Welcome to Bogaz, we are located on Moulsham Street in Chelmsford, Essex. Our name stems from the Bosphorus in the beautiful city of Istanbul, which is a natural strait that separates Asian Turkey from European Turkey.

Bogaz is founded by Murat Gelmen. He has always had a passion for fine tasting Turkish food. His unique recipes are from years of practice and exploration to perfect the infusion of flavours whilst keeping our dishes traditional. Murat believes that the seasoning of each dish is the key to an authentic Turkish dish. All of our herbs and spices are especially imported from Turkey. Murat opened the first Bogaz in Rayleigh, Essex in 2014. Our second addition to the Bogaz family opened in Chelmsford, Essex in 2017.

Our elite and very experienced chefs are proud to serve our guests with traditional, authentic, Turkish cuisine. Our menu offers a wide variety of starter and main dishes, including a wide variety of vegetarian dishes. We use only the finest of ingredients and we prepare and cook all of our dishes daily, in order to provide a world class dining experience to all of our guests. Our drinks selection varies from fine tasting wines, spirits, cocktails and beers including Efes, which is brewed in Turkey.

Bogaz is the perfect restaurant to experience an authentic Turkish meal or to celebrate your special occasion alongside our warm and friendly staff in our unique atmosphere.
