Turkish restaurant empty day before promised relaunch

The Lincoln Mad Turk restaurant and takeaway has been left in darkness for almost two weeks.

A sign has appeared in the window promising a September 1 opening, but abandoned building equipment inside is casting doubt.

The Turkish restaurant opened in April 2017 in the former Chicken Cottage unit on Wigford Way.

It served traditional Turkish dishes from breakfast to dinner.

A sign was placed in the window which reads: “Back to business on September 1 under new management.”

At the time of writing, there doesn’t appear to be any furniture inside and the kitchen looks like it has been ripped out.

The Lincolnite has contacted the new owners for more information, but they are unreachable at this time.
