Came with partner and a friend for belated birthday meal. 3rd time to the restaurant and always extremely tasty meal. Was just before 6pm and place was starting to become full but they were able to fit us in for the excellent value 'early bird' meal. For starters, we ordered aubergine dip with lovely Turkish bread, sausage and generous portion... More

Enjoyable meal with friends. Waiter was very friendly. Relaxed atmosphere and service good. Portions were plentiful and food very tasty. If I was going to mark them down it would be for presentation and the salad was very wet!

We visited this restaurant at around 5.30pm. Ordered from the 5-7pm menu. Starters - halloumi cheese and olives. The olives came with red stuff all,over them which we didn't like so asked if we could have plain olives. The waitress disappeared for a quite a while - enough time to wash the olives(!!!!!) and bring them back to our table... More

Polite helpful staff, fantastic array of flavours, generous portions, buzzing atmosphere - what's not to love? We had a simple started of humous and smoked aubergine pate with... More

Simple food, big flavours, modest prices. Much better on a lunch time when the staff have time to be attentive and helpful. Humus is highly recommended as are the chicken thighs with chilli.

We walked into the room like we were walking onto a yacht, but as a busy Friday night it was pretty good that we got a table for 3 immediately. After having a myriad of people recommend this place whilst in the queue for the free cashpoint on Lark Lane (be careful - choose wisely and cheaply), we were given... More
