Ningbo Mevlana Turkish Restaurant review
Ningbo is getting more and more international and we can now choose between various places offering authenthic food from Brazil, Greece, Italy, Lebanon, Mexico and of course Turkey with Mevlana Turkish Restaurant.
Concerning food, Mevlana’s offer mainly consists of grilled meat with traditional Turkish dishes like “Shish Kebab” (meat threaded on a skewer and grilled), “Doner Kebab” (roasted meat cooked on a vertical spit) as well as more “international” Lamb Chops or Chicken Wings.
Don’t worry if you are not very keen on meat as the menu also includes vegetarian dishes as well as other popular Western dishes like Pizzas, different types of Pasta and even Seafood.
It is easy for anyone, foreigners or locals, to make their choice as all dishes are shown on the menu with pictures and text in Chinese, English and Turkish.
Although we felt service was quite basic, we had a nice chat with the Turkish Manager, who introduced us some dishes and was wondering around ready to help without being too omnipresent.
Decoration of the restaurant is quite typical with beautiful brown, red and gold Ottoman style wallpaper, bronze type candlesticks and Turkish music sets the ambiance. One weak point is the restroom far below the overall standard.
By the way do you know who is Mevlana? He was a 13th century Muslim saint and Anatolian mystic known throughout the world for his exquisite poems and words of wisdom. So if you want wisdom and peace at least in your stomach, we recommend dropping in.
Place is conveniently open all day long until late in the evening. Mevlana Turkish Restaurant offers a reasonably priced and casual authentic dining experience…(Editorial Team – 2012 June)
