    Can't fault the food or service. End bill was on the expensive side but we did have several cocktails ! Worth paying a bit extra as a treat to ourselves as overall was a great experience. Definitely will be our 'go to' for special occasions.

    Staff and service are first class. Wine list is interesting and not overpriced. Food is classic Turkish, Lamb and Chicken barbecue in abundance. Excellent value and highly recommended.

    Great quality, traditional Turkish food. Free bread, olives and dips before dinner and delicious freshly cooked meals. I enjoy going at weekends, before an evening out-you are not rushed, and dinner and dessert will usually take around an hour and 15 minutes.

    Ideal as a pre-cinema or pre-theatre dining venue. Good choice of food and of drinks. Generally, all main courses are cooked to order. Portion sizes are not outrageously big or disappointingly small.

    We chose Mevan as a treat to ourselves. Meeting with my brother & SIL to try new cuisines. We were advised early on that there were staffing issues but, to be fair, we never felt like we were waiting excessively. We were having a leisurely, catch up lunch so it wasn't an issue for us. Our waiter gave us plenty of advice & guidance on the menu dishes for us new to Turkish cuisine. Our food was lovely with very generous portions, none of us managed desert. The Meze platter was a great introduction to the different flavours & textures of Turkish cuisine. My brother & I had moussaka, my SIL monkfish my wife prawn casserole all with salad & lovely. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit & have no problem recommending Mevan.

    Our experience of our Sunday lunchtime visit to the Mevan was a very positive one. Although at the time we dined there was quiet we were were greeted by very friendly staff who were attentative and provided excellent service. The food was very good and all my party enjoyed themselves at the restaurant. The menu was extensive and provided fair value for money.

    Last minute descion to eat out! Talked my partner into coming back to Mevan as the previous two times we had been there the service was awful! So we haven’t been for some time. Glad we did they seemed to have sorted there issues out with the staffing. Service was definitely better.

    Good service and food. If you have hearing difficulties recommend going when it is a bit quieter, or request a side room (although we didnt try this they seemed slightly quiter, although music still loud), general noise level plus music made it difficult to have a conversation

    The food was fantastic! We were sat on a lovely table tucked away. It was a perfect birthday celebration. Although, it would have been great to see which dishes could have been made vegan on the menu. We did wait for drinks and appetisers to follow with breads. But, it was all delicious and worth the wait. Thank you.

    We have been to Mevan on many occasions. We had booked a table for 5 for 5.45pm, we arrived on time but had to wait for a table, it seemed that one had not been specifically reserved for us despite the fact I had booked several days beforehand. Eventually we were seated at just approx. 5.50pm, this is important to know because at 7.35pm we were reminded that tables have a 2hour limit and would we be leaving soon? I think we were all taken aback and decided to not have dessert or coffee and asked for our bill, which they gave us but which ironically they took some time to collect payment. The food was ok although daughter’s vegetarian dish mainly consisted of mushy aubergines. Yes, they were busy, yes there were 2 new members of staff who didn’t have much idea of what they were doing but overall staff seemed quite thin on the ground. Also, I have a question- why did the music have to be so loud? It was fine at first but come 7pm they really ramped up the volume, we asked them to turn it down which they did, but I don’t think it’s hard to understand people want to be able to hear the waiting staff as well as dining companions. A bit of a disappointing evening overall!
