Amazing food, best Turkish restaurant we have ever been to and it is our favourite cuisine so that is definitely a statement!

The restaurant itself was lovely, the service was amazing and the food was just unreal 10/10.

Really nice restaurant, friendly staff, lovely food. Only negative was how compact it was with little room between tables.

Maybe suggest a kids portion size. £14:95 for Chicken Shish is ok but pricey for a kids meal.

Fabulous food and friendly service.
We had the meeting dish for two as a starter for 4. It was excellent.
Two of us had the lamb kebab which was beautifully cooked and very filling.
Only one of us had room for dessert. They had the baklava which was delicious.

Food was lovely, though it would have been even better with fresh, warm flat bread rather than what appeared to be bought in and cold!
Service was friendly and brisk! We felt a bit rushed!
We were seated near the door and an icy blast hit us every time someone came in.

Really nice quality food, the cuts of meat were really good.. we opted for the mixed grill for two which was fab, the hummus & bread starter delicious.
Our two friends had Marinated grill chicken salad and they also said it was great..

This is the second time we have visited Turkish Kitchen. On both occasions we have been impressed with the speed and quality of food. The servers are really polite and attentive. I’m no expert in Turkish cuisine, and should be a little more experimental with my choice (maybe, the next time), but when you get a good dish, you tend to keep ordering it! The chicken and lamb Shish are fantastic, and pretty healthy too.

I can’t fault anything here. Well done to the owners and management.

We found there was a draft don't know if it was coming from front door or airconditioning. We liked the table we were sitting at the corner beside the bar, we had two older ladies with us they felt safe and comfortable. The staff were really good food was delicious. Diffinately go back.

Saturday afternoon booking so not too busy, a couple of family groups and couples. Great service from arrival and offered a choice of tables. Very friendly staff. Menu with a wide variety of small plates and main meals to choose from. Veggie options too. Nice atmosphere and stylish decor. 2 meals, drinks and coffees for £45. will be back👍

Lovely food and very well decorated restaurant.

Service was a little slow but this was due to a few Christmas parties, had to remind staff 3 times about drinks that were ordered and not given, turns out drinks had never been ordered by the waiters in the first place due to the how busy all the staff were I think - would definitely go back when less busy. Thank you

Made the booking for 7.30 pm and was able to go to the table early. Served very quickly and the food was absolutely delicious. I had calamari and a greek salad and next time will be trying different foods and will be taking my parents up when they come and visit me at University.

I would definitely recommend this place and I am sure I will be back.

Food was excellent and generous portions filled our plates.
Would have preferred a little more time between courses but that’s just a personal choice. If I was ever to return to Durham I would definitely revisit the Turkish Kitchen
