Time Out Says

There aren’t many Turkish restaurants in Dubai so don’t be surprised to find a few homesick folk at this roadside eatery. The pavement tables, simple furnishings and basic menu give a good account of the inspiration – a no-frills Turkish kebab house. Forget the fact it looks out onto a busy road – if you were in search of fine dining you wouldn’t be on a Barsha backstreet – and concentrate on the food. Rip up a pide, an oblong Turkish pizza topped with chunks of steak and herbs, and mop up bowlfuls of moutabel and babaganue. The main attractions, however, are the meaty kebabs. Mutton cubes, lamb chops and tender chicken chunks fall off skewers, while grilled liver or minced meat and yoghurt are fine to pick at. Strangely – maybe it’s the strong coffee or the sticky baklava – the atmosphere is enjoyable, even if it is punctuated by car horns and brake lights.
