Welcome to Yeni Restaurant London.

Our first restaurant, Yeni Lokanta, is located in Istanbul and, is characterised by its focus on traditional Anatolian dishes, bright flavours and superb seasonal produce.

Acclaimed chef Civan Er has now decided to bring his modern twist to these Anatolian dishes to London with Yeni Restaurant.

We look forward to showing you all about traditional Anatolian dishes with a modern twist using local seasonal produce.

Wonderful setting, in a great location, with fab light, tasty, creative sharing food. I opted for a number of small dishes so I can taste wider range. I had beetroot, then scallop, ending with grilled octopus. All terrific. Amuse bouche, the winner, but all of it excellent. Service by George and Joy terrific, and welcome by manager Jo, much appreciated. Terrific cocktails too. I had passion fruit with chilli, absolutely marvellous.

I will not be surprised if this restaurant gets a few Michelin stars in the near future. We had an amazing experience. Food is fantastic, service is top quality.

This is a must try restaurant. Food was outstanding, imaginative and delicious. It was the best we had recently. They have an unusual wine list; quite experimental. The service was very attentive and the ambiance was cool and relaxing. We'll visit Yeni again soon.

Really liked the ambiance and the food👍 It is not a classical Turkish cuisine rather like a gourmet menu.. Give it a try without doubt...

The food was absolutely outstanding - modern Turkish with very fresh local ingredients. Particularly recommend aubergine manti, lamb sausage and roasted beef ribs but everything was totally delicious if on the pricey side. The staff were friendly and attentive - our waiter was perhaps a bit too attentive and hovered a bit and regularly interrupted. The manager was absolutely lovely and was patient when we lingered over our wine - very nice Provencal rose - a bit surprised though there weren't more Turkish wines on the menu. Nice, relaxed atmosphere and easy to chat without too much background noise. I would definitely go back.

Delicious food, competently prepared. 4 main courses in total, 1 beef dish, one lamb, one octopus and a fish dish (hake, I think). No options for vegetarians or vegans among the main courses, but one could easily order 2 from the starters/small dishes. Interesting wines, and charming service.

Tasty and unusual dishes (fried feta with hazelnuts was one of the best, as were the beef ribs). Nice and bright restaurant and friendly staff. Fish with raki was a strange flavour but still a decent dish - not sure I'd have it again though. Overall a good restaurant.

I have to say it was a disappointment after Istanbul location’s dishes. First of all the signature dish mantı was not served.. Then from 3 main courses the one i choosed was not available the waiter told me..The restaurant was almost empty and did not understand why not available for a 7 pm reservation. Then they have served the “not avaliable” dish to next table.. Portions are too small. No Turkish wine was available.

This was our best dining experience in Soho. The food is out of this world. All the dishes were excellent, wonderfully presented and beautifully served. My wife was pampered by the vegetarian options with amazing flavors. Can a beetroot be so tasty? Wine list was exquisite. We had a perfect Pinot Noir although it was from Germany ☺. Service was impeccable and friendly. They host you in a very stylish but relaxing atmosphere.

Really enjoyed our dinner at Yeni's restaurant on Saturday night. The food was delicious, with one or two surprise extra's. The menu was not extensive but the food tasted wonderful & the presentation was excellent. The choice of music was perhaps not in keeping with a sophisticated Turkish restaurant, and it would have been nice to have had an area where we could have enjoyed a pre-diner drink as we arrived a bit early for our reservation (pre-theatre) but couldn't get in! Hope to return and have more time to linger.

Absolutely delicious! Inventive and original food. We had celeriac with quince, cig tartar, octopus with sour cherry bulghur, beef ribs and scallops with walnut and carrot paste; all were amazing. Service is very attentive with a friendly team. Décor is cool and cosy. Spacious and comfortable dining area. We’ll be coming back soon.

It might have been the cold and wet Tuesday evening - but it was fairly quiet and could have done with more atmosphere. The service was friendly and professional. The food in my mind cam e in two halves. The amuse-bouche and starters were without exception INCREDIBLY tasty. Interesting and contrasting flavour balances and worth going back for. The two main dishes we ordered were very well cooked, the meat was very succulent but they lacked the depth of flavour and interest of the starters.
Overall we found it expensive. I would go back for small bites and glass of wine rather than a full three course dinner.

Although it was their first night, everything came out the kitchen were cooked/prepared to perfection. Attention to detail was second to none. The wine list is nicely complementing the menu. The ambiance, the atmosphere, the quality of the service are just like the food being served: creative and excellent. I am already looking forward to going back. London food scene was incomplete without "Yeni". Any foodie should try!
