There is aslo a small and very economical lunch menu. It is spotlessly clean and the service is friendly and warm. We will certainly visit again.

A very interesting meal at Daphne's in Cheltenham. The food was excellent but the surroundings were eclectic! The owners wife has recommended sone dishes and the food was lovely. We had sea bass and the vegetarian was stunning. Well worth it!! Try the meze for a starter and you will not be disappointed!! Worth a visit if we come back... More

Very friendly attentive staff, fantastic home cooked Turkish food, the meeze starter had loads of subtle flavours, lamb special and mixed grill very good, rounded off with a traditional home made Turkish baked honey desert. Good atmosphere, great find

This restaurant is an absolute gem. The food is delicious and presented beautifully. The service was exceptional, they even gave us a wedding anniversary card and Turkish eye key ring. We will definitely visit again when we're next in Cheltenham.

I really love this place: whether you go for lunch, dinner or one of their special events( belly dancing highly recommended) the greeting is warm and sincere and the food fresh and very tasty Do start with a mixed meze and enjoy the subtle flavours. I've now tried all their specials and would happily eat them all again

Although we arrived a little late for dinner, we received an exceptionally careful treatment. The person in charge explain us very carefully the menu (one of us is lactose intolerant and I'm vegan). The food was delicious from starters to main courses, we didn't have place for the desserts. Nice decoration and atmosphere. We will come back for sure.

Finally somebody who takes the time to explain your options to you and what the various dishes are like! And it all tastes very fresh and homemade. Try it and see for yourself. Their stews are particularly good.
