Owned and run by Metin Kaya, Denis Restaurant in the centre of Bicester has been a focal point for lovers of Turkish and Mediterranean food since it opened in 2005. Denis is a family-run business, and one that takes pride in serving the timeless fl avours of traditional Turkish cuisine. Everything here is freshly cooked to order, but they also deliver on quantity of choice as well as quality. To start your meal, perhaps savour the delights of dolma (stuffed vine leaves with lemon juice), filo pastry stuffed with green lentils and roasted vegetables or some irresistible calamari. The main-course menu offers an extensive selection of specialities like roast chicken breast on potato cakes with lemon, butter and thyme sauce, and an impressive mixed grill served with Turkish rice and salad. If you've still got room, end a wonderful meal with sutlaç - oven-baked rice pudding - or deep-fried ice cream served with orange sauce. What a treat.
