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.

My wife and myself spotted this little restaurant during a walk from the B&B into the city centre and decided to call in for a meal. The service was excellent, the food outstanding - authentically Turkish, and all freshly prepared. We enjoyed it so much that we had lunch and dinner there for the remainder of our stay in Norwich.

Myself and a lady friend were fortunate enough to dine at Yemek Yemek last night (on a Wednesday), and had a very enjoyable evening. The food was authentic, portion sizes were more than adequate, and the menu was quite well priced for what we ate (...and drank!). Service was not rushed but not lengthy, the atmosphere was very good, and... More

Have eaten many times at Yemek Yemek over the past few years and one of the main draws is the VERY authentic ambience and traditional Turkish home cooking. Have a couple of the recent reviewers actually ever been to Turkey or eaten in a traditional restaurant? I suggest giving Yemek Yemek a try for yourself - I don't think you... More

My wife and her family are Turkish and they found this little place to be the real deal - proper home cooked Turkish food that you can't find anywhere else in the area. The stews and stuffed aubergines were delicious as was the baklava and we can't wait to return again soon!

We've been to Turkey on numerous occasions and really enjoy the food. Naturally we were quite keen to try our local Turkish restaurant. Unfortunately it was very disappointing, not particularly traditional and really overpriced.

Popped back in some friends to introduce them to the place and they really loved it as we did the first tine we came in. Lovely cosy atmosphere in this family run place - you can see the care and attention that goes into all their yummy homemade dishes (the pide and the guvec we shared this time were both... More

I wanted to like this restaurant - small, independent, family-run and with some excellent reviews on here. In the end I was a little underwhelmed. Service was fine, friendly and professional, it was the food that disappointed. Presentation was uninspiring and some of the dishes seemed rather simple in construction (I've been to Turkey and Turkish restaurants in London and... More
