Description: This smart glass-fronted caf��, restaurant bar on Belvedere Road is neighbours with the Royal Festival Hall, Yo Sushi! and Chez Gerard in that cultural hot-spot, the Southbank. The 82-dishes (excluding set, special and children meals) offer a comprehensive taste of Turkey's national (healthy) diet. There's kisir, a cold starter of nuts, bulgar wheat, herbs and spring onions. Hearty mains include kuzu guvec, a lamb casserole, and a delicious mariage of runner beans and onions served with a rich tomato sauce and rice called yesil fasulye. There are fish, pasta, rice, and special veggie dishes too. Desserts make an intriguing change from treacle pudding and cheesecake. How about kaymakh kestane - sweet chestnuts sprinkled with chestnuts and served with home-made cream?

You can get a reasonably priced meal in London near the attractions.This place is easy to find and offers a good selection of meals on a fixed price menu.I think it was two courses for £7.95. The houmus and taramasalata were as good as we have had and the fresh bread was first rate and plentiful.The service was fantastic and... More

Comfortable relaxing restaurant, food was how Turkish should be. The staff were welcoming and the boss a real charmer. All food was good and large portions.

Until you get in the door and sit down, they are very attentive and engaging. Lots of push to get you inside, and then no service at the table, very disappointing. Nice decoration, lovely lamps, beautiful colours but frenetic loudy noisy atmosphere. Had to wait for service, wait for food. Which was overcooked-the seabream-and undercooked, the lamb. The bread was... More

After making several trips to visit a friend in St. Thomas's hospital over the past three weeks and passing the Troia which looked very inviting we decided to eat there on Saturday evening. All started well with a pleasant greeting, seated nicely and asked for our drinks order. After viewing the menu which was very varied with a fairly large... More

We have been to the Troia twice now and on both occasions have been very happy. This latest visit was at 9.45pm on a Friday evening and the atmosphere was buzzing. The decor is amazing with lots of Turkish lanterns and the music on this visit was delightful. The staff are very happy and helpfull. Would recommend it to anyone.

We like Turkish food and the reviews were good so were disappointed to find mediocre food and a noisy place where it was hard to hear across the table at 7pm on a Tuesday. We had, as starters, both the Red Lentil Soup (which was pleasant but that's all) and the Chicken Soup (which resembled an Italian minestrone with chicken... More

This is a bit of a hidden gem :) just got back from a lovely meal at this restaurant. It's situated just behind County Hall in Westminster. I think Waterloo station is closest to this. Parking was a bit of a pain around this place, but it was expected considering the location. We hadn't reserved a table but only had... More

I have been in this restaurant in October 2012. I got there by chance, just before visiting London Eye with my family. So, all of us really enjoyed the dinner there. The service and waiters are pretty good. It is worth to admit that I have tried the best Greek Salad in my life there. All in all, did not... More
