Mangal was established in 1991 and it is a fully licenced, air conditioned restaurant with a refigerated display of raw kebabs, a steaming, sizzling ocak grill, a hot table laden with simmering stews and braises.
Hot pide and sac breads accompany starters of lentil soup or garlicky cacik, and ezme is a winning dish of roasted aubergine mashed with olive oil , fresh tomato, green herbs and hot pepper. Mangal 2 has a capacity of 70 people.
