I went for a birthday dinner last month and knew my fiancé would love the amazing food. When we went I was right and we both left with full happy tummies. Service was fast, large portions which were excellent value for money which were also healthy and was a lovely atmosphere you'd miss out on with big chain restaurants. Will... More

Again visiting Agora is a delight. We booked in for an evening meal on Friday 26th and were met with the usual happy faces. Starters, mains were easily selected, especially mains. The Agora special chicken and new lamb dishes were our choices and we were not disappointed. Delishhhhh then some more, finished off with baclava mix pud and Turkish coffee.... More

Best Turkish food my wife and I have had in a long time. Nice wines, great service and above all very tasty food. Without wanting to be critical, there is almost too much food on the menu, but we can wholeheartedly recommend the baba ganoush, iskender and sucuk. Healthy portions, you will not go hungry.

Returned recently to this favourite restaurant. Despite the restaurant being full on a Friday night, the service was characteristically superb. Food was delicious as always and served quickly (in spite of the pressure on the kitchen) with minimum fuss and efficiency. Will keep on returning as long as it stays this good. Outstanding value too.

There is only one thing that lets this place down and this is its very dated décor. Other than that the food is very good, the bread is particularly delicious, and all dishes are carefully prepared and very tasty with an extensive menu of Greek or Turkish dishes. The clientèle is varied, from middle eastern families to groups of friends... More
