Located just eight miles from Leicester, in the town of Syston, Mangal has been bringing a little Turkish delight to the area for the last seven years. This family restaurant prides itself on providing delicious and authentic Turkish cuisine at affordable prices.

Having been to Turkey ourselves and tasted the delectable, aromatic cuisine on offer, we were excited to be revisiting some of our fondest memories - though we weRenét sure whether Mangal would live up to our high expectations. But our fears were entirely unnecessary because the exceptional locally sourced menu wonderfully complements the rustic yet contemporary Turkish atmosphere.

In a romantic candlelit setting, we began with the excellent starters of haydari (creamy yoghurt with fresh mint, dill and garlic) and sigara borek, which is freshly fried pastry filled with feta cheese and parsley - our doubts were totally laid to rest and our appetites thoroughly whetted. Mangal also has its own indoor barbecue, and there's nothing better to get the tastebuds tingling than the smell of cop shish cooking on the grill in front of you. My partner went for the fantastically fresh fish of the day, sea bream, while I opted for their signature mixed grill of Adana, a dish of spicy minced lamb grilled on skewers, that came with a melt-inthe- mouth pilic and lamb shish. The beautiful blend of subtle flavours and the incredible softness of the meat, achieved through slow marinating, are a testament to the expertise of Mangal's magnificent cooking team. Finishing with an apple tea and a Turkish coffee, we were soon absorbed in fond memories of our holidays dining in the Turkish sun.

With great food, fine Turkish wines like Yakut and Cankaya, and belly dancers available on request, Mangal is a spot for pure pleasure. The warm atmosphere makes it an obvious choice for an intimate dinner on Valentine's Day, but equally suitable for a large Christmas party.
