Sumac Room – Milton Keynes
A welcome addition to the Xscape mall in Milton Keynes, Sumac Room is a Turkish restaurant that is a step up from the usual fast food and chain restaurants. With a comfortable setting and a full service bar, movie nights won’t be the same again!
Sumac Room has very swanky decor with lush seating, gorgeous lighting and great music that works well for a drink with friends or a meal with the family. The price point is moderate and the menu offers your typical grilled meat options, vegetarian choices but also a great variety in seafood. We were served a set meal on the day but I’ve got my mind set on this lobster dish they offer…Looks divine!
We were recently invited to the official PR launch on the 15th of November and for Monday evening, it was a great turn up of fellow bloggers and influencers along with the Mayor of Milton Keynes.
We were welcomed by Prosecco and wine with a little bit of time to mingle and take pictures. This was soon followed by a set meal that included two varieties of hummus, grilled meats, salad, rice and aubergine sarma ( flavourful aubergine wrapped over a meat patty). This platter was a perfectly portioned meal for one and had just the right flavours and texture, paired nicely with the self refilling Prosecco! (there was wine too!) I loved the food but I think it was too mildly seasoned for Turkish cuisine – almost in order to fit every one’s palette which is understandable. I like my food to to tickle my tastebuds but that’s just me.
Following the meal was freshly made baklava and let me tell you, after Hafis Mustafa in Dubai ( since 1864) this has got to be the most amazing, freshest, melt in your mouth Baklava I’ve ever had. You have GOT TO try this!! I asked for a second piece and order myself some Turkish tea just so that I can have a moment !! Love it!
Entertainment: Through out the evening the lovely @Claire_slaney1 lit up the venue with her smile and mesmerising belly dance moves. If only every Monday could be like that…
We had a great time and would definitely go back – and urge you to try too! Leave us your comments telling us what you thought about the place and the food any how accurate do you think I was?
FINAL VERDICTLove the ambience and the food is great – Needs a bit more seasoning. Yet to try the seafood and cocktails but the Baklava is a must must try!!
