Amazing food, always welcomed by friendly staff. It's not a smart posh place which suits me as normally drop in in my work clothes.

It's more a cafe style resturant and the food is excellent it's what I say one of the best Turkish restaurants around the price is great and menu is really good you don't pay for a lot of useless food but food actually you would eat. Recommend it.

Went for a quick lunch here and was impressed with the price/performance. Plenty of waiting staff were prompt and efficient with bread a dips offered before grilled kebabs, followed by a complimentary taster of Turkish desert cakes. Food was freshly prepared and well presented.

I've been to this restaurant many times and at different times of the day. They do not fail to satisfy!!!! The chicken wings are absolutely to die for as well as the Adana kebab. The portion sizes are very generous! The first time I visited the restaurant I went with my friends and I was amazed how busy it was... More

Eaten here since it opened and other than the portions have got smaller over the years, it is just about forgivable as the taste is magnificent, well seasoned, fresh and quick. Increase the portions again and it will be faultless.

I have eaten here for yrs now always during lunchtime. And it's never let me down with how good the food is. The chicken shish is fantastic always moist and never dry. In fact the food here is better than in Turkey. You get a bowl of pitta free when you order and your plate comes with a lovely salad... More

I have eaten here a number of times, and it's just not good. The food is average to poor, with portion sizes decreasing each time and quality falling. The place is badly fitted and badly laid out. The stuff on the walls is just tourist souvenir one pound junk. The toilet facilities are actually outside, were I also noticed they... More

The ingredients that are used in the dishes are OK but unlike other Turkish restaurants in the area there are no free starter dishes.
