About Bosphorus Turkish Restaurant
Lovely food with excellent service, shame the venue is not much busier as lack of customers does nothing for the atmosphere.
The food was very good and plentiful. We went for the set meal @ £25 per person. By the time we got to the end of the main course we didn't have enough room left to try the sweet. If you go for this option make sure you are hungry.
Authentic Turkish restaurant in city centre
With a warm, colourful and traditional Turkish decor, diners are made to feel very welcome at Bosphorus Turkish Restaurant on Glasgow’s Dundas Street. Just in case the name and decor have not made their point, then the live belly dancing, Thursday to Sunday, should leave diners in no doubt that they are in a Turkish restaurant. In fact, the owner opened what may well have been Scotland’s first Turkish restaurant in 1981.
Authentic Turkish mezze and grills
Meals at Bosphorus Turkish Restaurant start with a great range of traditional hot and cold mezze. Salads, humus and dips flavoured with exotic spices and herbs are popular choices for the cold mezze while the deep-fried cheese, lamb meatballs and melting aubergine starters stand out among the hot mezze.
The main courses are a greatest hits list of regional Turkish specialities in which use of the charcoal grill features prominently. From Adana kebabs to chicken hotpots or guvec dishes, there is a mouth-watering variety of lamb and chicken dishes served minced, cubed and on or off the bone.
The kitchen recommends the sultan’s sofrasi – a set menu of hot and cold mezze followed by assorted cuts of char grilled lamb and chicken.
