Relaxed Turkish dining in Chorlton
The recently refurbished Saray Cafe, Bar and Restaurant aims to serve up an authentic Turkish dining experience in both its food and atmosphere. Dishes are freshly prepared to order and include specially selected, quality ingredients. The restaurant is bright and airy, with splashes of colour from rainbow lamps on the walls. Saray’s outdoor seating means that you can enjoy dining al fresco if the weather is fine. This would be a friendly, cheerful spot for a relaxed meal with family or friends.
Healthily prepared, home-style Turkish dishes
Turkish food is a fascinating fusion of Balkan, Central Asian and Middle Eastern cuisines. At Saray, the focus is on building a bridge between modern cooking and traditional Turkish recipes to create a tasty, home-style menu. Dishes are prepared healthily using premium olive oil and include mixed grills, mezes, casseroles and fresh seafood.
Menus can change but expect starters such as mini lamb balls, spicy Turkish sausage and feta cheese triangles. Mains will most likely include the house special of Saray Lamb Kofte; salmon steak in cream and white wine sauce, and vegetable musakka. All mains are served with rice and salad. The dessert list includes indulgent classics such as baklava, chocolate fudge cake and sticky toffee pudding.
The restaurant’s signature wine selection features choices from around the world, alongside beers, spirits and liqueurs. Traditional coffee pots add an authentic vibe and the complimentary Turkish delight at the end of your meal is a bonus treat.
