Edem 46

A Turkish restaurant with a vast menu and impactful flavours

Time Out Says

From the massive open space at the entrance of Edem 46 to the surrounding décor with Turkish and eastern influences, the restaurant seems promising. If only the weather permitted, the outdoor area has views of Al Sadd. On the downside, the staff have already put us off with their lax and disrespectful attitudes. We change four tables before we’re finally seated at a clean one.

Thankfully, the true superstar here is the food itself. Expectedly, we see a myriad of Turkish and Middle Eastern dishes on the massive menu with a few continental offerings, making it ideal for families and big groups.

The mixed appetiser platter offers a medley of flavours and staple starters including a delicious hummus with a twist, labneh, a crisp lettuce salad, babaganoush and muttabal. The vine leaves are a standard affair, fresh tasting but far from mind-blowing.

For the main course, you cannot skip the Iskandar kebab – perfectly grilled bits of tender meat, served atop a bed of rolled pieces of Turkish bread and accompanied by light, flavoured rice and yoghurt. There’s a brilliant balance of savoury and refreshing.

The grilled mesahab chicken is juicy, tender and properly executed. It goes well with the fresh Turkish bread and hot chips.

We’re content with the food but reeling at the disappointing service which is unacceptable since we are the only customers in the restaurant. A repeat visit to dine-in may not be in the books but takeaway definitely is.
