We visited The Dining Room in Leigh to help celebrate my wife's birthday. We were seated in the lovely rounded booth area near the bar. We have had the pleasure of eating there before, and all our expectations were met by Mehmet and ALL the staff in the restaurant. All aspects of the service were friendly and efficient. This place...

We stumbled on this restaurant which was very crowded, we were going to leave when a meal passed us while waiting to be seated. Our meal was very nice, well presented and very nice, I enquiries who the chef was and was told my meal had been prepared by a Turkish chef, I passed on my compliments. If other restaurants... More

We ate here for a family meal this week, after hearing several recommendations, and it was simply excellent! The food was very good, the service was very fast and attentive, and it was all amazing value for money. We've eaten much worse food at double the price. We look forward to visiting again.

I would & have recommended to my friends as recent as Tuesday of this week. This restaurant gets my full approval for quality & value.... More

The food was absolutely delicious and I was pleased to see some nice vegetarian (no egg) options. The only little downside was the many staff who stand around watching you. I understand it means that they are there to help you straight away, but it feels a little awkward

I visited this restaurant as part of a group of 8 friends. It's a lovely restaurant with friendly staff and the food was delicious. Exceeded my expectations especially with it being reasonably priced. We went on a Tuesday evening which means you can take your own wine (any other alcohol you purchase there) this meant not only was the evening... More

Too easy to ignore as I live very close to the restaurant, however my return visit was a very pleasant surprise. The food was superb and the service was impeccable. The main objective of the staff was to serve the diners. It was noticeable that the staff did not chat to each other, the management must be given due credit... More
