About Turknaz restaurant
Turknaz Restaurant is situated on the seafront of Whitley Bay. It is a Modern Restaurant that serves authentic Turkish Cuisine.
We had a reservation but remaining in tier 3 meant that couldn’t happen. We weren’t beaten as we got take away in the afternoon instead, and parked up at st. Mary’s lighthouse to eat it. Delicious as always 😊
Went for a Covid 19 restricted meal and while the food was pretty good, the service was appalling, apart for the lovely girl who brought our meal to us. Firstly we arrived at our alloted time and stood in s queue in the enterence doorway. There was a man there with no mask on and the manager/owner?( im guessing as he seemed to be in charge) allowed a whole family to crowd in behind us with no consideration for social distancing. He then let the family squeeze past us jumping the queue! It did not feel safe. Once inside we were seated at a table for two that was literally at the very top of the stairs in the thoroughfare! We ask to be moved and we ended up in a dark area at the back of the upstairs, right next to the loos and the tables where the dishes were stacked up to go in the dumb waiter. This was better but not much. Have to say the young waitress serving us was lovely and very helpful. The manager/owner however had a disgusting attitude. He had obviously squeezed as many people in as possible and, as we had to wait so long to be seated, we were still eating when he obviously decided it was time or us to leave (10pm covid restriction) Rather than politely explaining this he literally stood about 3mtrs away at the bar and stared at us as if he was trying to intimidate us to finish up! While the food was actually quite good, worth a decent review at least, the evening was ruined by the appalling service from the person in charge. I won't be going back in a hurry as I just didn't feel safe or welcome.
Because of the lock down you cancelled our table, fortunately we have dined at the restaurant before and enjoyed our evening.
