THIS week, it was announced by the owner of Basildon’s new plush Turkish restaurant that it is aiming to have a “soft launch” next week.

Since the former East Mayne Longmans Motors building was acquired by Abdullah Tekagac, him and his team have been working on transforming it into a “modern and inviting atmosphere” space, called The Eyna Lounge and Grill.

He also told the Echo he is confident the restaurant will be fully open by Christmas.
