Welcome to Yosma! A modern Turkish restaurant inspired by the streets of Istanbul

When it comes to sourcing our ingredients, we have chosen each producer very carefully. Fresh whole fish comes in from day boats off Cornwall and whole lambs from local suppliers are butchered in-house.

Executive Chef Hus Vedat – ‘My food philosophy is simple: choose good ingredients from producers that are passionate. Treat those ingredients with respect. Lick them with fire and let them shine. For Yosma, I will be exploring influences and flavours from my heritage. I want to showcase the depth, character, and history of Anatolian food and drink (while having fun) and sharing the fascinating stories behind one the world’s most prominent cuisines.’

Great Turkish fare in a big, fun space, albeit a little loud at times. The staff was great, being friendly, helpful and attentive but not hovering. But most importantly the food was delicious. Perhaps not the most inventive, but the mains we had were scrumptious, especially the slow-cooked pulled lamb. The starters were great across the board, although I thought the chicken wings could have been a bit crispier. Still, the pomegranate glaze and seeds made up for that. For dessert, the warm apple kadayif was to die for!

We received a great service, authentic Turkish menu was explained fully, food arrived quickly, served at optimal temperature and tasted amazing. Great spot to eat at if you like Turkish food or are wanting to try Turkish cuisine. Just a shame we didn't have space for dessert! Special shout out to our waitress, whose name I sadly did not get - perfectly friendly, while giving us space to enjoy our food. And ran after us when I managed to leave my backpack behind! 5/5 overall.

We had a nice dinner there. The food was super tasty and the staff were very nice. Only thing was that my Pide arrived after all my group finished eating. And I do think it was a mixup in the order. But overall a great experience.

the sign in the window regarding drinks being half price before 8pm relates to the bar not the restaurant but due to our confusion the restaurant rectified the bill in keeping with the discount despite our being seated in the restaurant. the dishes we ordered came well cooked and presented with good flavours. the open style kitchen means you leave smelling of the kitchen. had to send everything off to the dry cleaner.

We had lunch at Yosma on a quiet Saturday around 3pm. The service was friendly and attentive and the food quality was very good. It tasted authentic and fresh.
The menu is on the smaller side but has good variety.
The portions are on the smaller side and the price is quite high. We paid £5.5 each for a very small glass of Apple, Carrot and Ginger juice that was quite watery.
The Restaurent is spacious and the seating is comfortable.
I imagine it would be good for larger groups.
All in all a nice lunch-time venue.

The restaurant is very spacious with an open kitchen, large bar area and some seating outside. Casual and not pretentious at all and very high professionalism.
Before I get to the food, a couple of notes about the people working there. Special shout out to Ricardo, a young mixologist from Brazil who is developing his own unique cocktails and to our server Jade. She is a native Londoner and one of the friendliest and nicest of people you could ever expect to meet. She's working and saving up to go on to school to become a Social Worker and you will be very lucky to have her as your server.
Now for the food! We started with a Melon and Feta. The sweetness of the melon and slight saltiness of the feta made for a great combination. Think of a prosciutto and melon dish, but for vegetarians. We complimented that with Fava bean puree with dill and EVOO. It's very true to the fava bean flavor in that not a lot of salt or acid (think lemon juice) is added to it. A very good palate cleanser.
Next we moved to Manti (Turkish dumplings, stuffed with lamb neck, yogurt sauce, chilli oil, mint) and an order of Pastirma (Charred Oyster Mushrooms with Chillli-cured egg, black truffle). The Manti is very well balanced with the yogurt, oil and mint. As for the Pastirma, the char they add give it an even more earthy flavor add the silkiness of the egg and truffle you could find yourself eating this dish all night. As our entree's we had Ali Nazik (Lamb Rump, Smoked aubergine, lime yogurt, burnt tomato) and Tandir Iskender (Pulled lamb shoulder, garlic yogurt, chili butter on flat bread). The lamb in the Ali Nazik was cooked perfectly and with the earthy smokey flavor of the aubergine combined with the slight acidic lime and tomato it tasted wonderful. The Iskender had a slightly more delicate flavor and we left no plate unclean.
Yosma is now one of our MUST eat places in London and we will make this one of our first stops next time. Thanks to everyone there for an amazing dinner.

Took a group of girlfriends to Yosma and from the moment we walked in we had outstanding service. Smiles, friendly chat, prompt delivery of drinks and food. Jade our waitress was particularly amazing - she answered all of our questions on the cuisine, made us feel super welcome and was just a super-warm person - all of my friends commented how great everyone serving us was.
The food was delicious and great to have the small plates style so that we could all share and try lots of different things. All of us would return to this place with it's fantastic team, lovely and different food and handy location (only 5 mins walk from Baker St station).

The staff were really nice and attentive. I mentioned that the booking was for my friends birthday and they kindly brought out a slice of cheesecake with a candle and birthday message written in chocolate sauce around the plate which was a lovely surprise for her!
The cheesecake was ah-mazing by the way!!!
The venue is lovely also .. would recommend!

we had the lunch special menu. cuz we thought it would be faster.
it wasnt.
weather was nice so we sat outside on the tables on the sidewalk. baker street is busy and good to sit outside.
the chicken main that two of us got was undercooked and had a few pink centers and one red center.
this is unacceptable . also they took a long time to do the lunch service (especially since we told them that we were in a hurry) but food came real slow.
they comped one chicken as it was really bad but not the other even though that diner couldnt eat it fully either.
they offered to cook it more but we were in a hurry so we ate around it .

Great food, only thing I would say is portions are small for what you pay, most dishes are £7-12 and some did not seem very good value for money. Taste was excellent just a tad overpriced.
Staff were excellent and very attentive so would recommend the restaurant we had ten mezes between four but with some of the portion sizes this is perfect and less and may need more.

I went to Yosma just on my own for breakfast, traveling from south east London and it was definitely worth it. Service was excellent and I have to say lovely waitress Jade's smiley face and kindness made me feel not on my own. Next time, I'll take my family with me.

Service amazing. But food let it down. This is the third time I’ve come as I always like to restaurants a few chances. But the food really is disappointing. Bland and lacking in much flavour. The calamari was greasy and flavourless, the same went with the humous. The manti were so tiny you could taste hardly any mince meat, just loads of under seasoned yoghurt. And the cocktails were just terrible... BUT the service was amazing!
