Dubai-based Turkish restaurant chain Bosporus is set to open its first London outpost later this month.

Due to launch in Leicester Square, the Bosporus mission 'is to become London’s number one destination to enjoy authentic Turkish cuisine and hospitality'.

The group 'vows to deliver the Turkish roots and culture of yesterday, while meeting the highest quality and standards of today'.

Menus will remain the same as they do in Dubai, and feature a number of staples of Turkish cuisine including lamb köfte made with bulgur, black pepper and parsley, cooked in yogurt and served with iskender sauce; and traditional baklava made with handmade filo pastry, melted sugar and pistachio.

Other options to feature on the menu include the 'Ali Nazik kebab' that sees a smoky aubergine dip mixed with yogurt and topped with minced lamb; a dish of slow-cooked chicken soup with vermicelli rice, tomato and cumin; and  Turkish rice served with sautéed shrimp and vegetables.

The restaurant's interior will 'reflect Turkish architecture and culture with a contemporary twist', with an 'ergonomically designed' dining space 'to create a comfortable, cosy and relaxing vibe'.

Bosporus was founded in Dubai in 2010 by Global Catering Service (GCS), and currently operate six sites across the country.
