Where to go for the best Turkish food in Dubai.

The Westin Mina Seyahi is a culinary destination that we love. Their latest dining addition is Baba Grill, a Turkish Steakhouse that we were recently invited to review.

The open kitchen and cozy indoor seating is ideal for the warmer days while the spacious outdoor terrace is perfect for cooler winter months.

The menu features all our Turkish favorites including a delightful array of mezze, grills and steaks.

We began our meal with octopus served with grilled beetroot and yogurt-a unique and refreshing dish we thoroughly enjoyed.

If you can’t resist crispy calamari then the Baba version with a homemade sauce on the side is a must-try. Crunchy on the outside and tender inside-this was moreish and worth the calories.

The village tomato salad with, onion, capsicum, walnuts, pomegranate sauce was a hearty portion but we were quick to wipe it clean with the hot bread.

Both are mains were absolute showstoppers.

Steaks are also a main feature at the restaurant and our order of the Sirloin with a side of fries truly hit the right spot. The best part about ordering a steak here is that you get to pick from a collection of the finest knives from around the world. They will also bring a selection of different salts (pink, black etc) to sprinkle on the meat.

Of course, we weren’t going to leave without trying their signature Kebabs. After much deliberation, we picked the smoked kebab made with lamb was marinated in spices and then served on a bed of flatbread, smoked eggplant puree and a generous dallop of thick yoghurt with a hint of garlic. This dish was outstanding!
