Ke­bab shop skew­ers Ritz

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A KE­BAB shop is rub­bing shoul­ders with top name Miche­lin star chefs as one of the Lon­don’s top ten restau­rants.

Meze Men­gal was only opened 12 years ago by Turk­ish broth­ers Sahin and Ah­met Gok, but ranks higher than fancy din­ers like The Ritz on web­site TripAd­vi­sor.

It is cur­rently ranked seventh, with only Miche­lin starred restau­rants like Gor­don Ram­say’s Petrus and Michel Roux’s Le Gavroche scor­ing higher than its 95 per cent ap­proval rat­ing.

The broth­ers came to Lon­don in the 80s, start­ing at a Wimpy, be­fore set­ting up their own ke­bab shop in Lewisham, south Lon­don.

Sahin, 43, said of the news that his res­tau­rant ranked 7th out of more than 10,000 re­viewed: “It’s nice when you do some­thing for peo­ple and they ap­pre­ci­ate it.”
