Today, our team decided to gather and share all of their favourite Mediterranean restaurants in Walton on Thames because they know you love Mediterranean cuisine just as much as they do!
5 Of The Best Mediterranean Restaurants In Walton on Thames According To Our Team
First on our list is Cappadocia which is an amazing Turkish restaurant in Walton on Thames that our team loves very much and visits quite often. The interior of the venue is stunning, the menu is impressive, the food is delicious, and the staff is always friendly which is exactly what we are looking for in a great restaurant.
When it comes to their starters, we highly recommend the Hummus, the Cacik (cucumbers, yoghurt, garlic, fresh dill, mint, olive oil), the Lahmacun, the Falafel, and the Oven-Baked Mushrooms.
Our favourite main dishes are, of course, the kebabs – especially the Adana and the Cheltik Iskender (Scottish Sirloin and lamb kofte, Turkish bread, yoghurt, secret sauce). We also really enjoy their Zencefilli Tavuk (chicken cubes sautéed with fresh ginger, herbs, garlic, and light cream, served with rice) and the Grilled Fillet of Wild Seabass (+ fresh herbs, lemon garlic butter sauce, sautéed spinach and potatoes).

We love their fish and seafood tapas – the Gambas Pilpil (spicy marinated prawns), the Calamares, the Mejillones a la Marinara (mussels with onion, white wine, cream), and the Muslitos de Cangrejo (deep-fried crab meat). Of course, they also have excellent meat tapas such as Croquetas De Jamon, Lomo A La Plancha (pork fillet), and the Jamon Serrano.

Walton BBQ is a very casual Turkish kebab shop – perfect for a quick lunch or dinner. We often order home delivery from Walton BBQ when we are craving Turkish food and want to enjoy it at home.
