My partner and I thought we'd try Nazar after being bored of the usual drivel found on the Bedford High Street and have to say we were pleasantly surprised.

Prompt greeting and seating with complimentary flat bread and olives set the evening off right which was a nice bonus. For starters we decided to go for the 'Hot Mix Meze' which was very nice however undoubtedly the star of the show was the the Calamari. Although it was just breaded and fried, it was the most tender I'd ever tasted without even a hint of 'rubbery-ness'.

For mains we went for Kebabs rather than anything more traditional. The meat was nicely marinated, seasoned and perfectly grilled.

Overall, Nazar is a fantastic addition to Bedford High Street and I sincerely hope it remains there for years to come. Good service and great food as always, prove to be a winning recipe to the point that i'm already planning my next visit!

Visited Nazar on a Thursday night with a group of friends. Staff were welcoming and attentive. Food was excellent and portions were a good size. Would definitely recommend.

we went there on Friday evening with my husband . For starter I had calamari which I had enjoyed very much and my husband ordered king prawn but he found the portion very small .For main course we had lamb shish and mixed grill which was fantastic. Meat was lovely and tender and portion was quite generous. Staff were very good. they were attentive without being over bearing. We will definitely go again and take our friends without any hesitation.

came on a friday night: no record of our booking! but still seated.
lovely interior though i find the 'acoustics' terrible. found it hard to have a conversation.

The food: chefs selection and lamb ribs. both were tasty and generous.
I was expecting the lamb ribs to be just a bit of meat on the bone but these were lovely and meaty and not too fatty.
chefs selection was all good.
just a shame about the rice served with the mains: nothing special and it lets the meal down a little.

Would rather have the 'free' bread they serve when you arrive. could eat that all day...
