Kebab shop by Turkish brothers ranked among best restaurants in LondonAug 22, 3:43 pm
London, August 22 (ANI): A south London kebab shop is rubbing shoulders with top Michelin star chefs as one of the capital's top ten restaurants.Although Meze Mengal was only opened 12 years ago by Turkish brothers Sahin and Ahmet Gok, it ranks higher than The Ritz, Barrafina, Whits and Marcus Wareing at the Berkeley on TripAdvisor.It is currently ranked as seventh, with only Michelin starred restaurants scoring higher than its 95 percent approval rating - Gordon Ramsay's Petrus and Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, Brett Graham's The Ledbury, Michael Roux's La Gavroche, Da Palo's in Charlotte Street and Mayfair's Goodman steakhouse.According to Sahin, the news that his restaurant ranking 7th out of more than 10,000 reviewed is "really good"."The news is really good. It's nice when you do something for people and they appreciate it," the Daily Mail quoted him as saying."We are very proud and it's a really nice feeling. We work hard and love our jobs. To see this reaction from the customers is a brilliant thing," he said.While lamb, fish and chicken are cooked on skewers over a charcoal grill in the main restaurant, elaborate pide dishes are baked in a brick oven at the back."When we opened there was nowhere like us in the area. Turkish food had a very bad reputation - doner kebabs dripping with oil - and we wanted to change that and show people what Turkish cooking is like," Sahin said."We had tablecloths, nice silverware and wine glasses on the tables. Everything to get away from that takeaway image."Our prices are very reasonable and the food is always very fresh and we make everything ourselves - including our bread," he said.The top 10 London restaurants listed on Tripadvisor are:PetrusThe Ledbury Restaurant Gordon RamsayLe GavrocheDe Palo'sGoodmanMeze MangalWhitsApsleysThe Kitchen@Tower (ANI)
