Our first visit to Nottingham to see a show at the Opera House. There is a street opposite full of national chain eating houses, and in the middle is Antalya. We chose the Theatre Menu which was excellent value for money together with good quality food. I have worked in northern Turkey and what I had was pretty authentic. The... More

We visited here for a pre theatre meal. We both eat out extensively and enjoy Turkish food.The restaurant was not busy and the dismissive attitude of the maitre d' unacceptable. We were served carrot sticks, olives (excellent) and green chillies as a complimentary hors- d'oeuvre with bread which was whisked away as the first course arrived. My lamb dish was... More

Antalya's is Paradise for anyone that loves a no nonsense meaty large lamb kebab, plenty of kebab, red cabbage and other choices. I highly recommend the place.

We've managed umpteen trips to Turkey and found this restaurant situated in the heart of Nottingham to be one of the most authentic. Great choice of dishes and starters to choose from. I'd recommend a mixed hot and cold meze followed by the iskender kebab. forget the dessert and be suprised by a small platter of fresh fruit and complimentary... More

Have just eaten here and the food was superb. A mixed meze to start and lamb in a gorgeous sauce to follow. Couldn't fault the food in any way. We were all too full to order a dessert but were given a plate of melon and grapes. After our coffee we were given a complementary liqueur and a piece of... More

Been here before and recommended it to a friend. Went back this week and was not disappointed. Good value for money, staff really friendly and meal was brilliant for all of us. I will certainly go back next time I am in Nottingham. Very good for a pre-theatre meal.

Having eaten at the London sister restaurant, we came to try this one. We were disappointed. Food was good but the service was slow and lacked the friendliness we were hoping for.

A friend and I left the theatre after a lovely night and this restaurant was the only one left that would serve food at 10.30. We found the service fantastic and the food was beautiful even though they were closing in 1 hr we never felt rushed and the waiters were always happy to help. The fresh fruit and Turkish... More

I went with my family last week to have lunch there. The food quality was good but it is overpriced and samples rather than a dish. I not recommend it to any one.
