Beyti

BeytiWarm, except if your table is by the door and smokers keep coming in and out, unpretentious, using fresh ingredients and a charcoal grillĀ  – what else could you wish for in a restaurant? Ah, and you can bring your own wine too!
Beyti is one of the best Turkish restaurants in London. I never come out disappointed. The choices are not as many as in other Turkish restaurants I’ve been to, but it hasĀ  enough choice of meat, fish and vegetarian to make it interesting – assuming you don’t go there every day. Off the top of my head, go for the fried whitebait to start, perhaps with a spinach & yoghurt dip alongside if you’ve tired of the traditional hummus. For main, I always go for either grilled sea bream or sea bass. If you’re a fishy sort of person, there are also other fish in the menu – trout, salmon etc. Don’t be afraid to ask the waiter which fish they recommend. If you go ahead without asking and order one that isn’t fresh, you can easily tell by their face as well. They have plenty of meat and vegetarian kebabs too, as any Turkish place.
Not sure about desserts as I’m usually too stuffed by that stage, but I think they have rather regular ice creams and nothing particularly memorable.
The staff is always friendly and nice, and the crowd is as eclectic as one would expect in London. To finish, the bill is surprisingly soft on the pocket, perhaps because this part of town is not particularly trendy – try the Turkish restaurants in Kingsland Rd / Dalston just a few minutes walk away, and you’ll see what I mean!
This is an honest place for food lovers.
