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.

Been going to this small Turkish cafe/restaurant since it opened a few years ago and am never disappointed by the absolutely delicious food and courtesy of service. Everything is well cooked, fresh and well portioned. It is comforting to know that whatever time you visit the food is always freshly prepared. There always seems to be free tzasikii with pittas...

Came with a group of friends for a 40th birthday celebration. Could not fault the food or service. Nothing was too much trouble. Waiters very attentive and friendly without being overly familiar. Made us incredibly welcome. The food was incredibly well priced (particularly the platters) and arrived piping hot and well seasoned. The barbecued onions in particular were to die... More
