Tas Restaurant reviews

By Andrew M.

Went to Tas restaurant a couple of weeks ago and had a really lovely evening. The food was amazing and the menu hugely varied (lots of vegetarian choices).

I can't fault the service either - we were treated wonderfully and given complimentary warm bread and olives. Tas restaurant is a lovely place that I can't recommend highly enough.

By Evi K.

Really lovely restaurant. Great food, quick service, nice interior ! Fair prices, simply perfect! :)

By Eva M.

They kept us waiting more than 20min just to order, no comments between starters and main, with no apologies for the delays. They forgot about us with the dessert and coffee and they didn't even know how to prepare a coffee and the waiter argued with me about it. Very poor, slow and rude service, not worth for the 12,5% service charge!! starters are good, but mains not the best. I am definitely not coming back or recommend it.

By Holly C.

BE AWARE!! I went to EV last night and they added a mandatory service charge! We didn't want to pay all of it as the service was pretty poor, the managed spent about 5 minutes arguing with us. So dont go unless you are prepare to pay 12.5% for poor service! This service change applies to ALL Tas restaurants!

For authentic, good-value Turkish cuisine in a friendly and vibrant atmosphere, you can’t do better than Tas in London Bridge.

The Venue
Tas has a distinct Turkish feel, which blends Middle Eastern flare and Mediterranean simplicity, much like the country itself. You are met by staff at reception and a large ground floor of exotic beiges, creams and golds. Downstairs is even bigger and offers no-nonsense taverna-style simplicity, with clean white walls and white-linen tables. Despite the bustle you immediately feel you’re somewhere special, with smartly turned-out waiters, loads of space between tables and comfortable seating. You can also see and hear a little of the kitchen action which adds to the experience.

The Atmosphere
This restaurant gets busy but don’t let that put you off. It’s bustling and friendly, drawing in a crowd of locals, tourists and foodies alike. Staff are helpful, efficient knowledgeable about the food they’re serving, which all adds to the experience. In a restaurant of this size and price range, you could well expect less effort, but Tas endeavours to be a cut above, which may well explain its popularity.

The Food
In short, Tas serves quality Turkish cuisine at good-value prices. If you are unfamiliar with Turkish food, it’s well worth investigating, running an enticing fine line between Mediterranean and Middle Eastern flavours. The menu has lots to choose from including, soups, cold and hot starters, salads, grills, casseroles fish and a range of unique desserts. To start, the simple red lentil soup (£3.65) is hearty and delicately spiced while hummus (£3.85) is creamy, moreish and served with warm pita bread. Zeytin Yagli Dolma (£4.15), stuffed vine leaves, is a satisfying rendition of a classic, the leaves filled with moist rice and pine nuts which add subtle kick.

For mains, grills are a good way to get a taste of real Turkey. Try the Kofte (£8.25), which comprises minced lamb, onion, paprika and peppers. Simple yet delicious, it’s succulent and wonderfully spiced, and served on a bed of moist couscous. The Karisik Izgara (£9.65), or mixed grill is also great – and do not expect kebab-shop fare. Featuring a mix of lamb and chicken, it is again beautifully cooked on a proper shish grill and full of underrated flavour. The casseroles are also indigenous specialities. A good bet is a Choban Kavurma (£9.25), a warming blend of tender diced lamb and tomatoes, onions, mushrooms and peppers.

For dessert there are a host of Turkish delicacies to sample. Try the Kayisi Tatlisi (£3.85), a sweet and surprisingly different blend of sun-dried apricots with home-made cream, almond and pistachio. There’s also Kazandibi (£3.55), perhaps the Turkish equivalent of the Mediterranean flan. Literally translated as upside-down milk pudding, it features the unique twists of mazaki pine resin, rose-water and lemon rind for a subtle and moreish flavour. Top it all off with some traditional Turkish coffee (£2.25) which is thick, rich and strong – a welcome alternative to the usual meal-postscripts of espresso and cappuccino.

The Drink
There’s has a reasonable wine list. For white try the Turkish house Nevsheir (£12.45), a dry and citrusy blend that works well with red meat. There is also a choice of mid-range tipples sourced from all over the world, with the Italian Pinot Grigio, Grave Del Friuli (£17.35) a stand out. Reds are strong in selection too, with the house Anatolia (£12.95), again from Turkey, a spicy treat, and the Pinot Noir Aimery (£16.75) a definite stand-out. With a good range of bottled beers, all tastes are adequately catered for.

The Last Word
Tas in London Bridge isn’t unique – there are five other outlets dotted around South East, East and Central London – yet eating here feels effortlessly special. This restaurant lays on an authentic taste of Turkey at price that’s fair. What’s more the staff are friendly and the atmosphere buzzing – perfect for a night out with friends. This is a rare instance where chain apathy has not set in, and the quality of food and service remains unequivocally high – well worth the visit.

I couldn't disagree more with the below. I have eaten at Tas Restaurant both in a large group and as a couple, and I can honestly say I have no complaints with either the food or the service. The food is simply amazing, and the service is always attentive but not over-pushy.

I love that the kitchen areas are open, as it gives me confidence that the food is well-prepared. I recommend that you try Tas Restaurant, as I've had some wonderful evenings there.

We were kept waiting for about 40 minutes before our starters were served at Tas Restaurant, with no apology for the delay. We were then joined by the remainder of our party, who were then served with their main course almost immediately. We had to wait for at least another hour, without our main course and, only when we complained, were we informed that it was ready.

By this time, our guests had almost finished their meal, so we declined ours. Don't go there to Tas Restaurant - the food's not that good and it's definitely understaffed, or staffed with inexperienced waiting staff. It ruined our evening completely.

By T.

Tas Restaurant is a nice restaurant with friendly staff and a brilliant menu which gives you a lovely selection of Mediteranean and Turkish dishes. There is an option of having a full meal from one of their four set menus, which is a nice option to those unfamiliar with these dishes. All meals were served promptly and correctly at Tas Restaurant.

My only complaint is the waitress we had almost took the wrong order from us. We relied on our instincts to correct her before she made the mistake. It was the only thing that let us down, and possibly let the restaurant down with other customers.
