Yes, I still have a few more straggling London posts in my hefty backlog.  Don't judge.

First, I'd like to start with the fact that this was my first Turkish food experience (that I could remember).
Second, I was recommended to try Tas for Turkish by several friends because of its reliably good reputation and fair prices.  All in all, I was not disappointed with the food or the experience.  The company, is however, what made it the best time ever.  (I love when that happens).

I spy a double decker bus!

Instead of ordering a single entree, my friend and I decided to venture into small plates by splitting a set mezze meal from the "Renk menu." (£10.95 per person).  Here're a couple of the small plates we sampled:

Though the food may take some time (it's made to order), the grilled meats are incredibly tender, flavorful, and worth the wait.

Tavuk shish - marinated chicken cubes with couscous

Soganli Dana Kavurma - sliced sirloin steak cooked with onions, almonds, tomatoes, red and green peppers, and oregano

Grilled sea bass

Tas is a great place to hit up during the day for their lunch specials or at night with a lovely date.  Try something different.  Go Turkish.
