Kösebası

Eclectic decor, Turkish food and a Mediterranean vibe at JBR

Kösebası
From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2011
The restaurants that line The Walk always seem perennially busy, no matter what kind of cuisine they serve, such is the popularity of the place itself, which can make it tough when looking for telltale signs as to which establishment may genuinely be full because of the food. Kosebasi serves a wide range of Turkish food, from salads to kebabs, and within seconds of being seated a man will arrive at your table presenting a huge tray of hot and cold mezze from the menu and ask you to make your selection. The sun-dried tomatoes with walnuts are a highlight here.

Served with piping hot bread, you’ll have to be quick to mop the mezze up, as the mains are likely to arrive before you finish. Although not miles away from the Lebanese fare on offer all over the Dubai and the marina, try a peynirli, a Turkish pizza somehow folded into a boat-like shape, or a mixed grill with succulent turkey, beef and lamb kebabs. You won’t be disappointed at Kosebasi, and at the speed it arrives you won’t be hungry either. Kösebası

    One of the best Turkish kebap houses you will ever see outside Turkey with a descent sample of traditional offerings from Ali Nazik to Adana kebap. Good and friendly service, proper kebap concept, and really good value for your money as well.

    Went for breakfast since timeout recommended it in the top 10 places in Dubai for breakfast.... what a joke. Food was oily and bland. Not worth a visit!

    I am sure that the turkish guest who likes only the turkish tea just because it is for free & he complained for the rest.
    I want from all of you to try it in order to know a great food & service experience of the real Turkish cuisine, one of my favorite places in Dubai & I highly recomend it for all people who like Mezzes & Grills.

    As a new Turkish resident in town, I have visited Kosebasi JBR yesterday and I was quite disappointed I should say. First of all the service quality does not look like a Turkish restaurant. If you ever visited a smimilar restaurant in Istanbul, you would know what I mean. We have ordered Cop Sis and Terbiyeli Sis, and one findik lahmacun, lahmacun was served so cold, Terbiyeli Sis supposed to be spicy but not at all and was not tasty. Only good experience was the Turkish tea. Besides the tea, I was not satisfied at all. I would also suggest them to have some Turkish employees, since myself knew much better about the menu than the waiters.
