About City Merchant Turkiye
Great food and service.
First time at this restaurant and will definitely go back. The pre-theatre menu has a really good selection of foods. Staff were all welcoming and friendly. Service was great, the right amount of time to decide on your choices and food served after a very short time. We all had different meals and they were all very good. One of our group is vegetarian and she had a choice of options on the menu. A complementary limoncello was served at the end of our meal which was a lovely touch. Will definitely be back!
Warm Turkish Hospitality
A good night out with good food in warm and pleasant surroundings.
Turkish and Mediterranean cuisine in the Merchant City
Formerly a Glasgow institution serving up Scottish dishes, the City Merchant has transformed itself into City Merchant Turkiye. Turning its focus from Scotland to sunnier climes, it now specialises in offering the taste of Turkey and the Mediterranean to city centre diners.
Seafood, shish and sarma
At City Merchant Turkiye, you can enjoy Levantine favourites in a cosy and casual setting.
Starters include fried calamari rings in batter; chicken wings cooked on a charcoal grill, and pan-fried king prawns with halep sauce. Veggies can sample vine leaves stuffed with mixed rice and vegetables.
Main courses feature charcoal grilled salmon fillet; grilled lamb shish with fries, and vegetarian moussaka.
If you have room for dessert, then expect Turkish classics such as baklava and sultac rice pudding jostling for your attention alongside treats like chocolate fudge cake.
