Our Restaurant

Bringing the flavours of Turkey to the heart of Shrewsbury, Istanbul Restaurant and BBQ House serves up mouthwatering meats and other Anatolian eats. Located on Frankwell, a stone’s throw from Theatre Severn, Istanbul Restaurant and BBQ House is the perfect place for a pre-theatre meal, a romantic date, or a big family celebration. Spaces can fill up quickly though, so be sure to book ahead to beat the crowds!

We use a real charcoal grill to cook some of our dishes, giving distinctive flavour like no other! Cold starters range from Malazgirt for aubergine lovers to Kisir (bulgur cracked wheat). Hot starters include a variety of dishes such as Kaburga (BBQ Ribs, Scallops with Halloumi and Lamb Borek. The main meal menu (The Grill – Mangal) is extensive, from kebabs to Rib Eye steak and other lamb dishes. Finally Lahmacun (Special Turkish Pide) is baked on special cookery rocks and you’ll be delighted. You can also choose from the Takeaway Menu (collection only). Open 7 days a week, from 5pm until late. Istanbul Turkish BBQ offers some exciting food in a great venue.

Customer Feedback

  • Excellent service and menu choice. I enjoyed the bread olives and dips that was complimentary, and had Mousaka as a main meal- delicious, would highly recommend restaurant, as everyone around the table enjoyed their meal, and I considered it very good value for money.

  • We gathered here and received a warm welcome. The service was excellent very helpful and our choices were speedily delivered.

    Everything was well cooked and delicious. A birthday cake complete with candles and firework arrived to the strains of "happy birthday" to the surprise of the birthday girl.

    Excellent Turkish wines complemented the meal and the whole party really enjoyed the evening thanks to the attentive staff who made it a super evening - many thanks!!
