Booked a table for 15 of us from work for a Christmas get together we all ordered from the early bird menu (there is plenty of choice). The food was gorgeous, there was plenty of it and the service was immaculate. The staff kept the drinks flowing and were very friendly and attentive. Everybody from work was really impressed and...

We booked a table for four last Saturday and were shown to a table in the new extended part of Elif. However ,there were obviously too many tables for the space as there was very little room to sit and be comfortable. The table behind us were asked to move up so that we could sit down. As it was...

Found this restaurant online by chance, looking for something different to eat. We booked a table for 6:30pm, so early in the evening. Turned up on a cold, rainy evening, and was immediatley greeted at the door, and shown straight to our table, which was by the grill, so we had the chance to warm up! Service was excellent, very...

I have visited Elif many times over the past year and have never been disappointed. Authentic Turkish food is freshly cooked in house on their BBQ. All meals are of a generous portion and delicious. Staff are willing to go above and beyond to make your night a special one - brilliant customer service. Even received Turkish style coffee and... More

My wife and I unexpectedly ended up in the same part of the city at lunchtime and so decided to return to Elif after a few months' absence due to shoddy service last time. I really can't recommend this place highly enough - when it's quiet! When not under pressure the staff are friendly, welcoming, appropriately attentive. And the food... More

Just eaten at the "Five Ways" branch of Elif on Queen's Drive. Great food and equally good service. Thoroughly enjoyable and good value.

Tasty, tasty. I love this place, but slightly expensive so more of a special occasion type of venue for me.

Last Wednesday, my companion and I made an impromptu visit to Elif. She had eaten there before but not for over six years. We were made VERY welcome by an extremely friendly and smiley waitress. We were seated immediately and brought menus. When I asked what the table next to us were eating (because it looked delicious) our waitress pointed... More
