Turkish chef Civan Er and restaurateur Cem Bilge (the duo behind famed Istanbul restaurant Yeni Lokanta) open in Soho, on the former site of Vinoteca, showcasing "contemporary Anatolian cookery" and ocakbasi culture.
Harden's survey result
“As good as that we ate when in the Turkish original” – this stylish-looking Soho newcomer is a London sibling to one of Istanbul’s hottest properties, and (at odds with some press reviews) it impresses all early reporters (notwithstanding the odd incident of “shaky service” or “lack of ambience”), with “interesting” cuisine produced by star chef Civan Er.
Yeni Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Wow Food. Not a kebab house and not what you would expect from a Turkish restaurant but so much better! Lovely fresh food, interesting flavours and friendly chef!"
"Every dish was delicious and inventive. The menu was straightforward but had good variety. Service was caring and we felt very welcome. However I docked a mark for service because the drinks consistently took too long to arrive, good though they were."
