My friend and I booked a table on the off chance on a Thursday evening. Food was amazing I had the lamb Shish with hand cut chips which were nice and chunky. Wine was very good but which topped it off was the service, staff were always attentive and topping up our wine etc, the manager Denniz was so lovely and genuine, he really cared about the business, he is clearly doing something right at Skewd! Will definitely be back :)

Let me start with the food, which was excellent. I had their signature dish of a lamb shish kebab and the meat was superb.

Now the buts.

The restaurant was so noisy that the waiter could not hear our order properly and we could not hear his response. My whiskey with ginger ale was served(and charged for) without the whiskey! We ordered one portion of each of the two types of rice side orders but only received one portion. We ordered one portion of the mixed vegetables but received and paid for two portions.

They have crammed in far too many tables, so there is not enough room to serve properly and you can hear the occupants of the next table shouting to each other to be heard over the hub-bub.

We left after the main course and went elsewhere, more peaceful, for coffees and liqueurs.

Told chef won prize so decided to try...and the Lamb Shish was a large portion and absolutely excellent! But then ....ordered Shakshuka which is made with eggs and this was just mixed veg, no egg in sight. Something called Beetroot Tarator made with yoghurt and beetroot was tasty...but their hand-cut chips turned out to be large spuds cut into 4 or 5 pieces and deep-fried...not my idea of chips. Grilled octopus was OK . Lamb Pide needed a bit more lamb!!! Staff friendly and efficient,prices not bad. So would happily go back for more Lamb Shish...but would be a bit careful for other items.

2nd visit here and food just as great as I remember. Lots of options from fish to meat and the cocktails were really nice to. Nice atmosphere, gets very busy so would recommend booking before hand. Will definitely return :-)

We have decided to use this Turkish kebab house to meet our old friends and experience the food quality which has been published as best for the last two years.

Well, certainly it deserves to be classified as the best.

We did all choose the fix lunch menu. The simple and elegant presentation of food and complimentary side dishes were exquisite. More importantly, the taste of the lamb and chicken kebabs were the best, coupled with tenderness.

Yes, we would use this restaurant again, and I feel that the owner deserves to be crowned as the best in business and hope he continues to improve the Turkish experience to next cuisine which it deserves.
