Surprisingly good for Hampstead

There are quite a few good restaurants in Hampstead, but there are also some awful ones, so I'm quite wary when trying somewhere I hadn't been before. What a surprise!! Terrific place with good Turkish/Anatolian food which was well prepared and delicious. Service was very good and friendly and I... read more

Dropped by on recommendation, food arrived but meat actually looked and tasted like it had been reheated from the previous night, small portion of meat and rice, but salad was tasty and fresh . All in this was terrible value even for Hampstead. Never going to this place again. Staff didn't seem to care if we enjoyed or wanted to... More

After a day lazing on the heath, we walked down to Zara as we had seen it earlier in the day and thought it looked great. As it was early (5:30pm) we had the run of the restaurant, yet still we had to wait for the waitress to bring us a menu. A waiter (the owner?) was sitting outside smoking... More

We came here for lunch and had a selection of their hot and cold mezes. The food was wonderful, well seasoned, well cooked and generous portions. The bread we got for the dips was delicious. The restaurant was very comfortable, atmospheric giving a nice relaxed meal. Service was friendly and prompt. The prices were also very reasonable considering its location.

The food here is excellent and the service friendly and efficient. We had a selection of the mezze - extremely tasty. There's a real Turkish feel inside. Would really recommend. A perfect place to eat for every occasion!

This popular restaurant at the centre of Hampstead serves excellent vegetarian food with a proper veggie menu. The Moussakka was nicely put together and most tasty. The Apricot fresh juice was a delight and worth at least two goes! Good ambience and wheel chair friendly. Shame about the slightly dodgy service which look like a false economy in saving wages...

A very wide range of Turkish meze, and excellent mains. All reasonably priced. Decent wine list - not too expensive. The cafe/restaurant has a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere, and nothing seems too much trouble for the busy staff. Very handy if visiting the Royal Free Hospital, or after a stroll on Hampstead Heath.

Just moved into the area and this is our local Turkish restaurant. We were really pleased with the quality of the food, the wine and the friendly service. Specifically, the hummus and breads were great, along with the chicken and lamb shish kebabs. Really enjoyed the red wine too. Would recommend a visit!

I have visited this restaurant several times over a period of 3 years. The food is always fresh and tasty. The service is pleasant and friendly. If you are in the area and like Anatolian food, this is worth a stop for a meal.
