A Turkish delight!

There are two kinds of people in this world - those who've eaten at Elif and those who are going to after reading my review. I can't rate this place highly enough. Polite helpful staff, fantastic array of flavours, generous portions, buzzing atmosphere - what's not to love? We had a simple started... read 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

Had booked table for six where seated by toilets. Staff came across as nice and friendly. We waited over half hour before our starters arrived we all ordered different food. I was constantly having to move my chair as there was a constant stream going to the toilet. It started to get on my nerves as I couldn't relax. We... More
