Booked a table on the tripadvisor recommendations and expectations were fully met. The mixed grill looked good and in the event we all three chose it. Excellent food and well presented, flat bread with olives and humus nibbles got us in the mood and the wine list is most reasonable. Service was nice without being always at your table checking...

Went there last Saturday with some friends-first time in almost a year, and the food was excellent as always. Started with the mixed meze for 3-4 people and the warm flat breads were great. Slightly disappointed that there didn't seem to be enough on the meze plate to feed up to 4 people as a starter as advertised, but the... More

I had never really eaten much in the way of Turkish food, so was interested to see what was available. The menu offered chicken, lamb, fish and vegetarian cuisine, all cooked to order. The atmosphere was pleasant, and the owner/waiter was very friendly and polite. The food was delicious, excellent service and great prices! Will definitely go again.
