Was in London on a business trip. At lunch time, I stopped by Koza. I honestly have hesitated at first because it wasn't too "attractive" (from the oitside). But I once I was in, I loved it :) I absolutely recommend the Steamed minted-rice stuffed Vine Leaves, they are so DELICIOUS ^^

We stopped in for lunch before visiting the Imperial War Museum across the street. Our Adana was fresh,well prepared, and plentiful, served with bread, salad, and vegetables for less than 10 pounds. The service was prompt and friendly. In short, a delicious meal and pleasant experience. If you're a fan of Turkish food, you'll love it.

I've eaten here a lot and on every occasion the food is always fantastic. Nice selection of wines and the baklava is a tasty sweet to end the meal. The waiting staff are friendly and helpful too.

My friend and I chose Koza as we enjoy Turkish food and it was close to where we were staying. And we were not disappointed with the food. For a set price of £12.90, it's possible to choose one of each from a range of entrees and mains. We chose a plate of four meze and lightly fried squid for... More

Love this place, the food just keeps getting better and better. The cold meze starters are really good but I love the falafel, the presentation is really good and portion sizes are great, but more importantly the food tastes great. Would recommend the Adana kebab or the mixed kebab! also tried the chicken kebab and that is great too and... More

Staff here were very friendly on our arrival and it was not very busy for a Friday night. The cold meze starter was good although I was a little surprised that the bread to have with this is charged for. We had to wait quite a long time for the stuffed squid and baby octopus hot starters. When they came,... More
