Our story

Topkapi Restaurant and Bar started its story in February 2017. With big ideas, this family-run restaurant and bar is bringing big authentic flavours, from Turkey straight to the hearts and stomachs of Hazel Grove and its surrounding community.

Hassan, who was born in the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, came to Manchester with his parents and 5 sisters when he was 4 years old. He has always stayed connected to Northern Cyprus, regularly travelling back for family occasions. It was these occasions, with the beautiful platters of succulent meats, fresh ingredients, generously flavoured dishes and the warmth and generosity he received at every visit, that inspired him to open Topkapi.

Topkapi is going from strength to strength, building an excellent reputation for their delicious food and delightful cocktails. But it’s the Turkish hospitality that is like no other, and the warm welcome you will experience, just like a guest at a family occasion!
