A real Turkish experience

The serving staff were really friendly and helpful, making sure we knew what we were going to have and ensuring we got enough spiciness to our dishes.

Can't comment on the mains but the Meze dishes, while moderately tasty, were massively overpriced for the tiny portions. The exception was the breaded calamiri, which was delicious and good value. We picked 5 dishes for 2 people (at £5 or 6 each) and were nowhere near satisfied. We should have guessed when the waiter asked "Would you like a... More

we felt really welcome here just before Christmas. The food was really good and different. The Turkish wine was a pleasant surprise too. Plenty of food, but nice to leave not feeling totally over fed! The owner was interesting and the whole dining experience very enjoyable.

Came here following christmas late night shopping. The ambiance is very cosy, the surroundings comprising of Turkish items. It was fairly busy when we arrived but the service was very good considering it was the 2 owners who seemed to be running the whole restaurant. Food portions are conservative but we left satisfied instead of over full. The meat is... More

I went for business so I wasn't paying too much attention to the cost, seemed decent value and definitely very tasty.

Sitting at home with the wife and not fancying cooking, I remembered driving past this place. Really wanted something different and a reminder of Turkey. Was not disappointed. Great ambiance and decor: service good too! Definitely worth going for something different from the usual fair you get around Norwich.

I came here for the first time last year (November 2013) and I had the Pide which is essentially a Turkish pizza which was delicious however I left disappointed with myself for not trying something more interesting. So finally rustled up enough money to go again and I was not disappointed! For the starter I had: Mercimekli Kofte which is... More

Yemek yemek calls itself Turkish home cooking and it was very much the sort of cooking we wish we could have at home! I thought their homemade yaprak sarma (stuffed vine leaves) were the nicest I'd had for ages, the sigara borek were perfect, and the calamari good - as were the mixed mezze plates. Two different koftes and an... More

Visited this restaurant again & the food & service were well worth it - if you want something a little different to the normal fare on offer then give this Turkish establishment a try.
