Booked a table for two with my wife. Very welcoming upon arrival. Both of us ordered the set menu; mezze platter as starter, a variety of grilled meat and kebabs as a main, and fresh fruit baklava with coffee or tea to finish. This all for just 21 pounds a person. Food was very well prepared and tasted great. Nice... More

Great great great. The food is cooked front of house and I love seeing my food being prepared. Buzbag at £18.95 is a steal and finally my family loved it. Go go go

This is a good option for a cheap meal one evening. The food is not outstanding, and for some reason they put mil in their hummus, but it never disappoints and the service is good.

So pleased a friend showed us this restaurant! The staff are great and the food really good. Love the open barbecue grill and also the fact that there are regular customers who've come each week for years. The two brothers who served us were really welcoming - will definitely visit this hidden gem again, we regularly come on shopping trips... More

Me and my partner went here last week. We orders the set meal which was a 5 course meal for the prices of £20z. There was a lot of food that came with it and the beer was also nice. We will come back against

Visited with friends and we loved this restaurant. The service was welcoming and friendly, food was excellent and great chilled atmosphere. Great open BBQ in the centre of the restaurant too which adds to the ambience and great smells!

I'm a Muslim and I was fasting. For the iftaar meal (the meal where we break the fast) we bought a Kofte Kebab and mix Shwarmaa. The Kofte Kebab was nice and tender, not dry like the ones in Merhaba. Little bit greasy but I wasn't too bothered about the grease. The mix Shwarmaa was really good, tender bits of... More
