and attentive. The kitchen is open so you can see food being freshly cooked which was very tasty with a good variety of dishes. Have visited a few times for different occasions. Well worth it.

Absolutely delicious food! Please try the starters as the sauces are excellent. For mains we had a mix of the grilled meats and these were all delicious and cooked to perfection.

The restaurant was busy with a nice ambience that some may find a little loud but was perfect for us with 2 kids. The meal was a reasonable price too and service was excellent.

It was a quiet evening at the restaurant, probably as a result of the Corona virus. We had a perfect table at the side of the restaurant and really enjoyed our meal and the service. We shared a starter of dolmades, tasty and excellent in substance. After that I had the moussaka with lamb, lots of vegetables, good cheesy béchamel sauce and we ended with the excellent cheesecake. Service was the way I prefer, attending when needed, never a long wait and friendly. We had a very pleasant evening and will surely come back!

Lovely food, great service and a really good range of choices. We chose the Turkish wine, which was really excellent and not ridiculously priced. The noise level was very high (the restaurant was full) and it might be good for them to try and manage that a little - though the ambience was fun and I'm not criticising. I'd recommend to anyone (apart from perhaps my elderly deaf relatives!).

Another great visit, food was as usual excellent, as was the service despite the fact that what must have been a party of at least 30 ladies who were intent on enjoying themselves. Not a complaint just an observation as it added to the atmosphere. Will of course be returning for another visit in the not to distant future.

Booked for an early dinner with three generations of the family. Food as always was fabulously tasty and hot, service is very friendly and casual. The starters look a little small but the mains are large so we were thankful we had not over indulged on the starters! Very good children's meals that suit their tastes but are freshly cooked small versions of the adults mains. Great job as always.

After being met by the manager/owner on arrival he was very friendly and greeted me on first name terms which was very refreshing, there was 8 of us and was celebrating my sons 30th birthday and when he new this he said if I had let him know he would have done a little something for him, but the service/food etc was fabulous and I will be visiting again very soon.

The staff are very friendly. The food was outstanding. My partner and I both had lamb which was cooked to perfection. Lovely atmosphere and you weren't hassled by the staff they just came once to check how everything was and then left us to enjoy the food and drinks. Would highly recommend

The food was absolutely lovely could not fault at all . Unfortunantly the service was terrible I asked 3 times for a jug of water with two different staff it did eventually come on the 3rd time of asking. We ordered a gin and tonic that took half an hour to come because the waitress had forgotten.We were going to have a desert but we waited so long for a desert menu we decided to leave it and just get the bill.
It wasn’t really busy either so wouldn’t like to see the service in a busy setting.such a shame because the food was amazing and was served promptly just the overall service with drinks that lets the place down.

The staff were welcoming and helpful. Aubergine starter very tasty, mains well cooked and just the right amount of food. Baklvaha sweet was just how I like it. Finished off with Turkish coffee, a lovely dining experience.

We were shown to our table, and were 10 minutes early. The noise level was horrendous and we could not carry out a normal conversation without shouting. Other diners were coming in and out and leaving the door open - the table behind us had to keep getting up to close it. After 15 minutes of being ignored we left and went to the Balti Kitchen for a meal. No-one had even asked us what we wanted to drink!

Lamb Moussaka good, lamb in the Shish could have been more tender. Alcoholic drinks not recommended. Turkish beer unpalatable and left undrunk. Red wine that my wife ordered was of very poor quality. The restaurant overall looks quite downmarket, with very cheap brown veneer tables. Not a disastrous dining experience but poor value overall.
