About Melin Bar & Restaurant

4.2 / 5

from reviews

Melin is the biggest, independently run restaurant in Essex. We specialise in Turkish and Mediterranean cuisine. Our Head Chef has over 30 years’ experience, training and working in the heart of eastern Turkey, a region renowned for its excellent food. Combined, our chefs have over 180 years’ experience in hospitality and fine dining.

We are open 365 days a year. We can cater for weddings, birthdays, and any other special occasions; or just simply a table for two. We have live cabaret, singing and dancing at the weekends; and we host special events and performances too. The ambiance at Melin is like no other – from our marble floors to the crystal chandeliers, nothing about Melin is ordinary. We pay close attention to service, taste, décor, style and presentation.

Nothing brings people together like good food. We look forward to welcoming you to Melin.

We visited on Monday at 6:30 so wasn’t extremely busy. Excellent atmosphere and service from Aisha. Slightly overpriced food, I mean £17 for truffle fries is crazy! I was charged £5 for olives which I thought was complimentary as the waitress asked if I wanted olives, I asked for still water not sure if it was tap or actual bottled water and I was charged £6! Drinks were nice and good portions for food. So glad that there is parking behind the restaurant!

Came here for my friends birthday. Our table was booked for 9pm. We was told our table isn't ready and to go upstairs to the bar. Then our table was ready for us for 10pm an hour later. Our food order was taken and arrived at the table for 10:50pm, having being told it's busy and would only take 20minutes. The service is appalling! We had to double check our bill as we got charged for extra's that we did not request. One waitress kept asking us if we ordered these cocktails we hadn't ordered! The whole venue is pretty looking but total waste of time! I feel like my best friend was so disappointed by her failed birthday meal! The lighting was dark and the music was so loud we couldn't hear each other speak. I wouldn't recommend this place at all!! Go to an authentic Turkish restaurant instead. Total waste of time and money. Not worth the energy at this place. You will be disappointed

If you’d like to be utterly disappointed - Melin is your place. * Atmosphere: full of posy 18 year olds on birthday parties. The restaurant is rammed corner to corner with far too many tables. * The hostess was extremely rude, with a chip on her shoulder which instantly soured the experience. * Our table was booked at 915 and we didn’t receive our first drinks until 945 which was the wrong order, they then got the waitress who took the drinks over and pulled her over to embarrass her. Very unprofessional. * finally the drinks arrived at 10pm however I went to the bar to collect them myself as the service was so slow. * our food order was taken at 10pm and we didn’t eat until 11pm. * The prices are frankly ridiculous : £17 for a small plate of truffle fries. More expensive than you’d ever pay in Mayfair. * over all experience is that I’d never return and I’d never recommend. If you want to listen to Sean Paul whilst eating a over priced kebab then this might be up your street.

Great place, great service and an atmosphere both for a nice family dinner on Sunday and a classy party with friends on a Wednesday or Saturday night. Food is exquisite and priced to reflect the large portion size, high quality and the service offered. Highly recommend.

Food is really tasty and there’s live music! I recommend the wings for starters and salmon. Unfortunately the steak was really chewy and bad. So maybe get a fillet steak and not the other cuts.
