About Mez Bar and Restaurant

'A taste of the Med on the Isle of Dogs' - perhaps not the most appealing of slogans, but it's true at least. The Mez kitchen is run by gold award-winning Masterchef Ozkan Kalender who's poured his world-class expertise into the adventurous, generous Turkish menu of authentic casseroles, grills, seafood and salads. And it's not just the heady combination of flavours and textures that's worth a repeat visit, but the presentation. Take the lemon sole cooked in a sautéed spinach, white wine, cream and almond sauce. It's all here. If you don't know much about Turkish food, Mez is a fine place to start learning.
