About

This smart glass-fronted café, restaurant bar on Belvedere Road is neighbours with the Royal Festival Hall, Yo Sushi! and Chez Gerard in that cultural hot-spot, the Southbank. The 82-dishes (excluding set, special and children meals) offer a comprehensive taste of Turkey's national (healthy) diet. There's kisir, a cold starter of nuts, bulgar wheat, herbs and spring onions. Hearty mains include kuzu guvec, a lamb casserole, and a delicious mariage of runner beans and onions served with a rich tomato sauce and rice called yesil fasulye. There are fish, pasta, rice, and special veggie dishes too. Desserts make an intriguing change from treacle pudding and cheesecake. How about kaymakh kestane - sweet chestnuts sprinkled with chestnuts and served with home-made cream?

There was a big delay to have the first starters, but then, everything run smooth. Food was tasty and quantities were fine. Unfortunately, desserts were not hand made and the tasty in this case not as expected... we were in Silvestre night (new year eve) and the prices were really really high. For the quantity and quality of the meal, too much (45 pounds per person).

Poor Turkish food for tourists who may not return. Service nice but food over priced hugely and a poor experience never to be repeated!

Very good value for money and tasty food. Not the best Turkish food I’ve ever eaten but still very good. Restaurant is quite open and bright. Servers were friendly but either constantly checking in after every mouthful or nowhere to be seen!

It's a very nice restaurant in terms of ambience and the best meal you can get in a very touristic area.
The portions are big, the meat very clean and well cooked and there are many vegetarian options such as the vegetarian moussaka. I had pan fried sea bass fillet which was excellent.
We will surely go back to Troia as Southbank is our favourite place for Sunday strolls and for theatre/concerts but we had never had before such a lovely family meal in the area.

A great eatery. We all enjoyed prompt service and an unhurried meal that was cooked to perfection. A little bit difficult to find as the restaurant is in a building directly behind County Hall. Don’t hesitate to book. It’s good!

It was a pleasant surprise. Given the location I would have expected a turist-y trap where it was actually a good restaurant.
It is not too fancy but food was good, in great portions and reasonably priced.
The location is airy and brand new.
We found the service funny although the "direct approach" of the lady might not go down well with all the clients.
I would happily eat again at Troia if I was in the area

i booked this on open table and had a confirmed booking only to find out that on the troia website it was closed for refurbishment! I put in a query to open table and had no answer. we love this restaurant but could have caused us a major problem

The food was really tasty but quite expensive. The restaurant is based really close to Southbank/Eye so a good place to head for a lunch or pre theatre food.

A great venue for our NY Eve pre-fireworks. Authentic Turkish food and fantastic location close to the London Eye. Vibrant and fun atmosphere and not like most restaurants who triple their prices for NY Eve!

Excellent mezza starters and good main courses. Service was very good and friendly considering we were there on New Year's Eve and they were obviously very busy. If you like Mediterranean cuisine this place is worth a visit for casual eating. No cocktails available.

I had booked the pre-fix Christmas Dinner and the website should 3 different options. When we arrived, regular menus were on the table, no mention of Christmas dinner. Prices are a little higher than shown on open table.

Food was excellent. Baked Brie was excellent, as was the Baba Ganush (Patlikan). Best Fish and Chips ever. Good Mixed Grill and Chicken dishes. Good attentive service.

Always worth a visit. Best value is the meze, but as I was on my own, I went for the mixed grill. It was quite late and they were still as helpful as ever, despote probably wanting to go home! Nice Turkish wine, not too noisy and generally great food

The food is good but really not good value for money. We ordered 2 mixed grill plates that are around £19 and there is really not much to eat and were still hungry, so much so that we had to ask for another one (when we said we were disappointed with the portions, they gave the extra plate for free). Atmosphere and service OK.

Nice venue for a sensibly priced dinner catching up with a friend (who is vegetarian, but eats fish- menu had plenty of options). Good value, especially considering location but what makes it stand out is the fantastic personal service. There was a slight mix up with our booking but the apology & attention we got at the restaurant far outweighed the minor inconvenience so well done on really getting that customers can go elsewhere but personal service costs nothing & can make an evening. Thank you.

A lively slightly noisy atmosphere. Reminded me of a school dining hall. However, the food was excellent and the staff worked very hard to ensure we were well looked after during a busy Saturday evening.

Fantastic meal overall. On arrival we were made to feel welcome. Outdoor heater was put on to allow us to sit outside and eat, which was great for my daughter. Good advice was offered on menu choices to stop us overspending which we really appreciated. My partner and I had the meat meze and then shared a kebab. Perfect and all dishes were lovely. All in all a great evening. Only 4 stars as cleanliness of toilets does let it down. Would definitely visit again.
