- 47 on Grant can be described in one word: Generous
Generous and sincere delight that you came to visit this Halaal . Generous deeply spiritual peace with smiles. Generous excitement at explaining dishes and excitement at doing so. Generous sharing in “how to” (drink Turkish coffee as if I would know!) and generous portions of food, especially flat bread and salads!
47 on Grant is located in the heart of Norwood. While the entrance is on the street, there is ample parking around the corner. The restaurant is a jump on the magic carpet as it opens onto the back of the restaurant to a delightful open air area with soft light. It really is such a gentle, almost sacred space. I loved it before I ate anything!
Nadia is a humble but effective and efficient hostess and servers are well trained. There is no cutting corners. Nadia is clearly passionate about her offering and it shows. I noticed that she checked each dish before it was served.
I had a lamb kebab, unlike anything I’ve had before, cooked outside on an open flame. Surprisingly as I finished the one meat serving, a second appeared. It was delicious. Crispy, thin slices.
I do not drink large amounts of alcohol, so being a Halaal restaurant that does not serve alcohol made no difference to me. The “mock” tails came in a wide variety. Fresh and crisp.
While my dessert was inventive and different, mozzarella inside a thin pastry, deep fried with a sweet sugar sauce with ice cream, I did not enjoy it as much as I hoped I would. I also tried a Turkish traditional cake which was light with ice cream. It was ok, but did not deliver for me on the overall experience.
If you are looking for an intimate dinner, romantic in the city, head for 47 On Grant and sit outside. Be open to experience new flavours and experience a different kind of dining.
