A popular Liverpool restaurant has been named one of the best in the world, and handed an incredible TripAdvisor award.

Akaysa is located in the former home of noted designer boutique Giancarlo Ricci and its prominent location on Bold Street has seen it become a welcome addition to one of the city’s best food and drink locations.

Now the owners of the Turkish restaurant are pleased to announce they have been ranked in the top 10% of restaurants in the world on Tripadvisor.

The Travellers’ Choice Best of Best award, formerly Certificate of Excellence, recognises businesses that earn consistently great reviews, with winners in the top 10% of listings worldwide.

Each winner has passed rigorous trust and safety standards set by Tripadvisor and fewer than 1% of Tripadvisor’s 8 million listings are awarded Best of the Best, signifying the highest level of excellence.

Owner of Akasya, Yunus Emre Uğur described the win as “mind blowing”. He said: “We have been number 1 on Tripadvisor in Liverpool for some time now and the reviews have grown and grown.

“Top spot from over 1500 restaurants in Liverpool has been a great achievement for us. But to be contacted by Tripadvisor to tell us we are a Tripadvisor Best of the Best Award winner for 2023 is mind blowing.”

He added: “This is testament to our marvellous team from Chefs to the front of house.”
