Review on Tas
Drawing much of its trade from the nearby Old Vic and South Bank, this stylish Turkish brasserie wows the crowds with its livewire atmosphere, music and great-value food.
The array of hot and cold meze is a perennial crowd-puller, with its selection of nibbles like borek (filo pastries stuffed with Feta cheese and spinach) and warm aubergines with peppers and cool yoghurt. To follow there are grills in abundance (from marinated chicken wings to lamb's kidneys with oregano and cumin) plus a good showing of casseroles (appropriate, since 'tas' is the name of a traditional Anatolian cooking pot). Moussaka or halibut baked in foil might be suitable alternatives, vegetarians are given plenty of choice and there are traditional sweets like kunefe ('shredded wheat' with unsalted white cheese and honey syrup) to round things off. Wash it all down with some gutsy Turkish wine.
This is the flagship a group that has spawned several spin-offs across the capital (visit their website for more details of specific outlets).
