Bosporus has opened their second Full size Restaurant this week at the Wafi Mall in Dubai. We have been already down for a visit and checked out the new location. First impression: This place is huge. More impressive even is the look when you are coming from the Valet Parking. The area looks really cool with the Restaurant on the first floor.
The inside with the wooden floor and the very cool ceiling looks really high class and very stylish. Certainly an upgrade to the one on the Jumeirah Beach Road. You got a balcony as well where you can smoke Shisha if you fancy to. We had decided to sit rather inside due to the hot weather.
We started the order with a bottle of water, a Vanilla Milkshake and a Mango and a Strawberry juice. The Vanilla Milkshake that I had had a very nice flavor and has the power to make you addicted to it. Rarely I had a milkshake that tasted so good. The Strawberry juice not only looked good but as well tasted very good, same can be said about the Mango juice.
As a starter we ordered the Mini Lahmacun, rather than one big one you get with the Mini Lahmacun’s four pieces which are easier to share, specially if you are with more people. The Lahmacun came not really as a starter but together with the main course, but nevertheless it was super tasty and for me a must order item. If you visit Bosporus, make sure you order the Lahmacun, else you are really missing out on something.
Main course we ordered the Iskender Kebab, a chicken Doner Durum, a mixed Grill and a Kuzu Tandir. Prepare some time with you if you visit Bosporus, everything is made fresh upon order and that takes a bit, not that we felt boring, but you might plan your visit with some extra time, it is well worth it. The main courses came relatively soon and the looks of the food where stunning. If the taste would only be half as good as the looks we still would have a superb dinner. But the taste was definitely matching the look and my Iskender Kebab was amazing. The lamb was tasty and very soft and scrumptious.
The Doner Durum (chicken) came cut in halfs and as well was lovely. The chicken was plenty inside and tasteful. The mixed Grill is a lot of items and I tried quite some and all were brilliant. Specially the slightly spicy chicken Kebab was awesome. The Kuzu Tandir (Lamb) came with potato and was a delight. Overall we could not have been more happy with the mains we had chosen. The amount was just right and not too much or too less, a perfect arrangement.
Of course we couldn’t go without trying out the desserts, so we picked a Sutlac and a Kunefe for this. Again, as well this is freshly made, so bring some time in order to enjoy everything that Bosporus has to offer. The Sutlac was superb tasting and had a savory sweet flavor. I did not try they Kunefe as I was too full already, but I was told that there was nothing to complaint on that one either.
Bosporus in the Wafi Mall is my new favorite Turkish Restaurant. It has enough space that you probably never need to bother how full it might be and the ambiance is simply perfectly chic and still relaxing. We enjoyed our dinner out very much and will definitely return to try out some other items of the long menu. Value for money wise we had been on around 500AED for three persons with starters and all around which is a fair price and quite reasonable in my opinion.
