Are you a huge fan of Turkish cuisine? Do you live in Upminster? Then you are most likely having a hard time trying to find the best Turkish restaurants with delicious transitional food, great service, and a lovely atmosphere.

Thankfully, because our team is also a huge fan of Turkish food, we have spent a lot of time trying to find the best places… and after months of searching, we are finally ready to present to you the best Turkish restaurants in Upminster you can visit!

LEFKE Restaurant & Bar

First on our list is Lefke – one of the best Turkish restaurants in Upminster that we highly recommend you visit whenever you are craving delicious traditional food!

Start off with either a hot or cold starter (or why not both). We love their Dolma (stuffed vine leaves with rice), the Sigara Borek (pastry filled with feta), the Calamari, and the Lahmacun which is a traditional Turkish pizza.

When it comes to their main dishes, you can never go wrong with the charcoal-grilled kebabs – Adana Kofte, Lamb Iskender Kebab, Chicken Iskender Kebab, or even the Halloumi Kebab if you don’t eat meat. All of Lefke’s kebabs are served with bulgur and a salad.

On their menu, you will also find burgers and delicious doner wraps that we also recommend.

Golden Skewer Bar & Grill

The next place on our list is Golden Skewer Bar & Grill which technically is not a restaurant but a kebab shop but their food is so delicious that we still had to feature them on our list. They do have a dine-in area, however, it’s pretty small so we recommend you order takeaway or home delivery instead of eating there.

Now, let’s focus on their impressive menu filled with traditional foods. We always grab a starter – for example, Hummus, Calamari with tartar sauce, special Turkish sausage, or Meatballs in tomato sauce.

Then we either move on to their charcoal-grilled kebabs or their other meat main dishes. You will love their Meat Moussaka (with minced meat, aubergine, courgette, carrot, onions, green and red peppers, garlic, bechamel sauce, cheese) which is also served with rice and a salad.

We also recommend their Chicken Shish with Yoghurt (with bread, tomato sauce, melted butter, rice, a salad, and yogurt) or the Lamb Ribs which also come with rice and a salad.

S & S Charcoal Grill

Another simple and relaxed restaurant offering mouthwatering Turkish food in Upminster is S & S Charcoal Grill. The interior is super casual which makes this place perfect for a quick lunch or dinner after work.

As a Turkish cuisine lover, we are sure you are looking for delicious kebabs – and this restaurant definitely offers just that! From Doner Kebab, Shish Kebab, and Kofte Kebab to special options such as their Grilled Mixed Kebab (with chicken, lamb shish, and kofte, served with a salad, sauce, pitta bread) and the S & S Special Kebab (1 chicken shish, 2 lamb shish, 1 kofte, lamb donner, charcoal-grilled vegetable, a salad, sauce, pitta bread).

The Essex Grill Chicken

Last on our list is yet another kebab shop in Upminster that has a fabulous menu, offers delicious food as well as excellent service. Keep in mind, however, that they do not serve starters – only main dishes such as kebabs, doner wraps, and burgers with patties cooked on a charcoal grill.

We love their options such as the Chicken Wings and Ribs Meal (which is a mix of chicken wings and lamb ribs, served with salad, pitta bread, rice, sauce, grilled vegetables), the Donner Halep (lamb donner, bread. tomato sauce, rice), the Chicken Shish Kebab and the Chicken and Yoghurt!

If you are going with more than three people, we recommend getting their Full House Kebab Meal which consists of Lamb donner, chicken donner, lamb shish, chicken shish, kofte shish, lamb ribs, chicken wings, rice, a salad, 2 chips, 2 sauces, 4 pitta bread, and grilled vegetables.
