If it's choice you're after, then Turquoise in Newcastle is certainly the place to go. The menu is jam-packed with cold and hot mezze, fresh fish and barbecue skewers - just looking at it will get your tastebuds tingling - and the drinks list is just as extensive. What sets Turquoise apart though, is the fabulous shawarma dishes served here.

Owner Murat's memories of home-cooked food include large family gatherings where lunch was always an event; and he has successfully recreated the atmosphere and culinary offering of Turkey right in the heart of Newcastle. The exterior gives away little of the bustling atmosphere to be found in the basement restaurant; it's full of tempting aromas and chattering diners relaxing amid the calming hues of turquoise and purple. Turquoise is a popular place for friends and families to gather and savour great Turkish food in the way food is best enjoyed: sociably and at a leisurely pace.

The freshest ingredients are utilised to create both regional and national dishes from across Turkey. All the meat is halal and every dish that leaves the kitchen is colourful and utterly mouthwatering. As the emphasis is heavily on fresh, vibrant ingredients, diners will find a plethora of vegetarian-friendly dishes gracing the menu. The aforementioned shawarma dishes feature tender chicken or lamb, slow-cooked on a spit to achieve the most intense flavours possible. Make sure you save room for dessert, as popular Turkish kunefe is freshly made here. Pop along during the day and take advantage of the excellent lunchtime deals, or save yourself the hassle of cooking in the evening and order from the takeaway menu - Turquoise even offers a delivery service
