Turkish Fusion at 47 on Grant, Norwood

The last time I had Turkish food…was in Turkey… and it was underwhelming to say the least, usually bland, dry meat kebabs with a pile of chips.. So I was a little apprehensive when I was invited to try out 47 on Grant, a new turkish fusion restaurant in Norwood, as I was expecting much…
