It was amazing food, really really good. The service was very friendly but a bit slow, it might be an issue with the kitchen rather than service.

It is slightly expensive but given the food is great, perhaps it is acceptable. Also, the menu (carde blanche) they offer is actually more expensive than ordering the dishes individually. I am not sure if this was a mistake but it is weird that you pay per person and then receive one portion of dessert for two to share

We had lunch there. If you book, ask for a window table- more privacy.
Sol it was quiet, at the central table. Food absolutely delicious and good value lunch menu at £16.

Loved the place, we really enjoyed the atmosphere. The staff was kind and food was excellent with little waiting time between the dishes. On the upset side of things, we could have done without the unnecessary interruptions from the manager, it did became a bit annoying at one point. We also noticed that the staff weren’t being treated kindly by management at the duration of our stay.

Very, very good food, we shared all the small plates, plus a main course, extra bread, and an extra portion of the herb and cheeses fritters, all the tastes were sublime, great combinations, the cocktails were also very good, but took an age to arrive at the table. The downside of all these little tasty items is that the bill gets to a very big number quickly.
Waiters were great, manager was attentive, all staff very friendly - they even went the distance with a candle in our son’s dessert.

Was really looking forward to a nice Turkish pre-theatre dinner with friends. Ambiance of the restaurant is nice and the cocktails/lemonade really nice. However, overall we were quite disappointed. Having seen that they offer a pre-theatre menu and that we could only have the table for 2h (as told), we wanted to try it. It turned out that it wasn't offered to us on the first instance and had to ask for it. The choice looked good and price reasonable (£16 for 3 courses). Having received the dishes, it turned out that they were extremely small and nothing spectacular (e.g. home lamb sausage dish was a 2inch half slice of a dry overcooked sausage, some bean mash and a thin slice of cucumber for decoration!). No bread was served at all (first for a Turkish restaurant), we ordered 2 portions of the bread basket at £4 each, which had 1 hollow slice cut in 2 of a sourdough bread and 2 small buns! The food ingredients were cheap and overall for over £100 bill we were left disappointed and somewhat hungry. Would not go back.

This was one of the best dining experiences we’ve ever had. The food is out of this world. We have started with small sharing plates and kept on ordering. All were amazing whereas the yogurt dumplings were the best. We had beef ribs and lamb shank as main course. Both were impeccably seasoned, cooked to perfection and incredibly delicious. To finish the meal, we had crisp pastry and pudding fritters with house made ice cream which were rich and delicious. The atmosphere of the restaurant is great and the decor is cool right from the doorway. Staff were attentive and friendly.

We like Yeni and often visit for lunch. On this occasion however, with a new waiter looking after us, confusion and mistakes happened.

I found myself paying £41.50 (1/4 share of £166.00 bill) for a roll, a couple of glasses of water, one glass of very nice white wine, a smaller portioned snow pea salad starter, no main - veggie dumplings (think it was passed to another guest on our table) - and a panna cotta followed by a cup of mint tea.

I have never before in the dozen or so times we have visited had such frustration here.

I loved the actual restaurant - really nice atmosphere and service, but the food was indifferent and really expensive. Beetroot sorbet with fritters anyone? And very expensive - the bill for two, and we only had two starters each and one dessert, was £85, which I thought extortionate. When was the last time you went to a Turkish restaurant and had to pay for bread? Normally they give you so much you leave it. So, nice try but I won't be back.

We had an absolutely fantastic experience at Yeni. It was our first time at the restaurant. Every single dish was delicious. Staff provided excellent service, suggestions, and attention. They knew we were going to a theater afterwards and made sure that our meal was done in a timely fashion. We were visiting London and found this restaurant on OpenTable.
Our friends, who actually live in London, had never been to Yeni and were delighted to find such a fabulous restaurant. Looking forward to dining there again in the future. Our compliments to the chef and staff. Thank you for such a great evening.

I found hair in my dish.
And the server brought another, more expensive bottle of vine ( twice the price) then the one I had chosen. ( he apologized and did nt charge the extra amount). Very loud restaurant. The names of the dishes are misleading : they are personnal creative versions of the chef , using names of traditional Turkish and Middle eastern dishes. Inwas disappointed, but the worse eqs the hair I found in my plate ( they applogized, but, still.. Lost my appetite..
