Bow down to the mega grill!

My girlfriend loves this place because her family have been going since they were kids. I thought it's going to be hard to live up to those expectations when I haven't enjoyed this place like them. As soon as I walked in and saw the mega grill in action that all changed, they need the mega... read more

Was really looking forward to eating here based on reviews. When we got to restaurant, it was around 8 on a Thursday night, it was packed; and it is a big space. We only had to wait 15 mins till a table was free. A lot of the reviews for here complain about the service. The restaurant is really big... More

The food here is very good (except for the Meze platter-you can get far better elsewhere) but a little overpriced for what you get. Since the refurbishment the service has got a bit slower and atmosphere has also gone downhill in my opinion. It has lost some of the soul it once had but I am always happy to see... More

Although food might be just about fine here, the gent at the till/owner has no social skills whatsoever, to the point that makes people feel uncomfortable and unwelcome as soon as stepped in. Waste of money.

Ex- work colleagues and I regularly meet for a meal to catch up and I was particularly keen to visit this much talked about venue in SE London. I love turkish food and have had home there for the past 10 years, so I was really looking forward to it. The decor and layout were impressive and the staff friendly,... More

Lovely great value foods. Had a lahmacun starter and kofte main. The food is simply divine. Good portion sizes and extremely tasty. The drinks are also very good value £4 for a large beer (effes). Will defiantly visit again.

A good Turkish restaurant that is well suited if you are going out as a group, large or small. The food was good,well presented and tasted freshly cooked.additionally, the service was excellent with the waiter making suggestions but not over the top. Would definitely recommend.
