We arrived without booking, however the staff were happy to find us a table. A lot of the food is cooked over an open fire/ grill and is served straight to the table. Our meal was very tasty and we didn't feel as if we were being hurried through our courses.

A plate of veggie nibbles (cucumbers,carrot, peppers etc) arrived whilst we perused the very extensive menu. My friend, new to Greek food, chose a chefs... More

This was the first time at a Turkish restaurant for my wife and I and we was very impressed the food. very tasty and well cooked, it is a small restaurant with an open grill towards the back of the restaurant which is nice to see the chef cooking. well worth a visit.

Opted to sit by the grill, which was not as hot a place to sit and yet still with all the delicious smells of the food cooking. The service was pleasant and the staff all were working hard. Our food was slightly delayed but that was... More
