Bosphorous, South Kensington, London

Awesome mixed grill: deeply flavourful pieces of lamb; slices of doner kebab, dryish, almost jerky-like, with a smoky concentrated flavour; good moist kofte , cooked just right. A cut above Hala in Haringey for the grill. Enhanced with grilled peppers and onions and the lively tang and spicy heat of a chilli/tomato sauce. A nice warm pita. Squirts of lemon juice at the table cut the greasiness of grill perfectly.

      I remember you said that the spicy kofte was your favourite? or was it something else? What else is good there?

        Always surprised how big a fuss is made over Bospherous, but hey, I'm not really into doner-kebab so I am not the best person to judge. That being said, their rice and sides are objectively terrible.

        1. re: brokentelephone

          who ever said anything about doner kebab?! and the sides can be actively delicious.

          1. re: howler

            Limster spoke at great length about doner kebab in the original post! I hope you enjoy your meals there, but you won't have the pleasure of running into me there!

            PS: I know its all the rage to put aside cleanliness concerns for good food, but that place is really disgusting. Sit in the rear seats, and take a look in the corners DREK!

                I always spelled it DRECK. :-) What part of town are you from??? <g>

                  I'm often in need of good kebab but I cannot check their website to see if booze is permitted.

                  Any of you peeps know?
