The mangal is a traditional way of barbecuing food commonly used in Turkey and the Middle East and here it is used to the very best effect. With a party atmosphere and friendly, welcoming service, Best Mangal brings relaxed dining to the West – or more appropriately to West Kensington. Comfortably and attractively appointed, Best Mangal is certainly not your typical kebab joint, in fact this restaurant is giving the kebab a whole new image. Pull up a stool around the central mangal where you can sip a drink whilst watching your wood being expertly prepared in front of your eyes. With a whole host of grilled meats to choose from plus delectable Middle Eastern starters and hot breads, rice and salad to accompany, Best Mangal offers something totally different, well priced and delicious.

As far as kebab's go then you don't get much better than this.
There are a few (all similar) kebab places that serve fantastic meat in the Fulham/Hammersmith/Parsons Green area. It would be easy to take kebabs for granted due to their high standard. I should check myself. For me jebabs were always something you only wanted to eat when you are drunk. Best Mangal (along with 696 Mangal and...more
A couple months ago, I was on the 28 bus to Fulham Broadway when I saw that the Steak Tapas place that was once there was gone. I was about to take a moment to consider the vagaries of fate, when I saw a banner over the windows proclaiming: Best Mangal!
I nearly squeed out loud. My husband and I have been trekking across the entire length of North End Road to West Ken for the past 3 years...more
