    Turkish restaurant

    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.

    Bosphorus Turkish Restuarnat

    We booked this restaurant as our usual Turkish haunt has closed down. We were the only two people in the place as it has only just opened. This didn't stop us from enjoying a lovely Turkish meal though. The food was good and portions were great. Ahmet, the owner, is a lovely guy who I'm sure will build a good reputation here in Glasgow, We would definitely go again.

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.
