Vanessa: This unassuming Enmore eatery is a must for lovers of Turkish cuisine. What appears to be a traditional kebab shop from the outside is home to colourful and mouth-watering dips, tender Adana and many other traditional Turkish delicacies. It takes only to enter to realise that this is more than the standard kebab shop as you make your way to the bustling covered courtyard, which is modestly decorated with cultural ornaments.
Once seated, the friendly waiter hands over the menu which is packed with all the traditional favourites. A huge range of appealing appetizers including rice filled vine leaves, generously sized cabbage rolls, stuffed eggplants and delicious Pide. An extensive mix of vibrant dips makes choosing difficult. Beyond the traditional hummus and tahini, the menu offers beetroot, chilli and carrot and green bean dips. Luckily the exquisite mixed dip plate eliminates indecision and allows you to sample them all along side warm and fluffy Turkish bread.
The aroma of succulent adana, chicken and lamb kebabs, cooking over hot charcoals, wafts through the air and intrigues the senses. The mixed grill is the perfect choice for the indecisive and for those wishing to share. For the lighter eaters, the individual meat plates are ideal and served with warm bread, grilled tomato and salad. The banquets offer those in groups of four or more the possibility to sample an extensive mix of all the menu has to offer.
Do make sure you leave room for dessert as no Turkish meal is complete without a serving of sweet baklava accompanied by rich Turkish coffee.
With the Sultan’s ample servings, you will leave with a feeling of contentment and a desire to spread the word about the discovery of this well priced gem. Sultan’s Table is perfect for a casual midweek meal or Sunday lunch.
Guys and Gals, leave the fancy attire behind, don something comfortable and prepare your palette for a tantalising feast!
