What a wonderful evening! I phoned for a table, no problem. We arrived to big smiles and a busy restaurant that was buzzing. We had a lovely table for two waiting for us with olives and nibbles. For starters we went for the mixed meze, all were delicious and flavoursome. They even brought us extra bread, their bread is warmed... More

I finally got round to having dinner here last night having been wanting to try it for a long time. It definitely lived up and exceeded expectations. There was so much variety on the menu, I wanted to try everything! I definitely need to return in order to make my way through the amazing menu! The food was beautiful and... More

Came here very late on a Thursday night and had a very nice meal. Having traveled all over Turkey it was nice to find a couple of unfamiliar dishes on the menu. Service was very good and friendly despite the late hour and the fact we were virtually the only diners. The wine was great too, and prices very reasonable.... More

i have visited this restaurant maybe ten times, on and off for the past 6 years and have never had a bad meal. I visited twice recently and again I wasn't let down. The food is superb. I went with three work colleagues and we all ordered different things with the aim of getting a taste of each others and... More

Have known Agora for past 14 yrs and it has gone from strength to strength as an established restaurant in the Osbourne Rd district - so many restaurants have come and gone but Agora has survived the trend of fancy pizza burger and fusion restaurants by continuing to serve good honest well cooked authentic Turkish food from an open BBQ...

We ate on a Friday night, and was glad we booked, as the proprietor was having to turn people away. I had the mixed grill, Chicken, Shish, Adana and Doner (lamb chops instead on weekdays) Amazingly the doner wasn't the fatty mince type, but the proper Greek Gyro real meat one. All were succulent. They also do fish, and my... More

The restaurant has a good atmosphere in the evening and a good menu. I'm no expert on Cypriote food, but the dishes were varied and tasty, and the prices were very reasonable. Went here with a group of friends and everyone enjoyed their meal.

My Husband and I visited Agora on a Monday night so it was pretty quiet in there. The waiter was professional and friendly. It looked very clean. The food was served quickly and was tasty and nicely presented. The salad was very fresh.The only slight let down is that the mint tea is a tea bag rather than fresh mint,... More
