This restaurant may be chef owned and family run but it has the atmosphere of a family who resent being there. Not much smiling between themselves. The service seems reluctant at best and if you do get a smile it's with a strain. Lamb shish served with rice, grilled tomato, grilled pepper, grilled onion, salad, pickles and olives; £9.50 to...

Used to have takeaway from here many years ago but moved out of the area. Visited here last week, and had a mixed kebab shish, the food is delicious cooked to perfection, not like an ordinarily kebab takeaway, food is cooked to order and the place is also a Turkish restaurant. Would certainly recommend.

Amazing, fresh, delicious Turkish food made even better with great family service, a relaxed restaurant environment and a free baklava & ice cream to finish...everything food wise was a highlight - the kebabs also look amazing and we will definitely be back soon to try them :) Great value - £65 for 3 people incl drinks.

This is an unassuming, small restaurant with very friendly staff and delicious food. The food is very fresh with mostly homemade ingredients, and generous portions. Highly recommended!

Don't make the mistake of walking past Ekin and thinking this is just a another Kebab place. It most definitely isn't. It's not flash certainly but the food is excellent, the service fast and attentive and the cost is very reasonable. My particular favourite is the Turkish sausage starter and the garlic prawns (in some delicious butter . herb sauce)... More

This is a local takeaway and a real favourite. The food is fantastic - I get the Yoguhrt and chicken - and though it seems a little pricey for a takeaway, that's usually because I order too much without realising. The yoghurt with chicken is £13 and enough to share between two as it comes with rice, bread and salad.... More

Visited several times, usually for takeaway but the service inside this small restaurant is very good. This isn't a typical Turkish restaurant or "kebab house", nothing processed or questionable here. Everything is cooked fresh on the grill. Even less important things like the rice they cook is delicious. I believe this is a family run restaurant, and the staff are... More

Great for a quick meal or takeaway! Love their mixed grill or lamb kofte. For veggies they do a great mussaka!

I went to this restaurant on the strength of the reviews here on Tripadvisor and was not disappointed. It's not really a proper restaurant - more like a takeaway with a few tables. That said, the garlic prawns and mixed grill were absolutely delicious. For anyone who's familiar with Sheesh Turkish restaurant in Chigwell, Ekin is just as good but... More
