Visited barru on 9th October for a bit of lunchtime delights. The meal and service was faultless. This place is without doubt the best place to eat turkish cuisine. I've tried many others in the past but barru is by far superior. They keep the...same excellent standards day in day out. Tried the iskender from there for the 1st time and it's up there with the very best meals I have ever eaten. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐More

We was a big party it’s hard to get everyone happy and we couldn’t...be more happy every simple guest was pleased and easy to make all our wishes! The food was wooowww , there is no words to explain the taste and how fresh the food looks! I definitely recommend this restaurant! Is one of the best if not the best in westcliff-on-sea! I will come back there for sure, I can’t wait to back… The best restaurant everrrrr I couldn’t Finnish my day more happy than I am 🙏🙏🙏 P.S they even take pictures of us !!!More

Since moving out of the area, we still return to firm favourites on our old stamping ground from time to time.. We haven't been to Barru for a while but made an impromptu visit without a booking last Friday. Luckily we were able to get...a table provided our meal was completed before a later set of diners arrived, which was fine. The food was absolutely delicious and plentiful. The service was attentive and friendly. As we had to vacate our table, we missed the live singer, so have booked a table for a Friday evening in October and are taking our neighbours with us this time.More

Good service, fabulous value for money, just lacking in flavour, and small portions, no outside seating which is a shame

Road parking. Difficult but far from impossible. Car parks in next road (Ceylon Road) or across the busy London Road not very near.
